Mini Painting - Mask of the Traitor



3x3 inches, watercolor and color pencil on canvas.

Had fun painting this last minute tonight for the ArtOrder's "Tiny Pleasures" challenge!  I experimented with using color pencil on top of the watercolor on a canvas primed with watercolor ground.  Can you believe that it's been TWO WHOLE YEARS since I've done anything with color pencils?!?  I was glad to have the excuse to play with them again!

A little story behind this guy for the curious.  Loke here was an elite fairy hunting badass until he found himself ensorceled by his captured prey, Red Eclipse.  In her, he found a sadistic sort of soulmate, which was just the strand of 'weakness' needed to bind him to the fae.  Though he wears the mask and moonlight tattoos of the other fae, he'll always be a magically bound servant to the forest and a traitor to his Elven kin.  You can read more about this guy and the others in his merry Elven band at Song-of-Exile.
