WickusE's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
South Africa
Greetings, and welcome! I have a painfully diverse personality and enjoy reading (literature or poetry), gaming, music (classical mostly, I play the piano and violin), and as can hopefully be deduced from my being here, I also love art. Oh, and being alive, I think I might be addicted to that...
I am currently practicing my watercolour and inking skills, but I also occasionally work in pencil or colour pencil. I mainly draw anthropomorphic animals (especially cats :3), but I try a bit of everything!
I'm generally open to requests, trades, commissions and the like, so feel free to ask if you have a question.
Thou art welcome anytime!


Testing, testing...
A bit of an update regarding Ferox in a more armoured style.
Also, my first time using gouache, and I am liking it already! I totally blame thank :iconasomberfox: for getting me to try this style out :D

This required me to effectively forget what I thought I knew about painting and experiment, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It just took about the amount of time a complete watercolour painting + the inking takes me...

Btw, do you guys think I should add a simple background to this?
Can You Say the Same?
Just a bit of personal art spawned from my pondering some things that happened to me recently.  
I don't often put my feelings into quick drawings, but I am so pleased by the expression that I am considering doing it more often.

Ferox is meant to have a very acerbic and sardonic sense of humor and he was absolutely no qualms about rubbing salt into wounds.  It has reached the point where he will sometimes deliver commentary on things I experience that make my jaw drop and think "Wow.  That's SALTY!" :XD:
Amber Mage
As children we are told that amber beads are drops of sunlight that fell to earth.  When we grow up, we are told it's merely fossilized tree sap.   Then along comes an Amber Mage and your forced to rethink your education.  But then you start thinking, "Hey, tree sap is comprised of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen atoms that the plant combined through photosynthesis.  And photosynthesis is powered by... Ooooooooooooh."

Race: Corona Guard
Role: Caster, Tank

While the Corona Guard is frighteningly effective for the most part, some situations call for something a bit more corporeal than animate sunlight.  To this end they tapped into amber veins, rivers of liquid sunlight that bathed the world when it was yet young.  Upon hearing Solendeus's self-righteous call, the amber took form and now they support the Sun's personal guard with an arsenal of defensive spells.  The unique qualities of amber allow the mages to shield their troops from damage types that would normally be devastating to the sun elementals and just about ruin everybody's day even more than it already is.
They have a long standing vendetta against paleontologists, who keep bothering them to study the insects that get stuck in them. 

Also, check it! Akarai got featured in some fan art by :iconvulpro0201:

Sorry about not responding to most or your work in the last week, been a bit busy with stuff and I wanted to give your art the proper attention they deserve so it may need some time, probably expect something from me in the next few days :D
