The Commodore

A kind of a necromancer concept, I wanted to mix tribal and military styles.
Done for ImagineFX - Painter X Texturing Workshop (hints at various uses of different brushes, some tricks etc).
If you want to read it, track the free supplement to ImagineFX Issue 15.

Absolutely wonderful, I especially like the faint scars, her clothing, and the casual disdain in her expression.

Love the contrast in shadowing + the detail with a gothic look.

in the large version of this image marta paints directly onto the photo image of the face..the horns are her own smudgy style while

the face retains the gloss of the original photo..if you have worked in photoshop you will recognise the problems of merging your brush with a photo layer..

the obvious difference in texture is clue that dear marta images are paintovers..

three different styles are line beween the photo and marta working in her own dragged brush style..
