Ambush

Original size 8.5x11 2013 Alex Ledante

This was a promotional piece for a Silent Hill type game and I wanted the character to seem vulnerable yet alluring. Notice how the lighting runs the gamut from over-exposed to pitch black? That's tough to pull off but I love the result so I'm going to have to keep that one in my bag of tricks

That cool rimlighting from the side is my personal favorite, although I have no idea how it would ever happen in the real world. Oh wait, I just remembered this takes place in the Otherworld, so I suppose that's alright then...
