#1 Chondra Flicker

| November 1, 2010 | 28 Comments

221 years old, and in servitude to Princess Lorne, Chondra is the soon to be Queen's messenger, bodyguard, whisperer, and anything else where descretion is of chief import. Chondra is, by birth, 3/4 fae due to an indiscretion by her grandmother - A fact Chondra loathes.

She has lived in court her entire life, and quickly rose in the ranks of whisper/messengers due to an uncanny ability to get into and out of near impenetrable places. Chondra is of the pixie caste; with insect wings, and with the ability to shrink in size. Resourceful, she enjoys a challenge, which her majesty is always willing to provide. She commands respect, admiration, and a touch of fear among those in court.

Though, a loyal subject, like all fae forced to serve the crown, Chondra resents the royalty that have cast her people in roles unbefitting their race and breed.

    Holy crap! Definitely looking for your posts the next 29 days — EXCELLENT! Very interested in how her wings work. Love her face; has an Alan Davis flavor to it.

      Thanks Gary 🙂 I appreciate it! I wanted to do something a little different with the wing anatomy and started looking at various insects and how certain wing arrangements functioned. There was one in particular (will have to hunt it down again), that had wings on arm-like appendages which allowed it to pivot and alter direction in a crazy way. Those here are re-imagining – something that would allow her to fold/tuck them in, while keeping them upright and ready to take flight.

      He he he – defintely! Thanks man 🙂 Most of the peices I’ll be cranking out this year are going to be tradtional, with a small smattering of digital pieces. This first batch are all Ink with minimal PS work.
