Tea break

Share

A smaller artwork this time, but nonetheless dear to me (2017)

Alyssa is taking a break with her favorite cup of sweet black tea.

There's an Easter egg hidden in the picture (not sure if I can call it that, but it's related to one of my favorite video games).

Is that a specific kind of black tea or just black tea in general

Ioruko responds:

As black as night!

Lovely scenery.

Se ve que esta viviendo ka vida ehh

I see Emil from Nier in the back. Was that the Easter egg?

That said, this is lovely work. The teacup does blend in with the background, but it's a minor nitpick. Alyssa's design is quite beautiful, but maybe I'm just a sucker for characters with striking red hair *swoon*

Overall, lovely details in the background.

Ioruko responds:

Yeah, that's him! I love Nier: Automata and I thought why not just hide it in the picture somewhere?
Thanks for the feedback! If I was drawing this scene now I'd change a lot of things, but it's almost 2 years old, so I think I'll leave it be.
Oh, I know, I like red hair and I think it suits Alyssa just perfect!

I cant wait until you're eligible to be scouted! Everything about this screams professional to me , down to the lighting, amazing work : D

Ioruko responds:

Ah, thanks! I try to post once a day for now, to avoid overwhelming anyone's feed. I strive to be a professional, so it makes my day brighter to hear such praise :)
