Golden Lies by Vilva Golden Lies by Vilva
"Everybody just wants to protect me with their golden lies, but really, they're just hurting me."
~Starling

Tumblr'd here!: [link]
Heres an update on Starling's character design! Her story's still under major construction; I've changed it quite a bit!
This was one of those anticipated speedpaints that turn out to be quite a bit of a slowpaint :T It's been too long since I've done one of these, I think...

I went with my Sunflower Skies color scheme and used these really amazing painterly brushes: [link]

Drawn in photoshop CS4 with a wacom tablet
Character/ design/ art © me, Vivian Lin

that's almost a exact replica of what I imagine my main character to be. She just has shorter hair and darker eyes in my amagination. But brilliant lighting. Really love this one

Brilliantly done! Love her complexion and expression! And the hair captures the texture without being overly detailed! Excellent! :D
