Fire Sprites | Digital Painting by Raederle

Fire Sprites

by Raederle Phoenix

In 2007 I drew (with a basic #2 mechanical pencil) a picture of three fire sprites collecting wood. The drawing was originally designed for the board game.

In 2008 or 2009 I decided to paint the drawing. I was fairly new to digital painting so I was easily pleased with the result. Now, however, I notice the low resolution.
Tip: Always use 300dpi resolution

The Original Digital Painting, 2008-2009
Tip: Always paint on a canvas (within your digital painting program) that is at least 8.5 inches wide and 11 inches tall. I aim for at least 15 by 15 inches, usually using 18 inches by 20 inches lately. The larger your image, the more things you can use it for in the future. Also, it makes it easier to work on the small details of your artwork.
In 2009 or 2010 I decided to refurbish the artwork yet again. Here is the current creation:

It is my pleasure to bring you this ad-free, completely authentic and original website. This entire site is a one-woman operation. I, Raederle, do the HTML coding, the writing, the photography, the artwork and more. Then you come along, view my work and make it all worth while.
Except that sometimes your viewership isn't enough. Sometimes a gal has got to get paid. So now I've set it up so that you can contribute a small monthly sum (as little as $1 a month) in exchange for getting exclusive, exciting, bonus content from me.
Patrons give me something priceless for a small price-tag: appreciation. Ever heard of the five love languages? It took me a while to realize this, but there is a different form of "gifts" as a love language, and it is called financial support. That's right – it makes me feel loved. I hope that isn't too much honesty for you, because my patrons read more personal admissions from me than that!
