A painting I did to get some stress off my shoulders. I've got a lot of important things to do.. so I...end up not doing them and paint this...
Anyway: if you want to see the progress of this painting watch it here on youtube:

Finsa by J-Taurens
A painting of my mesmer character in the game Guild Wars 2.
Truth be told this painting was started long time ago and only now finished. It was lost and only recently I was able to retrieve it with other unfinished works, so more things to come (hopefully).
The character itself has long changed but I thought that I should stick with the design I had at the time of originally starting this work.
Cover by J-Taurens
I haven't uploaded anything new in a long time and that is mainly because lately I've been working with traditional works, that are yet unfinished or that I haven't taken pictures of yet.

So in the meantime I'll upload this cover for a book. It was a contest and my entry didn't win so I guess I might as well upload it here.
The story was about a old man who lived in a forest where only a lone, white doe lives. He befriends this animal, etc,etc,etc. She ends up dying and turns out to be a princess, the forest ends up being a a huge castle with big gardens and all the birds following this doe turn back into butlers and maids ~ or something along these lines.
Why oh why does it take so much time to finish my works :C ?!
7 golden, imaginary, invisible ponies to whoever can make me work faster right now!!!

Also~ seems like doing character + background is as time consuming as doing 2 separated works....
And guild wars 2 is still 2 weeks away :/

So how is your day?

Thanks for the support. I'm cooking something right now, can't tell when it'll be finished but if my computer doesn't decide to crash and burn I should also have a video done showing my process.
