I love the PF game (I was hosting this Adventure Path) and I'm hoping to do some work for Paizo in the future. I say all of that so that I might say that this Illustration hits me in ALL the right places! As a gamer AND as an artist. It is excellent. Very fine work that expresses the character wonderfully! You've used such economy in your brush strokes...masterful. I'll be studying this for a while.

It reminds me of the expression that 'An artist never finishes a work...he abandons it' I can imagine that you would have loved to keep going...but then would further detail upset the balance and ruin the beauty of the pure strokes of colour that captures the fall and rhythm that is her hair?

Simply excellent!

Wow thank you for the very kind comment! Yes, usually I just HAVE to give up working on an illustration, deadline is always around the corner, but this is also a cool "device" that helps you focus and prioritize on important things.

Credit where credit is due. In future, I may ask a few details about doing commisioned work for Paizo if that is O.K. with you. (Once I have works ready for submission. I have one WIP at the moment) Please tell me if you are unwilling to do so? Thanks.

Sure no problem. Actually the process is quite simple: once you have a portfolio you have to submit it to Paizo's Senior AD Sarah Robinson (either by mail or in person during some convention) and if she likes your works she will contact you in a few weeks. Here you can find some advice for what your portfolio should have written by Sarah herself [link]

Mi inquino, grazie! E' una delle poche che piacciono anche a me a distanza di qualche mese, anche se i capelli mi infastidiscono un po' :P Devo dire che è venuta bene anche in stampa, la cosa mi solleva perché ho sempre paura che vengano dei pastoni.

Con questi capolavori che fai mi chiedo veramente come facciano a uscire dei pastoni in stampa :P Cmq questo è un personaggio che mi affascina molto per questo mi piace molto. Ma anche tutte le altre illustrazioni che stai facendo sono splendide. Ti invidio molto, hai veramente talento. Complimenti ancora :D

Ti ringrazio molto per i complimenti, la strada che ho da fare è ancora tantissima però, purtroppo continuo ad avere lacune su alcuni fondamenti (tipo anatomia, composizione, illuminazione...) e ogni lavoro che faccio è un parto :S

Ti capisco, però fai bene a continuare. Hai talento e i tuoi lavori non potranno far altro che migliorare. Purtroppo i fondamenti di anatomia, composizione, illuminazione e (per me) anche gestione dei colori sono importantissimi. Questo è uno dei motivi per cui non riesco più a lavorare sulle illustrazioni. Mi mancano tutte queste cose. Ho cmq sempre preferito di più colorare lavori già fatti che farne di mie, non sono molto brava nel disegno.

Eh io sto cercando di recuperare mentre lavoro (ovvero sputando sangue per ogni singola tavola), purtroppo non ho assolutamente tempo di esercitarmi su cose specifiche, infatti le lacune mi rimangono sui soggetti meno frequenti (scene) e si è creato un circolo vizioso per cui, non essendo ferrato sulle scene, non mi venivano assegnate (considera che in meno di 2 anni che lavoro con Paizo mi hanno dato circa 140 tavole, di cui credo 120 personaggi, 15 ritratti e solo 4 scene), quindi non avevo modo di impararare a "scrocco" e come vedi la proporzione è assolutamente impari. Adesso fortunatamente mi pare di vedere la luce in fondo al tunnel perché mi sono state affidate una ventina di scene e quindi mi dovrò spremere al massimo, avrò modo di fare un po' di pratica anche su quello e magari alla fine di questo percorso mi sentirò un po' meno monco...

Capisco il tuo discorso e non mi resta che augurarti un in bocca al lupo per le tue nuove tavole, sono molto curiosa di vederle ;)

Thank you! These are actually a bit old (I think I made them in March or April), I had a bit more time and they are more refinished than the works I'm doing right now
