Seeking Shelter by escume Seeking Shelter by escume
I liked her expression in the original sketch, so I decided to give her a story :) Originally, I wanted her to be holding a candle but there were far too many light sources!
I painting this using almost only an airbrush. I know it's often discouraged, but I think it gives an interesting effect.

I also painted this listening to the AVPS soundtrack. What can I say, it's inspiring :lol:

I really like this one... it's very dreamy looking, probably because of the airbrush. I love her expression!

Oh my, at first i can't believe you use mostly use the airbrush on this one, it doesn't looks blurred at all! ;O
Most of the time when I see ppl using airbrush, it will turns out really blurred and unrealistic, but this one is just perfect<3

Yeah, normally when I use the airbrush I make it smaller in size so that the outcome isn't as blurry :)

absolutely beautiful, I can't believe this is the first time I've seen this on DA! I particularly love the clarity of the jewelry and the bottle in comparison to the soft glows of her skin and the fabric of the dress - And that salmony pink colour - when you focus on it, you realise just how many colours you have integrated together seamlessly, but discretely! truly stunning, cant wait to check out your gallery!

AVPS stands for A Very Potter Sequel! Basically, it's this really popular musical on youtube about Harry Potter :XD: You should watch the first one-A Very Potter Musical!

Sooo cool! I love her expression. What stock did you use for her face? it's the perfect suffering saint face and you just can't find those faces in fashion magazines.
I like the airbrush effect too, it looks like she's lost in her own dream

escume Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2010   Digital Artist
Thanks!! I didn't use any stock really for her face but I took a picture of Caroline's hand as reference for the hand :). How's your saint project going by the way?

The sainties are going okay, going to italy gave me lots of inspiration. On the doors of the st. peter's basilica their are carving of various ways martyrs were killed and tortured, i'll have to show you a picture.

Thanks! I used a reference for the hand that's holding the bottle cause it was giving me difficulties. I also searched online for inspiration for the headdress (and found some awesome headdress in the process), but I didn't use anything directly.
