A colored pencil piece I finished just yesterday that I cranked out in only a few days. Completely unplanned, the image and inspiration just...appeared in my head and I had to do it. I really wanted to realize this, since it meant trying to tackle some very challenging color effects (the major reason I acted on the idea in the first place). It's...icy, and in the middle of triple digit summer weather I really don't need any additional impetus, do I? It makes for a solid addition to my portfolio, and proves to myself that I'm not entirely bad with this medium.
Done with Derwent Coloursoft color pencils and chalk pastel dustings on dark pastel paper. 8.5''x11''. Another one of those blasted character couples of mine and . Vodynith ( https://www.weasyl.com/submission/225379/character-concept-vodynith ) is his, and the lady Delphnatica (new-ish character that has been developing from a dream over the past couple months) is mine.
