Watercolour, acryla gouache and Photoshop, 13x18"
I'm embarking on a new series of illustrations based around a world filled with titans, both elemental and physical. This sea god roams the oceans in search of his kind, indifferent to the many ships that run aground his rocky head. Some humans follow in the giant's wake, diving deep in search of the treasures left in those watery hulls.
This piece is based on the likeness of my beloved boyfriend, who I've always thought looked like a perfect sea god. I've spent much of the past year working on art that fits another person's aesthetic, but getting to finally work on a personal piece I could have fun with was really refreshing.
If you're interested in seeing the process of this piece, you can find it on my Patreon. I put up a blog post, WIP photos, a time-lapse video and a voiceover that explains my process.
