Second Woody's comment. Her stance indicates both surprise and resolve. I hope she is left handed

Thank you, everyone, for your kind replies.

OMG you noticed that! I wondered if anyone would.

I couldn't find a decent reference pose, and cannot afford to hire a model, and so used my Halloween costume to pose for the reference picture. But it was oriented the other way, and as I began drawing I realized I didn't like it. For some reason it just felt like it didn't read as well. So, rather than go through all the trouble of the costume and setup again, I just horizontally mirrored the picture via graphics program. So she ended up left handed.

In such pictures, I have some kind of weird issue with the protagonist being on the left. I do not know why. It just feels wrong to me.

Talking Re: Marsh Wight (acrylic)

You could just do what Attalus did: lure innocent young girls into your studio with promises of pot roast and potatoes. It worked really well.
Seriously, that is a great pic. Could the left-handed thing be about the eye entering the pic from the left and taking in the cold wight? And then Milady Southpaw?

Yeh, you follow the Wight's gaze to the fighter. If it were mirrored, I dunno

Re: Marsh Wight (acrylic)

I think it's great. There's so much action and drama.

I like the left right orientation too.

Re: Marsh Wight (acrylic)

Rebecca, Welcome to our little corner of Wet Canvas!
Fantastic artwork!
I love the action and drama, it looks like a paperback book cover, that is a big complement, it makes me want to know more of the story and read the book.
I hope to see more of your artworks.

Re: Marsh Wight (acrylic)

Might be a classic style ( I see Kelly, Frazetta,etc) But Still Excellent.

Sweet, love how you can actually feel them looking directly at each other. Great capture of the emotions of the moment.

Re: Marsh Wight (acrylic)

Hello,

Nice painting! I really like what you did with the forest and the monster, but ... where are his genitals ? ˆˆ

Only one thing I don't like, the girl's hairs looks non natural compared to others elements.

Any kind of Wight is a magical creature. They do not reproduce sexually, so...no need for genitals!

Re: Marsh Wight (acrylic)

I still like it, with or without gonads, but what I wanna know is where the front of her bra disappeared to? I mean, bra straps are uncomfortable enough if you don't get that "lift and seperate" thing.
