Splinterlands art contest | Ilthain
Hi guys! After two days working hard on my entry for @Splinterlands this week, I finally managed to finish it, this kind of full body drawing is a very difficult job even for me but I like to do them from time to time to get out of my comfort zone and so I learn more and more about anatomy and especially to paint fabric which is something that sometimes costs me a lot, this time I chose Ilthain's card which I liked a lot because it is different in some ways to the cards I've done recently, the color palette of the character is a bit warmer but I wanted to add a background that combines warm and cold, a turbulent but colorful background, which makes highlight and add a different contrast, it was quite difficult to reach the final result but I am very proud of the fabric especially the fabric of the shirt that, although it was not perfect see it quite well, I hope you like it and enjoy the process.
I made the sketch for which I wanted to make Ilthain with a suit similar to the card at the top, however at the bottom I wanted to design a slightly different suit and painting her legs covered by transparent black stockings, I began to paint the skin placing the base colors without detailing much, then in another layer I began to give more shape to the face and other parts of the visible skin, without being very detailed since I have learned that these full body drawings do not need so many colors to create a form, I was painting part by part of the drawing, I continued with her cane for which I used a range of gold tones and began to mix them to give it some realism with shadows and lights, then I continued painting the collar of the shirt, for this I used brown colors and made several folds in the fabric.
Now I began to paint the rest of the costume using a pale lilac for the corset and the sleeves of the shirt, with dark brown I painted the blouse and with light brown the skirt, I painted the hair and the cap that covers the head and so little by little creating clippling masks I began to detail each part of the clothes creating folds and fabric texture.
I gave more life to the face and of course I painted the spots on the face and hands, I illuminated the hair with some light brown highlights and after everything was ok for me, I started to think about the background, I really had several ideas but I liked to think of a background that united two completely opposite tonalities but that in the end would give a different touch, so I made a layer with a gradient using dark blue and orange, then with a desaturated and opaque olive green I painted the ground, with the help of a textured brush I made a texture on the ground giving it more realism, I painted some clouds on both sides using light and dark orange and on the other side light and dark blue, then I painted some rays on both sides, I continued giving some light to the drawing and highlighted some parts where I wanted more illumination, I illuminated the silhouette on the edges with some shades similar to the sky on both sides and so combine a little better the character with the background, I finished the drawing adding some color adjustments and creating a little more darkness that made my drawing blend much better with the background.
