So in case anyone was unclear on why I was studying random disembodied parts of -real- humans, it's to get better at painting -imaginary- humans
Pretty pleased with progress so far, but there's still so much left to learn!
I did a small series on borked fantasy tropes at one point. Here is the first one.
"The reverse mermaid tries to warn sailors away from dangerous rocky shores, but alas, the sailors are compelled to sail closer by the reverse mermaid's supple legs"
Working through more Framed Ink comps by slotting in my own or historical characters into 'establishing shot' compositions - this one is for a sense of composure/stability/power
Holy Roman Emperor Otto of Brunswick (early 12th c) here is a bit anachronistic because I referenced a 15th century illustration⠀
Studying a Framed Ink composition idea. The example is a character who is 'visually strangled', and the concept is to slot in props and setting according to a layout that is, at first, an abstract shape
I tried this out on poor, beleaguered Lebeau
A demon design I'm doodling for #warlockd, based on a 13th century illustration of bees, courtesy of discardingimages (BnF, Latin 6838B, fol. 29r). Trying to decide if these little guys (and there will be a lot of them) have mouths or not

Art posts will resume next week (March 25th). I have to muddle through a new contract and the post-convention blues this week.
Thank you for following. My energy and passion for Warlock'd is renewed from all the amazing people I met over the weekend!
(I tabled at ECCC, btw -- Would have posted live updates here but does Mastodon have a phone app?)
Happy #warlockdwednesday! If you're going to #ECCC and want to visit an artist who will chat your ear off about 12th century worldbuilding (surprise: it's me), now is your chance. I have zines, prints, blind boxes, and bone charms.

A portrait of a night elf for
KairyneKai, one of the winners of my portrait giveaway on birdsite! I wanted to capture the mirth + malice aspect that I enjoy about the Kal'dorei. Nature is beautiful and joyous, but also dangerous.

Illustrator. Lettering, too!
