Pencils by Eric Basaldua
Inks by Vitali Iakovlev
I got hold of the highres pencils to this one and posted a deviantart journal about getting them inked. Thiantana, JK5-inking and Vitali on D/art all had a go at them (I'm sure there were others but I haven't seen them) and so I had to choose the best out of the three.
To be frank, all 3 were pretty much a dead heat as I looked around each version of the inks from each person. (and believe me, when I have multiple copies like this I *really* study them up close to choose what I feel is the best) Everyone does various bits of a picture a different way and ultimately in this case the deciding factor was... her mouth! I liked the way he did better than the other two! :)
Doing all the ice was a bitch to do in the end. Plus balancing all the blue hues so you could still see each element. I think it came out Ok. Then there were the colour holds! I don't think there's a true black left in the entire picture! :)
