Bridge of Magpies by shirotsuki Bridge of Magpies by shirotsuki
Hi Deviantart!

It's been a little while, but I'm popping in to share some of the art I made last semester for one of my projects. This is the final "panel" for a short story about two lovers, a meteor shower, and a really really long walk to find each other again. It's based on the folktale The Princess and the Cowherd : >

I wish I had pictures of the book! The whole booklet kind of opens out to the middle of this one giant picture. Then you follow them to either end of the strip, and join it together so they can meet again.

You can see the rest of the artwork for it on my tumblr - [link]

I adore the style in this and how 'glowy' the stars are. All of the designs and textures are beautiful and the flowing images are inspiring.

I am curious, what media and materials did you use? I seem to only identify a few and I'd love to know ho you accomplished the subtle look.

I, uh... huh. I just plain like this one. The insinuation that they wrap around and find each other is actually quite novel, and objectively there's nothing to which I might object. Have you ever thought of doing an art book kickstarter or something along a similar vein?

Great colors and nicely done! I'd love to see this printed out and put on some round wall, just so you can look around and see the story unfold.
