This is a piece I did just for fun. I noticed I have no predominantly red pieces in my portfolio, I haven't painted a female character in awhile, and I almost never do pieces just about villains. so that's what this is.

And as usual I set out designing a character purely from my head and it ends up being an existing character. shortly after i finished the line drawing for this I googled "raven queen" and found out she is an official D&D character. So even though I meant this to be an original piece it might as well be a D&D piece which I'm ok with.

If yours was a play on king in the north, that would explain it.

A semi-benevolent death god, and one of the more enigmatic power players in the D&D pantheon. I won't get into debates of religion but as a character, she always seems to be interesting, DMs have a lot of room to work with, and by extension they really characterize her strongly. By that vein, she's something of a common crowd favorite.

Lore things aside, the art is impeccable. The coloration is beautiful and I like the subtle gradients you've used. Deep, rich colors contrasting with more light tones. This is a beautiful piece.

And that is why most of my characters pray to the Raven Queen.

I'm particularly fond of the way her hands look like talons without being... hrm. Cartoonish about it? Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I don't think it would fit this piece as well.

How do You manage to make Your pieces so clean?
There is no mud there, no loose strokes, everything is not only perfectly clean and readable, but also balanced and harmonized.
I'd love to see You at work.

I think your illustration fits better with my mental image of the D&D goddess.
