Osaera by Kaelycea Osaera by Kaelycea
Another illustration for one of the books I'm working on.

The skull (they belong at the base of trees) is that of a grey wolf.

Ink on Saunders Waterford hot press paper. 7 x 14 inches.

The wood texture is simply amazing! It seems like quite the challenge to me, which makes it all the more impressive :love:

I wasn't sure it would work with the stippling, but I like how it turned out.

I was really pleased with how this turned out, and only wish I had that sort of time to devote to such pieces more often.

I know how that can be. On the other hand, a lot of the time I find myself spending time on a series of not so important tasks that I think are important, and ignoring what is: like working on a drawing or painting. Usually there is time if we look for it. :)

Me too. If I believed in spirit animals, mine would be an otter.
