TP: Keladry of Mindelan by Minuiko TP: Keladry of Mindelan by Minuiko
middle-of-the-night inspiration invariably means Tortall art. Took around 1.5 hours in Painttool SAI, no references.

I haven't drawn Kel in a while, feels good!

Kel (c) Tamora Pierce
Art (c) Minuiko

This series is awesome. It's what got me into reading Ms. Pierce's work.

I envy you so much right now... especially if it's my favourite teen novel! My own art is worthless compared to yours... P.S. Kel is AMAZING!!!

I wonder, do you use any kind of reference in your art? like for difficult poses and such?

Not for this particular piece but I do use references for practice all the time :)

Your Tamora Pierce art is the great, and your Kel is the best I have ever seen; I do illustration of Kel myself and your version is just as I have always imagined her in my mind since read the series for the first time in middle school. I am a veteran artist myself, and have just found the time and courage to open a deviant for myself; do you have any pointer's for working with the tablet?

Honestly, this will seem like a copout answer but it's true - just practice. Practice until it feels as natural to you as drawing on paper. I don't use any particularly nice tablet (mine is a factory refurbished Bamboo MTE-450 that I got for $45), but I use it an awful lot so it's become second nature. Thank you very much! I'd love to see your Kel :)

So true! My friends always ask me how I draw "so well" and it is just practice, I've been drawing since as long as I can remember!

Would you mind terribly if I edited this to simply fit it for my tumblr theme?
I would put credit to you in LOTS of places. :3

Even your middle-of-the-night work is amazing! I love your gallery and perceptions/designs of the characters, particularly Wyldon and Kel. I'd love to see you do more work on them!
