Finally I managed to color the Luminare sketch. 🙂

As part of a school assignment – a fire exercise – I pulled that sketch out and got to work. Luminare-Blue-Fire-viennajetschko

If you haven’t come across my previous post featuring the lineart/sketch version of this picture, you might want to know a bit more about this creature. The character is part of a comic idea I have in mind but won’t be able to turn into reality because of… life. She’s part of a humanoid race called “Luminare”.

They’re somewhat alien, ethereal, and draw from universal wisdom. Or at least they appear to do so. They seem to have only the good in mind for humankind but there’s also something strange and unsettling about them. In short: There’s something greyfolkish about them.

I want light and enlightenment to play an important part with them and I like the idea of them not being made from flesh or such things but something like (pure) light.

All of this is a bit vague – mostly because I haven’t developed the idea much further – but I like the outcome of the picture. And I hope you do too. 🙂

This picture was done in Photoshop.
