This is a piece I did that is loosly based on a friend's role-playing character named 'Blayde'. We used to play Warhammer Quest a lot, and the characters are still with us several years later. Someday, I'd like to run more games in the world we'd built.

The original piece was a test-render I'd done of an Aery Soul model called 'Justice'. I heavily overpainted and added a dragon in the back based on the Millenium Dragon. My goal was to offer a more 'painted' look, simulating a more classic style of portrait.

After finishing the piece and showing my friend, she informed the the character in the RPG was blonde. Oh well...

Is there a way I can just stick everything you've done in my favorites? Still love your work.

Well if you did a picture of a char of mine, I would instantly change the hair color, to whichever one you painted her/him with :D

this is 3d or 2d render?
Reply
:icondouglasshuler:
DouglasShuler Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
It started as a 3D render, but I completely overpainted it and heavily modified the original. It's essentially a 2D piece.

Nothing for ages and then two cool pieces. This is my favourite, love the character of her face. I can imagine someone looking like this and not the usual V4 women with flat noses.

Thanks. I've been creating pieces for various projects, but just haven't had the time to upload them. I'm trying to get stuff online more quickly.

As for the V4 women - yeah... sometimes they can look a bit plastic. That's where most of my postwork time goes.

Justice is a really nice set. Did you know AerySoul is on DA? They're using the name :iconalfaseed: now. I really like the painterly effect you use. You're one of my idols when it comes to incorporating 3D models into 2D illustration. Keep up the awesome work! :clap:
