Tenebrific, word art by Amy Crook

Tenebrific: causing gloom or darkness,
5″x7″ pen & ink and watercolor on paper

One of my lovely Patreon patrons asked for this word as her art prompt this month, and so I used it for last Wednesday’s word art.

In anime, when misfortune has come to a character they draw blue lines from their hairline down their face to show it, and this lovely lovely violet-black Japanese watercolor echoes that by drawing down the gloom in long lines. The figure below is in the blue-black from the same palette, ghostly and gloomy, carrying its own darkness within.

If you want art made just for you, you can support me on Patreon — request your own sketches for as little as $5 a month!
