Breaking Through by juliedillon Breaking Through by juliedillon
This was inspired in part by an awesome scifi comic my friend has been working on (although this ended up having little to do with her story, which I feel a little guilty about, haha), and in part by a conversation I had at a recent scifi/fantasy convention about working with more abstracted elements, bold colors, and iconic imagery; I felt like it gave me permission to do more of the type of art I like doing best. :)

I just read the first two books in a wonderful fantasy series by Brent Weeks called "Lightbringer." You should check them out if you haven't, as I imagine an artist like yourself might dig characters who quite literally transform raw color into awe-inspiring sights by their will and a steady hand. Kindred spirits and all that... :)

The primary magic of the Lightbringer world is called Chromaturgy, with its practitioners known as "Drafters." Through sheer force of will they can cause the colors of the spectrum to gain physical form as a powerful substance called Luxin. And, just have a look at the description of Yellow Luxin (from Wikipedia):

Yellow Luxin is most often a liquid that releases its energy back into light quickly, allowing its use as a torch or a trigger to ignite flammable materials or explosives. Yellow nourishes other luxins, extending the durability of luxin structures or tools [or weapons]. Like water turning to ice, when yellow is drafted perfectly, it loses its liquidity and becomes the hardest [and deadliest] luxin of all.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture... as far as I'm concerned, it's "perfectly drafted Yellow"

PS-Will be watching in case you read the books and DO paint some fan art, because that just might manage to be even more epic

This is an amazing character design. I love her and I know nothing about her, but that's ok. Something tells me she's amazing.
