The pirate book thing is slowly but happily becoming reality. Now, one of the most important things in this project for me is the opportunity to turn imaginary characters and places into something a little more concrete. Sure, vague concepts of characters exist, as do miniatures representing said characters. However, there is something very special in not only writing up a character, but having that piece of fiction turned into a picture.
With this introduction, I present to you the two character portraits I’ve commissioned so far. First up is the pirate queen Maricruz Aguilera de Cartagena described in my previous post:
The second one is another familiar character to regular readers. He is none other than captain Jonathan Pemberton-Smythe of His Royal Majesty’s army:
Both are the work of the incredibly talented Gabriella “Sayara-S” Bujdosó. She will (for obvious reasons, just see the pictures above) be doing the rest of the character illustrations as well. You can see more of her work on her DeviantArt page, as well as in the Song of Shadows and Dust game. I’m really happy to have her on board this little project!
