Plotting around tea by Miss-Friskies
Plotting around tea
Masha belongs to Lady-Oolong

It's been a long time that I had decided to draw the character of La Damothé and the opportunity came to me when someone asked me to draw a lady with a pretty dress and a hat. Just like that. To see what I could do. I accepted the challenge (which is not especially challenging). Masha is a character that I do not know well, but the design and the idea are absolutely amazing. Despite having abandoned the straw hat that is the signature of the Southern Belle, I have kept the overall aesthetics and crinolines of the period (with a late 1860s twist) to keep my ink not accurate but at least harmonious. I used the work of the artist Harry Clarke and Kay Nielsen as general inspiration for her pose (in part) and some decorative elements (mostly the trees). It really is a drawing that was done quickly and without much precision, but I had a lot of fun doing it. I find it lacks detail, but I didn't have so much time these days (including a wedding that has occupied my w-end)

I guess everything is pretty self-explanatory ;)
Theft, Poison and Gold : perfect way of living by Miss-Friskies
Theft, Poison and Gold : perfect way of living
Tanja Aaltonen is my OC
2/8 [Rogue] [Tempest]

A drawing that I may enjoy less in the same series that I presented with the previous drawing, but I like it anyway. I like when I can see my progress (far from being perfect, but still better). Especially with Tanja's face, which matches the vision I have of her. An angular face, not very fine. (the difference in morphology with Svenja is also obvious, and this is another thing I like here). I still wish I had the time to do some researches, because in the contrary of Svenja's drawing, it does looks less fine and quite wonky. The fact that I did Svenja's drawing with a lot of references and that I did the damned drawing 4 times probably help. 

Tanja is a crook. If in my main universe, she is a character with some rigid idea of justice. If she does not have a framed society to help her, she quickly becomes someone who lives from theft (and who obviously enjoy it). Even in her profession as a lawyer, she does not hesitate to use all solutions, from her immense charisma to some vicious formulations to draw people in her side. When you leave the legal framework, you can imagine how many time it can take her to develop stratagems for a pearl necklace and a few coins. That is why there is a mini ferret beside her. It is a bit ugly (that's why research is important kids) but his family of animals (weasels, martens), are often associated with gluttony/greed (again, I could easily have put a magpie, but see the "turning into a giant canary bird" matter again)

The spec Tempest is (still in Dragon Age) a specialization that offers joyful little thieves to be more like alchemists and use these concoctions for these purposes. Tanja being smart enough for that, I found the idea interesting. I think maybe one day I'll draw this better by developing poison aspect that lacks a bit though. (Mage are easier to draw. Less chainmail and more intrigue)
On the healing virtues of thyme and bound spirits by Miss-Friskies
On the healing virtues of thyme and bound spirits
Svenja Petersen is my OC
[Mage] [Necromancer]

This drawing is part of a lengthy series that may occupy my entire month of June. In discussing the "specializations" that can be found in Rpg (here I'm going to use the Dragon Age pattern) with: devshinzhon, we found some pretty interesting aspects that fit quite well to my characters. By now you must be used to my endless fascination with Alternate Universes ;). Mostly because it allows me to draw my characters in a different way, especially with armor and dresses inspired by european Renaissance, fantasy movies/series/video games, late Middle Ages fashion, etc...  (an excuse is never bad when it's about drawing medieval fantasy!)

