Comm/Areal Athil

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Commission WorkThe idea was to show both sides of Areal, with Areal as an anthropomorphic version of herself. Here Areal is holding an emerald, a gem of the heart, while Areal Athil shadows her and shows her hatred for the beauty of the jewel. I made Areal Athil more draconic and bestial in appearance to try and capture her ferocity and oppositeness (new word for the Livvi dictionary) of the two personalities....I had so much to put in the description but I've forgotten it all OTLI HATE SCALES NOW AND FOREVERThose of you who came to the livestreams while I painted this will probably have a better idea of just how delicate and frustrating this painting was |DI really challenged myself with this piece; I really wanted to push myself and see what I was truely capable of, and I'm more than pleased with the result. It took longer than I would usually expect a commission to take but in the end the details were worth it; please please please download to see them all!Lighting wasn't a problem at all this time round, thanks to all the practice beforehand. It was fun in a weird way, the scales provided a different oppurtunity to test some new lighting conditions. I wasn't too sure about the green/red/purple colour combination at first but ended up loving it.First time trying scales in this method, I love how they turned out but they took forever so I doubt I'll be using this method again- although I expect with some practice it would become quicker. Also the first ever time I've done a gemstone, and again I love the outcome.Character is not mineArt by Olivia Brookes
