My tiefling warlock. I just wanted to fart around with effects and THE SHINIES because I was so sick of doing observational work for school. I'm pretty blah on this because it's sort of a pointless pretty picture, but it was nice and brain-numby.
I promise I'll do some epic Sylvie soon.
UPDATE FROM THE FUTURE (3/23/13): This piece is really important to me artistically because it represented the shift in my art from line-based work to my gradual evolution to a more painterly style. It was an uphill battle and very frustrating for a while and it paid off.Inspired by [link] with permission. I can't recall who made the swirly brush; was in my unlabeled folder.
