This image is about a newborn Vampire, the turning in process.
There are various story elements, the scratches on the floor suggest she was losing control, maybe had pain… The heavy chains first meant to imprison but later to keep her in control when she starts losing her mind as new vampires do when they cannot control their thirst.
The girl is lost and in pain.
The vampires wait for her to cross the side, to join their family.
In case someone wants to know why the girl is not clawing/pulling the material between her legs, I wanted the hand relaxed, I had the hand pulling the cloths first but that looks too post orgasmic…
The image is best viewed on black BG.
The painting took me about 2 weeks, a lot more than most of my usual work. I had real model for anatomy reference and pose tho I made many changes from mind later on. All cloth is painted from mind, I love painting folds.
Kids got their hands on a real magic book, trying to summon a golem using their toys as a base.
I have chosen a less realistic style for this one, tho not too cartoony.
I wanted to have a certain fun factor but also serious elements.
The summoner boy is in a wheel chair, I want to show that despite a handicap he still is the leader here. With his pose and gesture I wanted to give him a more sure expression and take away the feel of a handicap, making the wheel chair looking more like he sit on a trone or something.
The other kids are placed under him, just a small symbolism.
The Kids are nit doing this for the first time probably. What I did not want were overstretched comic poses like WTF IT MOVED!!!
I tried to keep that I little bit more subtle.
The colors are fairly friendly here and the mood turned out fine I think,
It was important to have a friendly image despite all the pentagrams and black magic, golem. I don’t want Satanism.
The creation took me about 1 week. I used some simple 3d geometry for perspective and base, tho most of it is al painted. I will post the original linework later.
I like the idea and how the image warps at the sides. Although the soldier on the talkie doesn't seem to be looking at the baby but rather at the ground instead, like he stepped in something. And the one that is opening the diaper, his thumb is not far enough behind it. It's more like it is just touching his finger.
Everything else looks fine as far as I can tell.
Yes you are right about the thumb, its on my list and will be fixed.
The guy on the phone is not looking at the baby, i tried different directions but i personally like it when he looks elsewhere, it disconnects him a bit, makes him concentrate on his call.
While looking at the baby it would have a different feel, his call would be all about it.
The image is not 100% so i might change it, i dunno
wow... i really like where the second one is going
i really really like it when people show the steps in their process. I think it is one of the most valuable tools for artists both learning and learned. To see someones process helps to improve or create new ideas for your own process.
