Desert sands update

This is as promised an update on the desert themed painting I'm working on in my spare time. I've been working a lot on the elven mage outfit. I had to change the corset design, I just wasn't happy with it, the shape just made her torso look funny. I like the new one a whole lot better. I've added some patterns to the silk shirt and changed up the colors on the cloak and pants.

I've also done some work on her face and a magical effect test. Not really looking forward to fiddling with magic effects but I'm not shying away from the challenge. I figured I'd give the picture a nice pink/purple/blue  night sky. When I decide properly on where to put my light sources I'll start adding some more dramatic shadows and highlights ^^

Hopefully I'll get the opportunity to work some more on this piece next week.

I'm working on a personal piece at the moment. It's going to be a desert theme. It depicts a desert elf mage walking into a house/ruin. I'll be posting the progress as I go. I'm doing it in Photoshop, because I need the practice. 

This is the original sketch,

And this is where I am in the process right now.

If anyone has any ideas on how to improve it or details that might contribute to the overall image please do so. I want it to be an evening picture, but I might change my mind..

WIP- Alma Lodaka

This is a black pen line art drawing of Alma Lodaka, mother of serpents. She is a Dragon lord. This character belongs in the marvelous universe og Mr. Raymond E. Feist, she can be found in the books about the serpentwar. Awesome books and awesime character, even if she is evil and twisted. I'm going to try to colour it even though i really like this simple line art as it is.

This is probably the closest I'll ever come to making fan art

Any opinions?
