The Magister - Gemstone IV

By lilyinblue
This is Magister Raelee Svala, my OC from the long-running MUD, Gemstone IV.  In short, she's a mage who likes fire and books... though not combined.

I've been working with this character for 14 years of my life, though I hadn't drawn her since 2006.  (See here: Damaged Eyes - I'd like to think I've upped my game a bit since then.)

I actually did the initial sketch for this in September of last year.  I agonized over the details on this one, as it was pretty important to me on a personal level.  Though after nearly 11 months of on and off work, she's done and I'm pretty happy with the result.

90% Photoshop w/ a Wacom, 10% Illustrator.  (With a little help from Arcane Runes Photoshop and GIMP Brushes and Alchemy II Photoshop and GIMP Brushes from redheadstock )

Gemstone IV wow, that takes me back. And I think I remember this character once upon a time, probably passing through Solhaven. But the artwork is gorgeous and always happy to see people how have long time characters that they love.

Solhaven!  That's exactly it.

And glancing at your profile... I think I remember you too.  

It was nice hearing from you... and thank you for the kind words!
