Fashionable Lady Italy (and her pups)
Over on Menewsha, I’ve challenged artists to take a map of a country, city, state; etc and treat it like a shape challenge to make a character or characters (human or animal).
I took up the challenge of Italy, so here we have an Art Deco and Art Nouveau influenced lady with her terriers. The pattern on her coat was directly influenced by a pendant by René Lalique.
Another piece for Seito - this time one of the more villainous of her characters, Kyden. He was a lot of fun!
I learned some interesting things about markers trying the shading. Unfortunately, I lost many of the highlights (they just look white, rather than pale yellow).
Oh, and PS: I used this photo as reference for the pose.
Nature Spirit Rune
Older sketches of my character Rune as a nature spirit. Found them the other day and realized I’ve never scanned them. As his internal nature is mostly water with a bit of plant (so willows, water lilies; etc listen to him just as well as fish and frogs), his outfit colors are along those lines. His hair, iirc, is pale, new-leaf green rather than its usual pale yellow.
"Egyptian" Ryuutama: Healer
And here is a male Healer type! (Or possibly a Noble or poet-Minstrel?)
Thanks once again to my lovely patrons at Patreon for bringing this project to everyone!
Mein/Iro’s character, Luitger! He’s a semi-steampunkish magic/tech engineer. I didn’t mean to make his shirt yellow, but it ended up working regardless.
Really happy with his hair (which is possibly too long now that I look at the reference again D: ) and his blue-hazel eyes. :3
Kaou of the Peonies
Another piece I did for Seito, this time of the Empress’s right hand woman, Kaou. The colors are much nicer in person, but I did get it about as close as I think I’m likely to.
Look! I learned to draw peonies!
Dystopia, on Menewsha, wanted another phoenix from me and this time suggested something akin to an illuminated style, having seen I’ve done similar pieces before.
Elder Wizard (or Noble)
I don’t draw older people very often. This gentleman is me working to change that.
Thanks, as always, to my Patrons at Patreon. <3
Art for Maria-Minamino (on Menewsha, of course)! This fierce one-winged angel is fighting to return to heaven.
I do not even want to admit to how long I spent trying to get her coat and hair to cooperate. But I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. :3
I am in severe need of red markers. I did the red with a NeoPiko marker and a red Sharpie. Someone go on a spending spree on Amazon using this link so I can buy myself some nice red markers. xD