This may seem a little odd to begin the series with Svenja, my sweet and naive young lady with healing powers, giving her the necromancer spec. In fact, I find it rather well tuned, for some reasons that are definitely far-fetched that I do not even remember (I never said they were good :') ). Her healing power has surely some links with the spirits that dwells in the other world anyway. And invoking the dead must be surely as pleasant as eavesdropping for the latest secrets of the Empress !
The mask, the deer and thyme then. As her dress shows (I never draw enough hairnets and pearls!) she is noble, probably in a very highly codified court. And it's certainly not the simpleminded person as we would like to believe. Hence the mask. It is also a small reference to the mode of the court of Orlais,in the (quite nice) video game Dragon Age Inquisition, which is again a great excuse to procrastinate on my vacation and do a little research on Italian Renaissance. 
That said, Svenja is probably not of noble birth, his family being perhaps merchants and apothecaries rich enough and skilled enough to have the favor of the court.
Thyme is a plant that has lots of different properties, especially antiseptic. It is an herb that grows quite easily, quite useful for respiratory infections, is antifungal and can be eaten in salads (or meat if you're a meat person) ! (They are there to fill the space, as usual, but also to remind some that Svenja is above all an accomplished herbalist and healer )
The doe is a nice animal to draw, and one which I often associate with Svenja for obvious reasons (really not very original) (I would have put a bird but more of those and I was going to turn  into a canary)
(I really LOVE this drawing and I'm sure you can feel it by my comments :') )
Born under the mist by Miss-Friskies
Born under the mist
Eivør belongs to me
Ink, gel white pen

Again another ink of my landvaettir, though it used to be prettier. I have a really mischevious cat who loves to play with stuff on my desk. Sadly, a lot of the details in this drawing were lost due to my dear cat playing with what was left of my ink while I was away. Long story short, the whole criss-crossing details and flowers/thorns I spent nearly two hour on was bathed in black, non-removable ink. I tried to fix it as well as I could, but the result is quite sad. Not bad, and loyal to the character's idea, but still.... Anyway I hope you will like it. I kind of like the pattern on her dress and the way her face is drawn.

NEW : Ici le premier texte du nanowrimo ! Bonne lecture :)

Vous pouvez voir mes cartes de Noël (en fait on dirait plutôt des marque-pages, pour le format !) sur mon tumblr avec le tag julefest . J'hésite à les poster ici, d'une part parce qu'ils sont nombreux (20 par jours) et parce que ce sont juste des dessins à l'encre.
(pour ceux qui n'ont pas l'adresse, c'est ici… )

Bonjour à tous ! 

Comme vous pouvez le remarquer, je suis un gramme plus active. Ceci dit, mon activité ces mois-ci va largement être mise à l'épreuve pour deux raisons.

1. Cadeaux de Noël, qui cette année consistent en : une série de cartes pour la fête de Noël de ma section à la fac, plus celles habituelles pour la famille, et enfin vous, chers amis. Rien ne vous dispense de me demander/dire ce qui vous plairait pour Noël, afin que j'évite la catastrophe de dernière minute. Donc faites vous plaisir, demandez.
(pour les cas particuliers aussi connues sous le nom de "maintenant je connais vos adresses respectives, tremblez mortels) : Chouquette, Damoté (LadyOolong), Camarade Gaufre (Mrs-Waffle), Sieskja, etc, n'hésitez pas à me faire part de vos envies de thés, bijoux divers, voire même bouquins/articles de papeterie si ça vous fait plaisir et que j'arrive à trouver ça dans les boutiques parisiennes)

2. Ici, la bonne nouvelle : NANOWRIMO. Aussi connu sous le nom de challenge créatif qui peut tuer un artiste sous la surcharge de travail, cette petite chose qu'est le nano est un défi d'écriture que je vais tenter de relever. Environ 1700 mots par jour qui seront publiés quotidiennement du 2 novembre au 1er décembre sur mon blog mort-vivant. (mais pour l'instant, surtout mort). Il s'agira d'un texte en 4 parties, une par semaine, sur des périodes de la vie de Svenja, avec des réflexions sur la foi, sur de l'amour gnangnan avec des apparitions en guest de personnages/parents de personnages dont j'ai déjà du vous parler ou mentionner.

Bref, ça va être sportif, prenant en compte également mon premier semestre de magie à la fac. Sur ce, je vous souhaite de prendre soin de vous, et que... Ben je sais pas, papillons-paillettes, évitez les grippes et tenez bon dans cette période un peu chargée !
