Dinorah-Shamaness by Hori Dinorah-Shamaness by Hori
I've been working on this for...a week, I think.
For some reason, is was really difficult for me and I'm not sure why. I'm having a hard time lately and my hand just doesn't want to do what I want it to.
I'm somewhat happy with the final result, I think it's cool, but there are a few things that I'm not happy with in terms of shadows, but I can't fight with it anymore. You live and you learn. I learned a few things while painting this and that's what's important.
My newest character, Dinorah has been going through an upgrade and some development lately. I'm pretty excited about it and I'm very happy to be working on her, I think she's cool.
She was supposed to be an amazonian warrior but now's she's a divinor/shamaness. I have a few designs/ideas for her in my back pocket and I'm excited for her future, so keep a look out :)

I may have gone a little overboard with the back lighting ^^; but I suck at it either way. heh.

Not surprised it took you a week. It's super detailed. And hey, who can have too much back lighting amiright?

I'm in love with her lips.

I really like how you mixed in super detail and some simple colour to make this. I love it. :)

the lighting is amazing you do not suck!!

she looks so creepy! i like it! her eyes are like staring into the depth of my soul, i like the glowy red eyes with the red all around them, the red highlighting on her skin and her hair. her hair is so beautiful, i love the way you do hair. i like how defined her facial features are, especially her lips. they look so plump and gorgeous.
the circlet thing looks amazing, i think it looks really real, the shading of it is great and i like how you made it look like chains, i think its very detailed.
i think my favorite thing is the little skull on her head. its so creepy but i love it. i like its little teeth and the shading of it as well. its so cool. her feather headress is very interesting design, i havent seen many headresses like that. she looks very evil.
i am very happy that you finished it!!
ah i love it!
