'Hope and triumph oftern go hand in hand' This was an art gift for Kelly Anne Winfield. She sent me a picture of her character and I wanted to send her a picture/christmas present for being very kind and willing to converse with me on and off elfwood. Now Stop! Before you comment on this picture, have a look at hers first. I most of all don't want to steal credit for it but would also prefer for you to comment on the character to her and the techniques used for this picture in here. I used my usual technique for shading and lighting but did around three layers of both. The picture is large because I didn't want to loose the details of her hair or tail. I enjoyed doing this one, though I am a bit annoyed about the lack of clarity to her addonment feathers (not the wings). I also wanted to see what I could do for the background and origional rendered the background temple and trees in 3D, as this was my first render of the trees using this program I realised they weren't what I wanted and just painted my own. I attained the backgrounds perspective by making the grass and the doing some major distortions to get the perspective right. Character © Kelly Anne ~Pheonix~ Winfield Sketch in mechanical pencil Photoshop 7.0 It's been a while since I actually did this picture now. I've spotted some mistakes and might do another version with a wider chest and some other oddments. Sorry Kell, no offence but this porbably isn't my best picture to date. Still *smiles!* have a look at her gallery guys. It's nice and big and colorful!
