This piece is the cover to my upcoming second piece of Mindfang fanfic, "Condemnation". Picking up a few months (lunar perigees, if you prefer) after where the events of "Beautiful Jewel" left off, this tale covers the meeting between Marquise Spinneret Mindfang and the Legislacerator dispatched to bring her to justice, Neophyte Redglare. Other characters that play a role in this story include Doc Scratch and his Handmaid, Damara Megido, as well as the former E%ecutor (now E%patri8), Darkleer (or Horuss Zahhak). Another character the I've introduced is an original, Felida Oceleo, who I've written as Mindfang's oliveblood First Mate (or second-in-command of her Gamblignant fleet). She has obviously had an accident of some kind based on her cybernetic limbs; you'll have to read the story once I release it to find out how it happened...
Lynnai wanted to amp up the realism in the faces even more so than last time, and I think this was a heck of a job. Redglare's expression fits the idea of blackrom beautifully, while trying to get smaller figures (these characters in the front row are physically about 5-6" each) to look as real as possible as well. We are thrilled to feature the one and only
as the body model for Damara! I hope she feels we were able to do her justice! The "majyyks" on her wand were created with gelpens but the rest of the picture is, as always, coloured pencils. It was a challenge getting Darkleer's black "Tron" suit to look like a suit! The wood, like that on "Duo Deae" was created by laying down white pencil crayon to make the weaves and knots, and then colouring over it with browns to create the weathered effect.
This piece took about 40 hours of work over the last month. We sure hope you enjoy it!
