Likewise, I lost count of the hours which went into colouring this. I spent at least two hours only applying light blue and white acrylics for various forms of water. I suck at painting rain. Certain Skálmöld songs were spinning in shameless infinite loops during that period.
Personal artwork. I‘m glad I managed to do some after failing so many times at everything except fanart (and sometimes even at that). This diptych illustrates (of course) my work-in-progress fantasy story, this time with lots of water and llama-free drama. The guy survives, though, don‘t worry (that’s not that much of a spoiler, although it may sound like one).
Music suggestions: Sæglópur by Sigur Rós. Alternatively, Elegy by Leaves’ Eyes, which was the original inspiration yeeears ago.
By the way, there’s a really hideous digital version of the right side image, dating back to 2006: www.cuiascamh.de/galerien/2006…
So I meant to redo this for quite some time now.
I used tons of very lose references, like Scandinavian coastlines. As usual.
Watercolour and acrylics.
Holy cow o.o
This is amazing artwork. You, my friend, deserve every good comment this has gotten. Very well done!
