Devour by Saimain Devour by Saimain
Morgan and Nimri. Pencil + Sharpie marker + watercolor + white paint pen = :heart:
I was originally going to go with straight pencil/watercolor for this, but I couldn’t get quite the contrast I wanted, so I played around with things until I found…a Sharpie marker in my kitchen drawer! I’ve never used markers or permanent ink on my art before this, but now I’m in love. It stays put no matter what you throw over the top of it, and works brilliantly with watercolor paper. I had such a blast with this. More artwork forthcoming!

Beautiful contrast between light and dark. Highly detailed and yet simple at the same time. One can feel the emotions of great love and deep heartache emanating from the piece.

You leave the viewer, the admirer, wondering; "Is that a trickle of blood running down her cheek, or, perhaps, a sad make-up muddied tear?"

Life is a balance and everything around us is part of that. You depicted such in your artwork perfectly.

Beautiful piece! For some reason every time I stray back to look at this I remember the lyrics of 'Devour' from Disturbed. Which makes this piece even more powerful to me.

I have GOT to remember to buy this print when I get back from DragonCon in a few weeks. I wish you were in the art show...I'd go crazy buying your prints!

(Back when I was still drawing....sharpies and pen/ink were my favorites.)

Thanks! Just drop by my Meadowhaven store and you'll find them. :)

I wish I could afford to sell at the DragonCon artshow again! Money is so crazy tight I can hardly even afford to restock prints, let alone purchase matting, backing boards and bags, and shipping fees on top of it. :( Hope you have a blast, though! One of these days, when I find a money tree somewhere, I really, really want to make it out there. ^__^;

:iconsibyllastgermain:
SibyllaStGermain Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2012
Well, I'll be watching to see if you ever make it back. I would have a field day with your prints! I buy most of my copious amounts of art at the Con. This year I'm going to NYCC to meet Brom again, and hope I get a couple more original sketches.

I totally get the money thing...we're all in that boat pretty much. And matting/framing is CRAZY expensive. I should start a home business. I can't frame ANY of my prints. It costs more than the print!

Good luck with the money situation. I hope you make it BIG someday. You have all the talent to do so.
