Updated my Tumblr cover image. Would anyone want a print of this?
Happy Mothers’ Day folks
Here’s the model sheet I made for my collaborators. Una’s outfit is not a uniform, so apart from the hat and some sort of armored sleeve, her costume can be changed up from story to story. The kids are of mixed parentage, obviously. Annora is dressed in fairly typical clothes from the dominant culture.
Here’s the art of the female miniature figures being created under the OtherWorld Mini Kickstarter. So awesome to see female figures that aren’t sexualized caricatures or evil demon vampire wenches. They all look super feminine and still tough.
[ Image: A full length of a light skinned woman with long red hair wearing a 4 paneled skirt of scale mail and a midrift-baring black top with a single shoulder guard, one sleeve and scale mail covering her chest. Both her boots and gauntlets are fur-lined leather, and she rests her claymore point first in the ground. ]
She-Devil with a Sword
[ Description: A brightly coloured painting of a young dark skinned girl standing atop a rocky outcrop, dressed in scale male, a blue tabbard and a pink cape that matches her pink and white shield. She holds a sword aloft in her right hand as her long black hair flies on the wind. ]
“This is a painting I did for my little cousin who will soon be going through a bone marrow transplant. I hope that every time she looks at it she will feel brave and strong.”
OH MY GOODNESS
First of all whoever this cousin is, I wish her all the luck in the world. Second of all, OH MY GOSH CAN I HAVE THIS STORY.
[ Image: A colour image of a pale skinned woman from the thighs up, her short blonde hair styled in a vaguely page-boy cut, and dirt smeared across her freckled cheeks. Her garb has an aesthetic somewhere being Viking and Celt, with a deep blue tabbard underneath an ornately detailed brown leather curais and matching pteryges, grey shoulder plates and matching banding over her belly, dark blue scale mail sleeves and collar, and a battered full plate guantlet on her left hand, in which she holds a sword point down. A tan coloured clock is attached by two large gold bosses, and her metal open faced helmet hangs against her shoulder blades. The copper scabbard for her sword hangs from a broad belt decorated with more bosses, while in her hand is a large round shield. The red cloth tied around her left bicep combined with the dirt and wear indicates she has clearly seen — and triumphed through — a fair degree of combat. ]
[ Description: A vibrantly coloured painting of a pale skinned woman with long dark hair partially worn in braids, blue eyes, and a fierce scowl. She wears a magenta dress beneath a gold-tasseled cyan tabbard which is in turn beneath a scalemail bodice. Over this is a gold-trimmed blue cloak and a wolfhide, a gold-buckled leather sword belt, heavy leather guantlets, and a torc around her neck. She leans on a round wooden shield with her left hand, while her right is on the hilt of a viking long sword. A Viking helmet rests at her feet, while behind her is a cross embedded in embers. ]
