The Water Mage had been the first in the series of mages I drew. I believe this is a 2016 or 2017 piece, but it’s been a long time since I checked.
I drew her with Copic markers and fine line pens on Strathmore sketch paper and made her into 4 x 6-inch mini-prints. She ( and a few other mages) were part of a series, which I printed for conventions. She and the others are now out of print. But who knows? I may put her in an art book later.
For now, she’s available as a hi-resolution download! But only for Ko-Fi supporters and Patreon patrons. I’ve been posting hi-res downloads for supporters, and I plan on keeping that up.

Now, what surprises me is when I share art like this, some folks will say this is made with watercolors. It isn’t. This is Copic markers – my favorite art tool in the history of ever.
Expect a mini-print soon on Storenvy featuring this little pixie of a mage. You can check out the Fire Mage and Water Mage in this post.
