Updates much!
Been a busy few days.

Here is the character design I've been working on-and-off on for the last month...A demon that at first glance looks human. He has a few eyes incorporated into his tattoos, which is actually his skin (well his nails are black and he doesn't seem the type to paint them ;p).

Corel Painter 9.5
15ish hours or so...not really sure though.

Bouguereau's painting Tricoteuse

After seeing Yumedust's coloured colouring book page on her DA, I decided to do one of my own. I settled on Esmerelda, of which I coloured using the colour pallete from Bouguereau's (yes the same artist as Yume, but hes one of my fav's so i figured it was ok ;p) painting Tricoteuse (the first image). Intially I wanted to use his painting "Rest" for the colours (I have it on my wall) but decided to go with a more restricted colouring scheme.

Oh and for the record...digitally painting stone is freaking hard without using existing textures. I did use a combination of dry brushes and pastels in Corel Painter 9.5 which did help, but got tiring after a while. No photo textures used and only reference used was the Bouguereau painting.

5ish hours
