- Ishiyo - by Anathematixs - Ishiyo - by Anathematixs
This is one of those paintings that wandered on my harddisk for ages, left unfinished.
And working on a big project you sometimes find the need to take a breath of fresh air and do something different.
Found this .psd and got a spur of inspiration and actually managed to save another painting from eternal unfinished limbo :D

I do recall using a reference for the pose, but I can't, for the life of me, remember which one. Though I do believe it was a sculpture...
So if you recognize your sculpture, please contact me and I will give you proper credit!!!

**EDIT** Reference found!! Its a Mark Newman sculpture!
Thanks to ~bluedevilsinger

Thank you so much!
I really love painting hair, and this painting was like a birthday-party as far as that goes.

I know exactly what you mean about getting a breath of fresh air. I'm currently working on a piece but I'm sort of waiting for some inspiration to finish it. I still haven't finished my Kobe Bryant piece and the problem is the lack of inspiration on that one too lol. The Bow and Arrow is what caught my eye. Pretty cool.

I've gone through those "dry spells" myself. Sometimes even for months... It's very hard not to let those demotivate you, but you should just keep on painting. Or at least sketching/doodling/scribbling.
You never know when inspiration might hit you :)

Oh, it's a sculpture of Serafina Peccala from The Golden Compass. It's a pose she does in the movie. I recognize it. He has a few photos of the sculpt. It has a similar pose to another sculpt of his called Ramayan, so if that isn't it, it may be Ramayan. (It really is sad when I can recognize a pose from my favorite movie. TT...TT Well, it happens to be, like, the one trilogy I've read 15 thousand times too.....so, naturally, when the movie came out on DVD, I got the movie AND the soundtrack. Sad, really. XD I might have gotten a Iorek if I didn't think it'd be ripped apart by my dog. Oie.)

This one, right?

I wish they were continuing the movies. They only did the one! The director was forced by the film company to cut out certain parts, and he hated that, so he refused to do the sequels....and so there was no sequels. TT_TT Now, THAT is sad. Oh, and we can't forget the protests over the movie being made (and shown) in the first place. Oie. It was epic here in the States. It's one of the Top 10 "banned" books in recent years. Some people just have very narrow minds.
