unseelie

A lunchour speedpaint I made in a rush from a really old sketch I had. I really miss paintign faerie-tale creatures and dark magical stuff. My job is all about bright, clean sci-fi which isn't my personal favorite. It's fun, but I get sick of all the white white white sometimes and just want to make something muddy, murky and dark.

This was meant to be some sort of fae-witch, originally with a hawk as her companion, but I didn't have time to paint both her, her body and the hawk in 30 minutes so I had to settle for the face. I like the sort of woky, askew look of her face with eyes set wide apart and that pointy chin. Playing with facial proportions is fun.
