Colouring ...

First of all I like to warn that once again updates here will be unregular due to busy times for me. That said ...

Two gorgeous colourings done by Xewonyan. You can discover more of her work at deviantART: http://xewonyan.deviantart.com/ The images she chose to colour are from Cassandra Jean. The original works can be found here: http://fabt.livejournal.com/130686.html And here: http://fabt.livejournal.com/128593.html

Gorgeous, no? Even the two landscapes seen through the windows have gotten proper attention and weren't just quickly colored in. I love especially the light that falls through the windows and illuminates the stage and the two throne occupants and also the red bit here and there as they remind me of the colour of blood which is fitting for this scene if you think about what is going on and what all has been sacrificed to get to this point. Really wonderful done.

Such soft colours to accent the sweetness and intimacy of the moment. The light green background works so well with Tessas's light pink gown. Gorgeous!


Downworlders ...

A work from FrkGullfisk whose work is available for you on deviantART: http://frkgullfisk.deviantart.com/

The Queen looks so young here, no? Just as she is described as in the books. Blue pools of light as eyes making it seem as if she can indeed see everything. Present, past and future. No secret is safe to her. Full, rose petal lips. A fair skin without a single impurity. Rich golden red hair with white foxgloves woven into it. Poisonous flowers and known in old myths for being used by fairies as gloves and hats. Fitting though for her, no? Poisonous ... Just as she is. A true beauty but a false one and I can't help but get that impression here as I look at this drawing. This beauty is unnatural. Defenitely one of my favourite works for the Seelie Queen.

And this one is from walkingnorth. Her fantastic art can be seen on tumblr: http://walkingnorth.tumblr.com/

Honestly, just the fact that this is Raphael already makes me like the drawing. There just isn't that muc Raphael art out there, or I am just looking aorund in places where he doesn't get that much attention, LOL.
I like the serenety here. Raphael praying and staying in his own way true to his religion. The golden circle behind him gives him an ethereal glow as if he is an angel on whom God's Light shines. And notice also his golden cross on his neck. This drawing makes me feel as if Raphael died and enters here Heaven, being forgiven for all his sins and getting a new chance. It is pretty.
