Art from the Archives: Angel

Angel, a digital painting by River featuring Cloud's original character Alicia.

Hello hello and welcome to the first in my series that I’ve suddenly decided to call, “Art from the Archives!”  Basically, old art that I recently found again.  Most of it’s never been posted anywhere, and only seen by my family and friends. . . because back when I drew them, I was not posting regularly. . . .

AHEM.  Anyhoot, the first piece I’d like to share with y’all is titled Angel.  It features Cloud’s OC Alicia from the Tales From New Bruntum role-play.  It’s one of the few pieces of art I made for that project before it went on hiatus, and I think the only finished one.  The style is very different from my current style, no?

As it’s been a few years since I drew Angel, there are naturally things I’d do different now: more delicate lines, update the style, correct the perspective. . . . The one thing I’m very happy with is the color scheme!  I think the soft tones and gentle shading convey the mood very well. =^__^=

I hope you enjoyed this look into the archives!  Tune in next Friday, when I reveal another piece! 😄

Gemstone Challenge Day 12: Turquoise Amulet

A pencil sketch of a child wearing a protective turquoise amulet and bracelet.The birthstone of December, turquoise has also been known for its protective qualities.  I imagine that it’s the perfect gem to create an amulet for those you love, so today’s sketch is of a child wearing a turquoise amulet and bracelet.  They were given to her by her parents and grandparents to protect her when they could not.

Unfortunately, my hand became a little cramped today, so we’re back to posting the pencil sketches.  I’m still planning to complete the Gemstone Streak Challenge, but I’ll probably stop at the pencil sketches for the last two themes as well.  After my hand’s had the chance to rest up, I’ll go back and ink and color them.  It should keep me busy for a little while. ^u^

Today marks the end of the monthly birthstones!  Tomorrow’s theme is Tiger Eye.  I’m looking forward to it!

#Sketchtember Day 2: A Gentle Wish

A Gentle Wish Sketch Watermarked

I pray that you will find happiness.

Today’s sketch features a serene smile!  I’m rather proud of how her hands turned out. . . usually I find hands quite difficult to draw.  Practice practice! ^^

Any other #Sketchtember challengers out there?  How’s it going?
