AVATAR - 2d - FireSunFox - The Dawn Wood Witch

Hi,

My concept is inspired by the work of Arthur Rackham, so it's going to be very fantasy based in look and idea.

The story:
In the most ancient time the beings of this planet enraged the very earth into summoning into life the most powerful of Tree Spirit's, mother of all mythical creatures "The Dawn Wood Witch". The avatar of this planet. A woman seemly one with all around her. She alone sent all back to the way of nature, and washed clean the page's of history, leaving nothing of before.

My final image will be of her birth. I'm yet to figure out colour, but I'm thinking of mono tones and working in landscape.

Software:
Photoshop

I'm really going to try mostly traditional techniques on this one, I'm sure it's going to be fun. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!

wow, I didn't notice your sketchbook before.. really interesting concept, I like all those buildings and also the face next to "face like wood" sentence - is it made from memory?
I'm curious on your work when it's finished, keep it up

your concept sketches r cool .painted one looks little odd than ur sketches . I know it is on the process. her hands r not looking feminine.I think u have to work little more on that . show ur work as powerful as ur pencil sketches at final . Hope to see ur final brilliant piece .
This is what I saw on ur work.

Yeah I know what you mean, it wasn't really a great sketch at all, just some thing to try out paint.net with. My main issue with paint.net is the lack of brushes or really to be able to edit the one you get.
I was thinking of the same thing about making this image more about the line work, maybe Hoang Nguyen inspired? (very Japan) I'll try to get something up before I get on to the final to show what I mean, it would be a jump for me, I'm far more a painter, custom brush maker/user.
You know all about the brush work!!^^

Ahhh....No more internet access?

What a time to go over my internet limit. It's not so much the jump back to dial up, it's the being cut off at peak times, which has seeing as it's hoildays and all left me with no access for the past 5 or so days.

So a quick update: On to drawing up the final, hope to be able to post anything after the tenth when my next/this month's access kick's in!!!

New smilies???
