Over the last few years, commission after commission I've slowly got to a stage where I just can't continue any more. I need to finish school too and it began to feel impossible. I want to use the time to improve. In the little spare time, I wan to paint something for myself and improve my life generally, while I still can. Therefore I'm putting any freelance activity at hold. For as long as I need to. Thank you for understanding.

AMY (ZanZarah)
this is redesign of a character from PC game ZanZarah: The Hidden Portal (2002)

In original game concept, Amy is eighteen years old teenager. Little bit nerdy, little bit adventurous. And she has oldschool walkman on her hip! Anyway, one day she gets trough portal to another world, Zanzarah. World of magic and fairies. The game uses similar mechanics as Pokemon, except the Pokemon are the fairies. 

What I wanted was to bring her rather outdated concept design into present day. But because I like these old games, their colour schemes and atmosphere, I was careful to keep this essence unchanged. So if you understand this more like a fanart, I have no objection. 

If you are interested in this old game or perhaps you want to see original concept, I encourage you to google the screenshots.
soft daylight
Don't remember the las time the painting was a race with fading sun. This was an quiet evening, a cloudy one too. And even tho the fate of the day held harrowing promises, This moment was nice.

Looks like I'm going to give up textures too. There is so much more one can express with subtle shades and tones that are otherwise completely spoiled. so much it seems like the only purpose of texture is to distract the eye from inaccurate interpretation of the painted subject. 

oh and there is a progress gif too!…

On this one I tried to limit myself to basic photoshop roundbrush. Of course I was regulating the softness

yep, the brush doesn't really mater. Sometimes all the textures seem like a way to avoid painting details. But hey, I did it too(and still do). Its not easy to paint clean.
