Planning The Assault [C] by Astri-Lohne Planning The Assault [C] by Astri-Lohne

Another commissioned painting of Arwen Nightbreeze for one of my favourite clients! I designed Arwen back in last year, and this time I got to design a completely new character of my own from scratch too :D 
Was very inspired by Kan Liu, Alan Lee and Ruan Jia!

This is awesome, the whole scene is very beautiful and interesting too. I love how recognizable Arwen is here, the moment I saw her I thought it's gotta be the same person as in your older painting. The poses are also very natural and I really like the whole composition of the picture.

It's also a funny coincidence that I've been staring at Ruan Jia's work pretty obsessively the past week, especially to see how he paints armor, and when I saw this dude here I thought there was certainly some resemblance to one of his paintings... You did a great job though, your textures and use of color are really inspiring and I love seeing how you create these pieces, it's really motivational and the speed paints are incredibly helpful too, so thank you!

I love how you used grayish colors for the shadows at the beginning, then used the digital layers for details, more sdadows, half tones, reflected lights, highlights, and proportions of the bodies.

"Then we shall strike here once we get the signal and-"
"Why did you put a knife in the map?"
"What?"
"That's a hand drawn map. You put a hole in this perfectly good map."
"Well... I had to pin it down so it wouldn't roll back up."
"We are in a forest. Grab a stick or stone. Or just ask ME to hold it for you."
"... I think we are getting off topic."
"And I think YOU owe a mapmaker an apology."

Before reading what you wrote I was going to say, it reminds me of Kan liu style ... You nailed it! and what's beautiful about it, is that the drawing is still keeping your style identity at the same time. <3

I wonder why people planning attacks always stab their maps... these are innocent maps! What have they done to you?

And beautiful painting, by the way ^^

Your work is brilliant and this is no exception, a truly talented artist.  Nice to see a piece that depicts a scene too as opposed to the usual single portrait.

Thanks for sharing your works.
