The Crimson Illustration You Asked For!

Raythe says …

Remember when you voted for what story would get the next illustration and Crimson and The Fell won? ย Well, Mathia is done with the first of these for Crimson and we thought it would be cool to show you the stages that the illustration went through to get to the final, beautiful illustration we have at the bottom!

The illustration will also be put on the site, but we thought to show it here first.


The sketch! This is where it all began after Mathia read your comments.



The mid-stage as color is added, but not refined!

And the final! Notice Mathia’s ability to capture light! The illustration just glows.

Mathia has already turned to working on The Fell illustration!

    Aaaaaah thank you this is so beautiful Mathia!!!
    Gareth’s body is a work of art <3 And they look so enraptured with each other aaaaah I love theeeeem!!! And the wolves!! So gorgeous and fluffy and adorable!!
    The setting is lovely too, the water looks fresh and pure I want to swim in it. And I love how the sun is shining on the wolves it kinda make it looks like they're happy and full of life and energy โ€” and Gareth and Jude (in their human forms) are still in the shadows which gives the feeling that they are in a secret, private place, hidden and apart from the rest of the world, and that makes it look more romantic and sensual somehow…

    Wow. Gorgeous.

    Amazing! Perhaps Mathia’s best work yet! โ™ฅ

    I love seeing the transition artist’s go through; it makes their art more personal for their audience, a glimpse of the magic behind the masterpiece. All the little outlines and what was scrapped mid-drawing… I hope we see more of these if it’s not too much trouble that is. ;p Anywho, looking forward to ‘The Fell’ pic. asap. =]

    I love that the wolves are ethereal! They mirror the original visions that Jude and Gareth had of each other. Lovely art!
