Hmm I forgot exactly how long, I put it down in between starting and finishing it. I'm sure it took anywhere between 20-30 hours. As for learning to paint... Practice practice practice! There really is no shortcuts I have found.
they saw her armor and thought for a second, "This isn't your safest armor, i mean easily get killed armor". They saw her thong, then said......I think the armor is the distraction of perfection. Then his head was on the floor and got a better look, his last view before he saw a light.
Nice picture I must say! I am planning on Cosplaying the Dark Lady at the 2013 Blizzcon! --Anyways, the Dark Lady can only transform from her High Elven form to the Spectral form of only a Banshee because that is what Arthas resurrected her as after he ran her through with Frostmourn!
Don't you think it's strange how the Queen of the Forsaken's corporeal body is always portrayed as being pristinely beautiful? You know, it doesn't exactly mesh with the "condition" of the rest of her subjects... I wonder if anyone has ever mustered the courage to draw her in a more realistic (read:rotting) fashion. I'm sure I'll face the outrage of necrolyte fanboys everywhere for that sentiment alone, haha.
All of that said, its a great-looking piece. Grats on the DD!
Wow, beautifully done! The look that huntress is giving really brings a lot into the piece. I can't help but feel that the trees are a little silly looking in comparison to the character in focus, but perhaps that was intentional. Also, I think you could have played a bit more with dark tones in the sky and added a bit more of a glow around the huntress' head. But beautiful job, overall! The perspective is very well done
