Karou by ar1anna Karou by ar1anna
“Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love.
It did not end well.”


Karou, the main character from the novel "Daughter of Smoke and Bone" by Laini Taylor (which is one of my very favorite books in the world, and the quote is how the story starts).

I am still playing around, learning some things, but I hope that you will enjoy it :)

I love the way you draw Karou. She has never look so innocent but refined to violence. Karou my best fave!!!:heart::fan:

Thanks. My mind keeps changing the image I have for Karou. She is sometimes innocent and sweet, other times though and strong.. a very complex character indeed. Probably that's why I love this story so much!

Love it - I'd love to know what you used to do the merge / paintifying...

I am glad you like it.
I've created it in Photoshop - all elements on different layers (hair, face, clothes, background, etc) and then some more adjustments have been done to the final composition. Not sure if this answers your question.

That's cool - I was wondering if the girl was done using Photoshop or Illustrator: she looks fabulously 'vectorised' :)
