Keepers of Grimoire— Tae

Here's another painting I did for the Orca Bear Studios game, Keepers of Grimoire. It depicts an elfin character named Tae. He's a frontiersman of sorts so I felt that a cold mountain setting would make an appropriate backdrop for this scene. I tried to stay loose and painterly with the background and even though the background colors are primarily cool, I began with a very warm ochre color as a base for the entire painting and let it show through in places. It adds interest to the picture and helps unify it as well. I also think it helps give a digital painting like this a slightly more natural feel.

  1. Really nice Jim ! I love your colour choices in this one. I wasn't sure this was one of yours at first, the figure wasn't wearing 6 tons of armour. :)
    Well done sir.
