Slight bit of an Oldie this one, or rather one that was sketched about a good 2 years ago and one i finally decided to paint up and get done with about a month back, and polished off today.

It basically started off as a pastiche towards Iron Maiden artwork, in fact pretty much the same as this item done by the wonderful Derek Rigg derek.server311.com/riggsart/P….
Zulie would have been an appropriate choice due to her death mask, and her recent ability in her design to be able to reveal her mask by peeling off her face like a reptile skin. Come the painting stage though i decided to kick it up a notch by going into deeper detail of the jungle and environmental ambiance to go with it. I almost chucked in a butterfly or arrow frog for kicks, but for art narrative i decided to do without.

For MrTuke newcomers, this is my character Zulie Zerpent, a Jungle Witch and Psychic mutant, whose people worship her as a Snake Goddess (ears like a horned viper, rattle tail etc). Asides from IronMaiden, the title refers to her self imposed exile to the perilous jungle of "the Krugeri Dream" prior to the events of the main story of Genma Visage.

Character, Genma Visage and art by me. Done in Derwent Water colour pencils, water colours and felt tips.

Oh, no! That pretty face, ruined - Even if it is only symbolic! :)
Really nice work - And the fact that this all non-digital is worthy of high praise!

A smidge of it is digital i will admit. Sometimes the way i would highlight characters when painting would lose itself when i scan the painting. In old days i would scan a colour painting, buff up the contrast settings and hope for the best (normally resulting in a tanned character turning red). These days i use the lasso tool to smarten the painting up and add contrast in separate parts of the pages. How much certain areas have depends on the overall painting narrative. E.g. The main character at the front will get more than a background character or environment in general. It makes it look more animated too.

Cheers gov. :)

Zulie: Fret not, Lord Sibling. It's hard to shed a skin, but Zulie emerges in full vigor. Hssss!
