Angel and Shadow - On Opposite Ends
Another portrait(s) of these two. Photo referencing is harder than it should be, arg. It's hard to try and make sure both faces match and compliment each other. Especially with realism. At first I tried with a profile view of shadow, but that didn't work. I tried I tried. So many revisions. Angel definitely looks, hm, nefarious here? The angle of her face was a challenge. Not sure I got it right. Shadow looks rightly concerned.

I'll probably die drawing these two. I can't express what a joy it is to explore their character through different styles.

Just fyi, Angel and Shadow are code names. Angel's name is Leara, and Shadow...well...

One thing I forgot to do while painting this is, something I might create a tutorial for--start the sketch with a caricature because during the process of refinement, the painting becomes more subdued. In order to keep the life and vitality of the expression, you start with an exaggeration and gradually refine it toward "accuracy." I knew this, but I forgot it over the years. Because of that, I lose the essence of the expressions. Next time.

I've also been thinking a lot about the current division between people caused by current issues in the media, and how it poses us apart from each other. Once friends, now enemies. It's something that makes me mourn but also makes me wonder what will come of it all. Angel and Shadow sort of encapsulate the freinemies concept. Shadow has to confront Angel as something she never thought Angel would turn into, something Angel always fought against.

Fight
So this would be how Shadow and angel work on a daily basis...rescuing people from a virtual reality. Angel is an idol, but Shadow is a fighter.

Drawing this, I realized that I'm getting too old for fantasy/scifi. I much prefer intimate portraits instead of action scenes. This feels a bit emotionally empty to me, but I should share it still.

After the Rain
AGAIN. This time I actually like how Angel looks. They can always be better.

Like I swear I'm trying to draw other things and characters but they're not turning out very well atm. Like a character sheet for Dust to Dust, featuring the A-team: Adrian, Alfred, and Azrael. I've never been able to draw Adrian very well, though. fsdjf lsfjlsjflsdjf jsfjslf j oh well

Simpler times
I know you probably have had enough of these two. Well, it just happened, okay?
I drew Shadow, except she looked like a deer caught in the headlights. Not intentional. Then I was like, this must be a photo. It's fun how art can take you places you didn't know you were headed. Can be stressful, though, not knowing.
Unfortunately, Angel does not looks at all like the model she is supposed to be based off of. Shadow, though, I love her face. Makes me happy.

Angel and Shadow from my story Ouroboros. A snapshot of a time before everything fell apart.
