Portrait of Corostomir: Character Art for Kindred of the Sea

Today I'm featuring a portrait of Corostomir that was sketched in pencil by an artist friend of mine, and which I scanned and digitally colored. Corostomir is the primary Point-of-View character of my up-coming release, Kindred of the Sea, and you can see the Cover Reveal for that here. Corostomir is the asexual partner of …

Character Art of Lyan and Shobura from Sorceress of the Dryads

I got a real computer graphics program - GIMP - in late December of last year. Since then, I've been exploring how to use it and make various kinds of art with it. This is my first time doing character art (as opposed to monster art), as well as my first time (successfully) making a …

Character Art of Noren and Elninya (Art for the Return of the Dragonriders Trilogy

I made this picture of Noren and Elninya with a friend (who drew the man for me, since I am really bad at drawing humans) a while ago. It matches this picture of Silmavalien and Minth. Noren found Elninya's egg shortly after Silmavalien found Minth's, but Elninya did not hatch until much later (just as …

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 …

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. It's not as perfect as some of my Artbreeder portraits, but it's pretty good. So, here is Lìrulin, mother of Tara-lin and friend of dryads, …

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 …

Hello! Today I present to you a lovely piece of art done by Lupus Astartis from Twitter (I won this one in an art raffle) of Tara-lin, the half-elf Singer of the Legend of the Singer (Children of the Dryads and Sorceress of the Dryads). Tara-lin is the half-elf daughter of Eldor, a Valor Knight, …
