Darklaw | Emissary in Exile Cover Detail
Detail of the fifth cover image for a series of Darklaw Stories.
Digital painting’s greatest feature is layers. For me, the primary use is to make painting parts with different colors and lighting easier. That is, a composition with overlapping parts — here we have hands over clothing and Avestine's arm over Elowyn’s face — can be completed easier and quicker without as many mistakes.
By putting the arm on a layer, I can work across the leather corset and Elowyn’s chin without the problem of pulling arm colors or blurring edges.
