Beltane Tree by merlynhawk Beltane Tree by merlynhawk
FINALLY! :boogie:

I finally got a new scanner so here are my first few attempts at art with my new markers.

This is a totally new media for me and a totally different style.

:iconphillewis: Phil Lewis is definitely my inspiration for this new style. Thanks for your advice Phil.

Please let me know what you think.

Isn't Beltaine an event where pagans carouse and couple? Lol. Or am I thinking of another one?

No, you're right. Beltane is a time of fecundity, fruitfulness and fertility, and coupling at that festival was thought to bring fertility to the crops and food animals as well.

Copic were very expensive and I had never tried markers before so I wanted to start with something a little more affordable.

I like them quite well actually.
