Fourth sketch, with which I got overly carried away and is no longer a sketch, for
, from the sketch request thingie - Garnet, one of meh own charries. (I really hope you like it! I still feel guilty and non-giftie for making one of my own people. >.< )
Songs really are inspiring, neh? I suddenly got the urge to draw huge firey dancing scenes while listening to the Grandia soundtrack (especially the Ganbo prayer track!)
Medium: Pencils (Faber-Castell Polychromos and kiddy ones) on random textured paper
Time: Around 6 days?
Random history to the dance: Up to the north, where the Assam dynasty has ruled for decades, there has always been a tradition of dancing in honour to the fire god, who they believe protects the land. It is said the dance is the key to controlling the sandstorms which bar all entry to the Great Desert - the desert that no living person has ever returned from.
Anyways, amongst the emperor's troupe of dancers there has always been one known as the diviner. Much like the singer priests of Harmonie, he/she dances and through their feet weave out the pattern of what is to come. This time, it was the young Garnet (well.... young for elvern years anyways), who was expected to become one of the greatest diviners the empire had ever seen, being able to sing as well as she danced (she could prohesize through song as well, a talent that was amazing since it was untaught). However, sadly for His Mightiness the Great Emperor of Assam, his daughter dragged this diviner off on her little adventure, and from that she never returned. XD
[Utterly random - there are no elves native to Sayiraka. Hot climate+sand = ickiness for elves!]
I'm obsessed with songs, dances and prophecies, methinks?
Criticism? I'm sure I messed up on her body proportions? (feet are too big!)
(Go listen to the Prayer of Ganbo! I order you! XD)
