This artwork began when I was creating the promotional renders for my new Vespera 2 character (available now in my Renderosity store). I had a sample render of her posed much like she is in the finished artwork and decided I had to do something with it. It was just that cool of a pose. After some suggestions from my friends on Facebook, I added the gothic cemetery setting and the spooky fire magic above her hands. It truly took on a life of its own.
After rendering just the character in the setting, I enhanced the render with a lot of postwork. The flames were created with a combination of brushes and layer styles that were then adjusted with an HSL layer. I also added some light enhancements to the character to simulate the fire reflecting on her using a dodge layer. I created the spooky fog near the bottom using an HSL layer with a fog brush on a mask layer. I think this artwork, once completed, had about 21 layers in all.
