I only got a tumblr where I tend to upload wips from time to time. :) Though I rarely take many photos during the creation of a drawing. Maybe 3 or 4, at max.

This is gorgeous! What an amazing wedding gift. Do you remember how the speech compared our lives to libraries? Sounds like a great comparison, I'd be curious to hear it.

I'm not quite sure about the exact things that were said anymore. But he mentioned that a life is like a growing library and - on that day - we'd join two of those libraries together.

Beautiful lines, the artwork looks so simple and yet is very impressive. Sometimes less is more. Couldn't you try to fix the golds in photoshop or any other free application? I know its bad when you scan it. Like digital to printing, it looks right on screen but it doesn't printed sometimes, and so is the case with traditional scanned on the computer. Sadly. Above all that, sweet work.

Sadly, gold will never work on scans and making it "look gold" normally ends with a fake feel to it. I tried it, but after having seen the difference I decided to either go for a fake metal effect from the start, or just leave it in the shade the scanner wants it. In a way you can still see where the gold would be, even though you can't see it shine. ^^

I know, scanning an original is just as painful as printing the digital. Specially paintings. A drawing is easy to fix but colors and values are never. Good work though.

True. But I think I got quite a good scanner with the one at my mom's place. :D I know a copyshop that could do the gold for copies, but the prices... hrk, let's not mention that again. ^^''

is this done with watercolor and felt tip marker pen? I love the texture you created <3 is the white line around the figure done with gel pen?
Reply
:icondrachenmagier:
drachenmagier Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Mostly watercolors and markers, yes. I normally don't use gel pens: I get better results when working with a quill and the inks I want (white, gold, such colors). :) And thank you!

All my friends love your work. Unfailingly, as my screensavers flash by, someone will comment on one of your pieces. You should really send your stuff into the pros man! (woman?). I don't mean just to compliment, I actually have a selfish motive in that I would like to see more of your kind of graceful and interesting style in the fantasy illustration world than the CGI-looking dweeby stuff that has sort of taken over. know what I mean? Wizards of the Coast used to have so many versatile illustrators, but recently it's all been lackluster. Hope your art takes you far, because it's far out.
Shalom

Aw, thank you! :D That's always really motivating to hear! :heart:

I'm always - at least a bit - aiming high to see how far I can go. :D Sadly it's not a business you can get in easily. But that does not mean I will give up. Heck, I got a few decades left to try, right? d:

Darn fantastic!! (although I would mirror it horizontally, since people tend to consider facing right as moving forward and left as backwards)
