Drawn for Spread The Love Day.
The thumbnail links to the drawing on Tumblr, but if you're on dA, you can also view it there: http://yzabel.deviantart.com/art/Elena-and-Russello-385302173 (I filed it under Mature Content, and I'm not sure if you can view those when you don't have a dA account).


Whole story behind the cut )

For my 7th Sea "Journalists' Guild" sourcebook project (and because when inspiration strikes, these days, I let it roll critical damage):

Fiona Claridge, Master Swordsman from the Robertson School—a school that uses a rapier to attack, and a cloak to parry and/or entangle the enemy's sword. A member of the Swordsmen's Guild, this young woman from Avalon is quite a feisty person, but also one attracted to money, with skills and connections related to Kirk's underworld (she's a Scoundrel, not a Hero, anyway).

In the sourcebook, she's meant to be both help and antagonist to the Journalists. Help, because she was quick to jump on the opportunity to lead her own group of swordsmen, for them to be hired as bodyguards as soon as a journalist asks for one (investigating can be a dangerous job sometimes). Antagonist, in that she won't see well to said journalists learning how to wield a sword: if they can defend themselves, then her guys won't be hired anymore, will they? Which means less money for her... (In other words, that's for the GM to decide.)

Not an actual character in our campaign, but one I designed for a free "guild book" I’m currently working on, following the Vendel League's guilds model. (In game, we created a Journalists’ Guild in Kirk, and I found it funny to make an actual PDF out of it.) It's also the reason why this drawing isn't the most detailed ever: I need to make several of those, and if I draw them all in colour and with tons of details, I’ll never stick to it.



In my source book, Neri basically holds a role our characters filled in themselves, due to being quite experienced and full of XP, but that would make them too powerful and jack-of-all-trades if left as is: that of informer. He’s not officially part of the Guild, but has got a lot of connections in Kirk's underworld, and gets paid in exchange for whatever information he gets his hands on—after which the journalists themselves can start investigating. You never know what kind of shady trade that wealthy, renowned Merchant is in, and where his guilders really come from, do you?

Neri’s a Vodacci criminal who was cursed with constant bad luck: for him and for others (Unlucky Arcana Flaw + Foul Weather Jack Background... hence why I gave him that totally inappropriate family name XD). After one too many catastrophes following his antics in Vodacce, Prince Bernoulli put a price on his head if he were to ever set foot in his lands again, and Neri decided to flee... as far as possible... like, he heard the climate was mild in Kirk that year. He’s technically a Villain, but I gave him the Unbound advantage, which means Elena the Strega can’t read him, and so he was given the benefit of the doubt. He's also banned from approaching the printing presses themselves: nobody wants to spend the next two days repairing them.

Because that one has been sitting almost completed on my hard drive for two years, and it was high time I did something with it!

Lily Stone, our Glamour witch & bard from Avalon (ongoing 7th Sea campaign).

And can you guess I'm really trying to get back into the mood for drawing? Even if it has to start with finishing already existing stuff first, rather than starting something anew. Although, speaking of new things, I'm about to start working on a commission... and I also want to do something with this sketch: Vodacce Shall Fall.
