Natural Magic by MeredithDillman Natural Magic by MeredithDillman
Medium: Watercolor
Size 6x10?

Kyrn is a character I began writing and drawing in high school. I was asked to redraw her by someone who had a seen a much older picture. Originally she had dark hair and the white came about once when I decided I really liked a drawing in an unfinished state. Long, long ago, Gargoyles was my first fandom so Kyrn herself had gargoyle wings in one form.

My ideas have changed a lot since then with every painting, and now I associate her with magic, life, growth, change, and ivy. The title this time was surprisingly easy because there wasn't anything else it could be.

If you've read my comic she's in there a little bit so far [link]

Some older paintings: [link] , [link] and a couple more here [link]

I really like the hair in this picture. It seems like it has a life of its own. Of course it could just be my weakness for drawings of people with silver or white hair.

I think this character inspired me to have a very interesting dream about 2 fairy families, a mean witch and a lowly wizard.

I've always really loved the images of this character. She really stands out from your other stuff as a subject you obviously love. Her color scheme is just to die for and I love the detail of the ivy.

I am a HUGE gargoyles fan. Glad to see the fandom is alive out there!

That's the odd thing, interesting to paint, not so interesting to write since my other characters have pretty much taken over :)
