Eoten by STelari Eoten by STelari

August 2015

Eoten (also ettin, etene, yetun, ytene, yotun), an obsolete English cognate to the Old Norse jǫtunn. Cutting long story short, meaning "giant", give or take, without going deep into the mythologies (which I truly recommend). That term caught my attention when I was watching one of the first episodes of Shingeki no Kyojin, where that word was used instead of the mainstream "titan" (there was some wobbly translating in those subtitles in general). While I think it'd be more interesting to stay with eoten, I suppose people would mostly get quite confused. I haven't seen that term used any more after those early and frantically translated episodes. But I liked it.

The second time I stumbled upon it while I was doing the research for my diploma project (the Norse giants were among the creatures I considered to illustrate). I have no idea what book it was now, I've dug through so many of them... 

So I named this impressive woman Eoten, though she doesn't have anything to do with SnK, obviously. She's a great-grandmother to Shun and that lady that I still haven't named even though I created her like 3 years ago (bravo me) (edit: I felt ashamed so Hoshi finally has a name now). I imagine she is a very badass demon bouncer. And I'm pretty sure she has five husbands.

As for her attire, I've been following a couple of tumblr blogs full of delightful Chinese and Japanese traditional clothes and my brain has been affected. Man, do they look fabulous... This outfit here is an impression that all of those have left in my mind.

Edit: feel free to look up a 
Chinese Han hanfu (:
Tools: Ink, white gel-pen, gold gel-pen on 30 x 42 cm watercolour paper.

Przepiękne, a zarazem straszne! Niesamowicie podoba mi się klimat jaki udało Ci się uchwycić na tej ilustracji.

Cóż za zbieg okoliczności. :D Właśnie słucham Yoshida Brothers... dzięki ich muzyce łatwo mi utrzymać tempo pracy... zwłaszcza jak rysuje dużo detali. :)

Dzięki! Zazwyczaj przy pracy staram się słuchać coś pod własny humor, chyba że się całkiem różni klimatem od ilustracji. Tu akurat to była Dir en grey.

I was wondering, do you know Itchiku Kubota ? he is a japanese artist that made kimonos series. And his works are absolutely fabulous. I'm sure you'll like, so go see it. :3

Yes, I know him. I really like his work. This is more of a Chinese Han hanfu, though (:

I'm lost in all the details of her dress, and the setting looks so interesting *^* It looks like she is in some desolated (but bearer of some magic force) rock desert. I love it~♥
