I painted this last year and it appeared as a step-by-step tutorial in ImagineFX at the time, but for some reason I never posted the final online! It started out as a personal painting before I was asked to turn it into a workshop, and I think I wanted to polish it just a bit more after the fact, which is probably why I forgot to post it in the end.
Anyway, I still sort of like it, so here it is!
The painting was inspired by a series of fantasy movies that had the most profound influence on me when I was a kid. (An influence which is still very obvious in my work now!)
I remember sometimes dressing up in a green tunic and belt, running around with a toy sword. Other kids would ask me who I was supposed to be and when I replied "Princess Fantaghirò!", all I would get in return were confused looks. So if you happen to know and like the movies (except 9&10 of course, yuck!)
, you are officially awesome in my book. Fantaghiro
will be my role model forever <3
