Cass is my challenge for the day. I'm working off crappy references and of course these people aren't real so I'm working from game screenshots. I didn't take a shot of her face because she's at a horrid stage right now that I'm just embarrassed to show anyone, even my family. T_T It's that bad. Ugh. Back to it. I'll be at halfway point once I finish Cass. Blackwall, Solas, Cole, and the rest to go.

And the blasted statue. It was supposed to be white but with black background it stole light from Alan's face. Made it a cheap stone statue instead of marble. I'm not good with not painting details, so I'm not a fan of objects. Let's just say this is my least favorite part. Used rocky texture brushes like chalk to get it to look like that. Sorry no full screenshot. Was getting antsy.

Glad I took a break from the Dragon Age big project to do this tribute. Not glad I had a devastating reason. Not necessarily a tutorial but I put down notes on what I sorta do. Most of my stuff comes from the brushes I have and the huge inspiration from Stjepan Sejic who has amazing videos you can watch and try to understand his process. This is far different from doing my traditional pencils...I think I like this much better. That Liquify tool is a godsend! I would've spent hours erasing! Probably should've mentioned the Liquify tool in this. Well I just did. 

1 layer for head skin, 1 layer for hair, 1 layer for hand skin, 1 layer for statue (not shown). Background kept simple (it's a portrait). 21 hours total to finish. Keep in mind I have a kid. Lots of breaks throughout days.

Currently living near Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, I photograph a lot of landscapes, but also enjoy role-playing games, and working out. I've finished one round of P90X, three rounds of P90X-3, and have finished one round of Insanity Max :30. I paint digitally, draw traditionally, and write whole-heartedly. I love fantasy and sci-fi equally, but I also love history, languages, and philosophy. I take pride in knowing how the world works as well as seeing the beauty in it.

I'm striving to look amazing in cosplay although I have no one to create my costumes. You might find me at Emerald City Comic Con if I'm mainland, or Hawaiicon, if I'm home.

Contact me if you wanna nerd out! I love making friends! I'm pretty eclectic so try me out. :D
