Really fun piece to work on! Wanted to do Kamina justice since he well... you know, doesn't get to use the cool spiral powers in the series at all. Ahem.
Finally, energy and done!
Added stars to the shadows to brighten him up a bit and for texture so it won't look flat. Also, color dodge.
More shadow and background to get a better sense of lighting.
The gradients really pop with the shadows and lights in.
Love the TTGL color palette so I made sure add turquoise and purple gradients to my base colors.
