This is The Reading Princess, my latest work. I painted this starting with color and not greyscale as usual. If you have any questions or comments please let me know!
It seems I’ve been painting a lot of characters, lately. When I paint this kind of hybrid female characters I love to mix different features such as horns, scales, claws and feathers with human traits, combining sheer, natural power with the delicate beauty of female bodies.
This time I made a Tiefling, or a half-demon if you’re not into roleplaying games, a being born from the unholy union of a demon and a human. They are not necessary evil in nature, but their demonic traits usually get them to be fiercely discriminated. As a result they don’t trust anybody and learn very quickly to rely exclusively on themselves.
As usual I tried to stay as painterly as possible, to achieve a more organic result.
Let me know what do you think! And if you have a favourite character you would like me to paint you can suggest it in the comments below!
