Cayenne

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is a drawing I did of a dwarf I play in an RPG. Her name is Cayenne (duh), and she has floor-length, flaming red hair. I can't draw free-flowing hair for anything, so I decided to contain it somehow. I thought this might be an interesting hair style to try out... I got a tablet! This is my first piece of art with one, and in fact, I started her without it. Most of the stuff I'd done on it got redone with the tablet, though. :) Done almost entirely in Photoshop 6.0, aside from a quick sketch that was scanned in. This picture contains about 100 layers. I'm a nut when it comes to layers. I also did my best to avoid using anything but the brushy brushes, with either airbrush or the paintbrush. I think it worked out well. I used my fiance's boots and pants as a model, and my own shirt as a model for that. The cirth on her axe are intended to spell her name phonetically. I don't know why she has her eyes closed. Maybe because she's looking directly sun-ward? Well, actually, it's because I can't draw eyes, but you know. ;) Yes, I know, the hand is terrible. Be nice in your criticism, please; this is the best thing I've produced in months and I'm kinda proud of it.
