Obsidian by xlopp Obsidian by xlopp

Enjoy this improvement of Obsidian, which probably will be the first of all my Gemstones. Old one is moved to scraps :)

· Fixed the anatomy of the arms.
· Defined the shape of the wings.
· Changed hue and saturation.
· Another minor adjustments.

Thank you all for your support as this one is your most loved deviation in my gallery!! 2000 views WHOA!!!


Now you have obsidian, the second gemstone from the series I'm working on. I pretended to give some dark atmosphere with quite surreal touches, like the strange inscriptions rounding her arms and the delicated obsidian mirror that hangs from her neck. The piercings on ear, lips and navel (notice it's a snake) were an ultimate addition.
And what about wings? Well, it's cool stuff haha

Hope you like it, and don´t forget to check out my gallery in the future for more of this drawings and to discover the other gemstones if you haven't done yet!! (links down here)

I'll be back soon. By the moment, thanks for watching!! As usual, feel free to comment whatever you want.

Enjoy summertime!! ;)

Just amazing. :wow:


This concept helps bring out the best in field of wholesome surfaces & smooth flow both human physique and gemstone surface, with a warm sense of depth & gradation in colour. The near Carravagio-esque tenebrism ends up "swallowing" the black sections, it nonetheless helps the small details (such as the whites of her hair & symmetric exotic patterns on the gemstone pendant frame & the bandages around wrists) and warm skin-tone to stand out proudly, helps appreciate them as small touches of light within darkness. Definitely worth the time & remake! :star::heart::star:
