I said I was going to do redraws of my five favorite A-to-Z Entries, and damn it, I meant it.
Original sketch for my “A” entry:
And here is the finished drawing, Aldwyn & Amara:
Surprisingly happy with this one; I love the rays of light filtering down!! And the beading on her tunic!! And the highlights on Aldwyn’s wing!
I love far more about this than what I hate. I don’t even think I hate, to be honest; there are things I could have done better, but I hate none of it.
How refreshing is that??
I am working on wrapping up some stuff I started prior to A-to-Z — some of it from long before A-to-Z, to the point where it’s noticeably stylistically rougher, but I’m still fond of it, I’ve put in quite a few hours on it, and it’s a goal of mine to not abandon projects anymore, so I will likely still wrap and post it at some point.
Related to art and projects, a big project that I was an artist on recently, The Fat Folks Tarot Deck, is live for pre-orders! The art is stunning, and includes the work of 77 artists in just as many styles. This is a body-positive, fat-positive, queer-positive, trans-positive Tarot Deck, and all the proceeds go towards Trans Lifeline! Please, if you are someone who is into Tarot, consider picking up a deck! This is my piece for my card, the Nine of Pentacles:
Not that I’m complaining, to be honest.
Hope all is well. Stay safe and sane.
