The Black Mirage contest 2014 entry: Althea by niinamok The Black Mirage contest 2014 entry: Althea by niinamok
My second entry for this CONTEST. I wanted to draw someone different from Sigrun, so Althea was the obvious one. They're both beautiful characters.

Oh, wow, I love the pose here; it has tons of dynamic energy and those highly appealing huge sweeping gestural curves! Very inspiring! I'm also impressed by the skillfully rendered details and the fancy lighting effects; feels really magical!

Thank you! Those are my two favorite process: setting up the pose and adding the lights :3
If only someone else can do the painstaking line art for me...xD

How long did you spend on the line art on this? Actually, how long did you spend deciding on the pose? Or finishing the whole thing?! I want exact times in seconds!!
I ask because currently I'm struggling to produce anything because my mind seems to just give up if I haven't made something amazing in like 15 minutes or so. I'm always interested then in hearing how long it takes artists to do really impressive things like this, so then I can convince my mind to spend more time on things!

I didn't have a stopwatch on me, but I'll try to be as accurate :) 
Brainstorming/researching poses takes different amount of time for each piece, so I'll skip that one...usually, it's the pose that inspires me to draw so this can take hours to days.
