Angel by drachenmagier Angel by drachenmagier
Initial drawing - again - drawn on the way to work. Then I got bored at home and started to add swirls and details. And it was too fun to stop, so I did just that for quite a while. d:

Drawn while listening to either Loreena McKennit and Stolen Child [link]
Or Stargazers from Nightwish [link]

I will NEVER again draw such things on office paper though. It was painfully hard to scan! Next time: Better paper again!

Critiques always appreciated! :D
Traditional Media, A4, mostly pencils and white ink, some fineliners and a bit of gray marker I had at hand.

This actually reminds me of a character I made up a long time ago.  She lives in a society designed after African tribes (while I was fascinated with the 'becoming a member of society' tattoos I saw on tv), and she was in the process of getting gold ones across her arms and face when she was accepted into a foreigner group of griffin-riders and left when they were only half done.  So she has one arm and half her face covered in swirls and patterns.

The tribe tattoos are quite fascinating. I saw some documentation about those once and while some of them were rather strange in our eyes, they were nothing short of interesting to study. :D And some look quite beautiful too.

Yeah, the tattoos as an idea for being named an official part of the group/tribe/society bit always intrigued me.  I'll add it in to a story someday, but yah.  :3  I really like this design of yours!

Those lines are beautiful and the gray/white it's awesome. It makes it better without a bunch of colors specially with those lines as I mentioned.

Nun, Talent macht wenig aus, denke ich. d: Eher die Übung. Ich selber habe auch noch vieles, was ich nicht kann. :D Das kommt noch~.
