"Descent to the Zenith"
“Drawing Down the Moon”
“The Horned One”
I have always been a much bigger fan of black and white art than I have color work. For everyone else who shares my tastes, here are the original black and white versions of the 7 main pieces from my year long thesis project. My thesis was an investigation into witchcraft, paganism, and the occult. The final colorized versions of these pieces all came out well, but there is something about the black and white versions that doesn’t come across in the color versions.
All of these pieces were produced between August and December of 2013. They are all 12”x18” mixed media on illustration board or paper.
Digital prints of all these pieces are available at www.etsy.com/shop/workweak
"That’s what I was very interested in finding in Thranduil; that’s the complexity… What is the reason that he shuts his doors and avoids the conflict that is in the very wild Middle-earth around him? He is one of those legendary warriors still living in Middle-earth. He found in the Great Alliance; he fought alongside his father who was another great, great warrior. He is a great elf in a long, long, magnificent tradition of elves. He knows how it was done in the old days. And he’s choosing not to get involved; he’s choosing not to fight, and I find that very interesting." [x]
COULD THIS BE ANY MORE ACCURATE
THIS IS THE MOST WONDERFULLY ACCURATE THING I’VE EVER LAID MY EYES ON
This is the most accurate thing I have ever seen.
