Nice topic this month! I always like mysterious subjects. :silly:

I think I have a nice little idea of a female cleric.... Let's dance for Luna.





If I had a world of my own,everything would be nonsense.Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't.

I have a lovely ref for this, just need to do a little ref on the symbolism and history of the god.

No smudge tool was harmed in the making of this image.

Hey Cherry Cherry bo banny :P Awesome composition so far, I really like the lighting and soft warm colors you have developed from your initial sketch. It has a great atmosphere already which is cool to have encompassing a character, that lighting is pretty strong already!

Atto, don't sweat it about the last challenge. That's how matte painting developed, it's used in Hollywood for set designs all the time on huge blockbusters, you should develop that skill in your sketchbooks and other venues so you can have all art styles in your toolkit. I'm always and forever will be a sucker for plain art fundamentals, you can make some amazing stuff just by perfecting the basic skills! :woohoo:

That's a lovely concept for the theme, Cherry. The picture has a beautiful sense of flow and movement to it.
Make sure you check some reference for the standing leg. It's worth taking a bit of time to measure and shape the relationship between the calf and knee because this idea could work very well indeed!

I have been AWOL so long but I hope it's OK to try to come back by joining in a challenge (rather than help Banj and Kazky moderate :whistle: )

Considering my track record of late (which mostly consists of taking naps) I probably won't finish, but here, at least, is a start...






(Initial sketch + some sort of value sketch.... I think I have forgotten all about anatomy :P)

Any an all misspellings are henceforth blamed on the cat.

Welcome back from AWOL, Charlotte! Everything's still in the same place around here so you should feel comfortable. :)
Nice start to the picture too, I love the expression of focus and concentration, and that already looks exactly like a moon in the background!

Thankfully I haven't forgotten any anatomy. You can only forget things if you bothered to learn them in the first place. :P

Cherry: Nice start. Very dynamic.
Charlotte: Interesting composition. Her head is a bit too big.
I want to depict the cleric as a kind of medieval Viking priestess. I don't show the moon in the painting. It has to be clear for the viewer that she is looking at and worshipping the lighting up her pail skin.

What looks like sheep wool needs to become fur. I will need to find a way to get the texture of fur right. Her mouth is a bit off, needs some tweeking. I’m also not sure of the framing, maybe she needs to be a bit lower in the picture.
