Half-elf Tara-lin and Gryphon: Fan Art for Children of the Dryads by Samantha Kroese

Hello everyone! Samantha Kroese made this fan art for Children of the Dryads a while ago, and I just haven't gotten around to sharing it on here until recently! It is such a pleasure to get fan art! So here is Tara-lin with a gryphon. Tara-lin is the half-elf protagonist of Children of the Dryads …

Tara-lin and the Dryad Kalithalias: Art for Sorceress of the Dryads

I've had an idea of doing this scene from Sorceress of the Dryads for a while now. I'm still binging on GIMP, so I made it digitally. This is also the first time I've done a (nearly complete) humanoid face (that's not supposed to belong to something evil) that I'm reasonably satisfied with. Tara-lin is …

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 …

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)

Today, I am showing some concept art I made for Frèlin, the capitol city of Elethri. These are some of my initial pieces learning how to do digital art (made with a program that was not really made for art and that I was already pushing to its limits). Nonetheless, I think they turned out …

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 …

Art of Tara-lin, Half-elf and Singer of the Legend of the Singer Duology

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, …

Portrait of Alis Luela (Art for the Legend of the Singer Duology)

I found Artbreeder and have been playing around on there, seeing if I can get anything that looks like any of my characters, since one thing I can never do is draw a face that looks remotely how I want! The Artbreeder portraits aren't perfect, but this one looks quite a lot like Alis (though …
