Cruella by KatBjorky
Omg Cruella De Vil on Once Upon a Time is fabulous! I didn't think I'd like her but damn she's good haha

Anyway this is my first ever try to do a portrait with Promarkers and it certainly was a challenge and I still don't know how to do it right, but for a first go I am happy with it.
I'm learning to try and enjoy the process and not focus on the end result these days, which helps because if you worry about how it'll end up looking you kinda get too scared to even try sometimes. The only real failure is to not try at all.

So materials used are: Micron pens for inking, Promarkers, a few hints with Derwent colour pencils and I used bleed proof manga paper :)
Evil Queen Art Nouveau by KatBjorky
Evil Queen Art Nouveau
A4 Manga Paper. Micron pens, promarkers, flexmarkers, mecanichal pencil, red and black colour pencils.

Really proud of this! just because I worked so hard and it turned out 99% exactly like I had invisioned :) And it's so pretty xD

Here's some symbolism to go with it:

The Cardinal: The cardinal makes a fantastic animal totem. It reminds us to hold ourselves with pride - not ego pride. Rather, the cardinal asks us to stand a little taller, be a bit more regal, step into our natural confidence as if we were born to lead with grace and nobility. The crimson cardinal has got some major spunk. He will aggressively defend his territory, and fight attackers with ferocity.

The Calla Lily: ‘Calla’ is Greek for magnificent beauty. Lust and passion. Used in glamor spells for beauty as well as for fertility and necromancy (freaky haha). Symbol of love and attraction. Elegant and sophisticated, Desire and bravery… you get the gist ;)

Apple blossoms: Are ideal symbols of love, youth, beauty and happiness. In terms of color symbolism, the pink color, which is a modified red, encourages action, motion, courage and passion. Pink is also gentler and more appropriate for healing. Pink can be used in art symbolism to relieve depression. Renewal of strenght. The secondary symbolism of apple blossoms is the fire energy associated with the pink color. Fire connotes warmth, passion and relationships. Fire creates enthusiasm. Images with fire symbolism are appropriate for supporting romance and idealistic endeavors.

The Feather is ofc taken from Lana and the poem ‘“Hope” is the thing with feathers’ by Emily Dickinson

The finished - kind of mini - charcoal portrait of JMo :)
Fun doing it, byt the end it smudged everywhere and I almost got annoyed but luckliy I could erase most of it.

Charcoal, colour pencils and a touch of a red marker.
Crazy Cool JMo by KatBjorky
Crazy Cool JMo
Saw this pic of her and just thought it would be fun to do with charcoal :)
I'm using coloured pencils too for the finer details (because it's me and I kinda need the details lol)

It's a smaller drawing, not even A4 so it's going pretty quick I guess (a few hours last night and then on and off all of today) so I hope I'll finish it by tonight :P

Charcoal can be pretty fun!

ps. is it just me or does red text just remind you of Barabara Kruger, whom I really love btw - her work is brilliant!
love the colour combination of white, red and black!
HERE be none of Beauty's daughters
With a magic like Thee;
And like music on the waters
Is thy sweet voice to me:
When, as if its sound were causing
The charméd ocean's pausing,
The waves lie still and gleaming,
And the lull'd winds seem dreaming:
And the midnight moon is weaving
Her bright chain o'er the deep,
Whose breast is gently heaving
As an infant's asleep:
So the spirit bows before thee
To listen and adore thee;
With a full but soft emotion,
Like the swell of Summer's ocean.

 - Lord Byron

Your Gallery is a treasure trove of amazing Once Upon a Time deviations.  madizzlee and I just started watching the show -- though, unconventionally since we're not watching from the beginning -- and we've been sharing OUaT deviations back-and-forth.  Your work definitely grabbed our attention, in the very best way.  Awesome work.  :star:
