Stained Glass Comes Alive... by JenZee Stained Glass Comes Alive... by JenZee
Just a quickie I did on my last day of Spring Break ;_;. I don't want to go back to school >_<.

Ah well, anyway... my Orig. Character again (Lilande, half succubus girl person blah). Her eyes arn't normally orange, but I thought red looked ridiculously cliche and cheesy... just wanted to do a lighting study (no reference used, but gosh darndit I wish I could've FOUND ONE. I know there are tons of errors here X_X. I, apparently suck at googling and couldn't find a flashlight-held-under-chin image to save my life ~_~). Kinda creepy pic X_X.

This is about 80% of the original size. Painter 7.0

I've been perusing your works today,and I think this is my fave of all!

I dont think she looks scary at all - on the contrary I think she looks kinda sad, almost serene, in her solitude. :blush: Ooops - hope you take that as a compliment, because I'm not sure what your intention was when you created it! Bottom line I think the lighting is wonderful - it is quite illuminous and striking.

an errie an hauntingly beautiful character. She has sweet eyes, her expression is kinda pure too. Not creepy for me, but more mysterious. The light gives a ghostly effect that calls the attention and gives her an obscure story.
Love it :+favlove:

azhrarn Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2004
I typed a comment, then I got booted. >_< In any case, what I said was: Gorgeous work. :] The lighting is excellent, especially if done off the top of your head. I -love- the windswept hair.
JenZee Featured By Owner May 7, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
Oog, apologies for such a horrendously late reply X_X, thank you for such kind words :) Coming from an artist such as yourself ( I know you get this all the time XD), it's quite the compliment~ Thank you :)

Cool, looks amazing! Great work! :nod: :clap: :D
SirExodus Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2004
interesting; good job on the lighting.
ollismith Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2004   Digital Artist
I LOVE IT!!! Such a great concept, painted with real competence and skill.
You painted the hair really well, the mix of single hairs with the thicker ones which make up the pattern is amazing.
There's a really weird feeling to it, like the central shape should be the window frame but it can't be as Lilande is behind the other half of it/ It's kind of challenging and that makes it interesting.
Good work on the gothic arch shapes too.
:p Looking forward to pestering you to death about everything later in the year D:D
bogus64teen Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2004

I was going to commend you on the difficult facial lighting.. I think it especially brings out the sexy of her lips haha
The hair is impressive, it gives me that impression of a punched mirror
Lancelot5 Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2004

BlueBumbleBee Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2004

spicebunny Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2004  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
looks good though. pretty captivating and interesting pose. reminds me of korean/japanese horrors for some reason :):) nice work.
rogue-rpz Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2004
excellent work the only thing that springs to mind is the brightness of her chest i would imagine being female there might be more shadows in this region :)
Vivi-Sparrow Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2004

So beautiful!!!

i'm glad that you went with the orange...the red would have looked too out of place. the orange helps give a contrast with the other colors throughout the composition.
