The Fire Realm by keelerleah The Fire Realm by keelerleah
Commissioned for :icongentlefoot: of her half elf half human character Dawnfire Northstar as a cover for her upcoming book. The title of the book being 'The Fire Realm'.

A recent favourite of mine. I couldn't be more happy with how this one turned out. The background especially, turned out better then I had expected (I did reference lots of stone pictures to get the shading and textures more or less right). The dress too, turned out better then I had imagined. I did struggle a bit on the ruffles and I blew countless hours on detailing the armour, but I'm happy with it now finally. ^^

Painted completely in photoshop.
Pose reference: [link]
Multiple stone references used for the back.
No Critique desired.

Amazing job. I like that she is in a dress. Most of the time you see girls like this in armor so the dress stands out great to me. I love the coloring and the feel to the piece. Love this all together.

You're very welcome!
You have such interesting characters and great settings that they always lead to very interesting paintings. I'm always flattered that you come to me for your book covers. ^^

Oh, I also changed up the title of the submission as well, to match the title of your book (As I did with the previous submission).

I guess the only good thing about the long wait is that my skills improved more during that time... so it should end up turning out better. ^^
