Queen Vena

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

I swear, she's an elf. I just...uh...forgot to paint her ear in. It was in the original sketch. Honestly. I don't know where it went.  Ahem. At any rate, this is Queen Vena rac Mazama, my main character. She had a pretty rough childhood and when the first heir to the throne died in an accident, followed a year later by the present ruler, Vena ran away. She was found by a white haired woman who called herself Silver. Silver helped Vena by making sure she could take care of herself, work magic, make it from one day to the next, etc. Perhaps the most important thing Silver did was show Vena what exactly she had inherited anyways. This picture probably takes place after Vena accepted her role as queen.  Drawn from scratch in Corel Painter Essentials 4 and the GIMP (a kind of open source photoshop). Reference photo credit to Faestock, background photo taken by me. I spent way too long working on this and it's my first decent computer painting on my mac. :)

A Mother's Wish

The possible prologue to something that may be written if I figure out who the main character should be. If anyone reads this, which would you like to know more about? The baby or her mother? Neither? This scene is one of the most painful moments for poor Atsu, featured in my gallery by far too many of her aliases. I actually have many updated drawings, but upgraded to larger paper size! My scanner only handles 8.5x11 paper, though, so I may need to see if I can persuade my camera to take some proper pictures of my recent works...
