Stingray Sorceress by AudreyBenjaminsen Stingray Sorceress by AudreyBenjaminsen
Another new piece for this year...and just in the nick of time for my school's annual Illest of Ill show. She is a sea sorceress wandering the streets of Paris... I was initially inspired while sketching at an exhibit of Gustav Klimpt's drawings... things just sort of took wing from there. I learned a lot from this piece, and it's the first painting I've completed using a cintiq. I think this is going to shape up to be an excellent year. I believe in myself.

Great concept. I love the very traditional looking background, and the way its colours contrast with the woman. Love it. :)

I adore the line of her profile, and the composition flowing out in light and color behind her, lovely

Is that a horseshoe crab on her head ? :) Anyway I really love it ! She's so elegant and fierce. And, as always, I'm totally amazed by your painting style. Great job, as always !

AUDREY!!! This is so cool! I love how you mentioned Klimpt; I can totally see the influence. And I love how you exaggerated the anatomy of the woman, (especially with the head shape). Overall, this piece is awesome. :)

Also, really digging on your use of cool tones in skin. As someone whose work leans toward the warmy Autumnal tones, I envy how well you do the cool stuff. I liked this piece's use as well: [link]
