Mythical Boudica by Rhineville Mythical Boudica by Rhineville
Like so many of my illustrations, this one came out of nowhere. It was a quick tonal sketch done in PS a few months back to alleviate my growing sense of incompetence when it came to making pictures. This was done alongside a now failed attempt to create a realistic Goku in the same Vein as my realistic Vegeta. While I might still finish the goku image, I think this is the better illustration.

A mythical Queen Boudica fights a winged, scaly creature.

Love the tones and how you make the light and details here!
I'm learning photoshop to - but more for fashion design - hope one day can do a amazing illustration like this and call it "quick sketch". Hahaha

THIS is how Boudica should be portrayed... so many pictures of her show this flimsy stick-thin teenage girl in a dress. I am convinced that THIS Boudica was the one who slaughtered thousands. :evillaugh: GREAT work with the shadows and the dynamic view. Beautiful! :)

i like how this image is shaded in browns ad bronzes, like she's over shadowed by the creature and fire almost. i like how this image almost makes one believe that the real celt queen couldve been found like this.

No, except for her hand holding the sword, I used an oline 3d reference for it. Thanks :)

Another awesome piece, man. I'm not 100% convinced by the foreshortening of her right arm, but that's only after I spent minutes looking over the picture just so I'd have something helpful to say :D

Good work!

I think I saw this in the WIP/Critique Centre on CA.org. The angle of the face could still use some work, but it's a pretty solid piece.
