Just playing around with costumes and colors again. No other point to this pic, really. The woman is a character from an old comic idea of mine that never got anywhere.

The usual. Start to finish in Photoshop. No references.

Fantastic. Love the hair, the expression on her face, the sword, scabbard, the gloomy weather outside... Dare I say breathtaking.

I know this is going on 3 years old, but this is a GREAT piece... too tired to give an intelligent comment (it's 3:13 AM here.... ahhh fatherhood), but this is great in so many ways.

Only the hair is a bit weird, or was she just moving her head?

This is amazing work, HB. As always I am awe of your computer painting skills. The color in this is so rich, and yet not overly chromatic or distracting. You've given me a goal to shoot for in my own work ^_^ I've put your beautiful calendar on my wishlist, I will be purchasing one as soon as I get paid again. We miss you in the fanfiction world, I hope everything IRL is going okay. Ja matta ne! :)

You are very talented. I was wondering- what do you use to achieve the texture and look on the fabric? Could you tell me a little about how you did that? Did you draw in the tassled edge by hand or did you have something you could use for it?

Thank you. ^_^

As always excellent color and form, the cloth and furniture look real enough to touch and feel its silky effect.

The background blur on this, no offense, seems a little excessive to me, but that is really a personal matter, not a mark on the art itself.

In the end though, it is the expression on the face that captures my attention, holds me, this saddness but resolve that brings a curiosity to the eye, as if she is about to go accomplish at task she does not at all relish. *Bows*

Wow! It's gorgeous! I love all the detailing you put into your pieces - the decor on the katana sheath is amazing, and the fabrics... look so REAL. I feel like I can reach out and touch them, and they'll feel exactly like how I expect them to. Very awesome work (as always)! I always love your art. :D
