Another painting of Kasca, the lead female character in my Archon novels. Photo ref of Jessica Alba used for the face.
This is after a massive battle in Book 1, which takes place at Moffett Field - which happens to be a real place; an old air force base with giant hangars.
The tallies on her arm... during this particular battle, she uses a fingernail to scratch a notch in her arm for every 1,000 men she kills. Like I said, it's a massive battle.
There is a huge amount of vector in this, though all texture is painted using regular brushes.
Tools: Photoshop CS3 / Wacom Intuous3
