Pain in The Ass by dinyctis Pain in The Ass :icondinyctis:dinyctis 3,128 351 Grammar Natzee by dinyctis Grammar Natzee :icondinyctis:dinyctis 9,405 2,754


Submitted for an SCA publication, this is gouache and watercolour on Bristol board.  I had this 14th century falconer in my head, and I'm pleased as punch she ended up the way I saw her.  The peregrine is bird known within Europe within this time period, and I took a bit of liberties on the feathers in her bycocket hat (turns out the Lady Amherst's pheasant wasn't known in Europe until the 1800s - oops).

9"x12" Bristol
W&N, Holbein, and Royal Talens gouache

FineTec/Coliro gold palette
Queen Hippolyta Cosplay
Cosplay from Planet Comicon 2018.  Queen Hippolyta from Silver Age Wonder Woman.

Sewn using a lot of polyester; staff made from Worbla, foam, wood glue and paint, crown made from Worbla, belt was made of Worbla, a bit of labradorite, chain, and gold-coloured copper wire.  Earrings were made of Worbla, as was the pin on the cape.  The gauntlets were leather covered in Cricut foil.

This took about a week and a half to get put together.

Our Lady of Calontir
I'm calling this "Our Lady of Calontir," though this was really a colouring study.

Ilustrator for the original line drawing, Photoshop for the colouring and texture.  I used my Wacom Bamboo to do the majority of the work.
  • Listening to: Nickel Creek
  • Eating: breakfast
It's been a big year of travel.

On a whim, I was asked if I wanted to go visit the Middle East.

I got it cleared through work, and aside from travel woes (which may be a separate entry.  Haven't decided), it was a decent trip.  I got to see Himself and his mother.

I also got some pretty sweet photos, which have now been uploaded and are now prints.  I also got to go to the I. M. Pei-designed Museum of Islamic Art, and I'm inspired to create some SCA-period pieces inspired by the pieces I saw.
