The Predator by dahlig The Predator by dahlig
A sketch created mainly for the purpose of practicing lighting turned out to look quite ok, so I ended up finishing it. I had loads of fun painting this one and it went along rather smoothly, too :)

For those of you who read descriptions, here's a link to some screenshots I've taken during painting: [link]

Created fully in Photoshop with a little bit of Painter.

close up this looks awful.. badly smudged arms painted in the direction of the arms..tacked on hair..

when marta has no photo to paintover she is at a loss.. and cannot bring a badly smudged painter/photoshop disaster to life..a pity..

as always the photo ref of the face is done better ..but the rest shows her rather poor painting skill..

Your link doesn't work. I get "Server Not Found". Oh well this is some fantastic work. I really enjoy the dark beauty and moody feel of this most imaginative work.

This is beautiful. She reminds me of some mythical creature you would find outside of a castle or a cathedral. Also that you made her hands claw/talon like and her feet bird like. The lace is beautiful too!
