Did this a few hours after I got off work. I took a refrence from one of BoA's (j-pop singer) music videos. The rest is mostly speed paint.

The pose from the refrence really made me feel that I needed to make the character consumed by something or getting overtaken and being driven mad. I really like pictures that fuse beauty and havoc at the same time, it can sometimes be hard to achieve and ideas can be flying over your head that you just can't grasp at first.

The handcuffs are used to show that the character cannot escape and she is bound, while the glowing butterflies make their appearance from something beautiful to the color of red meaning evil or wickedness for the final takeover.

WOOOT!! Frontpaged!! Thanks for the support everyone! :)


I don't have much idea on what's going on, but it's a great picture! I really do like the fine details in this. It looks like those red disks are coming towards her or something. It's a bit hard to tell. You really do manage to create a sense of being restrained with her handcuffs too.

The fingerless gloves are a nice touch too. You really can see the concern in her eyes. I don't know what this is a reference to. Whatever it is, it works quite well. Her hair seems to have streaks of red from the discs.
