Azhrarn and Sivesh


8.5x11 Pencil on Paper

At the time I did this I was reading Tanith Lee's Novel 'Nights Master'. I think I got as far as page 17 before I already had visual images springing into my mind. Tanith Lee is one of those writers that creates beautiful visual imagery with her words. I hope to revisit this idea and do a painting based on these characters. Azhrarn is the Prince of the Underearth and his companion on horse back is Sivesh. A mortal that Azhrarn saved as a child a bestowed with Demon gifts. How could you not want to paint that? Maybe I'll wait  until I finish the book.
