Birthright by coffinberry Birthright by coffinberry
*Copied and pasted from the scrap version*

omg omg omg

I found a treasure trove of art from my olden days of highschool. Sketchbooks of unfinished work. So I covered the old pencil lines with Coffinberry Purple and decided to finish some after... 7 years of sitting in the dust.

Explain: I was in about 10th grade when I started drawing seriously again. I had two little characters: Brooker and Lilwen. I am desperately searching for the first picture I did of those two. It's framed somewhere. I hope I didn't lose it.

Anyways, Brooker and Lilwen are from an old old story that I was working on. They are from a time long before that of Max and Eve. (ripped out these parts for safe-keeping) The dude up there is Brooker after being returned to his people the Dierks. He had grown up among the Mirths who were the Dierks enemies. This was a very fantasy type world that they lived in. There were large oversized rabbit people called the Akselerot. The Mirths rode on them :3

Yes, three stories. One two three. Story one is about the creation of the gods (there were none... my gods are similar to ancient Greece's). Story two is about the gods themselves. Story three (Fallen) is about the destruction of the gods. gfjasklfjdsfla I would totally work on the other stories but I simply don't have time. Fallen is just the one that stuck with me for awhile.

*sigh* Maybe I'll start writing the other two again.

I know it's an oldie, but the darkness of this pic is just beautiful! The shadows and red tint really help with the atmosphere as well. After reading the description the story really intrigued me, and now I hope to see those giant rabbits sometime! :3

Lots and lots of the wet media brushes in photoshop. And a basic understanding of how real watercolors work helps a lot too.

OOOH =D back to the dark, evil sort of coloring. This one stood out among everything else you threw at us (us because there are others aside from me who watch you) for your trademark dark lighting and shades of blood red and violet. SO AWESOME.

redoing old pieces is really fun and it's also good exercise for the old skills. bust out those old drawings and get to work!

The original sketch before I went over it with darker pencil was drawn at... 15 or 16. I used to work traditional watercolor skillz like mad. I found older watercolor pictures I will post later.
