Blood Magick by Chris Christian

Blood Magick
by Chris Christian

Prompt: blood mage
prompted by: Nicole Cadet, during Sketch Fest #15 (June, 2011)

This is a finished version of a sketch!

Digital, Photoshop & Wacom tablet. I'm a bad boy. I ran over about 20 minutes when I finished it this morning. Definitely enjoyed it though. I'll have to get a little practice time in before the next Sketch Fest.


mikka says: Finished versions can take as long as you want. :) I do not want to run into her ... pretty much anywhere, actually, but I really like the organic swirls at the borders of her "dress" and gloves. ~ Reply?

     Chris Christian replied to this: Thanks, Michelle :) I think those swirls were when I decided I wanted the dress to be forming out of the blood.

Ellen Million says: Oh, this turned out AMAZING. Nice work, and I love the green against the rich red! ~ Reply?

     Chris Christian replied to this: Thanks, Ellen! The green caught me as well... I was messing about with red and orange before... but the contrast of the green blew that away for me :)

Alisha Christian says: She is frighteningly gorgeous. I love this one so much. Love the use of the blood as power and clothing and everything. Wonderful interpretation! ~ Reply?

     Chris Christian replied to this: Thanks, baby :) And thank you for convincing me to participae this month!

Nicole Cadet says: I really liked how she came out. The rendering of the dress makes it look like a mix between blood and latex. Very cool ~ Reply?

     Chris Christian replied to this: Blood & Latex... hard to go wrong there! *grins* Thanks for the compliment!

Noreen says: I'm always so very impressed to see such gifted digital work! The blood effect worked great, and her face is fierce! Looking forward to seeing more of your stuff next sketchfest! ~ Reply?

     Chris Christian replied to this: Thanks, Noreen! I learned a lot from this piece... I'm looking forward to next time myself :)
