The Lotus Dancer



EDIT: Changed a lot of subtle things, repainted the face, tweaked with shadows, etc. Hope this gels a bit better now! To see the old version, check out the WIPnation thread:…

Sketch Diary -…

"If you should visit Asteria, be sure not to pass up the Garden of Hasath in the Lanes of Honey and Roses where they grow the most entrancing 'blooms'. "

"There, Lotus Dancers whirl among the lotus smoke of the patrons, their bells and sighs making the sweetest of music. If you are inclined, good sir, you may enjoy a private blossom for your sole delight. To be sure, your trip will be memorable!"

Trying something new with digital by layering colors on top of a grayscale image. You can see all the steps of this image at the wipnation image thread.

My goal was to use concepts from my own fantasy set in a desert universe to create fake Magic the Gathering type cards for a portfolio, this particular image being the first of what I hope to be many! I'm not sure if this would make a good card or not, but I'm still very proud of all that I learned while creating it!

I feel I should thank Zephyri while I'm here. She guided me at every step with encouragement and advice. Thanks, Sam!
