Flame and Frost by Del-Borovic Flame and Frost by Del-Borovic
Another Commission for :iconcorneliusvanrichten:- seriously, he's got all the babes o_o

All of the ideas of this and pose and such were all thought up by Cornelius, I just followed what he wants!! I actually rather like how her armor came out, which was cobbled together through a bunch of references. And, amusingly enough, named after the two things I searched on google images to get references for the effects xD wa-cha!!

I actually rather enjoy this way of painting, regardless of it taking forever (but that's partially my obsession with very minuscule things xD;; ) Hope you like!!

Sidenote to deviants:
Also sorry sorry sooo much guys that I haven't been replying to comments. I have like 60 in my inbox that I'm meaning to get back to- but this past week (and this following coming) are going to be INSANE for me with due dates on projects and commissions. So put up with me for a bit longer, please? Oh oh, and I promise comics are happening. Comics are SO in the works you don't even know. So happy~

So wonderful. I love how she's outlined in a slight golden glow. The texture on the fabric came out realistic and just so ... touchable for a 2D image. and OH THE FOLDS of the fabric on her sides, the folds! so perfect. You did a good job on the flame coming off the sword. I've neglected DA for so long and look what I've missed.

This looks FANTASTIC, utterly fantastic. Everything, the color scheme, the layout... the fire and the ice both look absolutely beautiful. So you used Digipaint? *creeped though other comments lol* What program is this, and where can I get it. D:

So lovely. I just love the effect of the blades, how her armor, face and the amazing background came out. But next time I'll commission you to draw a guy. :D

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like. I really had a lot of fun with this one- the blades especially. I have a characters that uses a magic ice blade as well, so it was great to finally work out what effect it would look like! I'm very pleased you like the background as well- I was worried like "hmm, this doesn't look simple like the reference >_> ...oh well" hahaha, I tend to get carried away xD!

This is awesome except one thing:

I think her eyes look weird, kind of like they are looking in different directions. Maybe the pupils should be a little bit closer to each other.
It's a bit hard to put my finger on it.

:icondel-borovic:
Del-Borovic Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! And yeah- I think actually the problem is the reflections. I sat and tweaked them forever- but, putting the reflections on the inside (since that sword is so close to her face) instantly makes her look crosseyed and weird. There wasn't really a way around it- I looked at myself in the mirror for reference, using a light in the same place, but... because of the way it shades the eye, it really makes them look weird. I promise her eyes looked normal before I added in those highlights <:3

:iconast0815:
Ast0815 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009
I have absolutely no reason to not believe you. ;)
Maybe no reflections in her eyes at all would do the trick? Or does that look unnatural?
Reply
:icondel-borovic:
Del-Borovic Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Maybe it would! her eyes actually looked better without the reflections xD but then that would make absolutely no sense- unless her eyes are some kind of o_o light-eating black holes...

:iconast0815:
Ast0815 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009
She is wielding flaming and frosting magic swords so I think light eating black hole eyes would be fair game. XD

Love the swirl in the background. Really draws the eye to the focal point of her sword and face. Great watercolor texture and tones.

Ahahahha it could be either!! xD And thank you! I did spend a while on the details in this- since her armor was more complex than things I normally drawn. I really did enjoy it, sassy ladies are always great (as long as they comply ;3)

And thanks!! Some of it is, next week for sure will be seeing some of it get done ^_^
