Riu Riu Chiu by Kastelkreuz Riu Riu Chiu by Kastelkreuz
"...El lobo rabioso la quiso morder mas dios poderoso la supo defender..."

-- Ru Ru Chu. Anonymous


--------

Tools: Ink and Dip-pen, as usual.

Featuring the Ethereal Empress, from the books I currently work on. Is a pseudo counterpart to Mezzanotte

The drawing is inspired by the medieval carol "Ru Ru Chu". Never hear of it? [link]
I was into learning dead languages when I was a teenager, specially Latin and old Castilian. Now I don't have time for studies... and might have forgotten everything I knew.

The wolves and the textures that symbolize plants are just perfect for this style! Very interesting piece. : )

I love the fact that you wield a dip pen! :D

Maybe the proportions and the face of the woman could be improved a bit, those seem to be weeker than the rest of the drawing.

OK, this is the second piece of yours that has come up on getwatchers, and I'm commenting again, so now I guess I'll go and check out your gallery. I love the style; the way you use varied textures with thin pen lines reminds me of Aubrey Beardsley (think I got that spelling right). Very cool. This one reminds me of a tarot card or something of that nature.

You're so good at drawing hachuras ( I don't know how they call it in English, they are the lines that create this shadow effect), the details are just delighting

Oh wow, another gorgeous traditional piece. I love the details in the dress and the wolf fur. And the sword penetrating the wolf from the side looks fantastic and so unusual. Great work! :w00t:

Excuse me * wipes drool off the drawing*.

Seriously, is awesome. Love the details, the clean lines, the 'illustrated cantiga' effect.
