Up Above the Smoking Clouds

I took a class where we approach the traditional painting skills in digital environment. We started with cubes and material study then we moved on the portraits and now we are doing figures. This is my first figure painting for that class. I first painted her by just staying close to reference and then I have added the mood, lighting and fire. I have to thank my teacher Michael Buffington for being awesome. And also Kelvin Tan and Grace Liu for the epic lighting tricks ^ ^
