Assassin

8개월 전

One episode left to Game of Thrones, hey? What a journey it has been :) Some episodes were really memorable and some were...... not so much. I've watched it since the first episode of the first season and it's been quite an experience, not just the show, I mean, but the rise of HIGH FANTASY as a mainstream tv :) I could never predicted that it was going to be 'normal' to talk about a Game of Thrones episodes on the bus, or at work, or during dinner with family and friends, etc.

LOL what an age do we live in, eh? XD

Anyway, I'm not going to talk about the show for today's post, so don't worry. There will be NO spoilers :D

This is something I drew today cuz I was trying to marry my inking and my watercolouring but I was trying NOT to overwhelm the ink works with the colours so I decided to limit myself into working only with one colours over the ink, pale yellow~ An assassin character came out for me :D

The grey scale is ink wash, and the yellow was watercolours :) The ink is done with the cheapo fountain pen from DAISO :)

I have step by step, as usual, but I am trying to kind of get out of the habit of ALWAYS including them because it takes a fair bit of time to format them, and im TIME POOR lately, so here is one step of the picture:

I think she is entering a tent and is about to strike with her dagger! Quite a determination!

Okei, that’s it for now :) See you all next time, friends o/

Steemit Art Class

Wanna join the arting bandwagon? :D All is welcome \o/

Check out @shibasaki’s blog where he has published many watercolour videos, pick one and then create a post with your result :D Anyone can join in ! You don’t HAVE to do them in watercolours if you don’t have watercolours~ Do them in pencils, or inks, or pastels, or even digitally and then tag me with an @veryspider at your post and I’ll give your post a shout out in my next article, for sure :D

AND, we have a new student at today's #ArtClass at Steemit and it is @thilah! :D :D :D

Check out her strawberry picture that was done following @shibasaki sensei's tutorial here:

I might try to do something further with this art class initiative in the future, but I need to pace myself as I’ve got this habit of taking too much on :3

Amazing artwork Spider, the eyes say a lot about the assasin's intentions:) I am on the same page with you about GoT, is a universal phenomenon that like no other before, i am really hoping for a good end... but i am not sure. Nevertheless it was a fantastic journey:)

·

Thanks, George :D

Yeah, GoT has sure been a game-changer in terms of high fantasy being a mainstream genre :) But at this point, I'm just hoping for an 'okay' ending, more keen about it being all wrapped up than expecting a 'great' ending ... at this stage. Hahaha...

But yea! It has been a great journey :D

·
·

I think the last scene of GoT will be Bron riding to his big new castle,lol.

Wow Spider that is a record 63 comment! I am 64th, beautiful work, I like the combination of ink and watercolor, looks cute!

·

Thanks for 64th :D

I've never watched GoT, but since I follow some meme pages I know a little of it based on the comments, and I've seen a lot of spoilers, lol.

As always your drawing really nice, but I think this is the 1st time I see you add watercolor in your drawing.

Anyway, That thilah drawing really cute and full of color I love it, and what do you mean by art class? is it a streaming class? or we watch some videos like YouTube? it might be really interesting to learn from other artists

·

hehehe yes, there's LOTS of GoT memes ... XD

Thank you for kind comments :D :D :D

Art Class is simple, it's just creating an art work from a tutorial that you've seen online, somewhere. Maybe like, you wanna learn "how to do ....blahblah..." (for example, me, i wanna learn how to do colours with watercolours) so then I look up tutorials from @shibasaki :)

Then I follow the lesson and then i upload the results !

THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO IT~

@hananan, join? :D :D :D

·
·

ah, I thought it's some online class :D I'd like to join, what should I do? any paper work? lol

·
·
·

No, no paperwork, just go ahead and create a post and @ my name when you make the post :D

The only important thing is to:

  1. Link the lesson you are trying to follow
  2. Place your own result artwork

THAT'S IT :D :D :D

·
·
·
·

Interesting, I'll do it when I finished all my painting, hahha, right now I've a bunch of unfinished paintings :D

"Some episodes were really memorable and some were...... not so much"
Yeah, I can kinda tell from the tweets from peeps despite me myself not watching the series

Ahhh that is one super pretty yet deadly assassin!
And yaay new student Thilah reporting for duty cue that anime trope where a class gets a new student//no

·

Hahah yeah, this season is really divisive! Lots of people on both sides, loving and hating~ Twitter has been VERY busy about GoT, for sure :)

Thank you, @thilah -chan!!! You are going to be a great student, I can feel it <3 <3 <3 Cuz you are super talented omg \o/

I was contemplating whether or not to read this, but I decided, fuck it, I will. I seem to be 7 days behind on my GoT viewings. She looks fierce and like she'd kick your arse.

·

Thankfully no spoilers in this one! I still feel bad about spoilering you in the previous post ; __ ;

Catch up, choo!!! Final episode next week!!!!!!!!

·
·

Lol. Don't feel bad. It's just tv at the end of the day.

Oh my, does this mean there are more sand snakes who come out of the southern desert and kill everyone?

Cool drawing!

·

The sand snakes were such a let down to me > __ < Oberyn deserves better !!!

Thank you :D

Glad that I jumped into the GoT world. Whatever the ending becomes, this series is epic ><

·

I'm glad you did join! :D It's an epic series, to be sure!!!

