Dark Lady

Sylvanas, after she was all blue and dead and stuff.

This one I really like. I might be getting a handle on this coloring with Photoshop thing. For real this time. Maybe. In any case I'm making a serious effort to be less precious, i.e. look, you can see brushstrokes this time!

I had a bit of a struggle with the background, trying to figure out how to make it contrast without washing out entirely. (No contrast wasn't an option, as it led to visual overstimulation/confusion. But I also didn't want her standing there in a totally neuter background either.) A bit of blur plus some desaturation did it, even if it did hurt my soul a bit to wash out what I had so carefully colored.

Like the dude said, 'murder your darlings'. It applies as well to visual art as it does to writing.
