Awakening of the Faun by KmyeChan Awakening of the Faun by KmyeChan
Copyright © Kmye Chan, 2013. All rights reserved.

My blue markers are just not getting enough love, in my opinion. :)

This started as a small doodle to warm up my hands in parallel to the big mermaid picture, but eventually took on a life of its own.
I hope you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed drawing it! :)

wow, amazing! can you tell me how you scanned this image? or more specifically, how you got that perfect white outer background perfectly integrated into a traditional ink piece? Stunning work. www.chriswilhelmart.com

Actually I cleaned the white background in Photoshop - I find it almost impossible to scan white areas without them turning lightly greyish and textured. :)

It only started as one... there definitely were a few very painful moments to turn it into a ful-scale illustration (legs! I hate drawing legs.) :)

Delicate bone structure; it adds to the `'female'  feel of the character.

Yeah your style is so distinctive and interesting I really just love it.

Somehow your stuff is both very clean and really natural and flowing.

I love when a drawing surprises you when you start working on it, it's a really satisfying feeling! This came out beautifully! I especially love that tiny touch of orange near her waist, it just does something wonderful for the entire image!

Thank you very much! It's funny how sometimes, you want to draw something good and nothing comes out of the pencil, and then sometimes you are just doodling for fun and you come up with something you actually like, right? :)

That's so true and has been happening to me a LOT lately! A little portrait will morph itself into a magical fairy queen or a couple of mermaids and I get really excited and can't stop :D

btw, I'm so happy you are back, you've been such a huge inspiration to me!

I am trying to squeeze more drawing into my schedule lately (made somewhat more easy by a much less complicated personal life) :D
