Art Commission: JustAnoR

I've always been amazed at how a person can take my words and make a picture - or in this case, a digital painting. I want to share with you the art I have commissioned over the years while writing The Darkness in the Midst and other works in progress. Sometimes, when I'm feeling stuck, art can keep me going. Enjoy the art and make sure to check out each artist's page. 

First up are these two gorgeous works by Tanya Anor, aka JustAnoR on deviant art.

This was the first time I got to see Cadda through the eyes of an artist. I had my own pathetic attempts at creating her which will never see the light of day. But this one, I am proud to share. The scene is not from any particular book, but she is wearing some special armor (if you read She-Wolf on a Leash, you will know what I mean). Next to her is the one and only Matty Larkin. Don't they look awesome?


Now, take a wild guess on who this is! Yes, it's Ry Villandrando, captain of the high seas. He looks like he's up to no good, doesn't he? ;) 

Tanya Anor was great to work with. I don't know if she still does commissions, but she does a lot of fan art that is gorgeous as well. I once ordered an iPhone case with her drawing of Uhtred of Bebbanburg on it. It's a shame I upgraded my phone and the case no longer fit, but I still treasure it as I do these commissions. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and please check out JustAnoR for more. And let me know what you think. Is this how you pictured my characters? 

Until next time,
