Das Haus Des Raben by isissousa2 Das Haus Des Raben by isissousa2
This is the front cover of a wrap-around hard cover I illustrated and designed for Sascha Schmitz/Das Neue Licht Verlag.
Unfortunately I can’t post the full picture here, you may see it out in Germany in your favorite book store!

This character is Anna, who is coming back to revenge the death of her family and destruction of her village.

Painted on Painter 13, the last painting I did with my Wacom Intuos 3, before I upgraded to the new Intuos Pro.
I used Fine tip soft airbrush and sponge, as usual.

Oh this is stunning, Isis! I love the colour choice of the background and that leather work is so tactile. What a beautiful portrait - she'd look great as a book cover, I wish I could see it!

Hi Rochelle! Thanks for the lovely words! The background was very difficult as I am not a background person hehe :P This is indeed a book cover :) The background continues as back cover :D Cheers!

Do you know? Her face reminds me to my character 'spirit' both have some resemblance, Don't you think? One brunette and the other blond. =D
I love how you painted her cloak, sword, hair and her costume with many details, is really beautiful. Excellent work dear Isis. A hug! :hug:

isissousa2 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I think that's because both of them are beautiful and strong! They have determination! So I agree with you Ginebra! They are both very similar!

Glad u liked her costume and props! It was a lot of work, exactly because of so many details :)
Big hug! :D
