Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United Kingdom
History student at the University of York. Gamer, writer, reader, and artist.

Has dreams of being a published author but hasn't finished writing anything in years.

Spends an awful lot of time reading YA sci-fi and fantasy, and draws lots of fanart for it.

Thanks for looking at my page! Commission info is over here, if you're interested :)


Heir of Fire by littleschemer
Heir of Fire
Celaena and Rowan from the Throne of Glass series by S J Maas.

So Heir of Fire was traumatic and awesome, and these two were just great in it :) This took forever, but I really wanted to do justice to these characters and this series, because it's really really great and just keeps getting better.
Malyen Oretsev by littleschemer
Malyen Oretsev
Mal from the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, to go along with all the other Grisha pictures I've done recently. Probably the last in this set, now I've drawn all the main characters :)

I've never had a particularly clear mental image of Mal, so it took me a while to pin down what I wanted him to look like. I think this works, and is pretty much how I pictured him a lot of the time, though he probably should look a bit older/more rugged. 

His costume is way less complicated and detailed that everyone else’s, but I think it works. I went with a much more WW1 influenced look for him because that matches how I pictured the infantry uniforms, but I tried to work some older elements into the design seeing as the other uniforms I’ve drawn have been very 19th century.

Also had a bit of a panic about the tech-level of Ravka when I was drawing his rifle - I’ve completely forgotten whether they still used black powder weapons. I drew Nikolai with flintlocks, so I went with a rifled musket - I’m not sure if that’s accurate or not, but hopefully all the characters look like they’re from roughly the same time period.

Kaladin by littleschemer
Kaladin from the Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson.

Finally got round to reading Words of Radiance and absolutely loved it, so I had to have a go at drawing Kaladin. This is fairly close to how I pictured him, though I think I drew him a bit too pretty.

Drew this on my incredibly slow home computer that doesn't have photoshop or my custom brushes, so it was a bit of a challenge, especially the background. I had a much more complicated background planned, but the computer was grumbling enough with this one.

And that thing happened again where a character looks much more expressive before I shade them. I need to do something about that.
Nikolai Lantsov by littleschemer
Nikolai Lantsov
More Grisha trilogy art! This series just has the best costumes to design.

Nikolai was my favourite character in the entire series, so of course I had to draw him :) The picture isn't as interesting as the Darkling or Alina ones because of the absence of fancy magic effects, but I'm pleased with the design.

I guess I'm going to have to draw Mal now to finish the set. Oh dear.
Hester Shaw by littleschemer
Hester Shaw
Hester Shaw from Philip Reeve's  Mortal Engines Quartet.

The Mortal Engines books had a huge impact on me when I was a child - they introduced me to genres I now love, had a huge influence on what I wrote, and contained super-badass female characters who were all awesome. I was thinking about the books the other day, and ended up drawing Hester. I've probably got some details wrong, seeing as I haven't read the books for years, but I think I got her about how I pictured her. She's not ugly enough, which is a bit of a problem because Hester's ugliness is a huge part of her character, but my style's really bad for non-pretty characters. I really need to do something about that.

Tried using a slightly messier colouring style for this.

Hey :)
Thanks a lot! I'm glad you like it, I was wondering what people who'd read the fic would think of the picture. I was going to draw the rest of the characters, but I kind of got distracted...
Thanks for all of your reviews on the fic, btw :)
