Ashe Thinks You Kinda Rock

This is about as close as we'll get to Ashe's approval.

The first major project of my REVIZE 2009 series, where I go back through my gallery to finish old works that were never completed—or in this case, not completed to a satisfactory level.

During the summer of 2008, I was experimenting with different styles and decided to try an illustration without relying on my usual heavy outlines. The work Ashe Thinks You Suck is what came of that.

It turned out great for the most part, but I was never completely satisfied with her figure, and particularly her head and face. However, my need for Ashe fan art was satisfied for the time being, and I never really looked back after its submission. I surprised myself, then, when 'Ashe Thinks You Suck' became the first old work that I wanted to take on for this series.

I've made countless changes from the original, but the most obvious is the removal of shameless advertising for my now-deceased website, FF-ILLUMINA.NET. The shading has been cleaned up extensively. Her figure is also heavily modified to better proportions, and alas, her face is finally at a quality that I'm pleased with.

The book she is holding is particularly interesting, as I've managed to include—and write about—several of my Ashe-related works from the past, including the original version of this illustration. It sure makes a hell of a lot more sense than that blank black-paged book she used to hold.

Beautiful.  The smooth application of colors, shadows, and lighting makes her glow.  There's also a nice balance between warm and cool colors too.  Plus, the amount of details on the subject and the background are perfect.

I really love the facial expression. That seems to be the most prominent part of the picture.
