Lady Winter by Rayn3ll Lady Winter by Rayn3ll
Lady of Winter: She's my idea of a spirit that ushers in winter.

Done with Photoshop CS5 and WACOM Intuos 4. Skin, hair and fur brushes from DA: [link] and [link] . I'm not sure which snowflake brushes I used, so if you recognized the brush, pls let me know so I can link it. Thanks.

References: me and imagination, really. I did the pose, studied countless of fashion magazines lying around my place, combined what I learned in my head. I like how it turned out, though I have a few niggles. This is my first time painting black hair so I don't know how realistic it turned out. Probably not very. Actually, I think it looks like she has dark gray hair. Whoops! :XD:

At any rate, I still like her, imperfections and all. :heart:

nice! I too am self taught and started late( to get serious about it anyway) have you ever tried to work from a life model? I love the hair grey or black, black hair is a combination of many colors, with highlights of course...any way I'm no expert but I think you are doing great!

I had real life models in high school, but now it's mostly me as reference. Just anatomy-wise though, I don't look that good in real life. :rofl:

I may redraw this in the future; there are some things I've come to realize are off.
