Weekly illustration roundup (3/4-10/4)

I realized I share more illustrations on social media that don’t really get archived on the site in glorious full resolution – so I’ll be doing a regular (depending on the output) post to share the drawings I’ve done throughout the week.

Saint Theophan the Recluse on fasting

To start us off, I did a muted palette illustration of Saint Theophan the recluse.

Here are the inks

Saint Macarius the Great

Given that his feast day was April 1st (in the Coptic church), I illustrated a short-and-sweet quote and used a monochromatic colour palette for it, which I then like and started a series!

Here are some process picture

Saint Isaac the Syrian

One of my favourite saints! I will admit, however, that I’m not too happy with the linework on this one. I wasn’t even happy with the colouring as it was reddish hues at first, but with some Photoshop work I changed it to this bluish hue.
