Feel my pain

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Matti Spets

A collaboration with my friend Alimare, she provided the awesome pencilwork, which I then repeatedly mutilated, first with ink and then digitally. The pic features two of our roleplaying-characters from a MERP-campaign (Middle-Earth RolePlaying game). Nemo (aka Aryon Eagleclaw) is a rather short-tempered and extremely paranoid opporturnist wizard trained in destructive magic and motivated by revenge, while Firenze is a kind and innocent elf ranger/watercrafter whose apparent carelessness and reckelessnes often tends to irritate Nemo. The pic shows an actual instance from our campaign when Nemo finally fell over the line and cast some painful magic at Firenze on point-blanc -range. More kerp-art can be found at Alimare's gallery in devArt, go check it out. This is the first bigger project I've completed using the Wacom-tablet I purchased in January, yay for finishing it finally. This one took painstakingly long (3-4 months), I painted and repainted several areas over and over again, but I dare to claim I learned something about using Photoshop, my tablet and digital colouring somewhere along the process. My skills in both inking and digital colouring are still poor, so any criticism at all is most welcome! Special thankies to Alimare for providing Firenze, the original pencilwork and a lot of high-quality criticism during the process. Firenze (c) Alimare Nemo (c) Me
