Dance of the Flames by lizjowen Dance of the Flames by lizjowen
/Edit/ Changed her hair and increased the shadows. Got a brad new and spanking signature too ;D /Edit/

This has to be one of my most experimentive pieces ever.

I realised that I never really stepped out of my comfort zone when it came to the body, so I decided to choose a dynamic kind of position so that I could learn more about anatomy. I referenced such pose from the lovely Jlior on dA, as her elegance inspired me.
I also experimented with different shading and colouring techniques, as I used various once for different elements; for example, for the skin I used a very minimalist amount of blur, relying on a low opacity hard brush to blend all of the colours instead. I really liked this technique and hope to use it again!

Originally I was going to go for a different theme as I was listening to OBSESSION - SHINee, and their music really gave me the feeling of sadness, passion, and I kept having images of fire and explosions, and sometimes a bit of rain. Maybe next time I’ll add a bit of rain to this piece once I know how to paint rain.

So tada! I hope to do more of these dance poses… Perhaps I could create a series?
