Art Commission: Nicole Cadet

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. 

Today I am sharing a commission done by Nicole Cadet. She is an Australian artist who was able to take some preliminary sketches from another artist and complete them in her own magical style. I had commissioned someone else for another portrait of Cadda, but that artist had to drop out for lack of time, but she let me keep the sketches. I have since lost those sketches, but they were basically various poses and styles done in a quick paint. Anyway, Nicole did an amazing job:


To me, this is how Cadda would've looked in the beginning of her journey (From the Darkness Comes). Nicole even wrote a blog post on her process for creating this portrait. You can read it here. Again, I am so intrigued by the process and amazed at the results. 

Please check out her website or her deviant art for more beautiful art and/or commission info. 

Until next time, 


P.S. I have shared the watermark version because the originals are for my personal use only.
