Carola and the Beholder by DM-Mike Carola and the Beholder by DM-Mike
Download for full-sized version.

This was a commission for :iconxannerobinx:! If you want to commission something, check my page! Currently a massive discount!

Phew finally finished it! It took me about 30 hours! Drawn with mechanical pencil on four separate sheets, then coloured and brought together in Photoshop CS4. I'm really proud of this piece as I think it is my best piece yet.

The woman to the left is an Elf Cleric named Carola. She's my sister's character in my 4th edition DnD campaign. The creature to the right is a beholder. They are in an abandoned part of a Dwarf city.

Awesome illustration from your game! Great colors and line art! I like the moody effects with the lighting and shadows too.

Thank you very much! Obviously, in this scene, the lighting proved to be the biggest challenge. I wanted it to be realistic, but not too realistic since that would mean I'd lose half of the drawing.

I can see how it took a long time to do. I like the detailed border too!

Thank you! Although that is mostly thanks to the creator of the border! I only used my very limited knowledge of PS to pimp it :P

Oh. Still, it looks great!

I still have not mastered much with digital effects. I can scan my drawings in and tweak them a little in MS Paint, MS Picture It and CorelPaint. I have played with GIMP. But, that is about it.

I've only ever tried Photoshop, but I love it. Tried some ArtRage recently, but it's just an entirely different kind of program.

Photoshop seems popular. Is it expensive?
