Still Alive... by Ramah-Palmer Still Alive... by Ramah-Palmer
A celtic warrior contemplates her continued existence as the lowering sun breaks briefly through the clouds of battle...

Done in Photoshop CS using a Wacom Bamboo tablet.

I used an awesome stock reference photo from :iconchonastock: for the head: [link]
So thanks a lot for that.

I wanted to get more of a sense of it being a fantasy image so for reference for the body I used a photo of Kiera Knightley from King Arthur that I found on the net.

The textured paper background is from :iconcoyotemax: and I would advise everyone to go take a look at them.

Here is a link to the WIP version for anyone interested: [link]

Hey, thanks for the interest, especially in the painting and not the cartography.

I'm not currently accepting commissions due to a backlog but if you need anything in the future then feel free to contact me.

This is really beautiful! It looks a lot like Kierra Knightly in King Arthur- except for the hair color.

It's pretty decent. Pictish warrior woman vs. Phoenician undead in the city of Tyre.
