Traditional Art – Day of Satinalia!

Watermark'd

Akina probably never experienced Satinalia/Feastday in it’s fullest, so I have a feeling when she gets the chance to celebrate it she’s going all out and making sure it’s a fun day for her.

Although I don’t know why she’d invite Cuán along, but it was probably out of goodness of “the Holiday Spirit” – and it was made really clear he shouldn’t…Do anything to her, on such a Holiday! Brutus, however, isn’t a Holiday person. He’s probably only doing this since the Warden (chilling dude who’s watching them) told him too. And you know you can’t say “No, f**k you” to a Warden.

Nutt is also trying to score with Autumn, which won’t work. Since Autumn is clearly meant for themself and themself alone god – no one else would please them.

Honestly though, it was a fight to figure out if I wanted to keep it like this with a few selective colours or fully colour it. Obviously, you can see which won – but it was a worthy battle! But the near-monochrome-esce colouring won it for me.

Materials Used: Sakura Mircon Multiliners,

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 – 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

Watermark'd

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:
