Fi­ness­ing my colours

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

I do a stylised treat­ment on the leaves in the tree canopy, be­cause the over­all tree shape is al­ready pretty stylised. I add white but­ter­flies, be­cause the ear­lier blue but­ter­flies didn’t mesh quite as well with the over­all colour pal­ette, but I still want small float­ing el­e­ments through­out the scene. I add in a vine curv­ing over her ar­moured shoul­der, and fill in more de­tails through­out.

Fin­ish­ing touches

I add some back­light glow around her hair and face from the sun be­hind her, and I lighten some of the harsher shad­ows to help keep the piece look­ing bright and warm. I like the way it looks over­all, so I call it done.
