Ugh, so it's finally finished. I'm probably going to disappoint Valuna because there's only a horribly abstract BG with some bokeh brushes floating around. I tried but didn't like any of my ideas. To tell you the truth, I didn't plan any kind of BG for this because I painted the girl just to put her on my tumblr. And she was supposed to be transparent so...

Those of you who took part in commenting on my Sandbox thread know that I started with this sketch. The girl is my original character. She's actually the real Elisa - something like my alter ego - a fire manipulating vampire. I really love fire and I guess I just wanted an excuse to make some flames so I came up with this image. I used this amazing site to create all the fire you can see in the picture. Elisa's dress was inspired by a costume sold online a looong time ago. I tried to search for it but I suppose it's not being sold anywhere anymore. I suck at painting folds and I suck even more at shading them. I'm not sure if they look natural or not... The boots I painted myself although I think I could have done better. They don't look like rubber boots anymore (I hope) which is great but now they seem more like latex than heavy boots. Katanas are Elisa's weapons. I might paint her in her fighter's costume in the future. I also tried to use gradients more in this image because there are the flames which are illuminating Elisa's back so I was using a lot of yellow. I hope colors, lights and shadows are alright.

And lastly, I would like to thank everyone who commented in the Sandbox thread. You guys helped me a lot and I'll do my best to remember all the advice you gave me.

Enjoy! And as always, don't repost, please or Elisa will hunt you down.

    Yay, you finished it :)
    I like when people continue working with their own characters.
    About the art in general: I like it :) But must say, her butt looks a bit too flat... And also there suppose to be more lightning effects on her fringe because of the eye-fire.

    So keep up making original works! :DD

    ooh and only see this now lol *gets bricked*
    i really liked how you did her hair i loved the effect really and i liked the clothes too the colours were nice but about the boots i do miss the dents to make it seem more lie combat boots XD
    maybe you could have added more fire into the background too XD
    but it's a really cool outcome dear! i want to see more of her haha <3
