My second Copic test. I still have to get used to the flow of them. I just love colouring with markers as the colours are always so vivid and covering big areas.

Another picture of my spirit, this time just simply standing around. I wanted to draw a full body picture of him in a while. Note that the neck is supposed to be that long as he can stretch his body as far as he likes to. I once "mentioned" that on his first character sheet: [link]
I plan to do a new one soon when I have more time. ^^

For this picture, I used five greens and two blues.
It's really quite hard to shade so many leaves at once. XD

A4 Bristol, Copic Markers and Micron pen, no reference used.

OMG! :faint: Thank you so much for all the comments and favourites! I feel so happy and appreciated that you like the spirit so much. :heart:

I think this drawing is cool since it is part wolf and part tree. Great job!

I hear so much about Copic markers, and I'm so curious about them ... like, do they FEEL different from regular markers when one draws with them, or what?

Oh, and yeah... that image... it's beautiful!  Er, wait, it's kinda creepy!  But it's ooooh lovely!  Yeah .... I guess I just wouldn't want it in my bedroom.  Fabulous.

I see that you've drawn this character more than once but this is the first time I've laid eyes on him and I just wanted to say that the details are unspeakably stunning. I honestly don't know where to begin with this fellow here. First off, the foliage is so lively looking that it's almost as if I could reach into the screen and feel the thick leaves and mossy-ness, the vines entwined within the fur seem more like veins coursing through the creature's body, which makes the character feel more fluid and alive. Secondly, I saw in the description that no reference was used, and I must say (as someone who's pretty familiar with basic canine anatomy) I almost find this hard to believe - while you can tell this was drawn from scratch, the pose and overall proportions appear strikingly accurate. Sorry for the mini-critique but I can't help myself when it comes to pieces like this, some artists deserve a personal pat on the back.

TL;DR Impressive design and equally impressive artwork!
