"Vulpes lagopus" Original artwork
How are ya doing today?
Those who've seen my works before know that I take my time with details and overall look, also I rarely take commissions, but this time is different. The artwork that I'm presenting to you is a commission from a friend of mine, This is going to be turned into a Tattoo. for this arctic fox, I spend a little bit more than 8 hours plus the reference collecting. I used symmetry tool for most of the time, just the basic soft round brush with black and white selected on the palette. Normally, I need more than a week to finish a piece, around 2 months...
This piece, however, was built already, I just had to capture a feeling, my client asked for badass arctic fox... Say no more was my reply. I thinking about his request for a couple of weeks, how to make it while working on the Mermaid, my personal project in progress at the moment.
I streamed the whole thing, and for most of my friends is unusual to see me make a painting in one sitting. For me it's a true level up, so... I don't know what else to add, if you have questions, feel free to ask!
I could not stop myself from playing with some adjustment layers and gradient maps, this is the result. And here is the work without the smoke and snowflakes
Have a great day!
