Mera, Queen of the Sea and wife of Aquaman done with pen/ink and art markers, with finally some Photoshop post-processing to clean it up.

Fantastic reference model found here:
Queen of the Sea
I was inspired by looking at models wearing seashell jewelry to to a more traditional art nouveau piece, so I came up with a portrait of an undersea queen using ink and pencils.

Childhood Idols Found

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 19, 2012, 5:06 AM
Imagine my joy when I discoverd that one of the artists who first inspired me as a child was here on Deviant Art.

Anubis, Guardian of the Dead by JeffDee   

Mature Content

Bast, the Cat Goddess by JeffDee

Jeff Dee was one of the artists who worked on the 1st Edition Dungeons & Dragons books back in the late 70s/early 80s. His gorgeous illustrations and linework in the Deities & Demigods book especially were what drew me as a child. The images of the gods inspired me to not only game, but to begin to read about the mythologies of other cultures and to start drawing myself.

When I went to his page I was saddened to read about how TSR, the original company back then, threw out most of the original artwork from those books. Thankfully, Jeff Dee is currently working on restoring those lost illustrations in a Kickstarter project. Those who back it can receive signed illustrations of his recreated illustrations for the Norse Pantheon!…

So... if you're an old-school gamer like me who remembers those great books, a fan of Norse mythology, or just a fan of the arts who hates to see wonderful artwork fall into obscurity, then be sure to check out the site above and show your support!

He's only got 18 more days to raise about $1,400 more... so let's help him do it, people!

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
