Water Mage by tjota Water Mage by tjota
video time-lapse here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pMU0b…

Photoshop CS6 / wacom Intuos 5 medium
1-hour sketching
5.30 hours rendering (as seen on the vid)
3-5 hours of planning, thinking, daydreaming, and sexting in between.

The idea behind the staff is to make it look like water magnet. Some scientific bits for you right there, lol
Clients have been very picky about female character's face (and overall quality) lately. They keep asking me to try harder!
here's one practice piece to see how much i could push my realism colour palette on a character.

Turned your set of Elves into a set of MTG planeswalkers.

Hope you like it!

Made an entire set built around these  of an MTG cards based around these pictures. Worked hard to try and create a world and personalities through the flavor text. Let me know what you think.

Odd for a water mage to not have a spec of water on her.

No no i didn't mean a dress made of water, I meant she'd probably be soaked using water like that...but now that Im looking closer I think i can see a damp sheen.
