And I now present to you, the cake for this year! Yes, it's that time of year again - time for another stunning birthday cake. I've had a lovely birthday - thank you to all you who sent me wishes.
This year I decided not to bend to the whim of my audience. I gave a huge amount of thought to who I should do, but my options varied from characters I would have to use copious amounts of dark chocolate for (yuck) to huge groups of characters I couldn't pick one person for. So in the end, I decided to do one of MY characters: Krystal Ashby. She's the protagonist of my story, Gemwing
, which many of you may know I've been working on for about seven years now. I've posted bits and pieces of artwork here, but if you want to know more about the story and the characters, head over to the Gemwing Tumblr page
which is only maintained slightly better than this deviantart account.
But there are a lot of scraps that go up there, and some exclusive bits and pieces. Plus, I might draw you a picture if you follow it.
I'm not very sorry I didn't draw anything mainstream. It's my birthday, after all.
It took me about 5-6 hours to decorate this one.
If you're interested in the technique, I made a tutorial which can be found here: [link]
