The Guardian by keelerleah The Guardian by keelerleah
Commissioned for :iconkim-anderson: of her original characters Rhiannon Gray and Saurin.

I was thrilled when my good friend *Kim-Anderson came to me with this commission idea. She is in the process of writing a book and after sending me the first chapter I knew I had to be apart of it (even if it's just doing a painting of her main characters).

A bit about the characters: Saurin (the male in the back) is one of the legendary warriors that appears in her story. He is wrapped from head to toe in dark bandages to cover his burnt flesh (a ritual that they have to go through that involves burning themselves until they become eventually resistance to fire).

Rhiannon Gray: the daughter of the Duke. Saurin is sent to escort her on a long journey to her waiting fiancé.

Painted completed in photoshop.
No Critique desired.

Lovely work! Her outfit is so cool :D She looks like a very neat character. I wonder why the other person is half-dressed as a mummy?
I really like the characters they came out great where can I find the book that they are in?

do you ask for points when doing commissions? :XD: but also are you still doing them? this is amazing

All commissions are paid for with cash (through paypal mostly). I've never done any point commissions. I'm pretty much always open for new commissions, although there is a waiting list. Prices and info can be seen on my profile page journal entry. :)

Yeah I saw they are expensive but for a good reason ^^; and I wouldn't be necessarily able to do paypal on here (I don't know how for one) but also because I'm in Canada and I saw that you don't except Canadian money... unless I read that wrong. all though I am writing a book, no not bribing I just want people to enjoy my works, would you be interested in reading it? it's here on DA so it won't be hard to find :)
