story sketch: shine on [update: 07-18-2011]

This sketch is based on [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith's poem shine on about Shahana, the world-weary paladin, and Ari, the peasant girl who became her apprentice and travelling companion when a raid on her village left her with no better options. Shahana has found a fallen star and speaks of her goddess Gailah, weakened in an attack by priests of a rival god, but does not concede defeat, using the light of the star as a symbol of the resolute faith by which Gailah's followers will one day prevail.

Re: Yay!

(Is there a critter near the boulder, sort of left-of-center? It kind of looks like a face in the brush.)
I hadn't really thought of it..but there could be! Something to keep in mind when I go back to work on it...

Moonvoice's art is impressive; I'm as much in awe of her patience as her skill.

Patience, dexterity, and speed. This project is taking forever because, well, there are a million stipples in it. But I've seen her post a sketch one day, ink outline the next, and completed watercolor the third. And she can effectively use color combinations that normally work only for, say, God in sunsets.
