The Morrigan gif

And here is the animated gif of it all together!

The Morrigan 8

Amazing colorist Juri Hayasaka colored this for me. and this is what she turned in.

In this image I tried tweaking the colors to see how the image would feel with a warmer feel. (She is a war deity after all) In the end, we went with the original blues.
I went over the image with a little color dodge in PS to bump up some highlights and add more of a glow to the magical runes. I also put a little more reflected blue onto the figure to bring the piece together. This was then cropped and sent off to be printed!

The Morrigan 7

Here is the final penciled version. In the computer I cleaned up the smudge marks and went over with color dodge to clean up some of the highlighting. I also put an overlay of runes (from a previous pic cause I didn't want to redo them). I kept the layer separate for the colorist so she can do some special effects for the final piece. Next: It's off to the colorist to be colored!

The Morrigan 6

Ok, almost there. I cleaned up the birds here and bumped up some details that can get lost through smudging or whatnot during the process, going in with a darker pencil in some areas to pull some details back out. This is probably the last thing I do on the original paper and then it's off to scanning and digital tweaks.

Part 5. In this stage I worked out the birds in the background and the moon. Almost done!

The Morrigan 4

I suck at updating,(there are so many sites to keep up with) but here is a continuation of the Morrigan process. In this stage, I've smoothed out a bunch of the shadows and fine tuned a lot of the details, especially in the hair and textures in the bracers and skirt. I also finished off the left hand.
