Last Breath
Used textures:
Blue grunge texture by SolStock
Texture 523 & texture 14 by Sirius-sdz
Drawn traditionally & used Photoshop
Finally finished! I’m experiencing some cramps in my hand now due to the long hours I had to spend on this. Haha.
My friend & I have finally come up with the names of our characters. My character’s name is Aazar, the Arabic for "fire" or "light". Her character’s name is Akhet, the ancient Egyptian for "flood season".
We have thought about a story in which our characters are twin priestesses, who were blessed by the moon & sun gods since birth. That’s why they also can control the elements, but also explains the strange markings on their foreheads.
Aazar has the control over fire & earth.
Akhet has the control over water & wind.
Even though they are twins, they have differing personalities & point of views regarding living your life.
Aazar takes her duty of her being a priestess extremely serious, therefore trying to protect her family as well as her friends. Whereas Akhet wants to see more of the world & experiencing its beauty, which causes her to abandon her priesthood.
That is where their conflict starts & where their journey through the world begins.
This here maybe is the alternative ending, if the conflict can’t be solved. I thought about their journey failing & getting to a rather unhappy ending a lot.
I hope you’ll enjoy this illustration. ^^

Rattmann in the Morning
Aw, isn’t he cute?
Joa, that’s him. In the early morning with his wonderfully brewed cup of coffee. I really couldn’t help myself, so I have to give the world another sketch of Doug being half naked. Oh my, I just love doing that. Haha.
He should be sexy at first, but it ended up being adorably cute. He sure looks kind of embarrassed.
Please enjoy this little sketch & have a wonderful day! :-D
(Oh, me and my brain…always conjuring these kind of things up…)

EVEN IF YOU DON’T LIKE THRIFT SHOP LISTEN TO THIS SHIT!

seriously guys, listen to this

this sounds like the background music you’d hear in a movie as the camera leads you around a bustling marketplace in the 17- or 1800s and it leads to the sight of a bunch of sailors hoisting and tossing around a bunch of packages on a ship getting ready to set sail for adventure

The Hunter
Practising to draw more detailed illustrations.
I need to do something about the very bland facial expression, but other than that I’m pretty fine with it. It’s quite fun to step out of your comfort zone now & then. I will try to do more active poses in the future plus more clothing designs.
I hope you’ll enjoy this. :-)
