IRL Commission for :iconquendaline: of her character Athura

Athura is a storm witch with power over lightning, and the queen of Asmodeius fav.me/d2hq1zo, king of the underworld in a fictional universe based on demonology and biblical legend

I did learn a lot and had a good deal of fun painting it. :) I initially used a brush to make the ivy leaves, but they didn't look natural, so I went back over them and painted them by hand.

40 hourish, photoshop

Thanks so much to `Rahll and ~PearlPhoenix for all their feedback and help with this.

I love the use of body language to convey the character's attitude. This also gives me an idea for a solution to a costuming problem I've been having in a piece I'm working on. Thank you for sharing.

Very cool! I really love all the details and the character you were able to portray in her pose and expression.

Thanks! I definitely didn't pull it off as well as I wanted to, but I learned a lot with it, so I guess that's good enough for me :)

Great piece, the only thing I have to say is that the ring lacks any shadow while the hand that it is wearing it does. Other than that good work!

Yeah that was literally the last thing I did, I forgot to put it in, so it was kinda rushed :P I'll probably fix it later, thanks for pointing it out

No problem! Sometimes I get so anxious to show people some of my art and I find myself fixing things on it in the middle of talking to them about it!

Hey Caelistic, I have to say I like this piece, because i can see that she is something of Royalty and looks like she's getting bored (Things you were going for), When I see this picture the first thing i see is her hair, and with the hair it looks kind of 2D, I would try and work on giving the hair some more depth(so we can see individual locks, and I would've put alittle more emphasis on her Jewelery,but anyway the form is good (to my knowledge) and I like the peacock feathers gives that Exotic look. Good Job overall
