Fire Souls by tincek-marincek Fire Souls by tincek-marincek
First of all...HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! :la: :heart: Now let's get to the business...:giggle: This was done for :iconnew-year-exchange: and this year I was :iconalexisneo:'s secret Santa :la: These are her characters Vasper (left) and Strife (right). I liked them a lot, so I decided to paint them both. I tried to draw their expressions when Strife's sister ordered Vasper to kill him... but Vasper didn't want to kill him. So I tried to draw Vasper sad expression.

This is flipped image, because like that composition looked better. Actually I drew it flipped (like that), but characters should be flipped in other way... so, now imagine them in right position ;P And I drew butterflies and circles again... sorry, I can't help myself :giggle: Because I drew it black and white from beginning I had SO much trouble with coloring it. Few days I tried (from morning till night) to color this properly... I have ton of versions for this drawing. But I like this the most, so I posted it here :D

:bulletorange: Adobe Photoshop CS6
:bulletorange: tablet Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch Special Edititon M
:bulletorange: original size is 6298 x 4157 px
:bulletorange: I had 180 layers
:bulletorange: I drew it 17.5 hours (13.5 hours drawing, 4 hours coloring)
and this was done for me (first image). ~Sakuli drew my character Seth. Thanks :heart: +CALENDAR 2014 you can order and see preview in the shop here (you can see previews on the left thumb also). This image you can find inside the calendar.

:bulletorange: This painting is included in Digital Art Masters: Volume 8 book (gallery section) by 3dtotal. There you can find my full tutorial from painting D U A L I T Y.

I hope you like it and comments are welcome :heart: :santa:
