Here is the progress on this banner image. I took an opaque layer and started refining things, using a pastel brush in photoshop and a regular pressure sensitive brush to carve out details. I haven't focused too much on the figure, and I plan to clean her up a lot tomorrow. Her anatomy is sad, so she might be completely redrawn. That's ok! Try, try again.
I used some references for this piece from a video game (not sure which one). So much beautiful artwork in that indistry. Damn.
