Dw5 : Goddess Apocalypse Speedpainting

Thanks for your feedbacks and comments about my littles silhouettes posted last week , I selected the 2 most famous ( from comments) of them : The mermaid ( #1 ) and the pregnant one ( #7 ). I started to work on both, but I immediatly get more attracted on all the new anatomical problem of the #7 , and started a speedpainting around to play with concept art, and find something I think good enough for the contest. Goddess ' Apocalypse ' I painted a goddess pregnant of a new planet with a veil and a weapon. Within the other Dominance War gods, she's the one of the end of the world ... and born. That's why I choosed her name to be Apocalypse ( mean from Greek "lifting of the veil" or "revelation"). From the technical side of the artwork, I used only Gimp-painter. Doing veils and playing with transparency is a good exercice, as well as to find the good balance of color to show the planet inside her. Next step : Background, detailing and model sheet.

J'ai l'impression que la pliure du coude est un peu basse mais je me trompe peut-être.

Le travail sur les transparences est énorme.

Vivement l'étape suivante!

@André VAZ : Thanks for the visit and for the comment :)

@Godzillu : Merci, bien noté pour le coude, à corriger donc pour ma mise au propre.

@ Deburger : Thanks for the 2 comments ; I must add a texture to this veil on face to be sure it's obvious it's not a shadows. Thank for this indication.

@ Arco : Oh yep ; I forgot to erase this old accessories when I tryed to do a goddess of nature in my painting process. She look like a christmass tree with it; I must find a something better. :)

Looking really good. Must say this is really the right choice. quite interesting and original concept.

Model Sheet o_O, OMG, will you be releasing that under CC? XD I'd really love to try and model her in 3D once it's done.

So did you really use GIMP-Painter? Not Krita? GIMP-Painter has been discontinued, but of course, you could still be using it. Just wondered why not Krita?

Hey Glenn. The artwork is from 2011, Krita at this time was still too crashy and slow to paint full time on it. I was already in touch with the Krita team, but the dev finished to adapt Krita for my minimal spec around 2012. Between 2009 and that time I used Gimp-painter and Mypaint a lot, this artwork is part of that period.
