Princess Tariel Nimara Angel Unicorn Dragon Cat

Name: Princess Tariel Nimara
Titles: Warden, Princess, Guardian, Shephardess of Unicorns
Race: Avatar of Abathia the Unicorn Goddess
Age: Unknown

The Dragon Vishantor Reference: Dragon Animal Beast Creature monster Vishantor (aka Smauggers)


The Sword Epiphany Reference: Flaming sword blade weapon dancing dragon flying 

This is a magical sword named Epiphany the Sword of Enlightenment. It bears the flames of Cleansing yet also can wield another magic, the power of air and wind. This is one of Tariel Nimara's Blades. It has two dragons wrapped around each other with their wings spread on the hilt. It features magical stones that glow red when using fire or violet when using air energy. It can do the following: +2 Flaming Dancing Faeryblade (base attributes of longsword but is made of silver and gold with a twisted blade. Other faeblades can be purchased in Tir'Rielle though they won't have the magical enchantments.). It allows access to the Water and Earth Cleric domains and the user may use one power from each per level. This blade whispers wise words to its owner and sometimes randomly to other people and it can be disruptive.

The Sword Unicornity (sword that uses  magic to turn into a wooden staff and can heal

This is a magical sword named Unicornity the Sword of Alicorns. Pictured above in staff form, the staff you see is also a sword. It morphs into a beautiful golden blade which gleams with water and earth magic.  It allows access to the Water and Earth Cleric domains and the user may use one power from each per level. In staff form it performs as a +2 quarterstaff (bludgeoning) and can cast the Heal spell 1/day. In sword form, the blade performs as a Rapier +2 (piercing) and looks like a unicorn horn (alicorn) with two wrapped unicorns on the hilt with spread wings.

Mounts: All in the stable (often rides Malcarnus, Abathia, Abulus)

This is Tariel Nimara, warden of Tir'Rielle Island. I had wanted to draw her anyway. She's a shapeshifter but this is how she usually appears, and the creatures around her are her greatest allies and friends. Her hair (and Abulus's mane) are always affected as if by a breeze or as if its moving slowly underwater, that is important (She can also slightly control hers).

About Tir'Rielle

The magical island can be read about in my stable. They get funds from the outside world by making enchanted cheeses, spells, magic items and more, then selling them to the outside world. Most of the magical things are sold in secret to avoid the world at large from finding the island. However, these purchases allow her to help support the Gygaxian island, the Sanctuary of life and also to help feed her Gygaxian horses which thrive on bad-for-you food. Of course, the island's nature is so that animals can eat whatever they want and still be healthy. This also helps pay for a (partially magic) internet connection that they are using to communicate from their island.

She adopts animals and equines that cannot live anywhere else. This is another reason the Island has such a ragtag bunch around.

She is guarded in turn, not only be Abathia's allies, but also by Abathia's mate, Ixaxi's allies as well. This essentially means little other than a small entourage of energy dragons, however, he sent Atarn, his own Avatar and a small dragon to live with her. Other dragons also live on the island but they are often reclusive.

Random Stuff: This is Tariel Nimara, warden of Tir'Rielle Island. You'll be able to read more about her on the upcoming finished piece (the due date for the competition is June 30 if anyone else is interested in joining). I had wanted to draw her anyway. She's a shapeshifter but this is how she usually appears, and the creatures around her are her greatest allies and friends. Her hair (and Abulus's mane) are always affected as if by a breeze or as if its moving slowly underwater, that is important (She can also slightly control hers).

Here are her closest animal/creature friends which are shown in the picture:
Unicorn: Abulus
The Dragon Vishantor Reference: Dragon Animal Beast Creature monster Vishantor (aka Smauggers)
Bat Winged Cat: Vladimir
Progeny: Cassiel (girl) and Gabriel (boy) twins (with Atarn)

She also has a mate, named Atarn, who is with her constantly on the island. He tends to her during the times that she cannot cope with being possessed by Abathia's spirit.

She is an Avatar of the Goddess Abathia. She was born and raised on a magical island that has little contact with the outside world.

Though her name is unusual, names like hers are common on the island, especially the -el ending to her first name.

Inked with Micron pens. Made in prismacolor marker and pencil. Border done in photoshop, that is it, the rest is traditional. Took way too long. Original is not very big (9x12). All the rest is WIP but I will get it done in time for the contest. PLEASE DON'T STEAL.

Look, this piece inspired someone!

Art Divination Reading: Healing, protection and power. This is the High Priestess, wielding considerable will and power. Knowledge of the secrets. portals, unicorn energy and magic. This card is the cool, aloof high priestess who is confident in her sensual power. She knows her feminine powers are considerable. A wise high priestess will not misuse her natural body. She is a strong female in her prime. She represents the wisdom of angels and the beings of light that guard people at night. She is the avatar of the Unicorn Mother and descended directly from the First Unicorn and the First Dragon. Adorned in the vestments of atlantis, this also represents that ancient civilization. She is elusive like the unicorn. She will have a talent for healing. A natural shapeshifter, she adapts easily and can adopt the habits of those around her. She will have a kinship to dragons, cats and unicorns (horses too). She can see beyond the veil and is older beyond her years. She will not break vows. To do so would cause her great distress. She is guarded by dragons that often peer in at her to ensure she is doing well and safe. She is a shephard and guardian of people too, often helping those in need. If young, she may take some time to come to her strength, but she will certainly show a wisdom beyond her years. Hard to read, she is a being of distance and coolness.

Stuff like this, really beautiful, well drawn traditional art, inspires me to draw traditionally more. My hands shakes way to much, but it's getting better.I think to add a little more to this(or something similar) next time would be to have her face in an angle between 3/4 and profile, as to add dimension.
