Yesterday I finished up a new piece for my Paizo portfolio. This one features the iconic Paizo character Feiya, and her trusty fox.
During my portfolio review with Paizo Art Director Andrew Vallas at
IlluXcon, Andrew mentioned that in order to be better considered for
working with Paizo it's a good idea to show what you can do with one of
their characters. This became the main goal of this illustration, to
Showcase an iconic Paizo character. In addition I wanted to use this
piece to emphasize my love for creatures / monsters so I specifically
chose one of the characters that has an animal sidekick, as well as
choosing to have the character confronting a fearsome monster.

Above and below are a couple little details I added to help connect the monster to its environment. I wanted to illustrate that this is the creature's home, and within there are embellishments referencing the creature, perhaps out of respect, fear, or caution. Looking at the piece afterwards I could have probably pushed this idea even further in other areas as well. I might even go back after this post and tweak a couple things.

That's all for today. I'm hoping to punch out at least one more piece before I send off my portfolio to Paizo again. I hope you enjoy following me build this portfolio, it's been a lot of fun so far.
