THE WEIGHT by CyprinusFox THE WEIGHT by CyprinusFox
And my second finished illustration this year! It feels soooo good to finish a "big picture", I missed this so much last year ;_;

Anyways, I started this during a watercolour demonstration and I'm happy I somehow managed to finish it so quickly after, because if everything goes well I can take prints of this to the MCC in Leipzig! My booth no. is MK 431, and I'll be there together with derylbraun ~ come and say hi to us if you have the time, I'm already really excited!

I've been wanting to draw a proper picture of my OC Ortwin for a while now. The sketch was spontaneous and so it came out different than what I had planned first, but in the end it fits so well and everything came together like it should. I also noticed I tend to draw Ort frontal like this, but it somehow fits him ~ I didn't work on the bottom part so much because I wanted to have it kind of fade into the background. I like how it came out, and I'm beginning to have more and more fun with my illustrations, everything is so exciting! Of course there are a lot of things to do better next time, but I feel like I'm going in a direction where I'm discovering what I really want my stuff to look like.

Pencil, coloured Pencil, watercolours and Dr. Martins Pen White all done on Arches hot pressed paper

Haw, ich freu mich schon! X3
Echt toll, Shu, und diese Windungen! Im thumb sahs n bissl aus wie Gedärme ;) Aber toll, so schimmernd irgendwie. Awesome sind diese kleinen Flügelchen oder Flossen, wirken wie transparent draufgeklebt v@ Und Ort.. wenn ich ihn sehe, will ich mehr Story wissen und so gern den Comic lesen *~* Die Schuppen an seinem Gewand sind auch sehr toll. Hach!

Ich mich auch!
Danke dir! Ja, ich find auch, dass es wie Gedärme aussieht XD Stört mich überhaupt nicht, es spricht so ein bissl meine makabere Seite an, deshalb find ichs im Gegenteil sogar ganz nett. Hab mich aber gefragt, ob manche Betrachter das vielleicht etwas eklig finden XD
Zu den Flügelchen/Flossen kann ichd ann mal was erzählen (:
Auf jeden Fall freue ich mich wie immer ganz ganz doll, dass es dir gefällt ;3;

Looks amazing!  I've been looking more at illustration work this year, stuff that inspires and teaches me, and it's really encouraging to see an awesome piece like this which has also been done with traditional media!  Most illustrations I love seem to be digital, but traditional media is what I love using.  What size is this painting?  I've never tried hot press paper before but it seems to have given you some wonderful smooth gradients in the watercolor.  Your decision to leave the bottom less worked to allow it to fade was an EXCELLENT decision, also.  It gives the whole image a mysterious quality.  Keep up the good work!

Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm glad you like this work so much, I'm always striving to perfect my traditional techniques. The size is about A4 ~
I can only recommend hot press paper! The one I use not only enables those gradients but also gives the possibility to paint a lot of layers, or lets say, I don't get as much problems when I decide to paint yet another layer. It's a real pleasure to work with.

Es ist wirklich sichtbar, dass du Spass an diesem Bild hattest. Die Verteilung der Values passt super zum TItel und die Ausführung ist dir generell auch sehr gut gelungen. Der Glow über den Händen ist meines Erachtens das kleine Highlight im wahrsten Sinne. Sieht schon fast CG-like aus. Great Job.
