Through a Mirror Darkly

Friday, December 30th, 2011

For Drake! It’s Rowan, Alysandir and The Angels re-imagined with a darker Victorian twist, a la League of Extraordinary Gentlemen:


(Larger version here.)

From the left, we have: Max, the mad scientist; Ria, the heiress who funds the team’s exploits; Beth, turned into a vampire but still the group’s protector; Rowan, the enchantress; and Alysandir, the hard-core monster hunter currently under Rowan’s thrall.

One of the coolest concepts (and possibly the most detailed portrait) that I’ve gotten to work on so far. ♥

Lovers’ Portrait

For Drake! It’s the charismatic heroine and her bodyguard (whom we’ve met before) — now in 75% less perilous circumstances:

Step 1: Steal Underpants

With dragons and other distractions averted, they now have time to become better acquainted. ^^

This was a ton of fun to shade. And once again, in the course of working on it, I discovered a few new coloring tricks and techniques — including the wonders of Gradient Maps! Oh, Gradient Maps, how did I ever paint skin tones without you?

(…By the way, is this suggestive enough to be NSFW? Should I add an “implied nudity” warning? I am never sure about these things!)

Rowan and Alysandir

For Drake! A heroine and her bodyguard, celebrating an adventure well accomplished:

Rowan and Alysandir

This was a challenging but very satisfying commission. (I learned at least two or three new coloring/texturing techniques in the process, too.)

Alas, most of the detail is invisible at screen resolution. But it looks good at printable size, where it counts!

(And in case you were wondering about the scene in the background: the heroine wields ice magic.)
