Tribute to the Stars by Shadow-Wolf Tribute to the Stars by Shadow-Wolf
"A still more glorious dawn awaits, not a sun rise, but a galaxy rise. A morning filled with 400 billion suns; the rising of the milky way."

~Carl Sagan


Piece for ~kcravenyote of her character Niko, which was originally going to be 6 hours, and then I got carried away! I didn't intend for a full background, but I got one. I really enjoyed working on it though, it was a TON of fun. First art of 2012, yay!

Also, I got a really stellar redline critique from *dimespin on the arm closest to the viewer, and she let me draw over it to get the arm right!

Brush I used is made by the wonderful *Dreamspirit, thank you for sharing it with me!

Done in Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos 3
About 18 hours

Such a beautiful creature this and such a pleasant smile. Love how that fire in her hands glows so bright right along with her tribal markings and the lovely glowing eyes as well. Love how everything appears so blue! Love how the magic fires glow is casting itself across her lovely form. Love how you show moment and motion through the arching of the fire between her hands, turning, of her head and tail movement. Love also how one knows there is wind movement by the uplifting of her loincloth. That star filled back ground is an awesome touch as well. Again love all the attention payed to details. Cool stuff1:)

Have most excellent day!

Amazing job! I love it. The background is so detailed, I could stare at it forever, and the perspective on the head is wonderful. This definitely feels like another of your drawings that would have a Foxamoore song to go with it!

Beautiful image with a great show of your anatomical skills. The body looks suberp, and I think you've especially nailed that hard angle with the face. Loving the blue glow on everything. I like the pose overall, how she seems to admire the wonders of the sky above her, the awakening stars brilliance. Very cool tribal tattoos, and smooth colouring. A hypnotic piece, even, because I can't seem to stop looking at it! :heart: Great work!

You should just use blue all the time. Blue and orange. And teal.

I'm putting these limitations on your palette for your own good, I assure you.
