Um... Ia? Ia? F'thagan? by StudioUnderhill Um... Ia? Ia? F'thagan? by StudioUnderhill
This one marks the second in a series for a targeted portfolio mailing, aiming at a few RPG publishers and print magazines. Admittedly it's a bit more... whimsical... than I think some of the folks usually look for, but I prefer to think of it as dynamic range.

I do have somewhat of an issue with the lighting in this case; there's an effect that I added in the end that, theoretically, would make for an annoyingly complicated lighting issue. But hey. It's magic. It doesn't have rules*.

This also marks the second inclusion of Bob The Skull. I like Bob. I think I'm going to randomly stick him in a few other paintings, just because.

(And as a fun little easter egg, take a close look at the book she's reading...)

I think this is an awesome piece. I'm absolutely going to order a print if I can talk my wife into letting me hang it anywhere in the house....

Tell her that this piece has been proven to improve the feng shui of any room, bringing peace, harmony and prosperity.

Ok, the prosperity mostly comes to ME, but still...

I could probably whip up a proper one if there were enough demand.

Hahahaha! Great picture. I also have a copy of that book in my collection. Really useful for beginners! XDD
The picture is really funny and it's very well drawn/colored at the same time. Great job!

I like the expression on her face. The highlights could be pushed a little more. Her body seem a little out of proportion but not terribly so. There is a scale problem that is screaming at me though and that is the size of the skull and the size of her head, unless it is a demon skull but then it should look more demonic.

Heh. I added Bob The Skull in towards the end of the painting, mostly because the scene called for one (and I need to check this, but I think there was part of one in the stock I used as reference), but also because Bob's ended up being a figure I like painting. In this case, I made him slightly out of scale to the witch in the scene because it let me be a bit more expressive with him.

I'm fairly sure I can justify this with barely remembered descriptions from my art history class back in college, but enh. It's 'cause he looks cool.

That and I thought a Plushy Cthulhu would be overkill.

well I don't think that a Plushy Cthulhu would be overkill [link] although I did this piece a while back.
