Dark Sorceress

Full digital painting of a seductive dark sorceress character. I tend to use different processes for different projects, depending on a number of factors, but this time I chose to go a very traditional illustration route.

I started off with 4 black and white thumbnails, just to brainstorm compositions. I wanted to show her using some sort of dark magic power while using the moon and some trees as the background. Once I decided on the composition I liked, its a pretty straightforward process of enlarging the art and filling in the details. I also changed some colors to set her off against the monochromatic background. Below you can see the step by step process, going backwards.
