Dejah Thoris Art Nouveau Commission

Dejah Thoris Art Nouveau style commission finished. I got carried away designing her jewellery. I really wanted it to look uniquely alien but also a plausible design.

I am taking a few ‘Art Nouveau poster’ style commissions like these. Ink on A3 (29.7 x 42 cm, 11.69 x 16.53 inches) bristol board. Shipping worldwide. If you’re interested contact me for details – lily(at)MyBeautifulMonsters.com 🖤


Zatanna Commission

A commission from several months ago for a local collector who now has 2 of my favourite drawings.  The Art Nouveau Death and now this Zatanna are his. I love being asked to interpret these characters and really design the whole page.

The original pieces are drawn directly into his designated character commission sketchbooks. These books are fill with great sketches from artist from around the world. Truly a treasure.

Copic Multiliner and ink wash. Roughly A3 size ( The image spans the back 2 pages of the book, digitally edited to remove the join – Thanks Dave!)


D&D Group Character Portrait Commission

I was recently commissioned to illustrate a D&D group as a gift for their DM. They are playing in a Japanese and Chinese inspired fantasy setting which made designing their costumes and armour so much fun. I loved capturing the details and personalities of each of the players’ characters.

From left to right: Shaylynn Galascient a Sunrise High Elf Eldritch Knight armed with her magical flaming long sword, Sora Loarn a human monk martial artist and archer, General Vandrar Bloodtørst a Hill Dwarf Paladin heavily armed with ranseur, warhammer and short javelins and holding his sacred Forever Stone, Maki is a perky human Warlock equipped with her Robe of Useful Things and her treasured Book of Shadows, Thrym is a Therian Rogue a charming thief with trusty Rope of Climbing, daggers, goblin bow and cleaver.

“Naiad” Illustration

Inspired by the often tragic myths and fairy tales of a mortal’s love for a water nymph. Digital Painting.

“He would take her for his bride,

Beautiful like the mist and sparkling water,

But he could not take the river in his arms.

Naiad”


“Naiad” Finished Line Work

The final line work for my latest fairytale inspired piece “Naiad”. I have a few more like this I am very excited to do!

Tarzan

Tarzan – strong and wary. He is at one with the jungle.

An ink and watercolor piece I did earlier this year as a birthday present for my very dear and very talented artist friend. Find him on instagram – https://www.instagram.com/loopydavestuff/ and shower him with compliments and money

I wanted to capture the feel of old 3 color printed bookcovers using only yellow, green and black to build the image. I completely redrew the line work 4 times before I was happy with it.


Indiana Jones Ink Drawing

Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of my favourite movies. It has everything that makes a great story. And the cinematography is masterful.
Has Harrison Ford always been a cool grumpy old man?


Superman Sketch – 80th Anniversary

A sketch to celebrate Superman’s 80th anniversary issue #1000 which I never posted. Jubilant and full of justice.
