Collab: Zenobia by asa-bryndis Collab: Zenobia by asa-bryndis
Here's my part of the collaboration with *plt25 that I was talking about in my latest journal.

This is Zenobia, the queen of the Palmyrian empire in modern Syria in the third century. She kicked some major butt, by all means read more about her, she's a very interesting and colourful character!

I had so much fun colouring her and it was both challenging and different to colour somebody else's work. It makes me even more of a perfectionist, because I don't want to screw up the pretty original! This did take me much longer than I intended, both because I'm a slow worker and also because the art academy decided to eliminate 95% of my free time :bucktooth:

The original can be found in :iconplt25:'s gallery, check it out here: [link] His whole gallery is full of gems like that!

His part of the collab can be found in here, but he inked my Thor sketch beautifully.

She has a nice outfit. I also dig how similar her hairstyle looks to Jasmine from Aladdin (unless that was unintentional).

Thank you! I'm sure any similarity to Jasmine was unintentional, but as I only coloured the image, you'd need to ask the creator of the inked artwork--his name is in the description.

Thank you! It's an older piece so it's not exactly the best example of my abilities, but I'm glad you like it.
