i just wanted to say that this is probably the most accurate depiction of melisande ive seen so far. in my mind anyway. as soon as i saw this i knew who it was. thank you for doing such an awesome job!!
Lovely. You've really caught that essence that defines the character. Something in the demeanor, the eyes, even the strength you put in her jaw. And am I mistaken or is she wearing the symbolic three keys on that chain?
You are not mistaken! I was hoping someone would catch that Thanks a lot! I've drawn Melisande a lot, but I never really felt like I got her right until this sketch. You can be sure I'll be doing some more of her, including full paintings.
Man I love that glare of hers! She has that arrogant yet elegant aire about her that is so indicative of Melisande Shahrizai (my favorite character in the book). I do hope you'll draw more of her! Your adaptation is to die for
