Portrait of Earnrìl, Elf Friend of Tara-lin, from the Legend of the Singer Duology

I usually do not post this many art posts right on top of each other, but this week end/beginning of the week is special because Sorceress of the Dryads comes out tomorrow! So here is another Artbreeder portrait (though I usually prefer more personalized art) of Earnrìl, Tara-lin's elf friend. Earnrìl is also Tara-lin's oldest …

Towers and Terraces of Frèlin (Art for the Legend of the Singer Duology)

Portrait of Lìrulin, Elf Huntress and Mother of Tara-lin

This is another portrait I made with Artbreeder. This one I photoshopped after taking it off of Artbreeder. Those eyes are my coloring, and the eyebrows have been changed, too.

“And this bread is my flesh which I will give for the life of the world.” “And he shall be called Immanuel, that is, God with us.” 'Many of his disciples when they heard this said, “This is a hard teaching; who can accept it?”' What is the hard teaching? I ask everyone who reads …

Portrait of Eldor, Human Father of Tara-lin (Art for the Legend of the Singer Duology)

I have been making a lot of portraits with Artbreeder and getting better at them. This one was originally supposed to be Se'lorn, someone Eldor once knew, but when I saw it I knew at once that was Eldor! So it may not be perfect, but it is pretty good. Also, this is Eldor as …
