Art Blog: Xar Meets Polter

art blog xar meets polter

This is a piece for a story I was writing with Nicole. Two of our dragon characters who we write about loads are Xar and Polter. So we were discussing writing out a story of how they met. From there I started sketching up this little fantasy picture and ultimately it is one of my favorite art blog pieces to date.
Drawing Polter is always fun and challenging, because she’s a ghost and mildly transparent it was different to try and bring that across. We could go into the logistics of whether or not her clothes should be transparent but that would bother me too much trying to decide!
I used a lot of pre-made Photoshop brushes for the background which is somewhat lazy but it turned out better than I had thought it would.
