This is one of three illustrations I did of Seirian. This one lost to Seirian on a Tree.
If I had not held a poll, I probably would have gone with this sketch for Seirian’s print. There’s not as much involved, it’s simple and looks great. I think the decision would have been reinforced by conventions as well: I noticed prints like these (such as Carwyn and Cian) sold a lot better. It’s what lead me to mid-body shots like these for Princess Midnight Star and Princess Nina.
Seirian is pretty straight-forward as a character, being a sporty witch, so I just drew her with her broom she loves to surf on. I couldn’t really think up anything else for her in something like this, but the simplicity works well.
