This one was done for a friend who drew my characters, and so I wanted to draw some of hers in return.

These characters were created by her as part of a contest to post a new game idea. Her idea is based on the story of the Tower of Babel, where a princess gets corrupted by an evil spirit and it is up to two heroes and their mastery of the Babellian symbols to stop her.

I really like how I composed this drawing. I think I got the ominous feeling of the princess down just right. And the lighting effects were the result of an experiment with texturing the colours. Honestly, I love how it looks overall, though I think I could have approached it a bit differently. The way it looks was not exactly how I intended it to look from the beginning, though I can’t really explain why. I will just have to take a different angle next time.
