Dreams by Twisted-Existence Dreams by Twisted-Existence
Karrad, the deity of dreams, ideas and imagination. But can he be trusted?

I read about something called ‘Wayob’ in an old National Geographic magazine. They’re supposed to be the spirits or alter egos kings (from Maya) used to curse their enemies; at least that’s what I read it as. I wanted make to make it look like Karrad was doing something similar.

Inks, watercolours and acrylics. 2 – 3 hours maybe.

The character, Karrad, belongs to me.

It usually comes with practice. Painting is fun, or at least I find it fun.

Wow :O beautiful colours! I love seeing hints of colour over black - it reminds me of the northern lights! The smokey animal is really awesome, did you use watered down acrylics? Really beautiful piece overall! I think it's a great example of how artists can make something in such a short amount of time and still have it look fantastic (you know how people can get caught up in high detail ^^)

I think I used both watered down acrylics and also using them a bit more thickly too if I remember right...

Thanks for the comment and the fav. :D
