Astasia's betrotal portrait by Syene Astasia's betrotal portrait by Syene
Well, this is one of the Characters of my favourite series, tears of Artamon. I really like the fantasy goes political aspect since it gives the story more diversity. It has everything; Romance, Demons... you name it, Sarah Ash has it. And she writes with such talent! You can't put the book down until you've read the last page. And two more additional books are on the way! One follows a minor character and the other one is like... THE AFTERMATH! I can't wait to get my hands on that last one :D

Well, about the portrait, This is Astasia Orlov, and she's the girl the lead character falls in love with first. He's a painter and commisioned to do her betrothal portrait, though he doesn't finish it, his mother does.

This is my first time using painter seriously, so It was a little bit of experimenting, but thanks to good tutorials I managed :D I don't think this is the final piece but for now... It's good enough.

Tears of Artamon and related contents are of Sarah Ash
Picture is of moi

Okay, I can't resist to ask this any more. I find her eyes and pose to be really enchanting, so I'm wonder if it's okay with you if I make a similar version based on my own Astasia fanart: [link] ?

Wow, I really like your drawing! Truth is, I don't draw anymore :( (I just doodle a bit,nowadays). However, I think that if you give it time, you'll be able to do it yourself. I just took a peek at your gallery and I can see a lot of improvement already! I'm really sorry to dissapoint you :(. if you decide to give it a shot, please let me know. I'm really interested in the outcome!

Though Astasia Orlova had violet eyes and dark, almost ebony black hair. Just wanted to point that out. Otherwise It's awesome! (I searched almost all the books for this info in my past attempts to sketch her and color her.)

Yeah, I'm thinking of re-editing it. It seriously starts to hurt my eyes. I know I can do better (and do better research, since I own the trilogy :( ). Thanks for pointing it out. It's nice to get a comment from another fan!

Very nice! B-)

Is this a sign you'll be doing more realistic work in the future, or just a random project? :)
