Really cool! I love the design of her mask. And the color palette is very nice as well.

Amazing execution as always, im just not a fan of the pallettte, but that just my preference-anti complimentary-colours.
i love the design on the mask

Thanks!

It is an odd choice for a pallete. She's an old, evil necromancer, and I wanted to convey that sense of unnatural magic. I think black with purple or green would have worked too, but I wanted things to look hot, and immediate. Impending, building danger. Like a power up of evil. Or something.

I don't know if it quite works, but part of the idea was how things look right after a flash of bright light. Like we as the viewers were creeping around in the dark, with just torches or something, and in a flash of green, necromantic energy, she announced herself, and our eyes haven't quite adjusted.

I see it now,and it is awesome!! Yeah its really cool like that,are you trying to say the viewers are goblinlike creatures?:D
SteveArgyle's avatar
Well, I'm pretty goblin-like...

This is just ... BOSS!

Am I right, hoping it's an L5R card?
SteveArgyle's avatar
Well, this one is actually for a D&D module called "Seekers of the Ashen Crown," that just came out a week or two ago. I haven't done nearly enough L5R art recently... Got to fix that.
