The process animation for my interpretation of my dear friend
as Ciri from The Witcher 3. I took an export image at the end of every night working on the piece, converting each photo into a frame. You're seeing 20 nights of progress here, some nights better than others.
Ciri is a cosplay that Mogu is currently working on, which I used the early photos of as a basis for the piece. One of the few artworks I have done that did not start on paper, this was 100% digital. It has been a very long time since I've done anything even close to this shading style, almost 2 years, so there was a lot of recovery of skills that took place. At one point, I was finally happy with the skin but then did the shirt at a better skill level. I sighed, and redid the skin.. two more times. And a touch-up. Let's just say that it took a lot longer than I was really planning on.
Mogu helped me get a some details correct, and it was a pleasure working with her as always. I am happy that you like it, la cara mia amica.
Total Time: 60 hours (I had to completely redo the skin and hair like 3 times)
Medium: Digital, Wacom 13HD
