Not My Gods by saki-guzman
Not My Gods

“They’re Not My Gods.”

I drew this about a year ago but I only decided to finish it recently. The negative theme, coupled with the fact that I didn’t enjoy the latest season of GoT (didn’t even finish, didn’t even really start, come to think of it) made me defer this for a later time. Glad I finally completed it, as I like how it turned out. Not all pieces have to be happy and sometimes portraying negative emotions can be pretty powerful too. What better character to portray the need for vengeance than Arya Stark?

It’s a little weird how the Stranger ended up looking like that English actor, Richard E. Grant, but this was unintentional.

Reference: I just used google search for the blacksmith. 

Starktron Wolves by saki-guzman
Starktron Wolves
Clearly influenced by old mecha animation here- Voltron, Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs, etc...I'm not sure if they're supposed to form together and turn into a giant robot but it's enough for me that I have them all laid out here with their respective pilots. 

The wolves didn't turn out exactly like I wanted but I'm satisfied with this overall. Something about the background doesn't seem right so I might change it later.
Something I wonder about when I see works of art like this (by puimun), this (by tir-ri) or this (by Himmapaan).

From what I know- what these illustrations have in common is that they're all made using traditional media. Not doing a digital vs. traditional comparison here. That seems pointless, given that both have their merits. I often choose digital simply because it's so much more convenient. But there's a certain character and uniqueness to traditional art that digital doesn't have. It's that thing though, that makes me wonder how exactly an artist can give his/her work away, even if there's a paycheck to be had later.

I mean, it's not like you can click a button and make another copy. There's only one original we're talking about here...and even if you took the time and effort to recreate that single painting, it's just not the same.
