I created a digital painting (selfie). And then decided it might be an idea to do a feature on other peoples self-portrait works.. So I asked around and this is that feature result:
Nelvana is a powerful Inuit mythological figure, protecting the people of the North with her superhuman abilities. She is the daughter of a mortal woman and Koliak the Mighty, King of the Northern Lights. The gods were outraged with Koliak and his marriage to a mortal woman, and therefore is no longer visible, although his spirit is manifested in the form of the Northern Lights. Nelvana draws on the powers of her father and the Northern Lights to fight super-powered Nazi agents in the North.
Dressed in a fur-trimmed mini-skirt, knee-high boots, matching gloves and adorned in a headband and magical cape, Nelvana’s superhuman powers include the ability to fly at the speed of light on a giant ray of the Northern Lights. She was also capable of calling on the powers of her father. She can melt metal and disrupt radio communications. Nelvana is telepathic and can turn invisible, as well as change her physical form.
I'm a software engineer at Khan Academy, an education product, with a background in fine art and illustration. I'm a huge fan of communal learning through critique in artist communities.
Feel free to note me with questions or requests for critique! I really enjoy giving advice and constructive feedback to other artists. I'm best at giving feedback on composition, tonal contrast, and visual storytelling.
Also check out ProjectComment! It's an active group for artists to give each other direction and advice.
