this would be my tribute to the next StarCraft expansion, rendering this year the Year of the Swarm. while i really wanted to try and draw Infested Kerrigan, that would have most likely killed me due to the details, and i felt obligated to choose regular human Kerrigan instead, with her becoming de-infested.

i tried out a new painting style with this, as it turns out the method i worked with made it much easier to draw, which was probably another one of the reasons i was able to even finish this.

and i can't tell you how proud i am of myself for a change. art has been a really big problem lately, my inspiration and motivation has fluctuated a lot and it's really frustrated me. however, my muse seemed to return from his vacation and literally punched me in the face, giving me all the motivation i needed to get this done. while this is far from being any kind of masterpiece, i still like how it came out for taking 6 hours to draw.

i could go on but i'm tired and i'm afraid i'd sound too self-absorbed over this, so i'll leave it at that.

This is fantastic. I love her expression. :heart:
I think Kerrigan may be one of my most favorite Blizzard characters. She and her story are just so... Unique.

Wow, I'm glad to see artwork from you in my inbox again! It's wonderful to see your progress - the more realistic style really fits your usually cartoony-ish stuff. :)

Stunning use of colors dear!
Adore the mixture of emotions on her face and the background certainly reflects that very well.
Lovely shading as well and in all just a gorgeous looking piece.

You can be proud, it's just beautiful!
Firstly the character is very succeeded. The set of light and shadow is mastered. I love the colors and the style.

Good job young artist. ^^

omg Kitten this is just wonderful! I love the shading in the face, and the little highlight on her left jaw! The tear in her right eye is a great little detail as well~
The only thing I would suggest is to maybe try and have a bit more highlights in the armour, specifically on her breast plates? Maybe a red highlight on her right shoulder. that would definitely bring out the armour. Other than that this is fabulous!! I'm proud of you for getting your muse back darling~ ;A;
