beautiful composition. I love the colours, and movement in the BKG. Nice cloth too.

Wonderfully alive and energetic brush work which makes the painting all the more beautiful.

Thank you for sharing this.

Thanks also for mentioning Artrage. Being new to digital paiting I hadn't heard of that particular software package.

This I call FINE ART!

Great work man! Surprisingly I have never though on using PS + Artrage together! Thx for tip!

this has such a wonderful sense of color, and the brushes are so effective in creating movement. fantastic work.

Thanks everybody !
I'm really glad of the brushstrokes used on this pictures. Glad to read it's successful.

The clothing, the design and the character herself are classical and historical, because of the commission and the subject. I just have to manage enough fantasy and atmosphere to add to the piece without going too far.
The background was done using traditional sample of painting and canvas, artrage and photoshop.

Rubsrubs : and you forgot the abstract brushstroke here and ther. My fav parts of the image.

Trower : I hope so.

Woadiestyol : it depends but references are often necessary (how drawing a cow if you've never seen a real one ?).The most important thing is to never be prisonner of your refs. By being too close of it, in most cases the results is really poor and cold. You must make it yours and going further. Sometimes by talking about references, even when drawing a robot, a photographic ref of a car can help you to understand lighting and reflection, mechanic...You must understand your ref and adding it to your own mental "library".

PIPS : thanks

TheCleaner : I really have a lot of fun with it. It is like a kind of toy.

Jdsb : thanks too I've only posted four images on CGtalk.

Dasomen : I'll post more here.

Libor : still using traditionnal samples (scann of real brushstrokes, sketches, canvas, xeroxes...) can add a lot to a picture.

Thanks everybody.

I am always really excited to see you post a new piece.
(I mainly know them from gfxartist).

You are such a big inspiration when it comes to dynamic - composition and stylish brushstrokes.

Oh! And I just noticed you made some illus for the Vampire Rolebook I have here next to me on the table
