Shim-t Ash Sba Tchau by beckyg
"Shim-t Ash Sba Tchau" means "House of the Summoners of Star Fiends" in Ancient Egyptian.
Here we have yet another piece devoted to Relastra the Summoner. She is an Alienist character of mine in a D&D campaign. The Alienist is a character prestige class that is D&D's answer to playing Call of Cthulhu, when you're really not. The man over her shoulder is Deltion, her lover and fellow Alienist. Note that his neck is comprised of writhing tentacles, like Relastra's hair. This is a feature, or side-effect, of becoming an Alienist. You develop more like the tentacled horrors you summon on a regular basis.
This piece was colored entirely in Photoshop 5.0. I first sketched out a rough of the figures, then scanned it in to color. The background I created entirely with Photoshop without a sketch.
