Art #52: Rozelle | The Ice Warrior Princess




Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the holidays. In this part of the world where I live, Christmas Eve has already passed seven hours ago and I'm mostly likely asleep while this post gets published. Thanks to Peakd's schedule feature, really helps me a lot to post at a specific time I like.

Around two weeks ago, ArtPark began it's holiday drawing challenges wherein for that particular week, the challenge was to create a holiday creature. The subject given sounds easy but it was kind of difficult, actually, as you have to create your own creature. I just thank God for blessing me always with ideas, which pops up when deadline is near, even if it wasn't the most creative. Two days before the deadline, I've thought of creating an ice warrior princess.




Rozelle, The Ice Warrior Princess

I named her Rozelle. She's an ice warrior princess with a blue skin and lips pertaining to how cold her body is, while her hair is as white as snow. Rozelle is a tiny creature living inside her pine tree kingdom. She's a very skilled warrior who protects her place by luring her enemies inside the tree, a place she is very familiar with, and utilizing the tree branches and other stuff to take a successful offense.

Here in my drawing,she made use of a Christmas ball for a surprise attack while controlling her balance by poking her ice spear into it.

Drawing a female character with some ice power makes me think of Elsa from Frozen, so if you see some similarities with their close, know that I did my best not to imitate it. I want Rozelle's dress to have that cold impression. I'm not very familiar with the types of fabrics but this one shines when reflected by light. Then on her cape is diamond, a symbol of her belonging to the royal family.

I liked how I drew her face, by the way. :) It's exactly the kind of expression I had in my mind.




Drawing Process




Mayday! Mayday!

It was an unlucky day for me when I opened Clip Studio Paint and a dialog box opened. Since I know that it takes a while before the program opens in my laptop, I kept myself busy playing kalimba and so I didn't pay much attention to the dialog box and just clicked "set to default". While it was processing the command, I slowly realized that it was setting everything to default. Which meant, the brushes I added long ago getting removed. Oh sh—!

Long story short, my brushes were gone and I have to put them back one by one. I have tons of brushes downloaded and it's exhausting to go over the files and find the brush I always use so I ended up just adding a few and used it for this artwork.

And as if that wasn't enough, I just found out that the timelapse files I saved can't be played. I'm not exactly sure why but maybe the video settings was too high that my ancient laptop can no longer handle it. The settings used to be at 1080p but it was changed to 2000+px (Sorry, I can't remember the exact numbers) because of that damned set to default button. And because of that, I am sorry I don't have any timelapse video to include for this drawing.

Anyway, I enjoyed drawing Rozelle. I also love the transparent Christmas ball. It looks cool. :)

To finish the artwork, I overlayed an oil paint texture and reduced the opacity down to about 12%. I got used to adding textures that not adding it felt like my drawings are naked. Lol.

Next time, I wanted to create a normal size Rozelle. :)

That is a good thing to be able to show up in crunch time when it matters the most! It means you know how to win!

Hey, thanks for those motivating words! It made me feel better, to be honest. ^_^ But it's not that I like to cram, I actually don't like rushing when I draw because it makes me feel very anxious with everything.

I get it but you still rock and did an amazing job! This time of year, especially with the times can be distracting. It is taking everything in me just to make posts and engage on HIVE so I get it. This really did come out freaking amazing!

Take it easy.. :) Pretty a lot of us feel that way right now. Weather is cool right now too from where I live so I feel quite lazy to do things. 😂
Thanks again!

Wow, that's nice. Pretty sure you'll have a wonderful time at the farm! Melatonin? Does that mean..you have trouble sleeping?
I'm in a tropical country..but recently it's been a little bit cool. I prefer it this way.

Lucky, I would not enjoy the mosquitos or snakes but everything else would be amazing!! Yeah I quit consuming cannabis as it is a medically prescribed but I need clarity and better focus. It has been 4 weeks and feeling much more alert.

Oh, no.. There are no snakes at the cities, probably in the rice fields and mountains. hehe. Staying in the farm will surely give you clarity and better focus. Air is better there too compared when in the city.
