"The Empress of the Winds" by Slag

Finally! After countless redos and redraws, I finally finished my Barbariccia.

I wanted to get her done way back last year right after Rubicante, but just couldn't get the right pose. Then I moved. Then other projects came up. Lo and behold, months later, I started sketching her again just to finish these four up. Drew a pose I liked, inked it, and then started coloring. Normally, I can color a full piece in about 2 days. She took about 5 weeks. I kept on trying different things with her hair and just couldn't get anything to look good, until I stumbled on what you see now.

Ultimately, I am happy with with how she came out, as I am with all of the Four Fiends. Rubicante is still my favorite. He really proved tough to top.

Phew..okay! All done!

finalalias Great stuff, Slag! Your design skills really complement your artwork.

Kane This is great stuff! I especially love the partially petrified arms. Not only does it bring some much needed variety to her color palette (you know, insofar as grey can do that), but also I like the thematic element. Truly, great stuff! I can't wait to see more!

MogMaster Ooooh, the final installment of an excellent series. Gotta say, I still love Scarmiglione the most, but this, too, is quite excellent.
