Kitana Portrait by joshwmc Kitana Portrait by joshwmc
I've recently been reading some awesome books by the great fantasy artists Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell, these book inspired me to try using Oils for the first time, needless to say this image of Mortal Kombat's Kitana is nowhere near the level of what Vallejo and Bell can produce, I tried at best to copy the techniques both artists say they use in the books, I think I need a bit more practice before I reach their level. :)


The image referenced used is courtesy of Tw1stedTruth-stock [link] probably about 13 hours of work, maybe more.

kjbdiujbqdajb!!! This is so amazing!! Lately I've been tossing up to cosplay as Kitana or Silk Spectre (from Watchmen) at a con later in the year and I've convinced myself to go as silk spectre, but now after seeing this picture you have inspired me to go as this version of Kitana. In this picture, to me, you have managed to capture the humanity of her and how she would look in real life. Well done, it's just absolutely awesome! haha :D
