Succubus :V

An advantage of now planning fae-related stories despite having previously had zero interest in that kind of thing, is that suddenly fantastically well done art like this is interesting to me! That and the fact that suddenly all the gothic romantic lyrics in the music I listen to are suddenly relevant to things in my actual brain.

Cape Romano Dome House

"Built in 1981 on the southern tip of Marco Island, the Dome House is an igloo-like concrete complex made up of white dome chambers, now decaying and slipping slowly into the ocean. Many know about it’s whereabouts but it’s origins were up to debate; from alien to secret cults. In truth, it was built by a retired oil producer and inventor… The structures remain there to this day but are so far from the shore due to changing shoreline, that any attempt at saving them has probably long been lost.” [via]

These look weirdly conspiratorial, like they are definitely friends, chatting and/or plotting something with each other.

HELLO FRIENDS are you getting a married?? Want to make an extra special day?? fear NOT for I TYTO shall a deliver a rings just for you

I looked at this like.. What.. is this a REAL thing? An OWL bringing you your wedding ring? Who.. what.. I .. just.. 
And that’s how I ended up doing a google search for ‘owl deliver wedding ring’. In which I discovered not only is this a THING but there is more than one company that does this. You can indeed involve a barn owl in the proceedings, and even fly it through a church.

More seals at Kinghorn

So many photos from the Isle of May and indeed Orkney I haven’t yet shown but I continue to ignore my backlog. Here’s some more of the local seal population, doing as seals do, relaxing as only seals can. The one in the bottom right of the top picture was I think a very young seal, we saw it playing with another seal in the water.

think about these things when you’re making a fictional place; even a developed city has its roots in how easy it was to settle in the first place!

Good things about drawing eyes. One of my top pet peeves is the far eye being drawn physically smaller; that doesn’t really happen unless you’ve got a fish-eye lens perspective going on in the whole composition. It tends to just look like one eye is smaller than the other, rather than two eyes at an angle.

Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.

How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!

13 out of 36…

29 out of 36, and I wasn’t really sure if I was good at reading people

i got 26, which is apparently average

ooh i got 28

when the hell did i become good at faces, bc i usually score v badly on these things

I found this really difficult when I was doing it, a lot of them I was like ‘what the hell, I don’t even know- none of those!!’ Also, most of the women are doing your standard model expression bedroom eyes in my opinion- not genuine emotion real people would usually show. However, with all that said, apparently I got 32 out of 36?! Considering I’m actually pretty bad at reading people in real life, I’m surprised.

I have been interviewing women who work in Fantasy Illustration about their lives, art and careers. It’s a goldmine of knowledge and advice both for working artists and also for aspiring illustrators and artists.

There are currently 17 different interviews, so get reading and enjoy!

You can find all of the interviews here: http://kirileonard.com/tag/women-in-fantasy-illustration/

More good stuff to read from Kiri Leonard, and of course the interviewees.

Aw yeah Carmen!!!

Reblogging to remind myself to read this later. Heather Hudson was one of my favourite artists growing up, as back then in pre-internet days all the fantasy art I saw was on Magic: The Gathering cards.
