Welcome to Fare off Visions

~ Bidding farewell to reality - Visions of far off worlds~

NEW!  Find me on facebook https://www.facebook.com/yasaoart and on tumblr as well http://yasaoart.tumblr.com/

Hello, dearest traveller. It’s good to see that your path through the tangle of the world wide web led you here.
You’re one step away from entering foreign worlds – worlds I only revealed to a few so far. But do not fret – there’s nothing to fear. It is a world where fantasy rules and where everything is possible.

On this website you will encounter many a strange creature and if you’re lucky, they’ll tell you their tales. I hope you enjoy your stay and you will like what you see.

Well then, let me open the gates for you – enter this world, my world.

(Fare off Visions is a creative blog, all written and illustrated by me, an aspiring artist and writer called Yasao. Here you’ll find all kinds of artworks –finished and unfinished– and some information about the characters of my upcoming novels.)

Making of "How dangerous could it be?"

 Hello everyone :) It's been a while that I posted something here, but I'm back with yet another intriguing „Making-of“ post for you! We've had watercolors last time, alcohol markers (Copics) before that and today it's going to be all about colored pencils, a kind of medium I don't work with all that often and I'm still learning to use properly myself *laughs* I included not only WIP photos, but also a close look on how I create depth by layering various colors.

 The picture in itself is something very special to me as well and you'll find out more about why and what it's all about, too in today's post. So please, go on reading if you like :)

Making of "Levant Shandaer"

Good day, dear friends and readers :)  I am very excited to present today's "Making of" post to you, as it's about a painting which means so much to me and I will admit that it's also one I am rather proud of.

As some of you may know, I participated in the OC Anthology artbook project , a book dedicated to "original characters", created by many wonderful artists. The character I chose for this artbook is one of my most beloved ones, the half-elven bard Levant Shandaer from my novel Broken.

In this article you will see how much planning and work is behind the final version that finally made it into the printed artbook. Please enjoy - and do feel free to comment.

Making of "Takio Kadan"

Greetings, my dear readers ♥ I'm back, with yet another "making-of" post, showcasing the creation of one of my most recent aceos, this time starring my sweet OC, the one and only Taki--- err, Hidetomo *laughs*
This handsome mage from my novel Broken is quite distinctive, thanks to his pretty markings, his yellow eyes and his fondness for folding fans, as well as kimono - but this time, I thought of something special. Instead of drawing the patterns for the fabric, I created them using origami-paper, using a technique I learned from a friend.
