HOOOKAY. This is a contest entry for
(nice privee, always the last minute submission...)
Anyways, I decided to really challenge myself so I used corel painter and draw the body in one layer, the fire in one layer and background in one layer so in total I only used 3 layers compared to the usual 10 or more layers!
Plus, I wanted to experiment with color schemes so
The character's name is Alaistair, an original character of
, who's an angel that can transform into a dragon (I know right how cool is that! all of
's characters are so interesting!). Anyways, in this artwork he's fire dancing because "his religion follows 12 female gods, and he worships the Sun God the most, often he firedances at midnight as an offering of his power to appease his Ruling God." Oh, and his fire is supposed to be blue and that's why I got this idea for a great color scheme! In here he's fire dancing and after he danced really long the sun rises up at dawn.
Personally, I really love the color contrast between the fire and the background and I really love the purple gradient of the background. The body itself, eeeh not so much but I think I can still improve some more
