Idun and Death by caanantheartboy Idun and Death by caanantheartboy
The Line is Drawn theme this week was mythology and comic characters, so this is Death and Idun, the goddess of Apples and Eternal Youth.

It's completely digital. Was trying to go for a classic painting look. Took about 2 hours, including hair-pulling time.

Loved Gaiman's Death. Her plus the goddess of youth? Seems like a perfect pairing.

DC should turn it in to an Odd Couple type sitcom. ;)

Yeah, I'd say you hit the painted look pretty spot on. Hard to believe 2 hours though, maybe I'm just the slowest digital painter ever, but I find that really impressive.

I think it was a just a case of deadline fever. Most of what I put down worked first go, which is RARE. The background was probably only ten minutes in itself. Idun's face gave me the most hassle, and I think it shows as it's far smoother than the rest of it.

Also, I stopped working with excessive layers a while ago, but for this one, I worked on about six layers, which probably made it easier to cover up any background mess. And I only used one brush (with size variation) so there was generally less mucking about on this piece than usual.

Faces are like that. I think we gravitate to the characters face naturally,and are generally less forgiving on mistakes there.

I usually only work on 2, maybe 3 layers, and seldom deviate from one brush... and I take forever. Maybe I'll give digital another shot this week.
