Spiritwalker by PhantomSeptember Spiritwalker by PhantomSeptember
"Let it be beautiful when I sing the last song,
I will give you even my body,
Spiritwalker,
Let all the children kiss the sun before they sing their last song
I will give you even my body
Spiritwalker."

- The Cult, Spiritwalker

One of the main characters from my novel. Such a friendly necromancer.

Though inspired by The Cult song, the old adage "Beware the bad cat bearing a grudge," now comes to mind.

I wanted to try a more ambitious pose and push myself more than I have. I don't want to limit myself to stuff I know I can draw. Mostly this translates into "my stuff may look a little crappier than usual for awhile as I try new things."

The suggester said:
"This artist's gallery is full of extremely beautiful and detailed--but stylized--work. This drawing in particular has staggeringly beautiful composition, and its interpretation is especially unique and intriguing." ( Suggested by InstilledPhear and Featured by rydi1689 )

Diluted acrylic paint and rubbing alcohol. You put down a layer of black wash and then, while it's still wet, splatter alcohol on it. With watercolour paint it would simply spread away, but with acrylic it spreads away and then returns and darkens the alcoholic spatters into interesting dark patterns.

Thanks! I'm kinda stunned. With my art, a DD was the last thing I thought I'd get. I'm very happy that it's a piece featuring one of my OCs, though.

You should never stop improving, in my opinion, when an artist is contempt with himself and stops wishingg for better, that's when the downfall starts.

Absolutely. Questing for improvement never ceases. If it did, I wouldn't be an artist anymore. Constantly striving for improvement is my goal. :)

Didn't you draw this? It's great!

And definitely, except I can never finish a story... I have about seven that I never finished. :( It's pretty sad.
