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 🖤


Protection Spell

I’ve been working on this personal piece for a few months now in the few spare hours I could find.

“I am Fire,

I am comfort and destruction,

I burn in the darkness,

I am protected.

PROTECTION SPELL”


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! 


#mermay Mermaid Drawings

I’ve had some health problems lately and I decided to draw mermaids to cheer myself up #mermay
I wanted to create some decorative ornament like designs.

Valkyrie

“She has come for me,
Moonlight is her face
Ravens, her cloak
Through the cold mist
On the now silent battlefield.
VALKYRIE”

I had this idea and sketched out a tiny scribbley thumbnail about a year ago. I started collecting reference images and refined the sketch. I would work on it when I got a chance but it wouldn’t look right. So I would leave it. I would restart again with the thumbnail. More reference. Restarting it again. And again. And again.

And then something clicked and I restarted and finished the painting in about a week. What clicked? Her wings couldn’t be majestically outspread, to be descending they would be pulled back and smaller. And the composition fell into place.


Daenerys Targaryen Inkn Drawing

Daenerys Targaryen – Copic Multiliners on bristol paper

I must admit that I only watched the first season of GoTs. While the show visually is very impressive I found that I didn’t really care about the characters and gave up. I’ve heard good things about the later seasons and can understand why its been so popular.

This is Daenerys at the start of her story, determined to find out who she is.


Xena Art Nouveau Portrait

Art Nouveau portrait of Xena Warrior Princess for my lovely friend’s birthday. I never got to watch the show (didn’t get to watch much tv growing up) but I think I would have liked it. Not sure about trying to watch it now…?
