The Storm Queen by cobaltplasma The Storm Queen by cobaltplasma
This had been another piece I used for warm-ups when doing other works, drawing little spikes here, swishy cloud-things there, nothing too much.  Slowly it just kinda grew on me so I thought about fleshing it out fully, had some time late last night (and I couldn't sleep) so I took it to color and some finishes.  I think I'm done with it, well I can always come back to it, if I want :)

This piece still makes me excited to potentially commission you for cover art in the future. My allowance got upped so when the time does come I'll be able to afford it easier :)

(Don't think I've forgotten ;P I'm just trying to get something finished for once, I've got commitment issues. I keep breaking up with my main characters in violently heartbreaking bickering squabbles.)

I LOVE THE COLORS. How did you create the paint mixing and swirling effect? It looks so much like real paint, or like those suspended paint things in water! THIS is what legendary mythical creatures should look like, not those pseudo-animal chimaera-like things. Creatures outside of the human realm should look absolutely metaphysical, and this is exactly it <3 <3 <3

Thank you very much :D I'm really glad you dig her design, she's the queen of storms, after all :)

The mixing and swirls were done with an Oil Pastel brush used with the Smudge tool; it's funny because using it to paint generates a regular-looking brushstroke but it gets pretty crazy when I use it to smudge :)  Over that I do some light rakes with a different brush with the Smudge tool and that's about it ^_^

Again, thank you very much!

Thanks :D Total time was about 6-8 hours, I'm not exactly sure since the base of it started as just some light warm-up stuff and I ended up falling asleep a couple of times I was working on it ;^^.  But yeah I think no more than 8 hours total.
