Media: Pyrography on basswood, watercolor, colored pencil.
Okami will probably always be my favorite video game ever.
This is my first piece of finished wood-burning art larger than a pendant. Despite a few issues, I'm extremely happy with how it turned out. Much like the scratchboards, one of the things I like about wood-burning is that it forces me to work with mistakes I make. In the case of this particular piece, I had to take some creative license with the rope and streamers around the guardian sapling due to a mistake I made in the burning process, so had to just run with it.
This is also my first piece where I added color to my woodburning. I started with a base wash of some watercolors, and then added detail and shading with colored pencil.
Originally, I was just going to draw Ammy, but I was watching "Too Cute" on Netflix while working on the original sketch and decided Chibiterasu needed some love, too (Even though his game made me BAWL MY EYES OUT).
The picture can't really do the actual thing justice I think. I swear with the real thing you can see all the lines and shading. I really love how this came out in the end. I love the comics so far and the Luna microseries has by far been my favorite. Second is the second of the main series. I loved how it developed Luna and what she went through as a character with the whole nightmare forces. If you have not read them, I highly suggest you do.
This image comes from Microseries #10 and the original artwork is by whose artwork is absolutely brilliant. I really wish I could be as talented as some of these people. His rendition of Luna has to be one of my favorites.
