Painterly Demoness


Spent a good chunk of my day working on this piece.
It's satisfying to have made something I finally feel is print-worthy.

Messed around with three different brushes to create this piece.
A soft round airbrush, a spongey texture brush and a chalk pastel brush.

Woah! This is really amazing!



YES! I adore this! You're really getting good at doing horns by the way! I like the blushing at the tips of her ears, and the way the light plays off of her hair and horns. The faintly distinguishable scales on her hand are a nice touch, and her eyes are nicely liquid looking. My main suggestions would be to include the collarbone, and to sharpen the curve of the heel of her palm, to define the wrist a bit more clearly. Great job!

Very interesting piece. I love the color combinations and the character ominous and mystic.I'm taking a guess she's an Incubus. Th tail feels seductive to the piece, drawing your eye back which is good composition.
A few notes to consider. The purple smoke seems to indicate that it's emitting light from below which some areas feel like purple light is hitting in different directions which would help if you had some more surfaces that are also being hit by the emitted smoke or off screen light source. Secondary light is a lot of fun but choosing how strong it is and where it's coming from, making all the difference in your piece.
If you were to do a revised version, areas like under the chin, nose, ears even a hit in the eyes since they are very reflective. This would be my personal taste but I would go are far as under the cheeks. You could really define some features but I would play around with the opacity. You would want to keep some contrast so play around and have fun with it.
All in all, you did a great piece. Hope to see more soon ;)

P.S. if all of this was intentional, disregard the long boring text xD

Aw thanks for the lengthy and insightful review!
I appreciate you taking the time to write it -- always means a lot coming from a talented artist like yourself! Cheers.

I like your suggestion of using multiple light sources - especially with the lighting under her jaw and eyes... Might touch it up if I get a chance now! Thanks!

P.S: Not that it matters any, but an Incubus is the male equivalent to a Succubus - so she would be the latter. :P
