Cadvan and his laydees by thrombosis-leopard Cadvan and his laydees by thrombosis-leopard
Four characters from Alison Croggon's superb fantasy series, the Books of Pellinor (or something like that). So there's Cadvan, a rather tragic man, and Maerad in the lower left corner- she's the other main character. Then in the top left is his dead lover Ceredin, and in the right corner is Nerili, who we *think* is another ex-lover of his.
Done in graphite.

This is amazing! I love it. Cadvan looks close to what I imagined him. So does Maerad.

I am really glad I found this picture. You drew Maerad and Nerili just as I imagined them from the books. In some pictures Maerad seems a little too fancy for a girl who travels so much. And I love the picture of Cadvan. You drew him just as handsomely as I would imagine him being. :D

Ooooh, this is wonderful. I just finished the Singing... I agree with the jellious look in Maerads eyes ... Just thinking about Maerad and Cadvan makes me want to squeel!!!!

I'm not sure if you meant this, but I love the almost jealous look in Maerad's eyes. So good ^_^ Cadvan looks a lot like I imagined him as well. He's such a puzzle xD

Yeah! This is wonderful. Nerili is done exactly as I imagined her! You've inspired me to do a Pellinot piece! Check my gallery for one coming soon.

I'm sure it wont be nearly as good as this though.

I pictured Cadvan quite similar to how you've drawn him, well done!

it's amazing! you're great with detail, and I love how you drew Ceredin, just how I imagined her.

Oh I love this picture. It's amazing what you can do with graphite!
Maerad's har is beautiful...really realistic.
Probably just a personal thing but I think Cadvan looks a bit like Tom Hanks?! Maybe?! haha.
Keep up the great workl =] x

Wicked awesome! Yes, that is the perfect Maerad! ^-^ I love how you drew them all. They look so...wonderfully excellent! ^-^

That's an absolutely perfect interpretation of the way I see Maerad. I've seen others, but for me this must be the best.

I really admire your talent for character design. They just all look...right. :)

thank you very much! i have to admit that i find visualising characters somewhat difficult; you'll notice that none of my current four interpretations of Maerad look the same! ;)
But I try. Thanks for the favourites!!
