Russian Tea by CanisAlbus Russian Tea by CanisAlbus
Wanted to try out a bit more heavily stylized way again, for this was originally inspired by Ivan Bilibin's russian fairytale illustrations. I don't think I managed to nail the style all the way, but I still quite like the outcome, especially the tail and the overall swirlyness.

Black Staedtler pigment liner, tea, watercolors.

I love the fact that this is inspired by russian fairytale illustrations and the canine in he picture looks like a Borzoi, otherwise known as a Russian wolfhound :D <--- Oh useless knowledge :'3

And after I saw this it made me want to look the artist up, I really like the fantasy kind of stlye on this picture, and the way the steam from the tea floats up to make the border :)
