Splinterlands art contest | Regal peryton
Greetings community I hope you are very well, today I wanted to humanize this card from @Splinterlands that I liked very much, I found it quite beautiful and the cold tones completely made me fall in love, I wanted to represent it in the form of a woman, using colors similar to the original and keeping some details like the eyes, ears, wings and horns, definitely the most difficult part for me was painting all this dress and the wings, which, although I love the colors, I had a hard time making them look good being this an art that I wanted to be semi realistic, I wanted to add a quite magical background to this scene so I chose Northern Lights, then I will show you the process of this fan art full of fantasy.
I made the sketch which at first would be from another card, but finally I decided to choose Regal, adapting her wings to this character and creating a beautiful long dress that would fall to the ground, for her skin I chose medium tones, using dark and light pinks, for the hair I used a dark blue base, to then apply sparkles with light blue, after painting all her skin and hair, I took care of painting her clothes, using a strong lilac that I would change a little later.
I painted the dress about 6 times until I decided to change the width of the dress, it was too narrow and then I started to paint again, applying colors that match the color palette of this card, applying shadows and lights in the folds of the dress to give it form.
I filled the wings with a purple base, and little by little I was filling using the colors of Regal's wings, really here it was a mess again that I had to do again a few times, I add the horns and a background of one color solid.
Taking care of the background a bit, I chose some northern lights, I really liked this because it gave an even more magical touch to everything, I painted a little grass, however, I saw that my drawing did not look consistent with the dark background, so I decided create a new layer with the effect of multiplying and painting over the entire character with a dark color, thus giving a little more shadow on it and everything looked much better, this also allowed me to highlight the lights in a new layer.
With some layer and brush adjustments, I made the lights of my drawing, highlighting some parts where the light that comes out of her hand hits.
I hope you liked my participation this week, many successes to all!
