Vin from Mistborn
Ever since I picked back up with my art, I've enjoyed doing fanart from books and movies. There are many authors who can create such convincing characters, I just have to try to see them visually, on paper. If you aren't familiar with Brandon Sanderson, I suggest you pick up his Mistborn trilogy to start. I read the first one years ago and was so upset about the death of a certain character, it took me 2 years before finally continuing and finishing the series. It's one of my favorites now. After finishing the first book, I wanted to draw a scene that happens at the end. Vin, the main female character, goes off into the night to grieve. She simply gives over to her sorrow and anger and floats above the city, questioning her purpose and future. The mists come and envelope her. Here is the first pass of oils on board. I have no idea how I'm going to pull the tops of the buildings up through the mists....always a struggle to put on paper what I see so clearly in my head.
