30 Monster Girls Challenge # 16 - Ghost

And we’re back!

She was left half finished for a while now, but it’s time to get the second half of this portfolio building challenge underway.

She is the ghost of  pc meltdowns, her presence is signaled by a chill and faint static.

And ectoplasm … .

Edit: Tweaked the lighting and smoke. 
I’ve been on a bit of a break from anything really art related since starting my new job about 5 months ago coupled with being absolutely burned out still from school.
I’m incredibly rusty, but I finally kicked myself and sat down for about 5 hours listening to the OST of American McGee’s “Alice” and pumped this monstrosity out. Getting back into speed concepts and Photoshop as something other than illustration software. Also a chance to practice using color for lighting instead of strictly overlaying straight black/white.
Everything was composited from ref photos I have saved or found online, coupled with paint edits and photo manipulation. Really just done for fun to get my flow back and kill a lazy summer Saturday.
Rather long write up this time … . . I will continue the Monster Girls  series in the coming weeks as well.

30 Monster Girl Challenge # 15 - Reptile
Officially half way!! I&#8217;ve sure been taking my time with this challenge since # 1 &#8230; . .
Armadillo Girdled Lizard, desert girls have no need for clothes. 
I needed to take a break after busting out the first half of this list and putting so much time into each piece for the sake of my concept portfolio. But I will finish this list, no doubt about that. 15 more to go, bring it on!

I haven&#8217;t done any actual photo manipulation in a while. Been slow on the drawing so here&#8217;s something fun to get the creative flow started again.
Can you guess which Final Fantasy is my favorite?

Last one for now.

Just an onslaught of big hair and a ton of pink with a touch of crazy.
