Another one of the three illustrations for digital painting class.
We had to paint a "vampire hit by a ray of light". Light and composition were most important.
I really struggled with this one. My first attempt was completely different and boring, I didn't like it at all, so I went back to thumbnails. I went for the simplest idea and colours I usually don't use and had really much fun painting this.
I used some references for the umbrella (I tend to forget that umbrellas are "not-round" for a lack of a better word) and this one [link]
as reference for the background (although I changed the perspective a bit).
11 hours over two or three days.
