Sabriel - Character Design by thetoaster
Sabriel - Character Design
This is an experiment in character design. It's Sabriel, from the Old Kingdom Trilogy (which is now a Tetralogy)! I used regular Photoshop brushes for the forground, McBadShoe's watercolour brushes to add texture to the background, and the map from the books for the background image. 

Here Sabriel is about 18, pictured as she appears in the first book. I'm planning on doing character art for all the main characters from the series at different ages, as I'd like to practise my design skills.

This is an old watercolour from a few years ago. I think I did it when I was about 16, but I can't be sure.

Sunset - (3/10) by thetoaster
Sunset - (3/10)
The woodblock carving is of the street behind the house I grew up in. I love the skyline of Australia suburbia. I think it is very beautiful, even at its most mundane. The background to the black woodblock is a monoprint. Monoprints are unique, and you can’t recreate them. Even if you run the same one through twice, you get a completely different look, as the ink has faded and colours have run. They’re kind of like sunsets in that way! (I’ve watched a lot of sunsets over this street). 

The original of this series is now for sale on my Etsy! www.deviantart.com/users/outgo…

Hey :)
Is that latest painting I saw you carrying around at school going to be uploaded? I only saw it briefly, but it looked awesome. "Hay street mall" I think?
