Lady Carkan by Jennyeight Lady Carkan by Jennyeight
One of my own characters, Nacigala, the only woman that has ever lived in the castle of Karkan.
The Carkans are kind of a school for magicians, but also the judiciary of the country I invented.
They have very strict rules, are only allowed to wear special robes and these wyvern horns, they have to be very tidy and they have to live celibated...
Well, I guess you can see that Lady Carkan never followed any of these rules very properly, but nonetheless they never threw her out because of several reasons: First of all, she is the most powerful witch that ever lived... would you drob your best player in a football game so easily?
The second reason is, that she rescued the life of many other Carkans and the third and maybe the main reason is, that she is the daughter of the most favourite novice of the highest master of Carkan. This novice is the only one that ever left Carkan by choice and settled down.

Well, about the technical stuff: I used Photoshop CS2 and my Wacom tablet.
This time I have been inspired by an old perfume advertise I found in a Vogue magazine some time ago.
I overtook the pose more or less and also parts of the color scheme.
I should also add that Carkans are not allowed to wear violet colored clothes, so this is the main reason why I used it here. Lady Carkan always wore violett dresses ^^
I decided to leave the focus on her face, so many things in the background are not worked out very properly.
On her desk you can find several things: She plays the flute, loves to wear dark jewelry and she is kind of a collector of scurillous things, as you can see on the cranial she uses as penholder.
The black roses on the desk are the main symbol for Carkan and have magical powers.

Well, if you really read all of this, I thank you and hope you like the painting ^^

//EDIT: Chagned the color scheme and added more details, uploaded in it a higher res, so you can zoom in!

Please also have a look at my other work:

wow, her face is really perfect and her dress is out of this world. also her history is intriguing, I wonder why do they have so many restrictions (this one with violet clothes is so cruel, not to mention celibate :lol:). very interesting character (I share with her love for violet dresses) :D and the colour palette won't let me leave without a fave. :heart: excellent work.

Haha, you can't imagine how much fun it was to invent the Carkans. I wanted one people being so fussy, that everybody who sees them is just rolling with his or her eyes, but still a people you are kind of scared of ^^

Wow. Unglaublich! Es sieht echt super aus.

Ich mag deine Farbwahl sehr. Und ich find' es toll, wie du alles so gut farblich auf einander abgestimmt hast. Ihr Blick ist auch toll. Er ist so anders - nicht gleich der Bildatmosphäre und trotzdem passend.

Allgemein ein tolles Bild. Gute Arbeit. :')
