Lightning by AmberDust Lightning by AmberDust
Print available here: [link]

An old upload here, this was previously part of a collection uploaded here: but I felt this one needed it's own space.

This is my favourite from a series of illustrations I did on upcoming video games for 2009. This was done for my college magazine, ZED, for the gaming article "Game On" which was published two weeks ago. You can view the website here: [link]

What medium did you use?
Also -- oh my God. She looks badass! And the details, you included ALL of them!
Plus the shading is really dynamic, it reminds me of an American comic book
and the yellow really makes all the other colors really pop out at you.

Thanks! This was entirely digitally painted in Photoshop, but with some overlayed paint splats for texture. I started with a loose sketch, coloured underneath it then painted on top of it for detail. Thanks for your comments! :)

Thanks! I do sell prints, but last time I checked, DeviantArt were quite picky about fanart... perhaps I could upload this as a print on my RedBubble account if you'd really like one? :)

I would :]! If that doesn't cause too much trouble for you :] Would it cost very much?

Buying a poster from RedBubble would be $27.36USD or £14.40GPB for a 42x54 inch poster... I can double check prices when uploading this picture though in case I can do a smaller (and cheaper) print? It's up to you! :)

Yea i am looking for something semi small. Sorry it took so long to reply I have final exams at my university so I am avoiding the internet haha. I just want something around a sheet of paper so 81/2 x 11? Not too expensive either

In that case, it would be very easy to print this yourself via cheaper print methods such as Snapfish.com? [link] I can note you a larger copy of the artwork minus the watermark if you'd like? :)

Beautiful colours, fantastic linework, and the flair in the whole work is just amazing. Also loving the yellow background, it really suits the piece. Great stuff!
