Today’s works-in-progress are both fanarts of Tedros Pendragon (aka Tedros of Camelot, son of Arthur) from the series ‘The School for Good and Evil’ by Soman Chainani! This fantasy/magic boarding school/fairytale retelling series is one of my all-time favourites, and I’m super hyped for the final book to come out June 2nd!
(Well…June 11th in the UK. Feeling lucky now that my Kindle’s registered to the USA region!)
Digital: Tedros as part of the #6Fanarts challenge
You might have already come across the Six Fanarts Challenge, but basically it’s a fun meme/challenge where others give you characters to draw. Tedros was one of those suggested, and I was 100% on board with it (I love his character)!
I’m planning to use this #SixFanartsChallenge as further digital art practice…and to try out another free drawing app, Medibang! (I have so far been using Autodesk Sketchbook.)
I really like how you can name each layer (I’m the kind of person who has like 6 billion computer folders, all named and sorted) and the ‘Pen (Sharp)’ brush is super cool! I can’t get pressure sensitivity with my stylus, but this brush force-tapers both ends of each stroke so it mimics the pressure-effect. TECHNOLOGY Y’ALL.
Traditional: Angry!Tedros (I won’t say when in the series because ~no spoilers~)
Hard to believe they’re the same character, right? In the books, there’s a strong Lion symbolism around Tedros and the role of Camelot’s King, so I wanted to use that here. And he’s now sort of turned out like the Beast in Beauty and the Beast 😂 Tedros’ hair is generally short in the books but I couldn’t resist giving him the Matthias HelvarTM wash-and-blow-dry!
I can’t wait to finish these two!
