“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

FLABELLUM_commission

[9 x 12" - blue pencil, brush & technical pen, COPIC marker on 100lb/300series bristol board]





The fan (as well as her whole forearm) in her left hand should have been in a deeper shadow to help 'turn' it away from the viewer and, in turn, would help with its depth.

I will try to do it better given another opportunity.

Awesome work as always man. I'm sort of disappointed that folks on deviantart aren't seeing any of your more recent work unless they follow the blog here. Their loss, but still disappointing none the less.
