I used (**): Pro-markers, Mechanical Pencil, Paper Blender, Water Colours, 0.1 Black Pen and a White Ink Pen
But about half way through the book, right before they meet the Leshy, this image of Halvard spotting a wolf in the distance came out of nowhere, and at that point I decided the wolf skin was going to become a lot more than just a wolf skin.
Before I started painting with water colour I used a few pro markers over the sketch
For me Astrid’s clothes were very important. As someone who occasionally wears corsets I can tell you the full torso corsets, while your posture might be perfect wearing them, they will not let you jump around or be particularly flexible.
I really wanted to avoid having anything remotely constrictive about her clothing
I have several sketches of how her clothes are layered in my sketchbook. I’ll show you them properly at some point, but for this book (and probably the next) it’s only really her winter clothes and her wolf skin you get to see.
