Sorry for the lack of updates people, I've been dealing with many things lately (two bands, two jobs and all my ratties are dying from old age so I've not been painting very much...)
I've been way more active on my photo account
as photos didn't require as much time as painting (and to be honest, I didn't feel like painting as I had many illustration jobs to do and didn't feel like painting personal things once I stopped working on these illustrations...)Associated Wallpaper here :
Tempestarii are mythological beings which modify weather, weather-makers to sum it up.
I had this image in mind the day before yesterday and absolutely had to paint it, I don't know why
The winged fish are meant to symbolize both air (wind) and water (rain) while the blue God with red hair also symbolizes water and fire (lightning). I added him horns as these are quite common on pagan deities (and I must admit I love to paint ram horns, these are quite fun to do).
I wanted to paint something a bit similar to my "Nimue" painting, both abstract and realistic in some parts. This has been one of the paintings I had the most fun to create
I hope you will like it aswell

6 or 7 hours
no reference used for the Tempestari (except for my hand with a very crappy Photobooth shot)
I also googled some images of Betta Splendens fish but didn't really look at them and the winged fish ended looking quite different.
Comments and critiques are very welcome, thanks a lot for viewing !
Here is an animated WIP for the ones who are interested on how it looks : [link]
