Just Standing About by AlectorFencer Just Standing About by AlectorFencer
:iconreadplz:

My second Copic test. I still have to get used to the flow of them. I just love colouring with markers as the colours are always so vivid and covering big areas.

Another picture of my spirit, this time just simply standing around. I wanted to draw a full body picture of him in a while. Note that the neck is supposed to be that long as he can stretch his body as far as he likes to. I once "mentioned" that on his first character sheet: [link]
I plan to do a new one soon when I have more time. ^^

For this picture, I used five greens and two blues.
It's really quite hard to shade so many leaves at once. XD

A4 Bristol, Copic Markers and Micron pen, no reference used.

OMG! :faint: Thank you so much for all the comments and favourites! I feel so happy and appreciated that you like the spirit so much. :heart:

you probably hear this alot but with the way he's standing and the look on his face he reminds me of the forest spirit in Princess Mononoke. It's a beautiful picture, really. very striking.

Markers are so much fun to work with! They wok very well for the Plant Spirit too - so vivid and vibrant. You have a lot of patience though for all those leaves!!

I love how vivid this is - and expecially how you merged in some bluer tones with the green to create more interesting shading!
