Poison Crown by Katerina-Art Poison Crown by Katerina-Art
~Commissioned Painting~

Mardin'ery'nvak is a woman of the Chiss, a race of Near-Humans from Csilla, a world covered in ice and snow. For her exotic beauty and keen intellect, she was chosen by the Sith Lord Abbadas to be his Lady Consort, as well as the legal concubine of his Imperial guise, Captain Quane Mardin. Although he dresses her like a princess, one needs tread carefully about her; Ineryn is dangerous in her own right, and her Lord's jealous rages are legendary.
Character/story copyrighted to my client Kirei- don't use without permission.



Completed with Watercolor, & Watercolor Pencils
on 140lb Arches Hot Press 8'5 x 11 watercolor paper.

For commissioned pricing please check my Commission Gallery on my Website [link]


I'm so excited about this painting,
I never done anything so sci-fi in theme before and wondered how it would turned out
i was very satisfied with the results, I enjoyed it very much.
My client does give me the most inetersting characters to illustrate and i love challenging myself
and i also got to learn about the chiss race and sci fi characters :)

Hope you all like it too :hug:

Very cool, Kat! I love how you used a cold red, but against the blues it looks so warm! I also love that crown!! Did you design it yourself, it's lovely!

I too failed often with watercolor backgrounds and took me a while to get the results i wanted,it's really a hard medium to control, something that works for me i always start painting light and add more color in case i do mistake i can fix it if i can ;)
