Maralen of the Mornsong by Gido Maralen of the Mornsong by Gido
Maralen of the Mornsong

I wanted a darker look to Maralen... hence the fire and heavy shadows...

and again with the skeletal trees... yes, you will be seeing a lot of those...

Vendillion Clique buzzing around her there! And yeah, if they seem like they're trying to peel off her dress... it's because they ARE trying to peel off her dress...

enjoy!!


as per my usual habit... alternate card art here ----> [link]

reference can be found here ---> [link]

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE:
Regarding how i did this... I honestly can't remember...
all i know is that it took me two days to render this (thanks in no small part to Charon's Claw!!!)... i remember picking up the tablet and going to work... everything else is a mix of headaches and tears...

I am trying hard to move away from the whole "lineart first process" that i'm currently used to, because I do want to get used to drawing directly into the computer...
