Commission for ~Ravenwolf89
She wanted a portrait of one of my knotes in the same picture as one of my equines. She sort of wanted a light and dark theme and, in a sense, a gloomy/happy theme. The Knote represents the night side and is supposed to be rather gloomy surrounded by his fog cats while the equine represents the light side and is full of joy.
What I find unique is the fact that the Knote is whole and furry yet sad while the equine is wasting away to bone yet has plants blooming on it and is glad The whole thing falls into a circle because I think these two must exist together. As ~Ravenwolf89
's ideas and mine meshed, I think something rather unique and symbolic came out.
I really enjoy rotating this picture. When I want to feel night time I look at it this way and rotate it when I want to feel daylight. Time: 20 estimated hours from original concept to final.
Tools: 0.5 mm mech pencil, chalk pastel, watercolour pencil
