Dark Ferryman | splinterlands art contest week 213
Hey hey~~ So I just had this realization while I was going over my content for this week. And I can definitely say that what I write is all over the place XD And I don't like how messy my dashboard got when inktober ended. So like... I might have to start planning days again because I need at least some sort of organization in my life.
Anyways, after 3 weeks of not participating in the splinterlands weekly art contest, I'm finally back! For this entry, I was actually thinking of doing Dr. Blight because I still want spooky vibes eventhough halloween is over. But then I saw the Dark Ferryman card and my brain immediately decided that "This is the card you're gonna work on this week. No complains"
And that is how I ended up spending my afternoon, painting again because my brain is having a hard time shifting back to digital art again ;;-;;
So this is my dark ferryman! I know the focus isn't exactly on him, but I think this came out really pretty OwO
At first, I wasn't really sure if I'd try this on digital or on traditional so I decided on both to see if my brain could keep up.
So this is the digital one I tried while I was waiting for the ink to dry on the traditional art.
Then here's a little timelapse I made for my progress so far
This was my 30 minute progress before I realized my ink was dried XD And I kind of got fixated with what I was doing... then before I realized it, 2 hours passed, and I ended up finishing this drawing in one sitting.
Started with the sketch and the perspective I wanted to work with.
At this point, I actually questioned why I bothered to sketch when I can't even see my pencil sketch
So I just started a new sketch with my 0.05 fineliner while I still remembered the concept I wanted to go with.
I really think I work better on traditional than digital half the time ;;w;; and I work faster too (except for when I need to wait for the ink to dry). But I enjoy being a versatile artist that can hopefully keep up with all the brilliant digital artists here on hive ;;w;; because every time I look at the weekly entries in the splinterlands weekly art contest, my mind is blown with how amazing their digital art is .
I referenced on this
Well... More like I got the idea from the card (card details can be seen here: https://www.splintercards.com/reward-dark-ferryman). No regrets on choosing this card though, it's pretty and it looks so much like charon.
Materials used: Fineliner pens, white pen, liquid ink, chalk for a little texture
Duration: 2 hours (Ink drying not included XD)
And this is all I have to write about for today ^w^ I still need to plan out my weekly content again. See you guys later~!!
I think it turned out super cool!
Thank you senpai OwO as long as the ferryman is still visible UwU
The eyes are creepy, and doing this kind of perspective on such a small area requires a bit more finesse than most people realize. Keep up the great work.
💕 okay that comment made me really happy >w< thank youuuuu
I love the arrangement of the scene (I don't know how you call it in 2D). The plain black & white color added to the story of your art. It's devoid of color and it's giving off the vibe of hopelessness. 😊
I am wondering if it is possible to add some kind of mist as I feel like it would add the element of being lost or unknown to the environment? I don't know how to achieve that on a paper. 😁
I tried to use chalk for the mist effect but it wasn't really building up like I hoped for. I'm not sure what other medium I could use for a better mist effect, but it still has that mystery at least and that makes me proud
No idea how to achieve it so I can't give any tip. Anyway, this still looks great already as it is. 😊
Maybe I'll try more environment studies to get a good mist going
Good luck. Wish you all the best. 😊
