FINALLY! :boogie:

I finally got a new scanner so here are my first few attempts at art with my new markers.

This is a totally new media for me and a totally different style.

:iconphillewis: Phil Lewis is definitely my inspiration for this new style. Thanks for your advice Phil.

Please let me know what you think.

Isn't Beltaine an event where pagans carouse and couple? Lol. Or am I thinking of another one?
MerlynHawk's avatar
No, you're right. Beltane is a time of fecundity, fruitfulness and fertility, and coupling at that festival was thought to bring fertility to the crops and food animals as well.

hmm i have never heard of them. i am personally a fan of Copic
MerlynHawk's avatar
Copic were very expensive and I had never tried markers before so I wanted to start with something a little more affordable.

I like them quite well actually.

Thank you, this was one of my first pieces with my new markers and I was trying get the same kind of feel and style as one of my favourite artists, Phil Lewis.
