Mele’feren is basically a fortress surrounded by mountains on all sides, reachable only by navigating the icy ocean to its south. I’m not done with this one yet, but at this point I think I should break it up into a few posts. Here’s the first batch!
3 years after Airika and Vince are split up by the powers that be, they meet again by chance. Good thing I was there to draw what they wore to this momentous event!
I really liked his face in the sketch but had a hard time carrying whatever it was I liked about it into the painted version.
So I repainted it over…
But I added the rest of their immediate group. Here they are, the four “guildless” peeps – Tzipora, Vince, Airika, and Tren – so named for their lack of affiliation with any of their world’s important political/social factions.
A bit more work will finish this one up, but I wanted to post it because I’m falling really behind on posting and about to move house so I’ll have even less time to post in the coming days!
Nothing’s impossible. (this version by Kato Kino feat. Ayria is my favorite).
First color pass under sketch:
Merge sketch into colors and paint on top of sketch on a single layer:
Render render render render:
Airika: And what’s that group of stars called?
Vince: Uh… the Cleave.
Airika: Are you making that up?
Vince: No, I would never do such a thing.
A few hours
This piece is unique and special to me because they actually appear on the canvas how they look in my head omg. The end-of-vacation paint marathon continues. At this rate, I’ll get more painting done before February than I usually paint in a year – sweeeet.

ASTRID 2014 HAS BEGUN
It’s been over week since I last worked on Red Riding Hood, but I’m pleased with my recent progress: New things:
- Better arm pose
- Sword (NOW it feels like one of my artworks, lol)
- More progress on wolf positions (but I’m not sure they’re a complete improvement over the sketch, I think more work is needed on their arrangement before I finalize them)
