Lady of the Earth

The last of my Elemental Goddesses series. The rest in the series are:

Lady of the Water

and

Lady of the Flame

and

Lady of Metal

and

Lady of the Wind

So, this is a wallpaper of an Earth Elemental Goddess.

I’m trying to capture the “mood” of each elemental where water is sombre and serious while fire is wild and happy. Metal was supposed to be a strong, powerful character and Air a free spirited fairy

With Earth, I was trying to channel a life giving entity (hence the “World Tree”). Also, I thought the Earth was different from the other elementals, so I gave it a rainbow-colored background rather than a single toned one. The figure was more than a little inspired by The Birth of Venus by Botticelli

Lady of the Wind

Lady of the Wind

Lady of the Wind

Ok, this is a continuation of the series of nude figures I am doing. Previous pieces in this series are…

Lady of the Water

and

Lady of the Flame

and

Lady of Metal

This new one is of a Wind (or Air) Elemental Goddess.

I’m trying to capture the “mood” of each elemental where Water is sombre and serious while Fire is wild and free. Metal was supposed to be a strong, powerful character.

With Air, I was going for a free spirited fairy kinda look.
Technique wise, I had a bit of problem thinking of a way to render something non physical like “air”, so I used leaves to try to create a “moving” effect… not sure if I succeeded

Lady of Metal

Iron Maiden

Still experimenting with elemental effects for now. This is one of first pieces I am trying out with an original character. It’s also the third nude figure I am doing after

Lady of the Water

 

and

Lady of the Flame

 

After the first two pieces, I decided I should do an elemental goddesses series.

So, this is a wallpaper of a Metal Elemental Goddess.

I’m trying to capture the “mood” of each elemental where water is sombre and serious while fire is wild and free. This third piece, metal, I am looking for a strong, powerful character and hence the “punching through a brick wall” effect

Technique wise, I am trying to create a Silver Surfer like effect for her skin, but I am currently lacking the necessary skills. Will prob revisit this one day

Wings of Rain

Nightwing in the Rain

Nightwing

Took a long break because I just quit my job and am now travelling the world with my wife! (True Story)

I had a lot of fun with the rain effect. It’s the second time I am attempting this after a try on Daredevil:

Devil Rain

Used a lot of brushes/layers and spent A LOT of time on them, but it was a great learning experience.

This is still one of my first works.. Still trying to find my “style”

C&C most welcome

Thanks for viewing

Jean Grey – Super Model

3rd piece in my Jean Grey series.

This would be the Grant Morrison’s New X Men version of Jean. The period where they all decided that spandex was not practical for the X Men. I personally think it is a funky/modern take on their costume. This was especially for Jean, whom I think would look like a hipster Super Model in the outfit.

With this piece, I am attempting to create a piece that looks like a magazine spread. There are 3 elements in here that I am experimenting with but was never very comfortable with:

1) Fashion piece (because very simply… I am a guy…)
2) Typography… hope it looks a magazine article’s
3) Black and White renders (I always like colors more… so in the end I succumbed and added a dash of colors still…

In a Flash

It’s New Comics Day again!

Really excited about the latest installments of Flashpoint, in spite of myself…

Decided to do up a piece on The Flash….

Slightly different from what I’ve done previously…

The thing about the Flash is all about his speed… Trying very hard to capture his kinetic nature.

It’s also one of my first time experimenting with a non black background. There’s a lot more to consider with regard to the color scheme to make sure that everything “goes”…

There’s also a lot more modeling to be done then the usual works…
