This is a splash page for Mr-RedX
Comic character Empress.
The character concept is quite interesting. Empress is an amazon type protector of the earth, kinda like powergirl meets poison Ivy and they have an illegitimate love child together type thing. very cool idea, I encourage you to have a look at Mr-Redx's gallery for more info on her and her lover Juu Lee (girl on her lap).
I enjoyed trying to get the right impression of sun filtered light on the two characters. I have never appreciated diffusion more! I think this is my first "pretty" image like...ever? I have mixed feelings
Done in Photoshop CS5.
Time: Over the last month and a half
It took me several tries, three full Wips later I managed to get it right.
Feel free to crit or comment!
