Coming along in a satisfactory direction, though this reporter has learned the artist was secretly freaking out about what to do for the background. Sources close to the hasbeen say he went to a local 7-11 to chow downward to a solution, though these rumors remain unsubstantiated.
Extra extra, read all about it--a pic of how just the guts were turning out.
My hand got all inked up while in the middle of that Pierce the Veil session that when I was working on this one, the edge of my hand dipped a blunk of ink onto the page, so I decided to work that into the piece, smurdging and smoodzjing ink all around like a mad, mad, happy child.
A live ink to da max with my multi-color ballpoint pen for this (largely useless) Elf Warrior torn alter token. I actually started this a while ago, before SOI rendered Elf Warrior tokens even less relevant, but I finished it off just today in an effort to clear my little docket of tokens that have been waiting to receive finishes.
It does suck that the token is basically unusable, but to be fair, this was more of a learning experience anyway to see how articulate we can get using just this pen. I do know not to mix them with Copics, for example, we learned that. So I'm pretty happy with what we can get, will have to watch the blending a bit more, but next step is to try this on a more usable token. I do love Copics, so I figure this might be just a good option if I'm ever looking for something relatively more straightforward or mobile, since I don't need my Santa-bag of Copics immediately on me for these.
Again inspiration for this was from Chiara. The background, I was on the fence about. Didn't want to do another night sky, kinda wanted to incorporate more green for the token's actual color, so went with a jungly/foresty-night, somewhat abstract background.
