Fantasy Portrait Session Two







I tried to get a good shot of the ivy on the tree, the twisted roots and rocks. I am trying to get all the big decisions in about the drape of the fabric on the fire mage's gown and cape. It is important to get it the right length for the subject's height, which meant adding a little bit more to the bottom. He is a good deal taller than her, but I want to de-emphasize the difference in their heights, so they get equal billing in the portrait as a whole.

You never cease to amaze me with your detail work. Could you teach me how to paint? Pretty please?

It's coming along great.

I got my book already and enjoyed it! Good job.
