Update Dec 7: Made her left eye smaller in response to crits. I guess her eyes are still too big; I wanted her to look like a bird.

Weren't sure to name this Disappear Here or Lunar Phoenix. Which do you think is better?

She likes to call herself Jane Smith. Or Doctor Smith, depending on her ego that day. It's a nice, ordinary, anonymous name.

Her enemies, however, call her by plenty others, but they have a habit of disappearing.

She's addicted to tea, baubles, and surfing. She'll masquerade as an ordinary human being, but often turns against them at the slightest provocation. It doesn't help she's married to a human king who's as cranky as she is. As far as she's concerned, humans wreak more havoc on the universe than she does.

Used a ref but cannot link it.
For the background, I used X-ray pics of sea shells, the cover of an engineering book, and marbles. There was too much negative space so I added the stripes.
I then flipped the pic. :la:

Latest character: Lucien Challis.

Colour pencils, Derwents and Faber Castell. Not too sure about the colour scheme, I didn't want to do the obvious and make the background reds or yellows. It's not in Lucien's nature to be predictable, and he grew up in a hick town in the mountains taking care of sheep and getting his behind kicked by his brother and other town douchbags.

Colours got washed out on the upload, the goldstuff on his tunic is supposed to be yellow, not white. The original is much smoother.

They call him the Raptor King because he rides the man-eating raptors (bird, not dinosaur), hangs out in the raptor conservatory, annexed the planet in five years, executes hard justice (including crucifixions), and hates the griffins' guts.

More info about him here.  The Raptor King IIOnly 60 odd people can ride raptors on Julus, and most of them are male. Apprentices don't count. Half either wash out or die before their six-plus years of training is over. Lucien has had only three, because he's not a good teacher (he throws his apprentices off cliff-tops for them to summon and catch a raptor mid-flight, or die), and can't relate to young people. 
Him being the king means said apprentice doesn't get to roam much outside the desert kingdom, since Lucien can't be bothered with state visits. He prefers to visit incognito, back-packer style, much to the horror of his court, and on occasion to Rider-hostile territories. Granted, it's not a Rider's fault the raptor he's on decides to eat a man for dinner-Riders can't control the birds, only call and coax them, and city people know sod-all how to avoid becoming dinner. Every time a Rider gets on and off, the raptor tries to kill him, which is one reason why he carries swords, daggers, a crossbow and mirrors everywhere

This is my biggest project so far. This took about a full week, using to sheets of paper and working on them side-by-side.

I wanted to combine two of my styles together to make one whole hodgepodge of imagery. I'm often torn between how to capture a side of my expression, and this is the crossroads composition that paraphrases myself.

Mixed media: graphite pencils, ink pens, tone markers, oil pastels, little bit of charcoal and I use my computer to enhance some tones and add the stars in the background.
