forgot to upload this here too!
for all y'all who use dA still and not just tumblr like me xD
I did the album art for the Dolorosa's song from the new Tomb of the Ancestors album ([link]
I wrote some commentary about why I drew it and why I drew this specifically on tumblr. You can go read it there if you are interested in a little background on this piece [link]
This was a huge challenge artistically! My mom and I puzzled over some fabric trying to figure out how the heck drapery like that veil/cloth thing would even work! The colors and background were a specifically challenging element as well! I really wanted it to be good track art, where you would be able to recognize it at a glance on an mp3 player or computer or something else. And I wanted the picture as a whole to feel like the Dolorosa's character, which I imagine as being solemn and peaceful
The song ended up beautiful! I didn't actually get to hear ANY of it until the album was released, so I'm really glad that kali and I were on roughly the same wavelength about her
I hope you all like it! I was an honor and a privilege to get to do this. I'm so grateful ;w;
