Tribute to Bilibin by charcoalfeather Tribute to Bilibin by charcoalfeather
A tribute to the wonderful drawings of Ivan Bilibin drawn in moleskine with copics, pencil crayons, and ink. It took around 2-3 hours in total.

It's based on the Russian folk story of Prince Ivan and the Firebird.

Taken with my iPhone, so it may be a little blurry.

Thanks!

Yeah, I thought this was not a bad idea for a picture, so I decided to re-draw it digitally back in January.

Awesome! I've actually never seen Bilibin's art in real life, sadly. I only found out about his great art online, via a friend who likes to show me illustrations by different artists.

The colours are great. I really enjoy the vibrancy. :D

May I suggest retaking the photo when you get the chance? I feel like the blurriness does no justice for the smaller details.

Thank you! And thanks so much for the watch and the faves too. :hug: 

I think I might retake it, actually. Now that my scanner works, I think scanning would be even better.

Love your color choice. You did an excellent job portraying the darkness of the woods behind. Everything in the front pops with color, as if the sun's magnifying or intensifying it!
