Sketch XVII by Charlie-Bowater Sketch XVII by Charlie-Bowater
Alright, I'm using the term 'sketch' loosely.

A doodle that I started on my work lunch break. Around 2-3 hours in the end (finished at home).

She ended up reminding me of the Empress from The Never Ending Story, go figure.

Photoshop CS5 and Wacom Intuos 3

I like the strangeness about her, not just pointy ears on a human head, but someting more....

I was thinking that too. I think it's the proportions she applied to the facial features that gives it that strange feel (or one thing I can point out...); it's that kind of thing that we are subconsciously aware of, but don't know how to explain. It certainly makes the piece more interesting!

Exactly! More "elvish" features like these would spice up the genre.

~~Lovely! I love how you remember to include beauty marks (or whatever they're called lol) in your pieces, so many people forget that they exist, I think ^__^ Great piece!

i thought commenting here is useless considering the amount of attention this piece has. but the expression on her face is beautiful ! so innocent has a little hint of zoe saldana but not so much. love the expression and your painting is phenomenal !

I keep ending up on your pages lately and I must say: this is nothing that I'd call a sketch :p
I love the metal details in her hair and the way you draw hair is also terrific. absolutely reference material
amazing work. Keep it up;)
