Smoke and Bone by caughtinthehurricane Smoke and Bone by caughtinthehurricane
Digital painting for the Stylenoir Monarchy contest.

I'm really pleased with how this one turned out, let me know what you think!
I tried not to use any references, the only one used was while sketching out the skull teeth :)


Name derived from a novel I just love, Daughter of Smoke and bone. I was stuck for a name, and it kind of just fits well:) Also, the blue hair :D


Goes without saying, but this one done digitally, hence it is entering the digital portion of the contest :)

This is by far, The most Orginal Entry For The Contest Ive Seen (Except Mine^^)
The Blue Hair Is Just Fabulous And Stunning, The ''Crown' Is kinda Creepy Tho.
I Understod That She Got Her Skullteeth and Chin By smoking? Thats Why Smoking Is Bad, kids
I Like The Black And Darkblue background, And The Blackshirt fits in Well.
And Yes Daughter of Smoke and bone Is A Amazing Novel.

As You Might have Noticed Already, i can't Write Critiques, And Now Im Just Stalling, To Get Up To 100 Words c:


And i Wish You The Best Of Luck In The Contest :D

I think you've done a fantastic job for the contest. :)

I love your shading technique you've used, especially on the hair and neck! (and that you took my advice around the eye ;))

I liked watching the way you drew the jaw bone, and the cracks in it add a little more detail to it. The stitches along the back of it is a nice touch.

Your picture (I said this before) reminds me of Tim Burton's film, the 'Corpse Bride' with the blue hair and such. (I love that movie)

I am trying to understand your title choice for the picture. Could you please explain (if there is a reason for it) on "Smoke"?

Overall, a fantastic job, it was a lot easier trying to see what you were going for when watching you draw this, love the shading and colours used, keep up the fantastic work in the future! :)

Best of luck in the contest :)

Very awesome! I love the colours and concept. Her face is really well done. The crown does feel a bit out of place but I do like how the hair strands go over and around it. I really love how you've done the skull part and her eye!

:iconcaughtinthehurricane:
thankyou! :)
i see what you mean about the crown, when drawing it i wasnt quite sure how to make it look like part of the drawing... ill work on it though:)

im glad you like the eye and the skull though, they were the too parts i was struggling with when i first started.... the angle for the eye was confusing, and making a lower skull jaw look coherent with the rest of a face is ridiculous haha

Overall I think its pretty good. The only thing bothering me is the crown, it feels added on and doesn't really sit in there well, almost like an after thought. maybe if there were some cast shadows from the hair on it it would help to set it in there.
