This is my first complete computer-painted picture.  I did it in Paint Shop Pro, from a sketch I did around a year ago.  I've been working on it on and off for about two months. During that time, I did a lot of fiddling around in PSP and acquiainting myself with the program.  I'm quite pleased with the results. :)

Caisus den Asten is a character of mine.  You can get to know him more thoroughly in my writings section.  He appears first in chapter three.  He is a diplomat serving King Athaine of Magtara.  He is also a mage, and as such, he is part of a small, magical secret society founded by the King. 

 I know his hair looks weird--it's weird because I decided not to use a reference.  (I definately will next time! >.<)  His clothing came out looking more regency era than Victorian era, but as a fantasy writer, my anachronisms are tolerated.  Close enough! XD

I greatly appreciate comments and constructive criticism. :)

Ooooh! So this is Caisus. I love seeing illustrations!! Especially when they’re by the author. Then I get the idea of how the character’s creator imagined them. 1 Great job! I have to ask my sister to do all of my illustrations. I’m a horrible artist, unfortunately. :/ But you certainly don’t have that problem. Though I do have to agree that his hair looks pretty strange....
