Princess Tariel Nimara by pegacorna2 Princess Tariel Nimara by pegacorna2
Space at top for book title
Space at bottom for author information

This is Tariel Nimara, warden of Tir'Rielle Island. I had wanted to draw her anyway. She's a shapeshifter but this is how she usually appears, and the creatures around her are her greatest allies and friends. Her hair (and Abulus's mane) are always affected as if by a breeze or as if its moving slowly underwater, that is important (She can also slightly control hers).

About Tir'Rielle

The magical island can be read about in my stable. They get funds from teh outside world by making cheeses, spells, magic items and more, tehn selling them to the outside world. Most of the magical things are sold in secret to avoid the world at large from finding the island. However, these purchases allow her to help support the Gygaxian island, the Sanctuary of life and also to help feed her Gygaxian horses which thrive on bad-for-you food. Of course, the island's nature is so that animals can eat whatever they want and still be healthy. This also helps pay for a (partially magic) internet connection that they are using to communicate from their island.


She adopts animals and equines that cannot live anywhere else. This is another reason the Island has such a ragtag bunch around.

She is guarded in turn, not only be Abathia's allies, but also by Abathia's mate, Ixaxi's allies as well. This essentially means little other than a small entourage of energy dragons, however, he sent Atarn, his own Avatar and a small dragon to live with her. Other dragons also live on the island but they are often reclusive.

Random Stuff: This is Tariel Nimara, warden of Tir'Rielle Island. You'll be able to read more about her on the upcoming finished piece (the due date for the competition is June 30 if anyone else is interested in joining). I had wanted to draw her anyway. She's a shapeshifter but this is how she usually appears, and the creatures around her are her greatest allies and friends. Her hair (and Abulus's mane) are always affected as if by a breeze or as if its moving slowly underwater, that is important (She can also slightly control hers).

Here are her closest animal/creature friends which are shown in the picture:
Unicorn: Abulus
Dragonling: Smauggers, and he's a color changing dragonling (his best friend is a giant creature named Smaug).
Bat Winged Cat: Vladimir
Progeny: Cassiel (girl) and Gabriel (boy) twins (with Atarn)

She also has a mate, named Atarn, who is with her constantly on the island. He tends to her during the times that she cannot cope with being possessed by Abathia's spirit.

She is an Avatar of the Goddess Abathia. She was born and raised on a magical island that has little contact with the outside world.

Though her name is unusual, names like hers are common on the island, especially the -el ending to her first name.

It took me a while to comment on this (i had commented on its WIP) but i wanted to take my time,you know looking at it. :D
It's trully bautiful,and magical,now that would a perfect word to describe it.I like all the blues and purples and how they contrast with the warm greens.I also really like your choice of colours for the animals,especially the unicorn's.Great work with the background,and the little details,like,is there a dragon head in the bushes,on the top right?? :D

Great composition and use of color. Digital enhancement is a good possibility to consider - it could help unify the images so the colors work even better together. The Unicorn I'd stay away from though, he's perfect :)

LOL! You're the second person to say that. I was talking to my friend (who saw the original) and he told me that. I have some glass paints and stuff. I am glad you like the dapples. I had fun with those.

Did all my initial work with the Brick White prismacolor marker. Did touches with the light cerealean prismacolor. Then I did tiny (yes, they're super tiny, since this pic is actually kind of small). I layered white, black, a light umber, blue(a light one and medium) , ivory (I don't know which off white) all in little circles on top of each other. Then I went in with white, did the highlights and filled in some of the dapples with white. Hope that helps.

I think this is a wonderful peice. The colours are bright, vibrant and very beaituful and she fits in well with the background.

I think doing a little with it in photo shop would be good, but not much seeing as its a good peice all on its own. Maybe add some ripples in the water in the distance as well as some shine to the jewllry. As someones said before though no lens flares. They can make things just look cheesy. The only thing I can really really say is keep it minimal though and try not to make it overpowering so that it is still definitly a traditional work. Though I could be wrong.

Good luck in the contest ^^

Yea, i actually think lens flare is kinda boring anyway, so no probs there. Thanks for the input and THANKS for telling me what needs work. Very appreciated.
