The Water Mage

the water mage, a woman hovering in the air, containing wild water energy in her hands. The water cascades around her body. She wears an eyepatch, gauntlets, and fish-scale skirts with leather strap boots.

The Water Mage had been the first in the series of mages I drew. I believe this is a 2016 or 2017 piece, but it’s been a long time since I checked.

I drew her with Copic markers and fine line pens on Strathmore sketch paper and made her into 4 x 6-inch mini-prints. She ( and a few other mages) were part of a series, which I printed for conventions. She and the others are now out of print. But who knows? I may put her in an art book later.

For now, she’s available as a hi-resolution download! But only for Ko-Fi supporters and Patreon patrons. I’ve been posting hi-res downloads for supporters, and I plan on keeping that up.

That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!

You. Are. Awesome.

The Legend of Jamie Roberts is just one comic I’m working on, but I’m at the point in development that I can come up with more solid ideas about character designs, monster designs, environments, and the like.

However, I needed to also distinguish something important in the narrative – the spiritual elements. Continue reading “Comic Page Design for The Legend of Jamie Roberts”
