Galdrakver (‘Little Book Of Magic’)

The ‘Little Book Of Magic’ is a seventeenth-century Icelandic manuscript, written on animal skin and containing magical staves, sigils, prayers, charms and related texts.

It is known to have once been owned by Icelandic Bishop Hannes Finnson who was alive from 1739 until 1796 and known for having a vast library containing many volumes of magic related texts and manuscripts.

Full manuscript here.

Silhouettes II

idols over the years aka pale ladies with dark hair and dark clothes ftw

// me and my sister were playing guessing game with our favourite characters and i realized that mine are mostly bw goth-ish looking, so i started sketching just because why not and suddenly there was more and more of them
those signs don’t make much sence, it just felt like something should be written there, but writing just names seemed silly, so, eh…

Black dog, get off my back…

i wanted to try graphite powder on this one, in hope that soft shading of big areas will be quicker…. But i don’t know if i bought some shitty powder (only that it was the only art powder i found in stores), or i’m doing it wrong, because it’s impossible to make it darker, it does only really really light shading so i need to add layer in pc anyway. Pencil shading still works better, but it takes sooo much time.
