To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up...
and it also has a Max Richter soundtrack to it: www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRPGEb… (i listened to it on repeat for 3 days flat drawing this...)
I'm sorry i chose such a depressing motif for a birthday present... and that i never drew Theodosios before throwing him in this situation... I have no excuse.
I hope you'll like it nonetheless.
done with graph'it markers and promarkers, some 15 colours in total.
Also - i'm awfully sorry i took ages to respond to your comment; i had to push deviantart further down on my list of priorities due to work, but now i'm on holiday, so i can finally do all the things i had little time to.
Cudne detale (zwłaszcza te malowania przy oknach mnie urzekły) i światło ♥
Te malowania przy oknach z kolei to była bardzo spontaniczna decyzja - uznałam że jakoś mu w tym pałacu za bidnie i jakaś dekoracja by się przydała, a że ściany już miałałam pokolorowan, zostały mi okna XD
Also, even if we don't realize it, a full page is lot of work , exactly like a full illustration, so...try to be more nice with yourself, you are an amazing artist
I love your interpretation of Theodosios' feelings here - this is exactly the mood i was going for, and you know how tricky expressions can be - one line in the wrong direction and one ends up with a completely different emotion.
Gosh, thank you SO much!!!! I will go and stare at it now!!!!!
So once again happy birthday! And i hope to see more of Theodosios in your watercolours and comics (maybe in less dire circumstances...); he is one of my favourites (you know i have a weakness for quiet plotting types).
