Hi people! Well, it's been long since I made a totally personal piece. I've drawn her more times, but I present you Laerith, an OC and one of the main characters from my first novel (not published... yet). She's an illusionist and works her ass out to be a great artist. She values loyalty, common sense and intelligence, and is very protective, doesn't trust people easily (though she sees beauty in almost everybody) and can be very, very vengeful. She needs to learn a lot, but she's on it. As you can see, she's a total display of gothic symbolism (and she's always been, I swear! Crimson Peak didn't even exist when I started writing the book about 7 years ago! XDD).

The key she holds is the one who opens her dead mother's chest, and symbolizes the acceptance of her true nature, her legacy and the unveiling of secrets. Hence why, despite being surrounded by Shadows (one of the primary forces that create the cycle of existence), she still has the Light of answers, and it all focuses on the key. The third Force? Blood, also here.

I want to make the same bookmarks with the other main characters of the first book and the theme Shadows, Blood and Light. It's going to be fun! I really hope that you like this ^^U

You just summed the character's aesthetics in almost a haiku XDD

So pretty! And kinda terrifying. And dark and powerful. Great idea to go a bookmark series of your characters too, your series sounds interesting...

She's only a 15 yo girl, but when she gets mad she can be pretty nasty. Thank you!

I love the way you focused the light on her face, and all that movement around her! And though purple is very, very far from being my favourite colour, it looks amazing in this piece :-)

She seems to be an amazing character~
Though I cannot see her being a sweetheart with this expression xD

Oh thank you! It's not easy to see her as a sweetheart. She's really good inside, it's just that she doesn't like looking vulnerable and often restorts to sarcasm and anger. She's very young, she needs to learn and she does along the story XD
