Skieweaver by Steel-Raven Skieweaver by Steel-Raven
Lady Skiewaever
A commission for by bud DJ Sunder for a mutual friend. Took me way too long to finish this project but a combination of chaotic year at my day job along with learning to use a new art tool and program coupled with my usually need for perfection slowed the my progress to a crawl. After many apologies, I finally completed a piece.

A usually give a detailed description of the character but I actually know very little of the character outside of her physical description. I have plenty of time to ask but I was more preoccupied with finishing the piece.

What I do know is that Lady Skieweaver is that she is very thin almost petite, almost in appearance, very fair in appearance to point of being pale which is offset by her red hair and appropriately matching crimson dress. Oh, and more importantly she has eye that are pitch black, which is the most obvious hint that Skieweaver is intact a shape shifting Red Dragon

Think the one thing that consume the most time was the coloring. Because I was so unsure of my skills coloring using Gimp and PS, I went ahead and colored the original pencil and ink with color pencil. Unfortunately, the color pencil did not scan well at all and only added further challenges later on. It wasn't all a bust though, the shading for the dragon turned out beautifully thanks to the pencil work and added great texture to both the dragon and the Skieweaver's dress.

All in all, it was a good learning experience and all parties are happy with the end result. Well, I still believe I could have done a better job and I will attempt to do so another time.

I love the bearing of the lady here.  Her body language and expression are just so self-possessed.

Thanks. While I spent too much time on the background, I wanted to make sure to get the women looking right.

This looks great! It's also a nice chance of pace from your other works such as mechs, zombies and tough guys. The detail of the dragon's scales and plating on its head and neck is excellent!
