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.
