Blast from the Past 1

Part I of hopefully a series of old Works in Progress that I will finally finish.

First on the list, an ancient unfinished shot of my pirate lass Adjanah:
And here is the result! I'm very pleased with it. Was a lot of fun, not least to see the progress I've made since back then. And's always nice painting doing shots of this gal. :D

Excellent imagery ... not enough like it!

Not a complaint or anything, but her left hand is way too big, and once seen I can't unsee it ... throws the visual balance off a bit.

Still love the whole thing  --  the pose, her look, the stance, how the boot hooks onto the reinforcing mast ring ... its great!

A sexy female pirate. I can't help myself. That's going straight into my pants--- I mean, my favourites. Very nice piece. Got some striking colours and enough interesting lines and angles to make it well balanced.

How long did this take you again?
BluntieDK's avatar
I dunno...about 10 hours all in all I think, when counting the sketching of the old pic into it. :)
