Originally this began from some really old photo study that had a nice posture and I just began painting on top of it. I have a bad habit of having a lot of these half-finished works because I get ideas that I want to try out, but I lose interest in finishing it after I see the results of what I was testing out.
Overall this was a mix of drawing, painting and I also used one pre-made texture to get this tapestry pattern to her skin. Kinda wanted to make it look like old tattoos covering her body.
After I got everything painted I then bashed textures on top of everything to add details and bled some darker hues a bit better. This also created a nice frame for the whole piece.
