A Warframe fanart for Hubs to celebrate our wedding anniversary. <3 Since we don't roleplay, I have no idea what's the relationship status of our operators, but I wanted to draw something cute. Husband thought the picture was cute so mission accomplished. XD
I experimented with a couple of things with this pic. Normally I like to stick to the in game design as much as I can, but I wanted to do something a bit different this time with the Operator's clothes and accessories. The earrings are inspired by the Kavat fairy armor (Saraba Armor) though tbh I don't think Boy Operator would be happy wearing something so frilly. I've been relying on watercolor brushes in CSP, but this time it's done mostly with oil brushes though in the end the result looks the same? This is also my first serious attempt at drawing a background from the Warframe universe AND it's a freakin' night scene so double the trouble.
Background is based on my favorite spot in Cetus. I thought it was rather pretty/romantic though I could never convince other people to come check it out with me *glares at SO* Unlike the figures, the background was done completely digitally. I made an effort with the composition though I'm not sure how successful I was. Originally I planned to do a day scene, but I wanted to move away from my usual bright color palette so this became night scene (plus something about the night is more romantic, mysterious, etc). It was fun working mostly in the dark blue region of the color wheel. There are lots of details but I'm afraid they're kind of lost in the dark. Now I think I'm a bit less afraid of coloring night scenes so maybe I'll do something like this again soon (TM).
I'll post my process as well as the background without filters in tumblr later.
