Earlier in the year I was approached and asked if I'd like to participate in donating a charity piece to RTSideQuest's RTX Charity Cocktail party and Auction. I was greatly greatly GREATLY honored to even be considered!
I was given the theme of a Renaissance influenced piece and given I'm an Art History Major with a specialty in the Byzantine to Late Renaissance, I fangasmed all over the place.
The RWBY girls are done in a statue-esque angelic style mostly inspired by Bernini's work with Angelical figures that you can see throughout all of his work around the Vatican. The dome was inspired by one of Bernini's work that housed a sculpture titled the Statue of St. Longinus also found in the Vatican.
I was able to touch bases on nearly all mediums with this one.
Sketched out on paper with mechanical pencil
Lineart done in SAI Painter for smooth effects
