Drow Queen Of The Hill by SirTiefling Drow Queen Of The Hill by SirTiefling
Emeralda's next project is to overthrow her dear friend the Drow Queen and become a new one! (Emeralda obviously isn't a drow, but that doesn't stop her.) The Queen's defensive strategy is to "whip it good." Won't work. Poor Drow Queen. :(

Wanted to paint something more challenging. Too many "character poses" pictures lately...

Tools: Mouse, Paint Shop Pro 7

I really like the the colors, poses, and composition! 

My only quibble/critique is that I keep getting distracted by Esmerelda's butt. It looks nice and all, but she highlighting kind of lends itself to distracting from the rest of the piece, especially since there's no light from that direction and it is a sudden highlight

Yeah, that's a good point. Ahem... well, she has +5 magical tights. Wild magic! :D

It's good to see a Drow Queen who looks like she serves an Evil deity by expression alone; her apparent ecstasy while aiming to flay an opponent with that less-than-merciful-looking item says more than the fetish-wear and Underdark cave setting.

Isn't the whole of Drow politics one huge game of Queen of the Hill?

Nice action poses, and effective atmosphere for this kind of showdown. Nicely done.

Bah, I was checking your journal for a FAQ, but I got lazy. Don't shoot me if you get this a lot: Do you do everything from start to finish with a mouse? Or do you do pencil sketches and scan em in?
Reply
:iconsirtiefling:
SirTiefling Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014
It's 100% mouse and begins with empty digicanvas. I do traditional sketches though (occasionally anyway) and have tried that "color the scanned sketch" method in the past.

Nice! And you managed to work a shiny butt cheek and boob into the wonderful mix!:)

I hope Emeralda wins! But somehow I think the Drow queen might prevail.

(Orange light between Emeralda's arm and body under the Drow's foot doesn't quite seem to fit the rest of the image.
Shouldn't it be an evil blue?:))

SirTiefling Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014
Yeah, it's better to do two characters - one with butt, another with boob - instead of doing that infamous boobs & butt pose with just one character. :D

The light comes from Emeralda's flaming dagger. It doesn't really fit in there too well - the fact really irks me - but the flaming dagger is her "canon" weapon.

I kinda like the infamous boobs & butt pose.:) I use it a lot.

Ok, I can see it now. Yeah it's just an unfortunate place for the dagger.

Maybe more light on the floor in front of her? Still a nice image.
