Emma Frost - Portrait of a Queen by lilyinblue Emma Frost - Portrait of a Queen by lilyinblue
Emma Frost... The White Queen, my very favorite member of the X-Men.

I did this piece for the best reason there is: I just felt like it. I learned so, so much while working on this, which definitely makes the whole thing worth it.

Photoshop CS5.5 with a Wacom Intuos 3. 2 weeks.

---

Emma Frost and the X-Men are properties of Marvel Comics

Impressive work! Love the angle, is not very common in portraits and somehow it gives her a very "human" feel! Plus, your technique is flawless! :worship:

This is just mind-breakingly gorgeous.  She looks so conflicted, yet somehow resolute—which is pretty much Emma all over.

I'm not sure I like her as a hero, but she is a great character.

She looks a little sad.

I was hoping for that. One of the parts of her character that fascinates me the most is that despite the outward appearances she puts on, I think Emma has a lot of sadness in her. Thanks for the comment!

I bailed out of the X-men comics before her whole redemption storyline, the last I saw of Emma she was stealing Storm's body. But people in life who aren't naturally evil are often sad even at the height of their power.

This is incredibly realistic! You really are exceptional at painting in Photoshop. Your work has definitely inspired me to step up my painting game. I plan to use the tips you gave me for painting hair on my entry for Draw Me an X-Jam.
