I’ve been enjoying my hiatus so far by catching up on studies and allowing the muse to wander where she may. This has resulted in some interesting art that doesn’t quite fit in with my Goddess gals, but that’s ok! I thought you all might enjoy it, regardless.
Vicky Pandora hosted an online masquerade ball called the OC Gala, inspired by the over the top fashions of the Met Gala. All original characters were invited to attend with the theme “Vampire Masquerade”! This was the perfect excuse for me to indulge in more fan art of an alternate universe version of my Exalted character, Kalara, who lost herself to the dark side of being a Solar.
The Crucified Dreamer’s Story
Her delighted laughter rings in the ears of those she has marked for death. Many revolutionaries have fallen to her seductions, The Dreamer delighting in watching their ‘beautiful deaths’. All in service of her Deathlord, the Lover Clad in the Raiment of Tears.
For she was once a revolutionary herself, one who dreamed of reform until The Guild crucified her for a murder she did not commit. Between life and death, The Lover saved her, gifting her the power of an Abyssal Deathknight. The Dreamer wears tears in devotion to her Deathlord, her skin the blue of a corpse. Her crucifixion wounds adorned by henna and chain will never heal.
The first painting of The Dreamer for the Gala. After as cool as this came out, I couldn’t resist doing a second image with her full outfit:
And a close-up of The Dreamer’s face because I think this is one of the best faces I’ve drawn in awhile. It seems I have finally mastered the nebulous mystery that is the nose at a 3/4ths angle!
I’ve also released a treat for my Patrons! If you’re pledging at any level, you can see the narrated video timelapse of the creation of this piece in Procreate. This video will become public next month (March 11th), but everyone pledging at any amount here will get to watch it early here!
I hope you enjoy this foray into different territory! I have another painting I hope to feature next month that’s another divergence from the norm here, though March pledges will still be paused now that I remembered to do so.
Then it’s T-minus one month to my shoulder surgery. Eep! I’m not sure what I’ll share here at that point, but perhaps a bit of the writing I plan to do and my progress with my marketing and art classes in the meantime, should I be able enough to write!
Till then, enjoy the Dreamer! And if you’re so inclined, feel free to share with me in the comments what YOUR OC might wear to the Vampire Masquerade!
