Ravenna WIP

I think I have her pretty well down.  Just have to add the raven tattoos and figure out what is going on all about her.

Ravenna WIP

Back to this one.  Did some work on the body today. More shading, etc.  Have got an idea for the pool of water and robe, plus how this will all flow with the raven tattoos.  Will start working on her face next.

Ravenna WIP

Day 2, so I started to work on the face since the body alone just looked creepy.  It is coming along and still has a few more layers to go.  This will be painted over usually 5 times before the depth, values, etc start to work well.

Ravenna WIP

Sketch of my newest painting.  It will be large 30" x 48"  The working title will be Ravenna,  Ravenna's name comes from the name Raven, meaning "death" or "doom".  She will have a tattoo of ravens flying up her side and back.  An actual raven will flying in the upper right corner.

Finished Untitled Painting

Work In Progress

You can sort of see where this is going.....

Work in Progress

Slowly coming around to my vision of this painting.  Plan on having the hair come down over her shoulders more, and behind the globe.  Coming up from her wrists will be vines with flowers, which will entwine between her fingers.....

Work In Progress

Ideas are starting to come together. Sort of an earth like orb, with her hair to come down around it and thinking flowers, plants coming up from the bottom.  At least her hands are not so sausage like...