ONE MORE EPISODE, woooooooooooo~

Wow it’s almost the end and I’ve never watched the show 😂 I don’t know why I never really got into it, and I’m big on medieval usually. Was planning to watch along with my sister when she’s watching the last season but even she’s been so busy with work. 🤪

I’m super into the dark desaturated look of this piece. Would have liked to see the whole inkwork before you went in with the wash and watercolours 😋

Also, your grandad is awesome what!!

Thank you so much for kind comments and yeah, my grandpa is AMAAAAAAZING XD

Like I said before, you can seriously consider yourself as a true artist my friend. This is a great drawing indeed.
Blessings!

·

awwwwww you are too kind, @papilloncharity :D :D :D

·
·

I like to return kindness my friend and you are helping our charity with your @helpiecake resteems and also in other ways.
Our page is in Papillon's name and every cent that I raise will eventually go to Papillon. I just hope steem will grow, but in the meantime I do what I can.
Blessings and thank you once again for your help!

her eyes and this "mask" (don't know how it is called) are so gorgeous
also: the step 1 is already sooo good...as good as a final piece for some others *sigh

·

thank you so much! i am very flattered to receive this comment aaaaaaa * __ *

@veryspider, I have returned from my exile to once more heap praise on your artwork! :)

I, too, have thoroughly enjoyed GoT's rise to fame, and while not all of it have been that great, noone can deny its impact

·

YAY! Welcome back!!!

Yep, GoT has definitely made high fantasy somewhat more mainstream and it's been kinda cool, to see that kind of impact in our pop culture sphere :D

For some reason your drawing reminded me of the Assassin in the MMORPG Ragnarok, it made me reminisce about that game. Anyway, I really love the details! It just looks so amazing. Keep it up :) Have a great day

·

aaaaaa i never played Ragnarok but I always love its art style :D Thanks so much, @sgbonus !!!

Amazing work!

Spider, I love how the limited colour accentuates both her form and beauty as well as her grey nature.

It's a lovely style you are evolving, where you combine the ink line drawing with the tones of ink and just a touch of watercolour. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

·

Thank you, Ally <3 I am glad to hear that this style might be working well :D

I love gray scale images, not gonna lie~ Hahaha <3

Proud to be one of the rare humans who never saw one second of Game of thrones :D But I love the sketch @veryspider! resteemed

·

Hahahah, Jan ! GoT is definitely not for everyone and that's cool :D

Thank you for your kindness, as always <333333

Sensual and dangerous: 3 I adore this drawing

·

Thank you, Andrea :)

Very nice work @veryspider, your super detailed and intricate inking combined with the watercolours is a nice effect.

·

Thank you, @jeremyrfk :D I am glad the balance between the ink and the watercolours seems to be working for this piece... ^ ___ ^

It's a sexy killer ;-D

·

Grazie, bella~ <3

Oh my gosh I so want to talk about that last episode though, what a shocker! I love the textile on your assasin as well as the ornate detail in the trimmings, they are exquisite to look at. I struggle to find anything that could be improved as I find myself hypnotized by the detail dancing in a blue and green melody. Perhaps the pose could be a bit more dynamic like flamenco inspired to go with your regal signature style.

·

They certainly tried their best to be ........... "SURPRISE!!!!!!!" to the audience. I think. LOL...

Thank you for kind comments and for visiting <3

Hey @veryspider, beautiful (and dangerous) assassin (((:
Lovely! <3

Btw, did you read the book series Game of Thrones was based on? If so, how did you find the book vis-a-vis the show? (: (asking because I really like high fantasy)

·

Thank you very much, @joeylim !

I did read the books. I think they are quite different, the book established a lot more nuance and has a lot more depth in the characters and politics, but the tv series has great pacing which keeps audience's attention engaged :)

I guess @winstonalden said when the final season ends he might get HBO for the month so we can watch it. It's been so long since the last season I don't even really remember what was happening, but I'm sure it will be good. I wonder why they aren't making any more, I though the man was still writing books?

·

That's a good idea :) Binge watching is always fun !

The author is pretty old and he is only getting older, and he said he is struggling with writing the books :(

<3 we all love @veryspider <3 I look forward to seeing all characters the game of thrones. to your style

Hahahah, I dont think I will draw fanarts from GoT, to be honest... But thanks for the idea :D

You are so freaking talented!

Awwww, you are so very kind * ____ *

Wow, it's really an interesting character!
I'm watching GoT and I'm agree with you: some episodes were really memorable and some were not so much. :D

·

Thanks very much, Silvia :)

Yeah, quite varying degrees of quality in the episodes!!! For sure~

Yes, I read the GOT books (first three, anyway) a long time before the series was even an idea. On the whole they've done a pretty good job. Let's hope they don't screw it up too much now!

Love your artwork! 😍

Thanks very much, @felt.buzz :D Me too, I read the books long ago but I kind of got distracted in the middle of the third book. Will probably try to get back at it, some day!

·
·

I think I got lost waiting for book 4!!! 😅

Posted using Partiko Android

Adding the watercolour really makes the whole outcomes look softer, I like it!

·

Thanks, lailai <3 That's right, isnt it? Ink sometimes are pretty stark and watercolours soften it rather nice :D

·
·

Yup, that's how I feel too!
