Made a little more ink wash progress on this new Nyx illustration that will be the cover artwork for my indie comic magazine Unique Realm Illustrated Issue #4 featuring the story of Twisted Fate.

For this this painting stage, I started by inking the chest armor with Faber-Castell PITT Pens. Then, I painted the top portion of the armor using dry brush technique and then moved on to doing the same with the bottom portion of the rib armor. Next, I painted the top chest skin area with diluted Liquitex black Soft Body acrylic. Next, I the rest of the body using the same technique. With those areas being finished, I moved on to painting the belt area. I started painting the skull area first, I built up the skull up slowly by slowly layering the washes. Next, I used Copic grays and POSCA white paint maker to fill the base area under the skull. Lastly, I painted black leather area using dry brush technique to achieve the leather feel.
