Sand

This one was just a lot of fun to paint. I had been a while since I drew any form of pattern or line in the hairs of a character, I think it's something I should do more ofter, it adds a certain leven of detail that is pretty interesting. It was also nice to work with a palette that has more body than what I usually work with.

 



Sand

“Everything falls apart
Like a sandcastle
Eaten by waves.
Their base eroded,
Walls go down
And bricks break apart
Until the last sign of structure left
Is a characterless pile of granules.
But none of this matters
As sand merely needs to be reshaped
To form a castle anew.”
