A Moment in the Sun



Kalanni takes a break from buttkickery to relax in the warm evening sun.

I had this idea in mind for a while, but could never really get it out too well. I got a chance to try out a lot of new techniques on this, including hatching style shading, which i think I've fallen in love with. Mucho thanks to ~iDNAR for steering me in the right direction with faces, and I also gave SNK's process of detailing a shot. Everything flowed quite well, i think.

The idea here was to have a fairly high contrast pic that would showcase everything I'd been working on for the past two years; material definition, shading, dynamic pose, expression, and overall feeling presented by the drawing. how many materials do you see in this picture ^_^. Kalanni has such a fun costume...


Photoshop, about 20 hours. (it would have been faster but i had to figure otu my style of hatch shading)
