Commission: Calypso

jrlallo was kind enough to grant me free reign in the use of one of his characters (and for another, in an upcoming commission as well) - and being a huge fan of underwater scenes and characters, I had to choose Calypso! She has such a pretty flowing appearance, and a mystical feel.

I hope I did her justice, thank you for the commission!

Please check out his books as well! She's from the Book of Deacon. I'd like to read some of his novels myself.

Ahh, that is so awesome that Joseph commissioned you! This is super pretty! Also nice to see some artwork of Calypso, she is a fun character. :) I recently finished the Book of Deacon series, it's quite good! You should definitely check it out. I can't wait to see what the the other commission will be of!

Thanks! I'm honored to be working with his characters, I'd love to be able to read his sci fi books someday! It's a shame it's been about five years or so since I had time to read a book, hahah.

Ah! I know what you mean. I am a pretty slow reader, too, so that makes it even harder. I was fortunate to get the audio books for the Book of Deacon series. I have a long drive to and from work, so audio books were a perfect fit. :)

Very nice! My favorite part is her floaty underwater hair.

Beautiful! Calypso is a fairly minor character with a lot of fans, so I'm sure they'll be thrilled to see this image. Many thanks!

Thank you! I wanted at least one of the two I picked from your roster to be one that didn't have too much fanart already, and she seemed like a fun choice! I'm really glad you like it!

I just realized I should give catseathedevil a little poke about this commission, since it is the first time someone besides her used the outfit she drew in the reference sheet!

I noticed she lacked much art! That was one of the reasons I really wanted to draw her :D
