Color by `vest

Catching up the gallery with some of the commissions I pulled together over the last couple weeks. This one, a really awesome shot of Witchblade. Really went a bit overboard with the details on this one. If you check really carefully on the full view, you'll see I even added little interiors and furnishings within the small windows in the background. I believe that it's always those tiny unnoticeable details that trick the mind into thinking the image is far more complex than it really is. Take a blank wall, seems completely undetailed. Then draw in a few suggestive lines for bricks here and there, and suddenly, the eye thinks the whole wall is made of bricks. Give just a couple of those bricks some cracking, and the mind will then think all the bricks are aged. Maybe a bit of dripping paint along the top, now the mind thinks the entire wall is older than time itself.

Just the small details. You don't have to draw every atom of a surface. But if you just put little hints here and there that there's more to the image, the mind will unconsciously fill in those details for you.

Except for Withblade's armor. I actually did have to zoom in and shade every quark individually.
