The Creation of a Myth Journal by Achen089 The Creation of a Myth Journal by Achen089
Moleskine journal commission for ~Frau-Schwarz . We built the concept together based on her idea of a goddess related to myths, legends and fairytales. Some inspiration was drawn from the famous Unicorn Tapestries, illuminated manuscripts, rococo ornamentation and the Aragorn/Arwen bridge scene (from the LoTR movies :D ) for the couple because people of course are the core of myths and legends. :) And this song [link] .

A 13x21 cm Moleskine journal, pigment liner, graphite and white pencils and lots of hours.

I didn't think it was possible, but I love this one just as much as the other one!! The castle and the unicorn are very nice touches! :)

these pages are great. I may have to show them to my D&D group next time they find an interesting book or diary that is important.

Wow. This is beautiful, and really cool. Did you draw the image yourself? I think it's an excellent fairy tale-esque piece.

This is simply gorgeous! I am amazed of how you managed to build this strong and well-balanced illustration with all the references and inspirations you mention. The girl, castle and bridge are great, but my favourite part is the frame with the unicorn :heart:

Oh, and the music from the link is really inspiring! I've added it to my faves in YT, it helps me to study and paint :)

Lovely work and I have to ask, which Moleskine journal do you use for this? The paper looks a bit brown and mine is ivory... let me know ok????

Hello and sorry for my late reply. I use the regular Kraft Moleskine journals [link] - it's just that i also use a fixative spray after i'm done, to seal the pencil so it won't come off and it's the spray that makes it slightly darker. But it's still not that much of a difference, the ones i get are much darker than ivory from the beginning. :confused:
