From the void...
The best part of making an illustration is the magical moment when the smudges on the paper or on the screen stop being something and become someone. With the Old Knight above the transition was very fast and very powerful. It was the moment I added some lighter bluish to the irises. Three-four brush strokes... max four seconds... and suddenly I realized those were eyes that had seen life... and even more importantly... seen things I hadn't seen. I felt shivers run down my spine.
It is an amazing feeling to bring something... someone out from the void. To create something out of nothing.
