Postapocalyptic Fantasy by MartaNael Postapocalyptic Fantasy by MartaNael
Another realistic try done for Ediciones Babylon. :)

I wanted to portray a beautiful and attractive girl, but also tough and evil :P The dragon is some kind of alter ego and also her partner. I'm not sure about the whole story with the eggs and the futuristic feeling of the background, you can make it up :P I just wanted to show a postapocalyptic future full of fantasy creatures :)

It was reaaaaaaaaally time-consuming since it's a huge canvas (6000x9000px at 300dpi, which means her head is real size when zooming in until 100%) so it took about 55hours (6 days of work) including the time of thinking about what to do and taking pictures of myself as reference for the pose and light. I also used as reference a picture I took of a friend of mine some time ago. Also lots of pics as inspiration for the face.. from Megan Fox, Adriana Lima to Taylor Swift and me.

Everything painted from scratch in Photoshop except for the T-shirt illustration. :la:

I like this on. The dragon makes the scene complete, I thing. It fits to the woman, and the red eyes of this dragon looks really good. Well done.

Me encanta! Ademas el detalle de "la cabeza es a tamaño real" es de lo mejor. Sobre las referencias, el dibujo de Ari, cuando lo vi en el Expomanga 2012 estuve por decirte que se parecia a Megan Fox, pero esta se parece mas a Taylor Swift, buena eleccion de refs.

That's a fantastic work, I'm completely in love with it ! And she's really sexy.

The lower part of her body looks a bit strange though, there's a kind of contradiction between the position of the legs and that of the rest of the body. The abdomen seems to be oriented to the right while the left leg's oriented towards the left. Something wrong with the zip too.
But the upper part looks just perfect.
