May I present you Hellenia Fon Kourt. Baroness of my heart, Princess of my thoughts, Queen of my Life. Hellenia is a white witch with blue dress. She has three magic items. In her crystal ball can see the future dangers. Her magic necklace detects the nearby enemies and her magic sceptre creates a powerful shield around her party. She has a lot of physical and magical abilities but she is devoted to Paladin Spirous Fon Kourt (yes its me).

I have created this picture using pencils for the sketch with a puzzle of photos. For the face of Hellenia I have used one photo of my lovely wife with her permission. I finished it with Photoshop CS3 using Wacom tablet. Original Size A3.  Finished on  10 January 2008

Nice, almost subdued compared to your other works. But when you have such a pretty lady you really don’t need to go as crazy 12

:-) Spiros Fon Kourtakis replies: "Thanks again Dave. You are right this is subdued because I like my wife in dress when she is in the woods. "

What a beauty!
The picture is great too! A great example of your recent pieces of art. And having seen the original subject I can say that this picture is very life-like.

:-) Spiros Fon Kourtakis replies: "I think that the "subject" should be very pleased after your comment!!!"

Hahahaha, well, I’m certain that the AD&D companies don’t go running around looking for new illustrators...maybe it’s up to you to do show them samples of your work12

:-) Spiros Fon Kourtakis replies: "Thanks Bojana you always have very very very interesting ideas!!!"

Beautiful! Can I borrow her dress?? *looking around* hey I have been here before! *lol*

:-) Spiros Fon Kourtakis replies: "I am very sorry Saskia I protect my wife (and her dress) with my big, huge, long .... broadsword.
Anyway I am very happy to see you again!!!"

This is my favourite in your gallery; the face is really well done! You ought to try your hand with more portraits; the realism adds to your work!

:-) Spiros Fon Kourtakis replies: "Thanks for your constructive comment Helle. I believe that the faces are the center of my paints and I give them special attention!!!"

Ok!! read everyones comments and loved them all :2) Thank you very much for your kind words and for supporting my husband. I have to admit that my husband has a great talent in drawing (and other things!!!) and one of the things I keep on telling him is that he should draw more portrets and heros with......clothes :2)))!!!!
I totally agree with Kelly Hogan and is something I have asked from him to do.......

:-) Spiros Fon Kourtakis replies: "Oh my lovely Queen of my thoughts, beautiful Partner of our life-adventure I welcome you! I promise you after finishing my current works I will make a composition with two of us save the world from the evil!!!

P.S. We live in sunny Greece why ask about more clothes?"
15 Feb 2008:-) Bojana Dimitrovski
1D cool, you’re right about Greece...but it’s not always summer there1
looking forward to updates...

:-) Spiros Fon Kourtakis replies: "It is not about weather Bojana!!!
Thanks again for visiting me!!!"

She’s lovely! And her dress, so pretty. ^____^ I want a dress like that.

:-) Spiros Fon Kourtakis replies: "I am sorry about that dress, but it belongs to my lovely wife.
and this design is unique!!! Thanks for your lovely comment!!! "

I like this one alot, maybe it is my fave because it is very realistic, and you can tell that this is not just a painting of a person but i painting of a real life character who is believable. I noticed this before i read that it is your wife. You should paint more of her, this is lovely.

:-) Spiros Fon Kourtakis replies: "Me and my wife we appreciate your lovely comment very much indeed. Thanks again Lindzi!!!"
7 Mar 2008:-) A. ~^*Skarbog*^~ den Hollander

:-) Spiros Fon Kourtakis replies: "My wife really likes your comment!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!"
