The sun has been up and the ceremonies are not getting done on their own. This too is a great test to patience and character.
Breathing in and breathing out, she is still waiting for cooperation as patience starts to wear thin…
With the lines and detail posts, we cheer our Shaman Apprentice as she wakes up one of the participants on the ceremonies this month. Join us in hoping that the soul of the one that slacks off will be saved once she gets her hands on them.
★We hope you enjoy your weekend and stay inspired!★
Here’s a look at our apprentice, devoting herself to be a Shaman and her timely predicament (check the detail with her troubles right here), this time you can check the whole illustration’s linework.
A digital piece, trying to summon the feeling of the lines you get when using a brush pen, with that rich full stroke without losing the possibility of making the line thinner.
Practising and giving her best at her arduous path to become a Shaman is nothing compared to keeping the ones responsible in the rituals to show up on time…
“The sun has been up for a while now, how long until you come out? It’s your turn to be part of this month’s ceremony. Get up.”
We understand, the bed is probably pulling one of those magnetic stunts and you’ve tried to get up numerous times already. But to be honest… We don’t think anyone should take the risk and make her wait any longer!
We’re revisiting the Maiden’s Pearls illustration, this time with a detail of the lines of its cascade of waves, quite fun when it came to inking how the curls turn and curve, each with it’s own twist. Also works as therapy to calm the brain!
Keeping up with sharing the inking of what lies behind the illustrations, we bring you a detail of the edited outlines for “Teaming with Beasts”.
This one didn’t have the usual inking stage since the pencil and ink lines sort of merged together in one. The pencil stage was cleaned up after the sketch, to work already as inking, resulting in rougher but also looser lines.
We’re pretty happy to share with you the lines for the illustration we did of Ladyhawke. In case you missed the final version, you can check it ►here◄.
Every now and then, we feel it’s also interesting to give a peek at the linework since it’s usually covered or merely hinted on the colouring stage.
