Traditional Art – Cleaning Glory

Watermark'd

It was a rare morning at home, resting with his scattered flower bushes and daughter resting in bed. He enjoyed days like these, alone with his Glory.

This was going to be a watercolour piece (as usual!), but I realized I should practice more with it. My watercolour work is usually a muddy mess, so I need to practice it so it doesn’t look horrid. Goal for 2018? Who knows!

With this drawing though – and the last Copic drawing I did – is that I need to find a way to blend and add other interesting shading to do it. Cuán himself turned good…Until I did his pants, which didn’t gave that light purple-shading I wanted. Again, more practice!

Cuán is from my webcomic Dragon Age: ECHO!!

Materials Used: Lavender Copic Multiliners, Copic Markers,
Primsacolor Markers, and a Uni-ball Signo White pen.

Traditional Art – Casual Conversation

Watermark'd

Akina and The Warden, Krutis Amell. Why haven’t ya’ll seen many drawings of Krutis…? Well, he’s usually appearing in the comic more so than illustrations, so if you want to see more of him – go to Dragon Age: ECHO‘s site.

One thing I love about Krutis and Akina, they have a mostly-green clothing/colour palette with warmer skin + hair colours. I have no idea why that’s so fascinating to me, but it just is. It doesn’t help that Brutus has mostly a blue colour scheme and Cuán mostly has a red scheme…

Materials Used: Sepia Copic Multiliners, Copic Markers,
Primsacolor Markers, and a Uni-ball Signo White pen.

Traditional Art – A Peaceful Afternoon

I…Just wanted to draw Akina with a bundle of flowers. Honestly, I can see her gathering all of these flowers up, just to throw them onto Brutus below. She likes to bother him in those ways. 💗

This was honestly just a break between inking comic pages.

Traditional Art – Spell Bonded Twins

Watermark'd

For some immense reason, between working on comic pages, I wanted to draw Snow + Rose…And spend roughly four days or so spacing out the whole process.

Originally, I wanted to use watercolours for this – but I realized far too late that my desk is forever at an angle. Like, even if I wanted to flatten it down to use it as a regular desk I wouldn’t be able too. So, I guess watercolours are just going to be a touch-and-go thing for me – not quite meant for ‘serious’ illustrations, but yet something I still want too do…

Traditional Art – Late Studies

 

Watermark'd

Niththal is the type who’ll site through piles and piles of books just to satisfy an annoying need to learn (Read: A spirit who partly posses him) – so this sort of scene is common to find him in.

For some reason I can’t figure out how to edit this drawing to look like how it does in person. In person, Niththal’s hair is duller + darker, along with his robes. But for some reason, I can’t edit this to look like how it does.

If anyone has any tips on how to edit your illustrations and drawings to look like how they do in person…Please let me know.

Materials Used: Warm Grey Copic Multiliners, Stabilo Fineliners, Copic Markers, Primacolor Markers, and a Uni-ball Signo White pen.

Traditional Art – Solace

Uh…Cuán, I don’t think Autumn is a good person to get comfort from – she’s up to no good, honestly. In fact, I think she’s the last person you should go too — maybe go to your commander.

This was originally going to be a watercolour painting, but…Well, take a look at what me using masking fluid for the first time looks like:

Traditional Art – From the Dark

Watermark'd

Once in a while, I use the good old “100 Theme” Challenge for prompts. That’s where my Purple Flowers’ illustration came from as well. For those who weren’t around in deviantART from the years 2008 to like 2010, the 100 Theme Challenge is basically a list of 100 prompts that you choose from. Normally, people do it in order, but I like to use a random number generator and get a number that way – more fun, way more random.

The prompt from this challenge that I got was “Dark” – which I drew up two concepts I really like from. I’ll get around to the second concept in a little bit.

In this illustration, I have Brutus and two one off-characters I drew once-upon-a-time, the elf and cleric unknown of the rouge hidden behind the trees….Or are they unaware? For all we know, the elf could very well know that Brutus is hidden, and is secretly wishing for his rescue!

Materials Used: Mircon Multiliners, Copic Markers, Primacolor Markers,
Winsor and Newton Pro Markers, and a Sakura White Gelly Roll.

Traditional Art – A Rose named Geoffrey

watermarkd001

Rose was a name he didn’t choose.
Rose was a name that was bittersweet – a name that refereed to a child and his sister,
The two who played daily, those who cared less about the world –
Not a bitter man, leading his men to die
For his selfish needs.

Supplies Used: Sakura Mircon Pens, Copic Sepia  MultiLiners, Copic Markers,
Sakura White Gelly Roll, and Stratmore 400 Series Bristol.
