Bones of Blight by MinnaSundberg Bones of Blight by MinnaSundberg
A painting that I finished this Saturday during one of my art livestreams. Lalli in his new uniform looking at a nice, deformed mutant moose skull. Total time was about 15 hours (two livestreams + a few hours off stream), done mostly in Manga Studio with a little bit of Photoshop for polish. I'm happy with it, hope you like it too!

If you want to catch my live drawing sessions I do them on Fridays and Saturdays on twitch: www.twitch.tv/hummingfluff (comic work on Fridays, Illustration on Saturdays) You're very warmly welcome to join in!

Character is from my comic "Stand Still. Stay Silent" you can read it over at sssscomic.com

Nice!
That skull looks like it must've caused a lot of pain.

Lalli looks slightly concerned that there may be more giant infected moose out there.

I love the limited amount of shades of color, and I especially like the background with the birch trees (at least i think they're birch trees) which remind me a lot of watercolors. And that skull... *shivers* It's so cool and mysterious! Great job!

Wonderful ! The scenery and the colors are so well done, especially the birches, that I almost hear the sounds of the forest and feel the cold air. Really nice !
I love your comic ssss (one month and it will be available in swiss book shops, huzzah !) and Lalli's my favourite, two more reasons to like this painting !

In swiss book shops?! Interesting, but inwhat language, english, german, or something else? (i've never heard of this comic, but now i'm intrigued)

French ^^ In Switzerland, we have swiss-german, french, italian and romansch as official languages. We all learn one of the other official language as second language at school, and most learn english as third language.

Dude don't worry I know it way to well, I'm swiss too!=P (Razz) 
I'm in one of the worstly put language groups:( (Sad) , thank god I kinda know english.
It's so strange to be lectured about your own country, so I've now stated where I come from.
Thank you for the absolutely mind blowing information;) (Wink)

Woops, sorry ^^" I didn't understand your comment the right way... But nice to find a compatriot ^^

There isn't a german traduction, so far I know, but perhaps the english version can be have in our book shops too, I didn't try to ask my bookseller. It's worth a try !

I'm totally happy that there is a french version, I prefer french to german (german's hard), but if there was a english one it would be useful too. Somewhere inside me I hope I've confused you even more, but it'll take you two seconds to understand:) (Smile) 
I've never felt so patrioctic my entire life:D (Big Grin)

Yeah, the first volume of my comic is currently published and translated into French by a French publisher (Akileos), and I believe Switzerland is one of the countries where it'll be in bookshops (since French is one of the official languages).


The English hardcovers are only available online though, they're published by Hiveworks comics. And obviously since it's a webcomic the English version is all free to read online.

Cool! Thank you so much for telling me, I think I'll go check it out online to see how it is, and if I go anytime soon in the french speaking part (thing i'm hoping to do)I  could maybe try and check in some bookshops!
Also you don't need to tell me about the official languages (even if i appreciated it), I know too well how it works in Switzerland :/
Thank you again:D (Big Grin)

I can see why Lalli is holding a gun while walking in this forest.

The focus on the skull makes me empathize
with the character's discomfort with the environment.

Very strong message.

Sure thing, the streams are archived by twitch for two weeks, so the ones for this piece are still viewable. They're in the "videos" section of my page: www.twitch.tv/hummingfluff
