Isaria in Pixel Art by Draicor - Splinterlands Art Contest #156

in #splinterlands2 years ago

Good evening hivers! For this week's contest I decided to make a pixel art drawing of one of splinterlands' team members, @isaria, a songwritter and composer and also a great artist! I recently discovered her music, my favorite song is kamera, check it out, its really good.

I would like to have a legendary death card that boosts magic damage, since there are so many magic monsters in the death splinter. I made this card with only one ability, to increase the magic damage for only 3 mana.

I used two of her photos for inspiration.

The first thing I did, was download the legendary card of mimosa nightshade from the Splinterlands game and removed mimosa from it.


Then I drew her cloak, but I forgot to take a picture... by the time I remembered, I took this one.

After the initial drawing, I removed the white lines and added some shadows and highlights.

This is how the shadow layer looks like when I hide the other layers.

Turns out Aseprite has a built in gradient tool that draws gradients as easily as click and drag.. I feel like an idiot lol, I was doing gradients manually, duh..

This is how the background looks like inside the empty card. I tried to stick to the same color palette as the original untamed death splinter card.

And after I put everything together, this is the end result ^^

I also want to say thank you to every single person that has upvoted my art, my last drawing got over 500 upvotes and frankly, I was really surprised, so, thank you!

Whoever wants to see Isaria as a legendary card in-game, say aye in the comments! lol just kidding (it would be cool though).

Thanks for reading, if you want to support me please leave an upvote, and if you have any suggestions or tips for me, I would love to read them, thanks!
