Demon of Miscarriages by Oddeum Demon of Miscarriages by Oddeum
Super pleased with how this one came out! I think this is the only one I've done in the past month that I liked.
The colors on this are exactly what I hoped they'd be.

Anyways, this demon is part of a story idea I had, but I'm not sure yet anything about the story other than this horrible creature that follows the main character into his family's garden, and never leaves her place on the bench.

Oh, and I photographed my progress of this to make those tutorials I promised.

EDIT: You guys are so great!! Thanks for the DD!
And special thanks to :icontsukihana: and :iconmoonbeam13: for the suggestion and feature :hug:

Tools: Schmincke horadam watercolors, sepia ink + dip pens, salt, white gel pen, and paintshop

What an interesting painting. I'm not sure which I love more, the details on the scissors or the actual creature!

This demon looks crude and cruel. You chose the colours well, the atmosphere is suitably depressing.

Aw man I just noticed the different baby faces in stone 0_0
I love this idea! And your colors bring that sense of quiet dread as she fiddles with the scissors. And the garden itself looks like a withered shell of its former self.
I love it :love:

I'm glad it takes a bit to notice the faces: I thought they were a little on the nose symbolically, so I tried to obscure it a little so you eye wasn't immediately drawn there.

Thank you very much!

The colours are truly amazing and do harmonise well with the unsettling atmosphere of the whole painting. I especially like the layering of the background, with a reduced presence of every layer, each of which is still variable enough to catch one's interest.
