Whew, it's been awhile since I posted recent arts, and I have a helluva backlog of stuff to share!

I saw some lovely drawings recently done in lighter pencil on black paper, and was totally taken by the technique. I've never done it before, and thought what the hell, and gave it a try. And since I am in eternal fangirl mode for all things Marvel, here we are.

Loki, done in white pencil on black paper, just the parts where the light reflects on the surfaces. It was a bit of a challenge thinking in reverse (drawing only highlights, rather than only shadows, and still trying to convey some sort of expression), but I loved the effect. Expect to see a lot more like this!


This is my signature; there are many like it, but this one is mine.

I've also been wanting to try out that technique for a while. I've seen some amazing fanart done with it, and yours is definitely one of them. I love it! And it has nothing to do with the awesomeness of Loki Wink

Finally back from hiatus, but being a busy-bee with studies.
