avenging winter princess by zano avenging winter princess by zano
bow in hand... arrow after arrow... revenge and hate, taking a cold bite at her soul.

16 and possesed by the northern spirits that aid her in her quest, the once exiled princess tears her way thru the tainted castle in a cloud of lights and smoke.

Never resting, neither flesh, blood or extreme conditions matter anymore, only the sound of the winter creatures falling and hitting the ground as she fires.

one by one the personal guard of the false ice queen fall. Until there are no more, and no false ice queen.

----------

Done for the weekly chow activity at conceptart.org
photoshop and painter.

comments and crits please.

Me gusta este dibujo - recuerdo desde la competiciòn. La emociòn es evidente en su rostro y su cuerpo.

Por curiosidad, cuanto tiempo hace que usas la wacom? Solo lo he probado hace que dos o tres semanas.

found you in ImagineFX, this picture actually made me stop in my tracks whilst i first flicked through before my lesson started, it stood out because of it's pure essence.
Really love it and I can't quite find the words to explain why, but it's breathtaking.

you could get even better results with traditional, i use tablet because its the fastest more accesible way for me, and cheapest in the longrun.

im a cheap scrooge-ass bastard, whacan ah say.

id like to try my hand at traditional in the future though.

MegaGeekSerious Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2007
iono, i cant seem to get the same brush effect as that tho, like it wont fade after each stroke...its kinda hard to explain. like when i make a brush stroke, the value is the same throughout the stroke, but i dont want that

zano Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
when you work in traditional you have to delude the paint with water or solvents and brush your way thru. the media also is a very important matter, acrylics and oils can be harder to create, "fading" strokes since those are thick paints, also melting down the color with the surrounding colors of the area you are painting helps a lot, in digital you just have to adjust pen presure, flow, scattering in photoshop, or painter.

Practice and experiment with whatever media you have, is what everyone will tell you, and it does work.
the more you use it, more understanding of it will come. nothing beats hard work and thoughtful practice.

lol, actually i was talking about painting with a mouse on a computer instead of using a wacom tablet lol. but that was some useful information u give me

zano Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
ouch...lol. no man, digitally you need a tablet for those kind of strokes you talk about.
but you can still achieve very good results with a mouse. Again, look at chamba.
