puimun's picture

Well, actually this was a commissioned piece for a role playing game book, and this was THEIR version of morgan. But yes, the mythical persona is a mortal half sister of arthur.

Guest's picture

your artistry is awesome. I especially love the butterfly wing detail and the detail of the floating ship. I just have one question... wasn't morgan le fay a mortal? she was king arthur's sister or something..

Guest's picture

Your mastery of the pencil is absolute magic the textural detail divine! All your work is astonishingly beautiful with the most gorgeous ornamental design.I am blown away by your ability to convey a sense of enchantment,of other-worldly magic.Your work is actually luminescent as if lit by a charm.Your concept of the faery kingdom is my favourite.(persephone)

Stephanie, That' very nice , with best wishes for you.

I do a lot of smudging with tissue paper as I go. Kind of layering it on, so in a way, it is a lot like the method I work with watercolors.

Stephanie I don't know how you can do shadings like that so perfect, when I shade with pencils you can still see the texture of the paper through it, sort of grainy, but when you do it it looks like watercolours of grey, how do you do it?

I hate doing perspective, thus I probably could have spent more time on the bookshelves but lost interest at the time! I did put wood grain on them, but maybe it's hard to see at this resolution. And I'm not surprised you like the window -- that's a merm kind of thing. =)

Great image! Especially the window is near to my heart:) I like it very much, cool design and it gives space to the room. The effects and the composition is great too, I like the lights and almost everything. Perhaps the bookselves are too box-like. In this near perfectly designed artwork they would had something wood texture and a little natural looking. But it is a minor thing. The whole picture follows your professional style and quality, so I'm impressed (as always if I see a new Steph-work:). Grats!

Guest's picture

Nice image stephanie, love the movement and energy, all captured with great detail and care.

puimun's picture

Thanks!

puimun's picture

Haha. Lame or not, I can still appreciate a "wow" =)

puimun's picture

Oh yes, it's very much agreeing with me. I'm having lots of fun with it, and it's nice to have a change every once in a while. Been doing so much watercolor up til now.

oooo very nice! Great sense of drama and storytelling without looking staged. Pencil seems to agree with you ;D

Art at its best.
