Whisper Woods

Here we go - Marie's completed illustration :) Since Marie and her husband have been tremendously supportive in commissioning me multiple times, I took extra time on this one, and has a wonderful time with it as a result. For process on this piece, check out previous posts displaying its line art and flat color stages.

Description CopyPasta: Here, late one evening, Tyra and Marthin set up camp deep within a mysterious forest. As Tyra sets up a dry, cozy place for them to sleep, Marthin casts spells by the fire, assuring that their campfire will stay alight and warm without the need for rekindling through the night, and setting a couple of protective spells about as well, to assure they will rest unthreatened. I thought it would be fun if, this deep in the magical woods, there is a type of nocturnal luminescent moth that is attracted to spell-casting. As Marthin casts his spells, these beautiful, silent little bugs draw near, glowing prettily, feeding off of the energy conjured by Marthin's magic. Tyra is bemused as one flies before her, watching her curiously.
