Finished comic story is here:

Just the first rough.
I began preparing my next Assassin's Creed Revelations comic.
I tried to design a piece of Arabic calligraphy for my beloved Yusuf in this story.
What a pity I don't understand Arabic and don't have much time to learn it. So I just translated his name YUSUF TAZIM DA ISTANBUL with google translator.
يوسف تنظيم دا اسطنبول
Then I bought a book to learn a bit of Diwani style, which developed during the reign of the early Ottoman Turks (16th and early 17th centuries).
So this is it. What a novice I am, and I need critiques and suggestions.
Could you help me? XDD

Your Cross
October 13th 2012
Ink watercolors


Then He said to them:“If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed and lost?"(Luke 9:23-25)


Several months ago, my sister requested me to do a calligraphy piece for her, but as she kept going back and forth on what she wanted me to do, I only somewhat recently got this particular request. She wanted me to do a calligraphy piece of Saint Francis de Sales' "Your Cross." Hopefully the letters are clear enough to read, so I won't type it all out down here. In any case, for whatever reason, this one took me awhile to getting around to do, (hence the comic to kick me back in art-gear). But here it is! I have another calligraphy commission to do, but I'm still working on the layout for that one. In any case, hopefully I'll be cranking out some more pieces for you all. :D

FAITHFUL Cross! Above all other,
one and only noble Tree!
None in foliage, none in blossom,
none in fruit thy peers may be;
sweetest wood and sweetest iron!
Sweetest Weight is hung on thee!

~ Venantius Fortunatus ([link])

I made this for the garb challenge being held at Atlantian Fall Coronation this year (2013). It was sooo much fun to plan out and so aggravatingly time-consuming to complete. It's covered in heroes and villains, of course, which was the theme of the challenge (I went as 14th century Poison Ivy). It's done with gouache on perg, and is based off of the Neville of Hornby Hours (mid 14th century), with the miniature being based off of folio 190 - the Siege of Jerusalem.

It can be seen here: www.bl.uk/catalogues/illuminat…

The wording for the award scrolls was written by Etienne le Mons, aka deaus.deviantart.com/


It was a good time. Name that super hero/villain!

Woooo! I do like the garb challenges.

Tobiah's Prayer:
Tobit 8:5-7

December 31st 2012
Watercolor and ink


Here's the last picture of the Year 2012! This is a rather late Christmas present for my mom and dad (commissioned by my dad) that I just finished an hour or so ago. This passage comes from the Book of Tobit (particularly Tobit 8:5-7), where Tobiah and Sarah are praying together before their wedding night. This was one of the readings in my parents' wedding, so it's a very special passage for them. :aww:

This one is also in a Gothic illumination style. The three little illustrations on the side all have to do with the theme of marriage. The first one is of a young married couple being blessed by the holy Trinity. The second is of Christ on the cross when His side (and heart) were pierced, and flowing out in the Blood and Water is the Church, Christ's Bride. :) The third and bottom one is of an older married couple receiving their crowns of glory for their faithfulness from the hands of Christ.

Anyways, enjoy, God bless and have a Happy New Year! :glomp: :hug:
