Lady Mordarante by Caelicorn Lady Mordarante by Caelicorn
I did this illustration for my dear dear friend Dracs. The character belongs to her, and is an unseelie noble. You can see a larger version and closeups here: [link]

I also upload my cgsociety portfolio first, so that is where all the new stuff will appear ;-)

This is published in Exotique 6, and recently, in the Art of Isis Sousa and friends.

Edit: Wow! Thank you for the DD =^_^= that has inspired me to get my A into G and finish some more stuff to upload for you! I really appreciate it and did not expect it! Such a wonderful surprise and I am very honoured xxoxo!!

The Suggester said: "Simply put, Lady Mordarante by *Caelicorn is absolutely stunning! Wonderful details and softness makes the colours glow in an eerie light!". I totally agree, it's one of most impressive portraits I've seen recently. The light, style and details are just awesome! ( Suggested by phoenixleo and Featured by Atramina )

THIS is a wonderful piece of art, the colours are magnifique and the use of light and shadows make a perfect contrast as beautiful as the contrast between her dark hair and light blue eyes.

I couldnt imagine how long might have taken you to paint something so graceful but you did a great job. I am amazed when I see so pristine and detailed artwork! 
Aplauses! Clap Clap Clap Clap Clap

The vibrant, dazzling color makes the portrait pop, but it's her expression, the luminous flesh texture, and your composition that really leave me in awe here--the details are delicately rendered, but the don't take over the picture. This is a woman of sublime confidence and power. The fact that she's gorgeous increases that power--which makes her all the more dangerous; her flared ruff might be a threat display done in lace. Given the shadows skittering across the landscape, even the vivid splashes of color on her person read as displays of power...as exhibits of the fact that she's in complete control of her environment. Superbly, masterfully done. Brava.

It's no wonder this piece is so deserving of a DD and pride of place on your front page. It has to be my favourite piece in your gallery because the colour palette looks like it was made up of hues from a galaxy. All those amazing shots of far away solar systems seem to have these unearthly colours too and it makes this piece really stand out.

That... and the fact that you have a bird in there. Hee, I love birds more than any other creature. :)

:-o even more than cats???

Thanks ;-)! That is a wonderful comment and does touch on my whole crazy colour scheme. I liked mashing it into the old fashion style, it sort of seemed to breathe something else into it.

Back to birds though - I like birds too. I just saw the Big Bang Theory episode where Sheldon is terrified of a bluejay. I've never really seen one of those before - theyre gorgeous. Next fancy noble I draw with a little pet will get one, or a fantasy variation thereof.

I hope you are doing well!

Late reply is late! Well spank me with a baseball bat and call me Nellie! How rude of me, how rude! XD

Even more than cats? Quite possibly so! :D

And I certainly meant everything I said; it's a gorgeous piece and I still love it!

Also, in that case, I'm very much looking forward to your next portrait! I'd be sad if there wasn't at least one bluejay now! XD

Well, yes, a bluejay would look fantastic in my collection. I admit to a fascination with her - I love a strong female character, and her non stick-figure body type!
