Astral Unity by Inku-inku
My entry for Segol-Hane’s anthro calendar project on DeviantArt named “A world for two” (translation of “Mir dlya dvoich”, “Мир для двоих”).
The theme of this project is to depict various relationships between a pair of anthropomorphic creatures, be it rivalry, love, contempt -, etc.
In my work I’ve tried to show how very different individuals can coexist harmoniously, be it as lovers, coworkers or friends, when working for a common goal or working on a common project/idea. Here, a dark male fruit bat and a light female barn owl, work together to create an ethereal, misty city of their desire.
I believe I have finally found a digital (tradigital..?) technique I’m very comfortable with, making a pencil sketch and a few basic watercolor layers, then adding a gazillion layers/filters/adjustments in PS.
Critique and redline are very much encouraged, as I’m still quite a noob in digital art and anatomy is something I always try to improve.
Pencil, watercolor, PS.
