Been wanting to do a Morrigan fan art for a long time now >:3
This piece was very experimental. I tried a lot of new methods and techniques I'm unaccustomed to; some of them worked for me, others...didn't lol. I spent a lot of time going back and forth messing around with this, trying two different versions, different effects, blah blah blah. I finally got it to a point that I feel it's done. I'm not completely happy with it - particularly Morrigan's face - but it's time to move on...
I used a few different tutorials for this from Imagine FX, including an old cloud painting one from #75, the wonder woman cover tutorial from #82 (mostly for grayscale building), and the backlighting tutorial from the more recent issue #92 (although I changed the lighting scheme a bit for this). It was my first time colorizing a grayscale painting and I had to fight with it a lot to get it to where I wanted! I might just have to get more experience using this technique to get it where I want, but I really prefer straight on opaque painting.
But I digress... I hope you enjoy this despite all my frustrations!
Morrigan and Lilith are from Darkstalkers, ęCapcom
Here's the drawing alone:
