Chadhiyana and Sagreembal pin-up by jmdesantis Chadhiyana and Sagreembal pin-up by jmdesantis
Original art: Microns and sumi ink on BlueLine Pro board
Colouring: Photoshop and Wacom Tablet

An extremely rare digital colouring piece by me. As many of my fans know, I mostly work traditionally. I created this piece when the prospect of running an advertisement for Chadhiyana (my new fantasy heroine--the woman in the piece) came about for a black and white publication. I liked the piece so much, however, that I wanted to create a colour version to use as a print. I also wound up using this piece for the back inside cover of Chadhiyana's first comic as well.

If you're interested in the character, being a Indian-esque fantasy heroine (something, I think, we don't see enough of), as I said, the first comic featuring two short stories (by me) introducing her and her world is available through Click here to order "Chadhiyana".

I hope you like the piece and that at least a few of you will check out the book. Cheers!

Thank you.

I hate to turn this into a plug, but there is an introductory comic to Chadhiyana available, featuring two short stories (16 pages total, full colour) on ( Also, I'm currently working on a script for a new, longer Chadhiyana story (the details of which I'll reveal on my website in April).

But whether you check it out or not, thank you very much for the compliments. I'm glad you like this piece.
