In loving Memory by Mizoue In loving Memory by Mizoue
This piece is in loving memory dedicated to my Grandad, who sadly passed away on November 7th.
This is my best piece to date. (It's not actually finished, I rushed it to get it finished ready to be sealed in his coffin)
I stayed up all night, it took me over 24 hours to do in near enough one sitting, 18 hours on the digital colouring, a few hours on the line art the night before.
I'm fairly happy with the result, but it's down to DA and other sites what they think.
I give this to you as a tribute to him, a living legend. <3
Ink on paper and then digital colouring in PSCS2

I also used some of my own stock for textures.

May change this design around in the future, but for now, here you go DA.

I recently did the same for my Gramps (about a week prior, actually) and, in a way, I think he saw it. Regardless, it is good to express yourself and you know he would have loved it :)

It's a painful experience, but I'll carry on my art for him, I was close to giving up a few times.

Kind of. He had liver disease and died of blood poisoning. But he had an amazing funeral. ^_^

Yeah me too, he was a lovely man, it was the best turn out in a small remote village they had seen for 20 years and it was on a work night too, so I think more would have come.
Reality hasn't really set in yet that he's gone.

Ahah, I'm so glad too! Makes everything pretty and shiny, even though I'm not getting the recognition I thought I would on DA for this!
