Here is my third Star Wars piece that is linked with my Rey and Anakin artworks, this piece I titled it Loss of Humanity, Consumed by Darkness because the dark force changes you to the point when you loose who you use to be and I have Rey on the darkside as this could be her fate. This round I drew and painted this piece digitally as I wanted to create a final mix media piece with all three of my works. I still need to figure out the composition but hope that it turns out to what I have envisioned in my head.
This piece is fanart from the Star Wars series and the most recent movie the Force Awakens. After watching the Force Awakens there were many predictions about Rey and Kylo, especially with Rey possibly going to the dark side and following in Anakin's footsteps. This piece is strictly a prediction of Rey's Fate, but wanted to the painting to tell a story and foreshadow what could happen.
The challenges of this piece were learning how to draw digitally, use a different type of lighting system, use texture brushes to make it look realistic and exlpore with different facial expressions. I am using three lights my natural light which is the off white light reflecting on her skin, then my dramatic pink light from her lightsaber to add some edge and contrast. Lastly my dark blue reflective light from the night sky. Exploring different facial expressions was very interesting because I had to study the muscles in the face and know what parts of the face cringes and tightens up.
My speed art video for this piece will be coming soon! Stay tuned!
