Another Gormenghast piece. This is Cora and Clarice, easily manipulated twin sisters standing on their giant, dead tree just outside their Room of Roots.

Thanks Sach! Actually I haven't seen the mini-series, I've just been reading the books.

I didn't watch the Tudors, seemed like a medieval soap opera. A lot of prancing and being poncy.

Boy, it's like I want to kill most of the world on your behalf.
Rebecca Dartr_dart on August 21st, 2011 08:24 pm (UTC)
Whoa! Thanks... I think.

I'll take that as unreserved vote of approval to proceed.

The way you lit this piece is fucking blowing my fragile mind.

Rebecca Dartr_dart on August 21st, 2011 08:25 pm (UTC)
Your mind ain't fragile.

I started following your blog a couple of days ago. Your art is really, really wonderful. Every piece has me in awe. I just figured it would be nice to say so!

Love the mood in this one!

That IS nice! Thank you so much. You've made my day.

I'm glad!!

I'm very interested in getting your battle kittens books. Is there any way I could get a signed copy?

This is gorgeous, Rebecca. I must read the books one of these days - I watched the mini-series but didn't really care for it.

I haven't seen the series. I wasn't sure how well it would translate. The books aren't plot heavy, but their appeal is in the beautiful language Peake uses. Example: The mountain appeared and disappeared a score of times during the morning as the drifts obscured it or lifted from its sides. As the day advanced the gauzes thinned, and it was late afternoon that the clouds finally dispersed to leave in their place an expanse of translucence, that stain, chill and secret, in the throat of a lily, a sky so peerless, that as Fuchsia stared into its glacid depths she began unwittingly to break and re-break the flower stem in her hands.

Nope, you don't get much of that with the TeeVee :)

Re: first time artist
Hi there! You must be an animator on MLP. Thank you for getting in touch with me and saying such nice things. I'm working on a Battle Kittens graphic novel right now, but I also have a sketch book for sale: http://cinemasewer.ecrater.com/p/11881164/battlekittens-the-art-of-r-dart

I'll also be at the Comics and Stories con this Sunday along with lots of other really talented local artists: http://www.vancouvercomiccon.com/

Thanks again and maybe I'll see you there.
