The Goddess of Fire
I know it’s been a long time, but we’re taking a break from travelling, so I’m giving this a try again…
Anyway, I’m experimenting with elemental effects for now. This is one of first pieces I am trying out with an original character. It’s also the second nude figure I am doing after Lady of the Water
I should probably do an elemental goddesses series.
2nd piece in my Jean Grey series. First piece can be seen here.
This one goes waaaay back when she was “Marvel Girl”.
I wanted to recreate a retro pinup piece. Sort of like one of those photos wives/girlfriends used to give the soldiers just before they go off into war.
Probably a piece I might revisit in the future when I get a bit better. There is a sense that something is still… “missing” although I cannot put my finger on it.
Any help in this area would be GREATLY appreciated.
I’m currently working on a “Jean Grey” series, and I guess her Phoenix incarnation is as good a place to start as any.
I had a lot of fun with the flames. Used a lot of brushes/layers and spent A LOT of time on them, but it was a great learning experience.
