The Sun Prince and Naamah Masks

I haven't made this Sun Prince mask in a long time! This particular one is going to serve in a Kushiel themed wedding ceremony along with a matching Naamah mask.
The Sun Prince.

This'll be the first time I've made it with real pheasant tail feathers!

This mask was carved from leather and painted with acrylics. I added the small Swarovski crystal cabochons by hand with tweezers.

I'm currently closed for artisan commissions, but you can find out when I'm available for them again by signing up to my mailing list over at my site, .

Character Sketch - Joscelin Verreuil - Protect and Serve

8x10 inches, HB and 6B graphite pencils on paper.
The young man standing in the shadows behind me bowed in the traditional manner of the Cassiline Brotherhood, hands crossed before him at chest level.  Warm sunlight gleamed on the steel of his vambraces and the chain-mail that gauntleted the backs of his hands.  His twin daggers hung low on his belt and the cruciform hilt of his sword, always worn at the back, rose above his shoulders.  He straightened and met my eyes.

"Phèdre nó Delaunay," he said formally, "I am Joscelin Verreuil of the Cassiline Brotherhood.  It is my privilege to attend."

He neither looked nor sounded as though he meant it...

- Phedre meets Joscelin for the first time in Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey.

This was a sketch prize for reaching 1000 Likes on this project's Facebook fan page.  I was so happy to get the chance to draw Joscelin Verreuil, who does not have near enough fan art of him, considering what a BAMF he is in the books.

EDIT:  I've also created some wallpapers customized for your desktop, laptops, and phones here, plus a sweet, sweet high res version where you can oggle all the details on Joscelin!  My little way of saying thanks for being an awesome fandom.;)

Fan Art Feature: Jessica Cox aka. Zeldyn

If you haven’t seen the amazing and inspiring Kushiel’s Legacy fan art by Jessica Cox, you are missing out! 

See the full sized images at the Kushiel Concepts tumblr post.

Her work has long inspired me to move forward with my own interpretations of these beloved characters from the series. I especially love her take on Melisande and Favrielle. They are simply as my mind pictured them!

You can see more of Jessica’s artwork at her blog.
