Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn

Acrylic on 15" x 20" Illustration Board

Artwork by Rob Schamberger, painted in 2023

 For this Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn painting, I thought it’d be interesting to really lean into what I could do stylistically with a fire theme. I did a tonal underpainting with black, white and grey, then went over it with yellow, orange and red acrylic paint thinned out with glazing medium. This kept the energy of the underpainting while bringing in those lush fire-inspired colors. I then added some white highlights and some violet to give it some rich shadows, and finished it with some floating embers to give a sense of depth and movement.

Fyre and Dawn are both new to the scene in WWE but I feel like they’re going to be a force to be reckoned with for years to come. This is my first painting of them, but I’m sure it’s far from the last.
