COMMISSION - Crystal Tree by telophase COMMISSION - Crystal Tree by telophase
Two Livejournal friends of mine are collaborating on a novel, and one of them commissioned this painting of a scene from it as a present for the other.

I made my boyfriend pose for both of the characters, with a kitchen knife for Ross, and with an over-the-shoulder vacuum cleaner for Mia and her flamethrower. I am a very good girlfriend because I am not posting the pictures of him doing so. (No, he was not dressed as either of them, before you ask.)

Anyway. Done in Photoshop and Painter - PS for the sketch and coloring, Painter for the B&W rendering. I colored it by layering colors over the B&W in PS and using various layer blending modes to simulate colored glazes.

Characters and story copyright 2010 Rachel Manija Brown and Sherwood Smith.

oh, GLORIOUS! i especially love the use of multiple light sources (her FLAMETHROWER as one is an especially awesome touch) and the details on the clothing, oh man. :D

Thanks! I knew I wanted two light sources, one from each side, so that it would appear a bit more ominous, but it wasn't until I'd gotten the B&W painting done on the figures that I metaphorically slapped my forehead and went "OF COURSE the flamethrower will be a light source! DUH!" So I had to redo the light on Mia. XD
