Title: Fire ...um...monster...
Post by: Bard Judith on 08 December 2013, 20:57:12
I called this a Fire Giant in its first draft, but it seems to have warped and changed as I worked on it.  

Per Art's half-remembered suggestions (since I can't seem to find the original posting of this), I've redrawn and reworked the painting for:

More crispness and three-dimensionality
More texture
More light and shadow play
Hand-drawn 'flame' texture on the body

I've also added more expression, sparks, and coals.

Can this pic be used for our Fire Giants, or is it too Elemental, Fire Goblin, Fire Spirit - ish now?

Oh, fewmets.   That's what I get for staying up past midnight.  (rolleyes) Thank you so much, Alt; I'll fix that when I get home tonight.

There was something missing there, wasn't it? Thought so as well...  :grin:

Anyway, the original posting of this and my comments was on Facebook, hence you couldn't find them here... Anyway, glad to see you hanging around once more on the boards, Judy, for a change :)

Bard, seeing you posting once again is like a breath of fresh air.  I've missed you.  :thumbup:

O faithful Seeker, likewise!  The mundane realms have claimed me too long, and the black dog haunted my steps.  But lo, I have shaken off the chains of oppression that bound me to my tasks, and slowly I regain my joy and creativity.  Perchance this land will see me once again...

HUGS!

Um, p.s.  I added the picture to the first post where it was supposed to be.   Now you can all comment and critique a picture you can actually see....

Great update here as well, Judy! Especially love the smoke effect, and now our guy also looks grimmer and makes quite a challenging opponent I'd say. Cool stuff, will be added to our Giants overview! :) Aura +1!

Wow, what a way to have a steambath!

Great picture, Judith - better than any New Year's fireworks I saw this year.

And great to see that you're alive and drawing.

Hugs,

Shabakuk
