Nathyre Leader

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Hannah-Beth Carter

Not to be confused with the very snake-like Yuan-Ti, the Nathyre are a race created by an extremely jealous goddess who punished a lover who cheated on her by ensuring he kept his handsome good looks, but giving him the body of a snake: ensuring that any woman who could fall for his charms would flee at the first sight of what lay below the waist and wrists. :3 (Yes, I know how that sounds... :P ) This is the leader of one small clan of Nathyre. he believes that by acting as humanly as possible, the humans in a nearby village will come to accept them and possibly trade with them. I guess what doesn't lay in his favour is the fact that the Nathyre seem to have an inbuilt taste for human flesh... Another picture I did at work, but I really like it. Although it does rather show that I don't often draw men with facial hair... All done with mechanical pencil, trying out a new technique for the scales of his snakey body. I think my love of scythes shows through a little clearly...

The Meeting

This started out as a random idea that slowly developed into something more. It seems that Dew and Rever's relationship works a little better once taken from high fantasy and transplanted into a modern setting.

Caria's Painting

I actually wrote this as an 'example roleplay' piece for a supernatural-themed board. As I wrote, it turned into this short story (and as it happens, I was also accepted). Modern vampires are a perennial favourite of mine.
