Royal Assassin by sakimichan Royal Assassin by sakimichan
Update: resubmitted from last night, adjusted the image a bit.

portrait for a character I'm developing for my portfolio.
Her story goes something like this XD: She's a elf orphan that was taken in by the humans soldiers when she was still a child. Since she was a very agile and had potential of being more than a slave, they decided to train her to become an assassin.
In the portrait she's around 25.

I'll be working on a full-body concept later on : )

used: photoshop CS 4

Love the picture and basically everything about it including the dragon. Though not as a assassin. Personally in the fantasy world I've been crafting she'd be perfect as a dragon's servant or bonded. Basically a dragon's family when away from other dragons. Normally a bond formed out of mutual respect and not so much taking people as slaves. As for why I've said all this I don't really know aside from this picture being quite good for my inner muse. Keep up the amazing work.

Beautiful earthy colours. It feels steampunk, yet lit with a cold light. I adore the icy tone of grey of the jewels, they're magnificent so poignant. The characters eyes seem very hard but they're granted great depth by the colder light, and such warm tones.

Wow this is such an amazing portrait! I especially love the use of rosy colours and background blurring to bring out her "glowing" skin :D.

One thing is bothering me though: the two light blue pieces of jewellery on the right side of the page do not cast shadows on the right side D:!
The light source appears to be from the left, while the shadow of the two pieces is on their left side; just something I've noticed.

I think the outfit was inspired off this character (which it shouldn't be) but not traced.
