I never thought I'd see the end of this thing.
I'm stopping here before I find a new spot to nitpick and/or redraw. I think I reached 1000+ layers, I lost count after awhile.
Not much info on the character yet. She started on the simple idea of drawing something flow-y and getting the Final Fantasy X bug again. Her name is Drisana and she's half Guado.
I'm playing with the idea of making the other half Al Bhed just because it would never happen in a million years.
She's your typical Summoner and I'll likely get around to drawing her guardians later.
When I first got the idea to add Shiva in, I feared she's be super hard and that I'd give up half way through... Turns out she was the easiest bit of the whole thing.
Though her hair was a little annoying. I had to make up some of the details here and there, since it was really hard to get clear shots of everything, much less at that angle. But I'm happy with her.
I once again tried to draw some pyreflies. Maybe someday I'll be happy with them. The summoning circle was interesting to make too. Had some details I had to make up there as well. The original picture was hard to make out..
The background is based on the Calm Lands. I'm trying to break out of my comfort zone and make more detailed backgrounds. We'll see how that goes.
Worked on this off and on since April. It was the piece I'd turn to when I was sick of working on the ebook cover.
Don't know what it is with me and making Summoners...Edit 4/10/2012:
Got rid of her head decoration. It was bugging me.
