It has been ages since I've updated my DA account. Part of it is the fact that I've been increasingly busy with my college studies. On one hand, I actually managed to graduate this past semester with a Bachelor's degree in biology. Yay! On the other hand, I'm now enrolled in a Master's degree program, so I'm not off the hook just yet when it comes to being super busy. :') Even so, I finally have enough time to dedicate myself a bit more to my art again.

What art?

Well, it's true, I've been doing very little digitally these past couple of years (and consequently uploading little as I meant to keep my DA gallery a mainly digital, polished piece type of place). On the other hand, I've been doing much more traditionally, and have discovered and developed a love for watercolour pencils and water-washes. I have been posting somewhat regularly on my art Tumblr, have made some sales through my Etsy shop, have vended at an artist alley a couple of times at a con, and very recently, I've started a Facebook page for my art. I do plan to update my DA page again, but it's going to take a little time, and won't be the main priority. So for now, if you're interested in catching up and staying afloat of what I'm doing, it's recommended you follow me on the following platforms of your choice:

Tumblr: forestfantasms.tumblr.com
FB: facebook.com/forestfantasms
Etsy: forestfantasms.etsy.com

The Etsy one has a catch. I'm actually LEAVING Etsy due to some unpleasant policy changes they've made, tomorrow being the last day I'm there. For that reason, I'm currently hosting a shop closing sale there to make use of my remaining listings (which I paid good money for). If you're looking to get a heavily discounted print from me - or a couple - go to my Etsy shop and use the code FOREST50OFF at checkout. That's it. I will be opening up a shop on a different platform soon, and there, you can expect many more listings from me, including original handcrafted stuff.

See you soon in an increased capacity,

Kaytara

Still Life With Dragon
Was mixing paint for another project when turns out I had to delay that, so I put the paint to good use to paint a five-year-old Sketchfest piece I'd been meaning to get around to. Acrylics on canvas painting board. It was tricky to paint as the canvas board was rather small (18x24 cm) and I didn't have primer available so I just used a single coat of black paint, and had to struggle against the grain a lot of the time for the details. In retrospect, I should have used a couple more coats of background paint to smoothe the grain out a little bit more. However, it's been two years since I've even painted anything in traditional paint so honestly I'm just glad I made something.

Draco ligniformes (colour)
Draco ligniformes: A dragon of or resembling wood. Now in colour. ;) I went over it with watercolour + watercolour pencils, then had to retrace some of the ink lines again as they'd been partially covered over. And just for kicks, I then overlayed it on a parchment texture. :) Original lineart here .

Ash seed pendant
A little experiment in herbal jewellery. Small ash tree "helicopter" seeds and cock's foot grass (Dactylis glomerata) wisps sealed with a thin dome of epoxy resin in a pendant setting.

Draco ligniformes
Draco ligniformes: a dragon of or resembling wood. About half a day's worth of fiddly 1 mm black liner work. :) Was going for the feel of older scientific illustrations. I rather like it b/w like this but want to colour it later, too.

Lynx and Cubs
Inspired by playing a lot (and I mean a LOT) of Shelter 2. The inked drawing is actually from half a year ago, but I felt like colouring it last weekend! Watercolour pencils.
