Character Art – Icarus

Hello there, Tellest fans!  We have a big treat for you today, and one that’s been in the making for a long while.

It’s been almost a year since we posted anything from the great Bea Gonzalez, but we’re happy to say that our trio of commissioned works from her is drawing to a complete conclusion now.  She had already done amazing work with Venathryn and Alicia, and we were very happy with how they turned out.

For our third character, we opted to use one of the other heroes from the Tales of Tellest.  Icarus was one of my favorite characters to write about.  It gave me an opportunity to make a different twist on the Greek mythology, and Bea brought him to life in a way that I would never be able to.

Icarus 1

Here’s a rough sketch of our winged elf.  As far as the written page goes, Icarus is one of the longest-lived individuals on Tellest.

Icarus 2

A more detailed set of lines came next.  Bea captured our hero in a way that I was incredibly impressed by.

Icarus 3

Finally, Bea started bringing color to the piece.  Her attention to detail is breathtaking.

Icarus Complete

For the final cut of the piece, we see a huge amount of progress.  Again, just take a look at all the different fabrics and materials.  Bea did a fantastic job.  My only disappointment is that I didn’t have more of her work to show more often.  I’m afraid she may have outgrown us for now, but we’re hoping the Tellest brand expands quickly in the months to come.  Stay tuned for more info!
