The Orphan

Study of the Orphan Girl at the Cemetery by Eugène Delacroix; I feel in love with this painting the second I saw it in real life and wanted to study it ever since!

It was a very good time to go back to this kind of painting!

I modernised it a bit by punching up the colours and contrast and took some liberty with the anatomy. Character from Blizzard on the right as a ref for video games-like rendering.
