This is my first serious commission ever.
It's a racial lineup for Alluria Publishings, for their upcoming Pathfinder supplement book.
They don't pay well, what with being a small company and all, but I don't mind since I honestly enjoyed doing it and looked forward to receiving their orders. Their art director was very friendly and polite as well. I hope I managed to return the courtesy - I have no previous experience with talking to employers.
A new edition of Cerulean Seas will be out in a couple of months, hopefully featuring this piece of art as well as my Nightmare With Zombies [link]
. Needless to say I'm excited.
I've already sent the image to my employer, but I might still make some minor adjustments to the blue guy's hand and their relative proportions, because I feel that the green mermaid-guy is too small and the one that looks like an eldritch abomination from the deepest of seas appears a bit too large.
But overall I'm happy with it and proud of being published. From left to right:
Asrai, merkoth, zif, benthic naga, apsara, melusine.
My personal favorites are the merkoth (tentacle-people) and the melusine (deepsea-mermaids that look like a mix of a frilled shark and an angler fish).
