The Witcher - contest entery by Exarrdian The Witcher - contest entery by Exarrdian
Uhm.. .. hmm so why am I entering a contest again? First I never drawn in that style, second chances I`ll win are.. well very slim and lastly.. me and photoshop don`t get along when painting on 2000x2000 pixels needs heavy background.
But.. what the hell here`s a try!

I looked at the art of that game and read some information in the wiki.. then suddenly got this idea of a witch that lives in some dark forest in some lake and she lures men to come to her then she drowns them and steals their souls... and then she summons the spirits of her fallen victims from the water do dance for her like puppets and entertain her :D!

... yeah now why I got such long complicated idea by looking at the game`s art is beyond me oh well..
I don`t want to look at the other entries XD I`ll get discouraged..

Photoshop CS2
Over 7 hours =_=;
Meh.. so so.. I`m proud of the pic but I`m sure I could have made it look better =_=;
*rests hands*

Especially the way you made the water and the glowies on them skulls,

Cheap!? Ha, it looks great that's the point! And that's the only point too!
I hate people that say pictures are cheap or fake or whatever because they're computer made, what kind of bullshit nonsense is that!?

Wise words.. :salute:
There are more professional people around who use specific techniques in drawing and I`m just.. mashing things together till it looks good :rofl:
I use the dodge and burn tool a lot which isn`t very professional..but I just love sparkles.. in water or in magic and such >>;
And at the end its not like I draw to be pro artist..I just draw because I like to :nod:
Hey! When is the next Anger Crusade? :rage: I got about 9 commissions and they take a lot of my time!!Arghhh.. ! And I want to make sure I get time to draw something for the crusade as well!! :pissedoff:
Gotta be prepared!

Hey, it's possible. In the game it is said that people who die in the water come back as monsters.

Considering it's the Witcher she'd probably be naked though :paranoid:

Yeah thought about that but don`t want to go above my "no R rated art" rule ^^;
So I put some leaves on her :XD:
And oh? Hmm well these come back as gooey skulls XD;; now it looks like as if someone threw chemical X in the lake but oh well.. :laughing:

DAMN YOU AND YOUR WITCHCRAFT WHICH LOOKS SO GOOD BUT YOU ALWAYS FIND REASON TO DOUBT IT :rage:

No really even beyond the technical art stuff...(which also looks good >> As Jenx said, the face looks really nice!)

Theres so many ideas and stories and all just so well shown in this one picture.. ^^!
Like since I'm studying witch stuff in Russian Myths class I can identify so much that can be associated with witches..XD Like pretty much the whole darn pic has such details!

You made an environment of witchcraft ++ bwhahaha

Swamp, the trees, night, Long hair, black hair, nails, heck even the skulls XD

The flyign skull reminds me of one from a Baba Yaga tale XD
The skulls look so awesome.. +_+ Really looks like draining the remaining life/soul out of them ..++ bwahhahahah so only the element of death remains 8D!!!!

Very darn spooky I love it, hun XD And in October too! Halloween spirit! >>!
