This is my first phase of sketching for Jamie Le Fays competition Bring Ahe'ey to Life.
I have an exhibition coming in few days (PANIC!) but I'm not making any new works for that one, so i got few moments to devote to #bringaheeytolife. I listened to the first chapters available on audio few times, and I'm catching up with the rest of the story.
The scene is from chapter nine with the young Sky left to fend herself against some Hu’urei. She is here reaching for the blood of one of the attackers to paint her face.
I am working with the windows paint program, starting out pretty rough trying to save detail for later - of course i could not help myself on some areas. I may switch to another program to add colors but we will see. There is room to make changes on background and details like the armor, I got the feeling it was pretty light in this scene. Looking forward to hear what does the author have to say @jamielefay ?

I just did a really deep reintroduction post, if you care to know about the artist behind the works:
