I'm always intimidated by drawing Lanfear, because how do you portray the most beautiful woman anybody's ever seen?  But you nailed it.

I was intimidated by that too. So I decided to go the beautiful crazy route. It was suggested to me to look at Morticia Adams and Lilly Munster. I tried to use the classic shadow around the eyes with a bright highlight to intensify her eyes. Then I just looked at darkly beautiful actresses like Monica Bellucci. To me it is really imposible to portray the most beautiful woman ever because that is really an opinon. So in that case I went with other attributes. Like in Berelain I went with the fact that yes she is a seductress but she is also a queen and a strategist. :D

That was a really solid strategy, and it paid off like crazy.

I love the hair piece and dress and such, but to be honest, she doesn't hold a candle to your Graendal. And according to the books its the other way around. I hate to be a poo, but its just my opinion! And i suppose it's all up to imagination, and what different people see as beautiful.

Thank you.
Beauty really is up to the viewer. I found Lanfear gorgeous but I also wanted to show her insanity.
For Graendal I wanted to show her pompousness and vanity along with her beauty. They are both beautiful but in different ways.
I'm just happy that you like them. :D

This is well done. But I don't remember her wearing any jewelry. She always seemed above it to me.

Bandersnatch (the team that owns everything WOT lead by Jordan's Wife) says she does and said to paint this specific Jewelry. Most of it is angreal

lol yea. It's cool. Even though I read the series they had to remind me of a lot of stuff and I had to do research. There is a lot of information in these books

I always remembered her to wear nothing but her dress in most of the series, but she wore some when she attacked Rand in the fifth. Then of course, her soul trap as cyndane.

okay, you have to stop.

You outdo yoursellf with every new piece. I love the "highlight" around her eyes. As usual, impeccable costuming and detail.

Thank you.
The highlight came from thinking of older movies, where the beautiful villain would have only her eyes highlighted. I looked a lot at Morticia (from the original Adams Family and the one from the 90's).
Since I am always trying new ideas I keep getting better...so thus is the process. I might have to go over the older ones just to make the quality match :D
Thank you very much

Huh - I coulda sworn I replied to this months ago. Yes, I love the highlighted eyes treatment like she's some sexy femme fatale from a 40's noir film. It's just brilliant. This is Lanfear and she is the embodiment of Evil Fabulousness.

In my mind'e eye she is the perfect composite of Catherine Zeta Jones and Famke Janssen.

I've probably been looking forward to seeing Lanfear more than any other - love her character, and absolutely love this piece! It really does capture the immense power, seductiveness and slight insanity that is The Daughter of the Night. Again I cannot heap enough praise on this piece!

ReddEra Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you, to me it was more important to capture her insanity than her beauty. That came after. I'm really glad that this worked out, some of the people on the FB page disagree with you. But I think it is Lanfear to her very essence. Can't make everyone happy

I couldn't agree more. The WOT is littered with beautiful female characters - what makes Lanfear stand out is her very insanity! She is the woman whose obsession with power and the Dragon has unhinged her - if I couldn't automatically see that insanity in your piece I would have praised it for a beautiful woman who could be any random character, but not Lanfear. No this is spot on. I rarely criticise other commenters (everybody is entitled to their own opinion, and as you say you can't please everyone)but those on FB who think otherwise may want to re-read (or read properly for a first time)the sections that present the Daughter of the Night - if they can't see the need to capture her insanity then I fear they've missed the very point of her character. I for one am relieved you have presented her as you have, she is much too important to have anything less than the perfect touch you have given her. Ok rant over.... :-)

I am beginning to wonder if you're pulling your inspiration from MY HEAD!

Absolutely perfect. I love her saucy look. So very Lanfear. Will these cards be for sale at some point?

I love how her hair are lighted by moon!

Actually that is her dark power, but I wanted it to look like the moon and the night. When I can release the full card it will be more apparent.
