elantra: Kaylin and the Barrani Ancestors by MathiaArkoniel elantra: Kaylin and the Barrani Ancestors by MathiaArkoniel

Cell-shaded fanart of Kaylin and the Barrani Ancestors from the Chronicles of Elantra series, by Michelle Sagara.

This painting is not an illustration, rather it's an annoying little image that would not leave my mind, especially when I get to passages in the books speaking of the two Barrani Ancestors from Nightshade's castle.

The scene from the painting represents something I would have loved to see happen; Kaylin, waking the Ancestors by mistake, but with no one (except Hope), there to help her. This idea would need to take place before Cast in Flame of course, seeing that Cast in Flame wasn't too kind to the two Ancestors.(╥_╥)

Darn. (¬_¬)
I so wanted to see more of them in the future and I had so many questions about them. Though, that's not surprising; they are Barrani, ancient AND vampires... exactly my cup of tea! (*^ワ^*)

I love this artwork too much (I love all of your pieces) and I made an account just so I can comment this lol, because I absolutely love the barrani ancestors. I always wondered in Cast in Shadow what the ancestors would have done to Kaylin if Nightshade wasn't there :3

Though my imagination can only guess lol

Well, at least one of them is still somewhere "in" the house. I wonder if we will here from him again or if Helen is just going to keep him...
And of course I also really like the picture :) especially Hope and the ancestor, they have kind of a similar expression here :D (Big Grin)

Oh I forgot about that!! There's still some hope to see at least one of the ancestors then. :D
Glad you like how this piece turned out, and the 'conversation' between the ancestor and Hope.

Oh my gosh, that looks so awesome! I really like everything. Sure as hell this would have been a very interesting scene.
Hope looks gorgeous and I especially like your 'magic' glow. It is wonderfully done!

Absolutely adore the way your portray emotions in features; and how you shade and detail your clothing! It looks so stunningly surreal yet brilliantly natural in motion too! I am ridiculously in love with the patterning/green tones on that first outfit @ A @

You're welcome^^ I never read urban fantasy before I think (I've never divided fantasy into sub genre so I don't really know XD )
Is the book series still ongoing?
