Spelunky Damsel

I really wanted to underplay the Kali Alter. It’s such fun imagery but desaturating such an eye catching part helped bring the damsel into focus. In order to keep a level of “confidence” in my work I’ve been trying to use less layers. This stage in the process the image is only divided up into 4 folders; Figure, Background, Hair, and Dress. Dress has the most layers at 3 so I’m really trying to be accountable for what i paint. As a kind of test to myself I wanted to see if I could get a “pillow lighting” effect that still seems plausible in the situation. I don’t always pass my own tests…

If you’ve never played Spelunky before please do yourself a favor and go familiarize yourself with one of the most greatly crafted games of our time. Derek Yu (and the team at Mossmouth for the updated version) did an amazing job. Fair warning it’s not for the casual player.
