Being a bounty hunter is not easy. Sandy Clowes can tell you about it, because she is one of them. Although you live for the danger and excitement, it's also a lonely and exhausting life. In the end you can't trust anyone...
But ok, after all these years she's kind of used to it, the people, the threats, etcetera.
Until this last Christmas, which normally is her only time of hope and peace. Because it was Santa himself who refused to give poor Sandy a nice pressie for the holidays for the reason that (I quote) "she was not much of a nice and even a naughty lady"! Said Santa!! Who does he think he is and talking to?! Isn't this girl also just some mother's daughter?...
So yeah, then something snapped in Sandy's head and made herself a new hunter assignment. Wanted: Santa Claus!
It's personal now, you know?!
This entry is 100% drawn in ARTRAGE. The program is some simplified Photoshop where the focus is on drawing and painting. It's a pretty nice program, especially when you're used to the old fashioned way of drawing and painting; the brushes can make a same certain effect. However, many other options (like masking, advanced transform and more handy things from PS) are missing.
For this entry I used some references. Check the SBS how they're used (nothing is traced).
Needless to say that this entry should be submitted a month ago. Time wasn't with me though, and I didn't want to wait another year before I could upload this image.
Before I forget:
****must be seen in High Resolution****
Otherwise you can't see Sandy's tongue touching her upper lip...
Thanks for reading all this. (5 years and 1661 days ago)
The only images I used that was not my own are the seashells which are credited to Emma-Frost-Stock and the Starfish provided by Pxleyes.
The other six images were mine. The end of her tail was a fractal I created in Apophysis.
*Update: I attempted to add adjustments offered by jawshoewah and greymval and Erathion.
I added several layers of colors to fix the overall feel of the image. Very curious to get more opinions. (5 years and 1680 days ago)
