Gullveig by hel999 Gullveig by hel999
One of the reasons why I've been absent for so long:

I've finally watched all episodes of Game of Thrones season 1 (unfortunately not in German tv yet) and started reading the Song of Fire and Ice book two because I was so curious how it would go on.

So when I started doodling a face a few days ago I knew I would turn it in something more fantasy-like:) She's a little bit inspired by Sansa Stark from GoT, but I didn't mean to portray her. That's why I gave her another name. Clothes are inspired by some Renaissance paintings.

No direct reference for her, but a few photographs of different faces that helped me with the lighting. The background contains overpainted textures from my own photographs. Lazy background, I know. But want to move on to other paintings.

Painted in Photoshop, AzPainter, Mypaint. About a day of work. Will probably revise this one soon. I'm still not happy with some parts, but pretty proud of the face.

Edit 10-07-11: Improved the eyes a little with the help of the wonderful *crayonmaniac

Great job!

I'm almost done watching season 2 of the "Game of Thrones" tv show.

I highly recommend reading the books.  They are fantastic!  :)

This is great! It inspired me to start drawing human faces, that I always was scared of drawing.

i think she drew the eyes like that because it's more realistic.
you know, nothing in real life is symetrical and perfect.

Who cares about the 'lazy' background? Those eyes, and those lips, that ribbon and her hair....Wow.

The intensity and intelligence in her face say she's no-one to be trifled with. It's so wonderful to see a portrait of a formidable female who doesn't need a great deal of accoutrement to convey that; the choice of Renaissance robes for her is perfect. And her eyes are perfect in apposition to her name: This is a woman who sees far, indeed.
