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).

I could only stay the one day (yesterday, that is), and didn't come back with as much loot as I could have... but hey, I'm on a tight budget, what's with Edinburgh in August and all. ^_^;

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.

I know, I know, those of you who follow me on dA/FB/Tumblr/Twitter hhave seen it already. But hey, I like to brag. Especially after months of barely being able to hold a pencil and do anything remotely 'creative'. :P

This is a tentative cover for "Was", or, rather, for its first volume:


In terms of design, if you feel there's an imbalance of sorts on the right and bottom sides, it's normal: I used the pocket book template provided by LuLu in order to place the various elements on the cover, and these sides correspond to bleed areas, that get cut after printing. So I can't include any important element in those. I don't know if I'll go with Lulu in the end, but I know that this design will allow me some leeway if I decide on a slightly different format in the end.

Was wasn't supposed to be a trilogy or whatever, but it's just so complex that it's either crapping up a 2000-page monster, or dividing it in something more manageable. Since I'd really like to publish it in ebook format, and perhaps even on LuLu or any other print-on-demand platform, I think it's best if I consider the practical aspect before I finish writing a 1-volume beast, and then find myself going all "oh noes". For the moment, if you want to read the new (and, hopefully, improved) version, you can either do so on Wattpad: http://www.wattpad.com/11151858-was (which is going my teaser-page more than a whole publishing place), or by sending me your e-mail address (for Google Drive, where you'll get more chapters).

And a damn high time it was, because I really don't like being in a lull art-wise, especially since said lull is likely the product of depression rather than of lack of subjects to draw.

Yeah, it's Ewan. Again. No surprise for you guys, I suppose, but quite one for me, because I didn't think he'd be the one I'd start drawing about. I had started another picture a few days ago, but then I went with the spur of the moment and did the little thing below.

Besides, drawing half-naked sexy boyz should be a requirement in therapy, even if they look depressed. No, really, I mean it. ;)

Wonderful birthday gifts from the lovely ANIMAfelis on dA.

The first one stemmed from a private joke, complete with mock conversation, about the concept of "Strip-Tetris" (yeah, no kidding), and features Ewan & Nick (the artist's own "Mage" character).

The second one features my Hermetist character, Irena Angendijk Van den Haag, and was commissioned by my good friends in Strasbourg. (Since I was also given thee high-res file, I'll definitely get this one printed as a poster to hang in my living-room!)

Two days after these pictures were unveiled, I am still in awe, and drooling everywhere.

After spending a whole day working on English grammar, there's nothing more pleasant than finding a nice surprise like this one... And once again by my lovely friend on dA. :D (It makes me feel even more to be done with those Agrégation oral exams, so that I can finally go back to drawing—more specifically, on the pictures I still owe to a few people.)

This is Sarah Valentine from Shadow Nexus (normal world version), weaving her magic in her Bedlam cell.
So. Frigging. Fitting.

Stuff that, as usual, was sitting half-completed on my hard drive. So I just slapped some vague shading and a texture, and there. At least now I can say I "drew" something in March. ;)
(No, really, I wanted to draw and post something... only with the Agrégation in 9 days, I'm too restless to sit down and work on something better for hours in a row. I preferred to 'finish' a very basic picture, though, rather than not touch my Intuos for a full month!)

I think I won't even comment on these two anymore. I'm so predictable in my themes these days. XD (But, hey, they ARE cute together!
