Artwork

I know the shading looks bad in pen...

This is my first concept art for Rowan. (I used to have a similar scar on my right cheek, not the left… it faded though. I got it by falling on my face on a dog collar…)

This is supposed to be symbolic. :-P

My first attempt at symbolic artwork. Rowan has prophetic dreams; I attempted to convey that here…

This is perhaps my best drawing yet...

A drawing of Rowan concentrating deeply on a fire spell. Surprisingly, this one didn’t take nearly as long to complete as I feared. Special thanks to Jewel, without whom I would have forgotten the scar on Rowan’s cheek… oh, and if you were wondering, his bad leg is not physically deformed; it was just broken badly and then didn’t heal right. The bones are too weak, so he could very easily break it again, and the muscles are weak as well. Oh, and to those who were wondering… the double-clasp in the other drawing of Rowan is really part of his cloak, NOT his shirt. πŸ˜›

This would really be better if I had Photoshop to work with...

A colored-in version of “Focus,” using Paint… it’s called PAINt for a reason. πŸ˜›

Melilana should appear right here.

Melilana, Queen of Ertraia, preparing a spell.

Invisible queen!

The colored version of the previous drawing. (Purple is Melilana’s favorite color–oh, okay, I just thought it suited her.)

*sigh*

Queen Melilana in her days as a Ranger.

Where, oh where has my artwork gone...

Colored in… Melilana’s not wearing makeup in this one. πŸ˜›

Rowan on a journey.

This is not the best drawing, either… but at least it’s got Rowan in a kilt and moving and isn’t a total flop.

Insert random doodle here...

An early concept for the Ertraian arms. (Obviously, I didn’t select this one. I thought it looked too much like a Thunderbird. :-P)

The final choice...

The final design for the Ertraian arms.

And, the final work...

A colored version of the Ertraian arms. (If anyone wants to slightly redesign it so it looks more elegant, please feel free. Just make sure to tell me about it so I can see it! πŸ˜‰ ) Also, the blog icon now! πŸ˜€

Rowan in his new jacket outfit, pencil on sketch paper. (This is what my ink drawings look like before I ink the lines and erase the pencil.)

Pen on sketch paper, following pencil lines with the pencil erased (the final version!)

  1. love your art work!

  2. Great art work! Love the fire spell! πŸ™‚ Keep going!

  3. Hi! Check out thewayofwabi.wordpress.com to see the redesigned coat of arms under “Obi Wabi”. I’m sorry. I don’t know how to ping back or do any of that fancy stuff. 😦 Feel free to take, leave, colorize or redesign any aspect of it to your personal liking. It’s simply an idea – not a concrete final product. There are no copyrights on any of my art work. I hope I headed in the right direction in terms of embellishment. Let me know your thoughts on it. Thanks! πŸ™‚
