I was inspired to create this image by pompafunebris on deviantart. She is a truly amazing artist! At the end of this process, I realized how much this image reminds me of the Sword of Thandium novella I am writing – it definitely has the feel for the fantasy world I am creating, and the image of the young lady makes me think of the White Dragon of Ethandea (the magical country of Erenon). I know, tons of names you know nothing about. If you want to learn more about the book and the world, check out Sword of Thandium.
This was definitely a challenge for me – I tried to start it with a different model, but the lighting and the pose did not fit the surroundings. I think that the model I chose works well 🙂
