Finally got some time in between client work to crank out some personal / portfolio work! As with most great ideas, I had the first thought for this in the shower, I just randomly envisioned the headpiece and thought it would be cool to make a character based on it. Originally she was a much lighter character, wearing all white and being a sun priestess, but as it progressed things got darker and darker, but I'm ok with that.
Also tried a bit of a new process by jumping right in to color rather than doing value with washes on top, which was a lot of fun; and saved progress shots all along the way,
so I'll probably either upload a step-by-step gif or make some kind of walkthrough of it soon.
Process is up, check it out here! [link]
Thanks for looking!
