Full view is better!
Goldmoon, from the Dragonlance novels written by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. Original character design by Larry Elmore.
Some friends of mine saw that disappointing trailer for the animated Dragonlance feature, and one thing lead to another, and a couple of folks decided to do redesigns. Some were angling for designs that are easy to animate, but I just wanted to have fun drawing the character. And then I just wanted to have fun coloring it in photoshop. And now I am done. HUZZAH!
The clouds and hills are painted in photoshop, from a stock photo
as reference. Everything was cg'ed on my tablet in photoshop, except for the lichen on the stone, which is from a photo I took of an old english tomb stone.
*edit: I updated the drawing and the colors to change her deer-in-the-headlights expression, add sparkly glow and reflected light, and made numerous slight edits here and there. I like this one better!Old pencils are here
