story sketch: shine on [update: 07-18-2011]

This sketch is based on [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith's poem shine on about Shahana, the world-weary paladin, and Ari, the peasant girl who became her apprentice and travelling companion when a raid on her village left her with no better options. Shahana has found a fallen star and speaks of her goddess Gailah, weakened in an attack by priests of a rival god, but does not concede defeat, using the light of the star as a symbol of the resolute faith by which Gailah's followers will one day prevail.

Wow!

The changes are subtle but in certain places they really pop. I think my favorite detail is that front in the lower left where just the tip turns white as it bends forward. Sometimes a drawing has a hard time conveying depth but the lighting makes this one of the most 3D images I've seen in a while. I also like the razor-sharp lines at the front of Shahana's armor. The critters are cute too.
