Novah by IndyScribbable Novah by IndyScribbable
A desolate world holds promise of an artifact long forgotten, but the spoils are worth the risk. One lone woman takes the plunge into a mysterious web of legend and myth, flung across the far reaches of the galaxy.

This was actually just a simple portrait practice with Copic markers that turned into entirely something else, lol! I decided I wanted more than just a random face on a page.

Done with Copic markers, .5 mech pencil, and a white-out pen, with post-production in P-shop for some tweaking and color correction.

The way you shaded the hair and the black outfit looks pretty cool. There's a good amount of detail you put into them.

As one who very recently acquired a Copic marker set, I hope to color and shade that well someday.

A cross between gene starwind and lara croft.  I dig it!

The artwork itself if amazing.  Traditional artists always impress me but this is something special.

How beautiful! The colors are absolutely spectacular and I think the background just adds to the beauty of Novah:love:
Seriously, she looks lovely. I adore the way you've done her skin and how well it suits her natural-looking reddish hair. Her eyes, however, are certainly the focus! The color is gorgeous and you've done a great job at giving even the eye white a very realistic look:la:

I adore how Novah's clothes shine. The perfect look for a sci-fi suit! The design of that collar is very much to my liking, too:nod:

You've done the background very cleverly, since the black sky doesn't overlap with Nova's black clothes at all. the light, rocky area creates balance, and the white, pretty stars just add to the balance even more. Also, that hint of blue in the horizon ties the colors of the entire picture together very well:heart:

May I ask how big this piece is in real life?

Oh my gosh, your comment totally made my day! Thank you! I really appreciate the kind words and the time it took to notice all that! :D This piece is 9 x 12 Bristol Board in real life.
