Sacred Ink by Grasswhistler Sacred Ink by Grasswhistler
Yep, it's more Endless Forest art. :)
:icondealwithitglassesplz:

But really, TEF is an incredible inspiration for me. I probably do need to branch out in my muses, but for now...this is a gift/fan art for someone, of their character Yorres - friend of the weak, mage, and Lightcreator. I was going for an "illuminated manuscript" or "ancient scroll" look to suit this mystical and reverent being.

I remember when you once drew it. I saw it on TEF. I still adore it, so much! I love every bit of detail in this! :love:

The 'Celtic-knot Pictogram' is really cathcy, too. :)

Thank you so much! :la:
This is still one of my favorite TEF pieces that I've done.

This somehow reminds me of the man-faced Spirit of the Forest from Princess Mononoke. I really love how you've used the reds and golds in the leaves and mask to make the colors that more vibrant against the dark lines of the body. The parchment background is pretty kickin' too.

I'm glad it evokes a little of Princess Mononoke...such a stunning movie. The contrast of red with black has become one of my favorite color pairings, too...and heh, I love using that background: it really helps with the atmosphere I was trying to achieve, I think.

Oh, it's such a gentle and delicate work and it gives off an atmosphere of mystery!! ("ancient scroll" look is amazing)
I also like the pose and anatomy :3
