Toccata 2 Cover by shilin Toccata 2 Cover by shilin
Cover for my 2nd art book Toccata 2, it's supposed to match Toccata 1's cover, but the way I draw/paint changed a lot so there's not much of a match beyond composition XD I spent an eternity on this picture because I was forced to stop working on it multiple times for months at a time, it was really frustrating and disconnected me a lot from the original sketch that I was happy with ): better luck next time!

Even though I haven't read Carciphona yet (and I really want to ; o ; ), Blackbird has to be my favorite character in the series! :heart:
You drew her beautifully, and well as badass with her pose and the cloth she is holding with her teeth, and with that little smirk she has on.
I envy how you draw so much; I really wish I could be like you and my other idols someday ; u ;

It's a really beautiful illustration of Blackbird! :love: But I understand, when you're sketching something and you love the sketch, but when you finalize it and 'ink it in' so to say, you're not satisfied with it.
Sometimes I just leave sketches as sketches, because I like the look so much and I don't want to distort it.

I had to do something in parts once and it's aggravating. It's very hard to get back to that mood and feeling you were in when you started it. But this still came out great.

Black Bird is just awesome. I wonder if she's a Carciphona too, like Veloce, or just has Carciphona infected arm...
