Lyssa by depingo Lyssa by depingo
EDIT: Thanks so much for the DD! The contest is over now btw and I was one of the winners, yay! (More info here [link] )
Thank you for all the favs& comments :heart:



I finished this a couple of days ago for the Art Evolution Challenge over at ArtOrder.
Participants were asked to paint Lyssa, "A young female human wizard with black hair who always wears white trimmed in gold."

My idea for Lyssa is a somewhat Tibetan-inspired shaman. She mainly uses her powers to protect nature and wildlife and summons animal spirits to aid her. :B

The entries are going to be judged sometime soon, so wish me luck <3
You can see the complete lineup here: [link]

Beautiful costume design contrast to her environment. I like that you captured her in mid saunter xD the flowing robes really add to her dignity ... Will never get over walking shots

This is gorgeous - I love the warm tones and lighting against the subtly different blues of the snow and the spirit. Lovely character design too. Well done! =D
