Fan Art - Obernewtyn by The-Troglodyte Fan Art - Obernewtyn by The-Troglodyte
Elspeth and Maruman from Isobelle Carmody's Obernewtyn Chronicles. Hurray for obscure fandoms!

People on tumblr seemed to like this so I figure I may as well upload it here too. Personally I'm only happy with how Maruman turned out and Elspeth creeps me the heck out here and I want to cut off her head but it needs to be A6/postcard size, so oh well.

I haven't used watercolours in years and really need to relearn that shit.

Cheap watercolours on cheap watercolour paper with white gel pen which probably cost more than the cheap paper and paints combined :P

gorgeous! Maruman looks so sweet! I think the angle of Elspeth's eyebrows is a bit harsh? otherwise I love her face!

Ugh yeah, I have to agree with you about Elspeth. I'm actually entirely unhappy with how she turned out but I only had a certain amount of time to get this done before it was sent off so I didn't get a chance to undo it. Maruman makes up for it though.

Yay!! I missed your Obernewtyn fanart! I always try and draw some myself, but lately my stuff has been getting really vague and abstract soon after I start it.

Yeah, I really want to sit down and actually design all the characters how I see them in my head but . . . time and effort and whatnot :P

Nothing wrong with vague and abstract though. Just makes things interesting.
