harmony gong art sketch - rose quartz princess

For today’s sketch, I’m having fun trying out some pretty new eyes and practicing my watercolor techniques. I usually like a lot of my characters to be pupil-less because I want to make them more mythical and less human. However, I think it’s also nice to see the magic sparkle and well up within the eyes. I imagine this is like a step between human and god – when your eyes become so full of sparkles they eventually coalesce into one pure light; that’s when you ascend to mythic god-level! I was thinking of angels and manga while I was sketching, and this rosey quartz crystal princess came forth. I like not knowing exactly who will appear before me while I draw – It’s kind of like I’m conjuring them to appear in my world via a piece of paper! Art is magic! 🙂
