The Tower

My participation for the Character Design Challenge of July 2017!
Theme of the month : Tarot
''A mysterious Fortune Teller has just arrived in your town. No one knows who she is, nor where she came from, but rumours claims she owns a unique set of Tarot cards: when she shuffles them and then lays a card on the table, the character in it comes to life..''

I designed a personification of the tarot card "The Tower". 
Elements I kept ( or tried to keep ) from the original design:
- The lightning 
- The crown
- The collar of the gown and the crown are a reminder of the top of medieval towers
- The two ribbons symbolize the people falling
- The rock at the bottom
- The tallness

I've tried quite a few new technique on this one. Found a fun little tutorial to do the lightning, used my new Kyle's watercolor brush for the sky and the shadows. Also took a bunch of time with the lineart to do a lot of variation with the lines. I'm quite proud of this one and hope to be able to archive again that kind of coloration!

That is most clever and stunning piece, love her strong commanding form and the perceptive. Very much has the silhouette and feel of the tower images.
