Character Concept by AaronGriffinArt Character Concept by AaronGriffinArt

This is a personal piece again and a chance for me to invent a character of my own. Unlike my other pieces which relied on photos for reference... this is pretty much out of my head. I used reference for the eye... but thats it.

I have developed some new techniques in this one such as scuffed metal, hair, clouds, rips and tears, grazes and blood... including further practise with skin, eyes and textures etc.

Credit given to :iconwojtar-stock: for the metal texture you see in the mask!

Step by step video... [link]

Painted in Photoshop CS3 and a Wacom bamboo tablet. I hope you all like it!

And as usual, i ask you to show respect... this artwork is not to be stole, copied or edited by any means.

EDIT - I have had sooo many people saying how much alike this is to `adonihs which is definitely something i was concerned about... i was and am still only starting out, and he has been such an inspirational artist to myself. His work has certainly helped me practise. This piece was after all a practise piece only. I would hate to steal the thunder of such an amazing and devoted artist... if you have to, i would like you therefore to consider this piece an adonihs/lms inspired/tribute practise piece!

EDIT 2 - Made the eye larger pointed out by *toadboue

Thanks a lot!

Nice piece. Reminds me a lot of Dan Luvisi's work.

Unreal! The detail and texture is just awesome. Great work! Do you have a version without the mask as well? She's got killer features.
