Adventures with Mariella by Alene Adventures with Mariella by Alene
A personal illustration for a middle-grade story I've been toying with. Mariella is a 17th century ghost on a mission, and she is not amused that it has taken over 300 years just for someone to notice her. 

:star: There are some initial sketches and an animated progress gif on my blog: alene-art.blogspot.com.au/2015…

Media: Adobe Photoshop CC on a Wacom Cintiq Companion 2
References: No direct references, pose references my own, and of course I googled barrels and torchlight on caves and stuff to check what things should look like.
Textures: From cgtextures.com (textures used to add a little extra to the cave walls and door)
Time Taken: No idea, somewhere in the 17-22 hour range. 

Enjoy! Comment! All that jazz! =D

I love the costume on the ghost girl. It's all very well done!

Thank you so much! I enjoyed designing Mariella's dress, I wanted something really obviously historical, but I don't often stray into the seventeenth century. 
Thanks for the :+fav: too! =D

Surely a bad pun is a good pun? ;P
