Eragon's Shade



Before the movie comes, out I just wanted to render what the Shade looked like in my head before I am tainted by the casting. After trying to come up with a creepy outfit, I realized that I was just mimicing an older drawing. But this is how I imagined the shade for all it is worth or not worth.

Thanks for the comments.

This was a late night thing last friday. It was done all on the computer. I usually like to work from a sketch. It took about an hour and a half I am guessing. maybe more maybe less. I did it with a technique that Ryan Wood taught me, where you colorize a black and white sketch and then overlay colored multiply layers. He takes it several steps further but I was looking for a looser piece this time.

Now I want to read the book, darn Hollywood for ruining what we imagine in our heads by making movies so quickly out of everything.

This is really beautifully done, your process sounds interesting.
