A long overdue piece for my father on Father's Day. You will always be my daddy, and I will always be your little girl ^.^ I love you always! (my dad most resembles a gorilla in appearance and attitude, so of course it had to be gorillas).

I AM PARIAH!
From the mountain tops To the depths of the ocean Raw energy is spent in a name That is immortal
The fall from grace is never gentle. In a tail spin of chaos, The god’s ‘IM’ breaks away And he becomes but a man.
Finds him bleeding and broken. As she tends to his healing Learning comes to teach. Deeds soon follow; patriarch of godly ascendency.
Climbing this pathway the ‘IM’ is won back And the mortal is restored to immortality.
We sometimes need to break a circle in order to grow stronger to be able to reach the stars in the distance. This is a project I have thought about for a long time to collect as many ideas as possible to depict a story of a very deep character, focusing on the one and single character only. I started it some months ago and was able to complete it just these days. In time I added more ideas, read more, grew more into the story.
This is a gift for a very great friend, who supports me and who sacrifices a lot of time to listen to me and to give valuable advices. I wanted to give him something back, at least something visual because my words are by far not as strong and inspiring like his.
This is my way of appreciation. And finally, I hope I did this amazing character, Kayin, justice.
It turned out to be a collaboration with Fox Amoore since he worked on an amazing character theme to interpret the story of Kayin. In the end and due to his incredible patience this turned out a bigger project than planned.

CF: Hey, it was 2.00am. I don't know WHAT I was thinking. XD Nevertheless! Quite good fun to shade, if a bizarre design. I always think that unicorns, being wild, would be a bit more frightening and menacing than your average horse? Well, it gives me an excuse to make it more funky!
Biro, two hours. First one in a while, right? I haven't drawn a horse body-structure in forever.
Our first assignment in Illustration II this semester was to illustrate a single word, and to do it in a way so that it wasn't blatant nor achingly subtle. The word crocodiles kept cycling through my head- not as the word to illustrate, but as the subject matter- and so I chose "awkward" as my word and came up with the idea of a crocodile businessman bring home a wildebeest friend from work only to find his wife preparing exactly that for dinner.
