Aka. The caring doctor Johanssen.
My half of the art trade with
Featuring her OC Doctor Danielle Johanssen and her beloved turian vigilante, Garrus Vakarian.
Here is what she made as her half of the trade : sorceress-nadira.deviantart.co…
It's Garrus and the Citaldel Lade Turian, and I asked Nadira to make a XNA-image of them for my
fic "When we least expect".
Nadira, millions of thank Yous! It's perfect!
Dani is so CUTE as a character, and I really like the fact she hates guns. A very welcomed change to this fandom.
First time I PAINT shirtless turian, meaning I have a few doodles of turian upper body construction, but to PAINT it! Sheesh! It was fun as dope, though.
This was a challenge to make, to be honest. I fell in love whith the "chalk" brush on GIMP 2.8, and ended up doing this thing with it, giving the piece a slight impressionistic vibe. (I like impressionism
Time used: approximately 15+ hours total. Loads of addicting work.
Refs from Nadi's gallery, and Troodon80's ref-sheets.
Personal favourite on this has to be Garrus crest. The strokes on it are just beautiful! The style I'm aiming for!
Unusually large file, because all the delicious details.
Also, noticed how long journey it still is to become even halfway professional with digi-paintings... *sigh*
And extra DO NOT STEAL THIS PIECE OF WORK!
Because all the hard work...
CRITIQUE NEEDED! What to improve and HOW!?
