Blood Ties
Sketches representing the four seasons, personified. I've always been interested in the fantastical and sometimes dark world of the fae, and I've been drawing them since I was young. This is a far more evolved and developed version of those childhood drawings, based on a world which I created and wrote stories for. I was inspired by the beautiful fae I read about in A Court of Thorns and Roses, and also by the darkly wonderful faeries in The Darkest Part of the Forest and The 13 Treasures. They were a joy to sketch - it allowed me to work through my art block, my depression, and showed me that I was beginning to develop my creativity in a way that I hadn't been able to before.

These four are Ilhana Tempreth, Lady of Spring; Raye Tempreth, Lord of Summer; Folius Tempreth, Lord of Autumn; and finally Sychra Tempreth, Lady of Winter.

Hope you like them!
This was a fun experiment, since I've never before painted armour or painted in sunset lighting. I think I'm pleased with how both aspects turned out! Hope you all like this too. I'm still not over Infinity War, which is why I decided to pay tribute to a wonderful character and his portrayal by an equally wonderful actor. Hope you guys like it!
Sauron, Master of Baby Fell Beasts
So I was re-reading the Return of the King when I came across this little gem about the fell beast belonging to the Witch King:

"And the Dark Lord took it, and nursed it with fell meats, until it grew beyond the measure of all other things that fly..."

Which of course made my imagination run away from me and that's how I ended up drawing Sauron (pre-Numenor) raising some baby fell beasts. Fun fact: I used pictures of my toddler self for references for their tubby bellies. (Just kidding :P ) Hope you guys like it!

P.S - Hands are an absolute MENACE to draw my goodness
Hello, everyone! I'm sorry for all the sporadic updates, school is eating up a lot of my time. Thankfully I think that I'll be able to draw and paint a little more now that the workload has eased a bit. I'm currently just sketching anime and semi-realism, and if you would like to see it I'd be more than happy to post it up for you. :)

I really just wanted to ask if there were any styles in particular that you wanted to see from me, be it anime or realism or a style within that spectrum, since my muse has been a little dormant lately and I simply don't know what to draw. If you have any preferences, please let me know! I'd love to draw something properly, and I would if I knew what to do.

Much love,

Hey everyone! Just a few words about myself.
I'm an aspiring artist and I take every opportunity to practise - at least when I'm not doing homework, coursework, or something similar, since I'm in university right now which can eat up oh so much time. I've always been into fantasy and sci fi so I might be seen as a bit of a nerd ^_^ but it's such a wide open genre. When I was younger I used to make up all these fantasy characters with worlds for them to live in. I even used to get my siblings to play with me, and then my cousins!
I didn't just leave it there, though. I drew pictures out of my imagination, but I could never get what was in my mind on paper. So I began to write stories, but still always practised drawing. And that's where I am today.
If I'm not drawing, I'm writing or, most likely, learning languages. I'm studying French, Spanish and Italian in uni, and actually I'm also learning Arabic (Quranic Arabic for now) and Mandarin Chinese. As you can probably tell, languages are my all-consuming passion.

So that's a little bit about me. If you managed to get through all of this, hats off to you! :D
Much love, AnathelaRen x

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my comic! It means a lot to me!
Reading your bio.. all I can say is YES! EXACTLY!  ME TOO ! My story started when I was about 14, and it never went away!! Yours is like that too, .it's inside and wants to come out!
It is as if  it is writing itself. This sounds a little crazy I know, but this is Deviant art. we are all  mad here. Have you had this experience?
AnathelaRen Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2015
Yeah, I know exactly what you mean! It's a little frustrating that I can't get my story out the way I want it yet, because I don't think my writing or drawing skills are good enough, but I'm sure with practise they'll improve. I agree, we're pretty crazy here! ;) Thanks for the favourite, by the way, and for taking the time to reply to all my comments! :D
