Finally finished! I’m experiencing some cramps in my hand now due to the long hours I had to spend on this. Haha.
My friend & I have finally come up with the names of our characters. My character’s name is Aazar, the Arabic for "fire" or "light". Her character’s name is Akhet, the ancient Egypt for "flood season".
We have thought about a story in which our characters are twin priestesses, who were blessed by the moon & sun gods since birth. That’s why they also can control the elements, but also explains the strange markings on their foreheads.
Aazar has the control over fire & earth.
Akhet has the control over water & wind.
Even though they are twins, they have differing personalities & point of views regarding living your life.
Aazar takes her duty of her being a priestess extremely serious, therefore trying to protect her family as well as her friends. Whereas Akhet wants to see more of the world & experiencing its beauty, which causes her to abandon her priesthood.
That is where their conflict starts & where their journey through the world begins.
This here maybe is the alternative ending, if the conflict can’t be solved. I thought about their journey failing & getting to a rather unhappy ending a lot.
I hope you’ll enjoy this illustration. ^^
