This character is inspired by Bjork’s Vespertine album, which is complex combination of sweet wintery chimes, and sensuousness enforced by deep beats and lyrics. I seriously taste snow flakes in my mouth when I listen to Vespertine. I decided the White Mage, coupled with a revealing outfit would provide an adequate visual metaphor for my personal definition of the album’s sound.
The outfit was shamelessly inspired by Bjork’s Swan dress, which she wears on the cover of the album. The color direction I followed for this illustration is allusive to the video Pagan Poetry, one of my favorite songs.
Not too long ago, over at my Facebook Page, I held a raffle for a chance to win a digital portrait. At the time I had only offered one winner, but the amount of participants was so overwhelming that I decided to give away an additional two portraits. This is Nathalia, one of the two additional winners. Hooray!
If you’d like to stay tuned for a raffles and more goodies, add me on Facebook!I promise to give these out regularly! It's cool though, I'll keep you guys posted over here as well.
