sketch of the tea faery Enkou
she is my favorite original of mine, and something of a persona. i featured her in illustrations during my thesis last year. she operates a peculiar tea house in the cloudy middle of dimensions, and serves all sorts of folk who happen to cross the borders of the universe.
enkou does not charge for currency, instead she asks visitors to give her a story, which she records and then serves them tea made of the essence of their own tale, with her magic teapot. that means she has an endless amount of flavors to surprise her visitors, and they always love the taste. but why does she collect stories? why does she serve so much tea? how does she even do that? we just don’t know.
Thank you!! I’ll keep doing my best! <3
Thank you so much. ^^ I’m glad you feel that way, this makes my day!
Going to have a hiatus on commissions for a bit. I feel like, after doing a bunch, I need to redo my set up and simplify my choices/adjust pricing.
Also wanna thank everyone for following this blog, and I hope you continue to enjoy my stuff!
repost of a 5-foot-something charcoal piece I worked on a couple years ago now, for a final assignment where we had to go all out while using historic paintings as reference. I picked out a bunch of mythological creatures depicted by various artists to work with, and just had a lot of fun mashing them together! definitely one of my favorites, although I’m taking a break from charcoal these days. please fullview!
keep me grounded… down to earth.
happy birthday stahl! actually i am a little bit late on my time…
a somewhat emotional drawing i thought of a while back, after a conversation i had with a friend over how sweet stahl is, but how bad i felt that he would beat himself up over being too plain or normal. but isn’t that normalness, someone so nice and relaxed, a good change of pace for the avatar, who’s dealt with so much? he’s a place of refuge for her, someone to come back to… and that makes him really important!
(then, i bet at the very end they ate 5 dinners together—)
