Digital painting step by step X-men Dark Phoenix

Digital painting step by step X-men Dark Phoenix. This is a digital painting process continue from part one, painting Marvel character Dark Phoenix. It took me another 4-5 hours to come to the conclusion of the final image of Jean Grey as Dark Phoenix. I prefer to leave brush strokes on the painting because it looks more like a traditional painting in some way. Or I could say, I really like the sketchy loose style look rather than tight finished painting. There is something about the look of unfinished that I really love. So most of my painting always look sort of unfinished even though I called it done.
Most of the time, I felt like I want to stop at some point because I might have gone too far. This one almost fall into that category, there are some element I like and there are some element that I still cannot nail it into my liking. So it was partially successful.

About Dark Phoenix, Jean Grey would undergo a significant transformation from the X-Men's weakest member to one of its most powerful in the Uncanny X-Men extended storyline "The Phoenix Saga". In an attempt to save her fellow X-Men by piloting their damaged shuttle back to earth, Jean is exposed to fatal levels of radiation. Dying, but determined to save Scott and her friends, Jean's love pushes her to reach her full potential as a psychic, becoming a being of pure thought. The ship lands in the Jamaica bay, with the other X-Men unharmed. She then reforms her body and reemerges in a new green and gold costume and adopts the new codename Phoenix, now having gained immense powers. This new identity and her immense abilities became the focus of another extended storyline, "The Dark Phoenix Saga", in which Jean becomes overwhelmed and corrupted by her god-like powers and transforms into a force of total destruction, now called "Dark Phoenix", consuming a star, inadvertently killing the inhabitants of the star's solar system, and jeopardizing the entire universe. The storyline ends in Jean Grey's suicide, in a moment of regained control, to ensure the universe's safety.
