Fanart Friday(ish) – Abe & Nuala

fanartfriday_abenuala_rachelillustrates

(Yes, belatedly, whoops.)

Got to finish up this little pencil drawing of “Hellboy II”s starcrossed lovers. My Wife and I rewatched it recently and I still very much wish they’d had a happy ending (to the point that I have a headcanon now of the forest returning Nuala to life upon the condition that she work to prevent her brother’s return. Perhaps someday I’ll get to write it).

(Also, moral of story: Sign me up for that Doomed Romance anytime.)

Snow Queen 2017 – the Wicked Sprite, the line of Suitors, and Two Houses

One more post for The Cherry Arts’ “The Snow Queen”

The Wicked Sprite who truly causes all the mischief! He is another of the shadow puppets, and in designing him I tried to pull in some of the same design elements from the Battle Sprites they had me do last year:

And in a less-spritely scene, we had a backdrop of a line of suitors looking to charm a certain princess….

Finally, two houses, as the story starts with! These were the last thing I was asked to do, and I think they came out pretty well (my fellow Ithacans may recognize some of the architecture!).

Today’s the last day, everyone, so if you’re local please come check it out!

And again, so grateful and blessed to have been on this show. Here’s to even more magic and whimsy next season!

Cherry Arts Snow Queen, Court design set

NOTE! My original plan was to try and post one piece a day up til opening night….but that’s now tomorrow! So plan adjustment time. Here’s the final design set, and likely a reminder and more info will be posted tomorrow

So (as mentioned before) I have been blessed enough to get to do some design work for a local production of “The Snow Queen” by The Cherry Arts Many many many thanks to my friend Scott Hitz, of Pupphitz, for bringing me on. I’m extra excited and very grateful, in part, because this is among the fairy tales dearest to my heart.

Not to give away what they’re going to be used for, but here’s two more somethings from it
