Levana by SparkOut1911 Levana by SparkOut1911
I'm not even sure what's going on here.

I worked on and off on this picture for three years.  I picked it up first in 2011 and decided that I hated it so I stopped working on it.  Last year I picked it back up and worked on the face some, then decided I was stumped and didn't want to work on the rest of it, so it sat again, until now.  Finally I got the inspiration to finish this thing and it looks absolutely nothing like the original sketch.  That's probably a good thing.

This particular character was one that never got used.  Her name is Levana and she is blind.  I abandoned that little story a long time ago but she still deserved a painting :3

Enjoy!

This will be making its debut as a print at Otakon 2014 :D so excited!

Lol, I do this a lot...but often never finish...or it's been so long I just start over because I figure I can just redo it better at that point XD (I got some WIP in my WIP folder I haven't touched since then...-_-)

Those wings are absolutely gorgeous. You did such a great job, it's almost like I can feel how soft they are right through the screen. I'm glad you stuck it out and finished this, because it is amazing <3

If you ever pick up her story again, I'd love to hear it :)

I'm not sure if I will or not, but if I do I'll be sure to post it somewhere lol. I need to brush up on my writing first ;__; unfortunately I'm not very good at it.

She reminds me a lot of one of my OC's. Every time I see your
picture I get the urge to write more of my characters story.

Still trying to get a better handle on expression.  I notice a lot of what i do lacks much expression,  probably why it won't stand out much.

no , its not that, i have seen your other work i think its that the eyes have a similar colour to the eyes so they seem to disappear

Wow that is beautiful.
Those wings must have taken a while but I'm particularly drawn to her hair! 
Having this great finished product look nothing like your original sketch means you've improved ;) 
Awesome work!

Thank you!  I may post some of the progression at some point lol.  The difference is really quite shocking.  I was surprised with myself at how much the piece changed by the time I was ready to call it finished.
