Kuro-E by marendins Kuro-E by marendins
Colour illustration for the Spanish Artbook Kuro-E. There's a B/W one, too, that I'll keep out the net at least for now.

It's been an honor to be part of such a great project; there are a lot of amazing Spanish artists in there, and they are people who I've looked up to since a long time. I recommend having a look at the complete information about it: [link]? ^^

Ilustración a color para el Artbook de artistas españoles Kuro-E. Hay otra en B/N que no subiré por el momento.

Ha sido un verdadero honor formar parte de semejante proyecto; los participantes son artistas de gran calidad, muchos de los cuales han sido y son una referencia para mí. Recomiendo dar un vistazo a la información general sobre el Artbook, aquí: [link]? ^^

a glowing brazier glowing in the dark
as a thief liberates his mark
two faces similar, yet so far apart
yet both reader and thied a master of his art

The orb exudes a light from within

The thief hardly knows his own daring

He turns back to look behind

Sees a guardian glaring

a guardian exclaims her rage
a daughter watching her good friend
a thief escaping to steal in another age
a young man with a story to lend

Well, all the text in the "artists comments" section has an English version, as well. The artbook is no longer available, but it was printed bilingual, with both English and Spanish ^^

Beautiful artwork! I really like how the two scenes blend together, as well as the illustration style. Who are the characters? Are they original, or are they from a show? Which show? What's the orb pendant for? It reminds me of the Heart of Candracar from the W.I.T.C.H. series. 
Anyway, nicely done! :clap:

:iconmarendins:
marendins Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014
Thanks a lot!

They're original characters, specially created for the artbook. The truth is that they have but a small story behind them. The orb pendant is a stolen star. I don't know what the thief wants to do with it, though ;P

I read WITCH! And I loved it soooooo much (and still do!). I wouldn't find it surprising if there was a connection to that, even if it wasn't my original intention ^^
