    I have always been a huge fan of Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series of books.  I would even go so far to say that those books are somewhat responsible for me becoming the artist that I am today.  Most of my very first digital paintings were of characters and scenes presented in those books, and my desire to become a better artist stemmed somewhat from my frustration at not being able to accurately depict those characters and scenes on paper.

    Now that series is finally coming to an end. (sadly)  I believe the last Richard and Kahlan novel "Warheart" is due to release in November and I am both excited and sad at the same time! That series will always have a special place in my heart and I am going to use the only tool I have in my arsenal to show my appreciation. My art.

    So from now until November I am going to be doing two things.  First.....I am going to be completely re-reading the series! (woohoo)  And second.... I am going to do my best to paint EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER IN THE WHOLE FRIGGIN SERIES! haha .   Ok well...maybe not EVERY character.. but every main character for sure, and as many secondary characters as I can cram in there. I will even try to do important scenes that happen throughout the course of the adventure. With the exception of Cara (because I have already started on a painting of her.  She is my favorite.) I am going to try and do them in chronological order as they appear in the books.  I will also mostly likely do multiple versions of the main characters as they change throughout the series.  I am going to try and keep them as accurate as I can to the books when is comes to physical descriptions and clothing as well.

    My goal is to do a character a week, but that may change as time goes on depending on life events.  I think I have developed enough as an artist to be able to somewhat do justice to the characters, and I intend this to be a celebration of Mr. Goodkind's incredible series, as well as a celebration of the impact those novels have had on me as a person and an artist.

    So here we go! This is gonna be fun :)

Don't Be Afraid, It's Only Death by Wreckluse
Don't Be Afraid, It's Only Death
For :iconcharlette-cheshire: 's Afraid of the Dark Contest.

Tried to have a somewhat monochromatic color palette, but it just looked a little too bland for me so I had to add a bit of color.  Hopefully that's ok for the contest.

SpiderQueen by Wreckluse

My two favorite things in the world.  Beautiful women and spiders :)

Was trying to paint like Caravaggio. (Except digitally, obviously).  Not sure how well I pulled that off, but I really like this one.
