Guard and Girl

A new little painting.

it is part of a larger painting... sort of. I cropped a part out of it to test the style I want to use for the image.. and I really like how it turned out :) Workflow went smooth and quick!
Nonetheless I think I need to bring a bit more colour into it... normally there's a nice play of different shades going on in red hair which I totally messed up here.. the guard on th eother hand works fine and has some colour variations going on... At least  I know what to keep an eye out for when doing the bigger painting!

some WIP for you:

Ah,. befor I forget: Part 2 of the " Creating a Story Illustration " walkthrough will be postet next week! Promise!
