Commissioned work. The most challenging part was to put the whole rainbow into the painting, but make it look serious and noble. Enjoyed the process a lot. No refs were used, although I looked through many gems' photos for inspiration. Here are some details:

Не буду оригинальной - это очень красиво, как волшебное касание детства. Лица ваших персонажей отличаются особенной мягкой красотой, и сразу видно, что это русские работы.

I cannot imagine how frustrating any slips of the hand while working on this would have been.

I have some sort of obsession with small details, it's more like a meditation -- very calming. So it wasn't that bad.

I just finished reading the book (which I loved) and I kept thinking 'what and utterly amazing cover'. It's rare forbooks to get covers every bit as incredible as the content, and you pretty much exceeded it. Even if the illustration wasn't amazing all on it's own, it's perfectly appropriate for the story (man, i wish I could see your take on the Lord of the feast!)

Thank you kindly! I hope I will have an opportunity to give justice to Tethiel one day. He is one of my favourite characters. :)
