Hello friends of #Hiveblog, today I want to share with you my first entry to the @Splinterlands contest.
For this opportunity take the #Runemancer-kye card.
I loved this piece, from the beginning the concept of mermaid and harpy seems beautiful to me, besides the reference (original drawing) is very well done and honestly I had no vision of what I could improve at first glance, so I decided to adapt it a little to my style and I think I got a pretty nice piece.
To begin to fit this piece I went directly to stain, I almost never work this way, I usually make a sketch far away, but let's say I dared.
I started to put strokes and shapes until I was satisfied with the result.
Let's say I treated the piece like a painting.
I used some base tones and then I tried many lights.
You can see the whole process in the steps of the drawing.
In the end my result is very different from the reference, but I loved it, I find it a refreshing vision of the original piece, and I feel satisfied to have been able to achieve that evil aura that the character has.
I hope you like my piece.
