Nicolas Ravenhair Elvenhøi

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Ah! Finally I have managed to portray one of the characters of my most recent story! Or- the IDEA is rather old, but it was just one of this days I digged it up from the stormy back of my head and came up with the whole plot. Okay, so this picture may not appear to be fantasy at the first glance, but consider: is it normal to pose for a painting three hundred years after your own death? In short, my lovely little Nicolas is a ghost. The main person of the story is actually his younger brother Alexander (the late Alexander Elvenhøi, mind you) and a girl named Susanne, but Nicolas proves to be pretty important too. He appeares the first time as Susanne (a good girl which just happens to be so unfortunate that she has red hair, freckles and is nice to everyone) paints this portrait in a kind of trance. And she has never even seen him before! Problem is that death - and being a ghost - has teared all his sanity away. When I think about it, he acts much like he had got Alzheimers. Alexander figures out that he must have had a huge mentally breakdown just before he got murdered, and so his soul kept on in a kind of auto. This drawing was made after I doodled some faces in a scetchbook, and I thought: 'Well, why not make the same portrait as Susanne does? I mean, he is CUTE!' In this drawing however, most of the cuteness is strapped away, and he's more... posing than being himself (he's quite girlish, in fact). I think this was how his father told him to look. It's pretty sad, because the two of them misunderstands each other so utterly, and stil they were pretty much alike...
