I decided to try out some brushes in Adobe Photoshop and this was the result. I started out wanting to draw Red Sonja, but ended up making a much more generic barbarian fighter instead.
I’ve done a lot of harsh shadows or soft directional shadows, but have never really done shading with the concept of multiple angle lighting. This piece was an experiment and I enjoy how it turned out. Once in a while I enjoy stepping out of my comfort zone when creating art, helps improve my style sometimes.
