Khalaf-WIP 1 by Xel-Lotath
Khalaf-WIP 1
Meet Khalaf, also known as 'Hellboy' because of his horns (or what remains of them). Twin brother of Asa, my character.
And both of them seem to have a blowing-up-things fetish, though he prefers bare hands and his sister prefers chemicals.
Still working on horns' stubs, cape, ear and hair, but it's my first time with this technique and I think it's going pretty well.
The Shadow?! The Shadow? The Shadow! by Xel-Lotath
The Shadow?! The Shadow? The Shadow!
The Very Respectable Pathfinder Campaign strikes back, with the shadow (the shadow? The shadow! Hell, into the loop again) of a common enemy menacing our 'heroes'.
From left to right: Ofelia the rogue-with-a-bit-of-a-swashbuckler, Asa the alchemist (me) and Tod the wizard.
PS: f*****g horns. But is Asa's left eye that wins the painintheass-a-thlon. .-.
Half-Orc by Xel-Lotath
...and his faithful, cultured owl.
Now, coloring (started as an acrylics project, but I think it fits better with digital. I already have a good substitute).
A Canary at 14,000 ft. by Xel-Lotath
A Canary at 14,000 ft.
This is the illustration I submitted for Lucca Comics&Games' 2014 contest: this year's theme was 'revolutionary portraits'.
I chose to portray -shamelessly supporting my lifetime-long fascination with flying machines- the 1922 flight of Amelia Earhart and her first Airster Kinner, also known as 'the Canary'. She set a female record of altitude with this, in a country that extended the legal right to vote to women only two years before.
Unfortunately I haven't made it to the final exposition (I wonder why... :D ), but considering that I was starting from this idea of 'wet-on-wet watercolour' and that I absolutely broke my Preliminary Drawing Universal Rule© (I actually drew the Canary and nothing more) I still think I can be satisfied.
Keep going forward (cit.).

'Ok, this lineart is good, but you can still make it better by moving this element on the left. WITHOUT STARTING IT AGAIN, because I know you're crazy and you'd be able to do so.'

Io, da rompina credente e praticante, non sono proprio del medesimo avviso (specialmente considerando che qui dentro c'è roba che risale a più di cinque anni fa), comunque apprezzo molto: grazie. :D
