ARK: Mouthful of Arrows

A piece of vent art I started sketching about two weeks ago, finished linearting on Friday, and completed coloring on Sunday morning. I like how it came out, but I’ve been rather iffy about publicly sharing artwork involving my characters and stories, let alone vent art, but eh… I don’t know.

Last night, I made a progression animation GIF to post along with it. Just thought it’d be neat to show you how I work on my art! Maybe helpful? Insightful? I hope the GIF is working though, you might have to click it/view it in a new tab.

Experimental/vent piece and surrealism concept art for Arkaenalan, depicting Empy and that dragon head growth, which develops a very troubling and parasitic relationship with her. As it grows, the head whispers a lot of demeaning rebukes and disturbing commands, which drives her mind crazy sometimes. 

It argues with her and also seems to vomit plenty of blood often too.

Thanks for looking!

A nice lil’ photoset of artwork done for my lady, Jen! I haven’t showcased a couple of these in public before, so why not now on the day after her birthday?

The top image is my half of an art trade with her; she wanted Empy and Jen hanging out together on a ship, though the initial idea was much grander, but I lacked the skills to pull it off! One day, that idea will see the light!

The second is cheer-up giftart done around the beginning of the year, and she going through some really tough times. Had to let her know that I got her back. ♥

And the third was just recently finished today, a birthday gift of her characters Aine, an oak hamadryad in her autumn phase (God, I love her hair), and Dillon, a music teacher and Aine’s best friend! This was meant to be her birthday gift last year, but I never got around to completing it (I’m late for everyone’s birthday)! Jen, you are getting another gift for THIS year, m’kay? M’kay!

Love you, Jen! ♥

ARK: Wafai’s Adventure Pose

2010 / 5 / 2 

The story behind this began with Wafai and Skana having a picnic out in a garden and ended up having their food stolen by an unknown thief. Wafai decides to seek out the troublemaker, taking Skana’s butter knife with him, and goes on a bit of an Indiana Jones adventure deep in the garden where the thief happens to reside within…
