The Khert by ProudTortoise The Khert by ProudTortoise
Issa, the gods are curs. To spite them, let us sound their great unsounded.

OMFG THIS TOOK FLIPPING FOREVER AND WAS SO FUN

Hey hey, this mandala is inspired by Unsounded's khert: a sort of afterlife, memory repository, underlying fabric of reality, prison and otherworld. Go read Unsounded, seriously. www.unsoundedcomic.com/ And then join Settetania !


This is one picture that I did in my free time rather than between meaningful activities. I was listening to podcasts for part of the time I was drawing it so I can say it took well over five hours. Between 7 and 10 hours or so, in total.

Oh, and there's a WIP scan fav.me/d7d9uyp

Ooh nice. I love the little bat figures, the skeletons etc. Nice gear-like grouping too. also yay unsounded
Well, if you'd like some ideas for future patterns, in order to look really impressive to the eye it's all about precision (and of course detail, but you seem to have that down c; ) so, just making sure your curves are smooth and lines are straight, as well as making intentional decisions about all of those little details to make it all look as cool as possible, including considering what colours will look good overall. Just about being even more careful and detailed, and using crisp and high contrast patterns to make it all pop on the white background :nod: good job!

This turned out phenomenal, PT! So much detail, it really does echo the fractal busyness of the khert! It looks like a design you could fall into and explore on foot~~ Well done :)
