Please welcome the actor, Artemy Burakh!
A doodle request I got from my Instagram. Dib know he can derail the situation by embarrassing Zim, and has used it many times to save his own tail.
Posting my very fist finished illustration of Klokić, a forest spirit from my family’s forgotten story.
I took it upon myself to design him and write a new story about him which I will turn into an illustrated children’s book for my graduation project.
I will only publicly upload illustrations that are not part of the book itself for now, as these standalone illustrations are still just my preparation for the real deal.

And we’re back to medieval Princesses with this trek to The Black Cauldron. BUT this time we’re talking about Wales in the Early Medieval (pre-Normandy, post-Rome) Era.
Prydain, of course, didn’t/doesn’t exist but we do know that Lloyd Alexander based his fantasy series on Welsh mythology, themes, names, etc. And also based his world geography on Wales, but it’s not a 1:1 deal. All of which is fantastic information, this should be soooo simple- nope. Wales has a long & well-written history, the things I found while doing research were fascinating. But before I found the good information I had to wade through so much “Wales was also there, here’s a map”. Wales to this day apparently is still seen as the backwater cousin of Britton. It was bizarre. Because I’d listen to a professor give a quick lecture on how ancient Welsh standing stones were written in 3 languages & how there were propaganda gravesites & pilgrimage destinations…. and then website after website just… not having any information that wasn’t related to Vikings or Picts.
Luckily for me places like Youtube are designed for this kind of discourse so I popped over & was immensely pleased to find The Welsh Viking who just so happened to be angry at the very same thing. Wales has all these interesting things going on but it’s hand-waved over even in Reenactment communities because of the lack of costuming evidence. Okay I’m streamlining we could be here all day… but go watch his video he has textbooks on architectural finds in Wales & a lot of good points I learned a lot. Perhaps most directly he was able to point me to museum.wales & the Llangors Crannog, an archeological site where they found the Llangors Textile. The ONLY recovered Welsh textile. Why? Because the British Isles in general have very acidic soil so… textiles not in the Bog don’t do well. The Llangors Textile has this beautiful silk embroidery from belt-loop to hem. This cements for us that Wales had money, trade, international connections, all of it. It just doesn’t have more evidence aside from architecture & stones so it gets sidelined.
Anyway - how did I create designs for this? I used the Llangors Textile to create a pattern. And I used the knowledge that Ireland is a) close and b) a lot of the standing stones in Wales have names, titles or letters that are in Irish Gaelic/ Ogham. From there I surmised that my best bet was to create silhouettes & designs that were based on general British & Irish clothing/fashion & then to use the movie colors to create a rich, heavily embroidered textile/kirtle that hopefully isn’t too out of left-field. And apparently Ireland was big into long, unbound blonde hair with circlets sooooo… Princess Hair it is! ;)
This turned into an essay I’m so sorry.
