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 – An Annoyance in Training

Watermark'd.png

Oh Brutus, even when you were a teenager, you needed to deal with “annoying” people – more so your own sister, who wanted to see how far you’d go in training with a “loud, pesky companion who won’t leave you alone in battle!”. 😆

Who knew how on-the-ball she’d be about your life-long companions, eh? It’s like she could predict the future or something, who knows.

Anyway, I apologize for if this looks a bit off on your screens everyone, you can trust me in that it looks better in person. I’m just having issues in editing my traditional drawings again into looking like how they do in person and now how off they look on screen.

A good mate of mine told me there’s a certain numbers when you do your levels in your editing program that can make it look almost like how it does in person, but I have no idea how to do that as of yet!

Anyway, these two are from Dragon Age: ECHO, my fancomic I’m working on to improve on my art and worth ethic.

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!!

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…

Traditional Art – A Peaceful Afternoon

Watermark'd2

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…

Sketch – The Twins

Watermark'd.png

I’ve decided that I’m going to TRY to scan more of my sketches instead of taking photos of them with my phone like how I usually do – I dunno how long this’ll last, but hey – it might happen!

I’m mostly only scanning this since I might ruin the sketch while inking, since I have an ability to do that when I’m using the materials I’m going to use…

Materials Used: A Red Col-Erase.

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:

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.
