Celestial Lovers by kyubikitsy
Based on mythological stories, fairy tales, and folklore I had read over the years, this 2 part illustration depicts a few of my favorite themes: star-crossed lovers, elements, and time. Originally, I intended it to be 4 parts, including Water and Earth, but it was a little too ambitious for the time I had to work on it. I incorporated some of my personal heritage and interests into the illustration, which I presented to my boyfriend.
Each board is 20x30 inches, colored with copic markers, watercolors, airbrush, colored pencils, and touched up with paint and gel pens. It is supposed to join properly in the middle, but the boards warped a little in storage and they are difficult to photograph neatly. I also added in the boarders to clean up the edges.
