I’ve always been fascinated with ancient mithology especially by those secondary characters who usually don’t get that much attention. Iris is probably one of those characters though her role is not so secondary. Messenger of the Gods, she is the personification of the rainbow and is in charge of linking humanity and Gods. So you see she is not someone you can do without. No progress shots this time. Let’s just say I improvised as I painted her.
This is the initial sketch. No, those little fluffy things didn’t last long, but I liked them enough to draw them on a separate sheet of my sketchbook so they may pop up somewhere else in the future.
