Nice to see some black characters around.  The colours and textures are divine.  What is the book about?

Sorry, just realized you're a digital artist. Still would like to hear about your process, is there something already posted somewhere I can read? Thanks, brilliant work by the way!
nonbankfiddle Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2015   Photographer
Is there any way you could talk a little about your process on this? I'm curious about the embroidery on her cloak in particular. I'm working on a painting for a co worker, using this as inspiration. I'm still not quite sure how to get perfect circles with a brush either, do you make like a custom compass or something?

Man. Your use of colors and placement of everything in this is just perfect.

This is so gorgeous. I have to say, I got the prints from the Kickstarter and I'm a little disappointed that they didn't preserve the contrast nearly so well as it shows up on the screen. They still look good, just not as amazing as the digital versions.
juliedillon Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2014
Yeah, I noticed that the colors on this one in particular lost a little bit of contrast in the 11x14 prints, but I think they're still okay. The giclees turned out really great, and the version in the book, as well; I'll just have to try to do a better job calibrating to each individual printer (since all were printed through different services) next time. The place I got the 6x8 and 11x14 prints was my first time working with this particular printer.
SpaceTurtleStudios Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2014  Professional General Artist
I totally understand; I do a lot of digital prints myself and it's always a toss-up to see if they'll print correctly. I only got the prints, so I don't have any comparison to the giclees or the book.

Are you planning to offer prints of these images in the future? I would maybe consider re-ordering one or two of them (like this one) that lost a bit of contrast in printing if it meant I got an image a little closer to the digital version. And there are some of your other pieces I'd like to maybe get prints of as well. :)

Your talent with colours is flippin amazing! I love this take on, well I guess the Sun Shepherdess, but she reminds me of Eos (greek goddess of the dawn, sorry greek mythology is my default).

Absolutely breathtaking.

I find my words fail me when trying to find the right ones to praise this piece, I shall have to simply give a pale bravo
Bunnywith Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014
This is absolutely beyond words. It's so beautiful! I love the contrast of her robes with the sky, the patterns on her robe and the design in the sun, and the night sky beyond her, like she's the night itself and tucks the sun away inside her arms while she sleeps with the rest of the world. I love this so much. Absolutely gorgeous and stunning!

Wonderful colors, value, texture and ideas!
I really like the tones on the skin you used, the colorpalette in general is very warm and harmonic, despite the use of a lot of cold colors, too!

Like others, I love how you did the fabric with beautiful, colorful patterns. Not that others are not as beautiful, they are! Lovely colors and lovely radiation. Love it!
SpaceTurtleStudios Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2014  Professional General Artist
This is so, so gorgeous.

A few questions: will you be selling prints of these after the Kickstarter? I would LOVE to buy all the prints, but I am low on cash right now and don't know if I can afford to contribute, even though the Kickstarter deal is fantastic.

Also, what program do you use to paint? Photoshop? Painter? Something else?

This figure, and any that could accompany its world, should have it's own mythos. This is so evocative and fantastic, you've really created something gorgeous and the sense of power and wonder you set up is stellar.
