Copic Markers Post #267 (or so)

Forest Grace and Afghan Hound
Each 2.5″ x 3.5″ Copics, ink

On the left is another spirit mask. And at the risk of tiring all my kind visitors, below are the three spirit masks with the animal faces and botanical crowns which I am now calling the Forest Graces.

The afghan hound was created for a “Dogs” swap. Bit of a new style, with less black and mostly brown fine liner. From this reference photo. I like him! I am going to try to incorporate more hatching. Perhaps I’ll go find some hatching instructional videos. :)

I like to look at at these particular spirit masks all together. Maybe a couple more and I’ll do a set of some sort. Or a print. Or cards. Hmm. Thanks for dropping in! Lots of progress pics.

    I just love these masks…..the minute details are amazing. How in the world do you come up with the variety of details and intricacies Afghan hound is wonderful too…… beautiful haunting eyes and flowing hair……very organic and spirited.

    If you find an awesome hatching video, please let me know! I want to get lots better at it!

    I love your spirit masks with ridiculous lifelong devotion, as I may have mentioned one or 30 times. Your progress pictures remain endlessly fascinating to me. I could look at them over and over, probably for an hour. It’s so fun watching you build up the detail!
