I’m searching for all the fantasy fans in the world. For this purpose, I have decided to create “Fan Fantasy Character Designs”. In the coming months, I will try* to design a fantasy character from a selected fantasy universe once every 2 weeks.
Fans voted and the first universe will be J. R. R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of The Rings”.
The characters will be 2D, fully coloured, on a plain background. I will be working with Wacom Cintiq Companion. Therefore, from the first sketch to the last image the art will be digital.
I have downloaded EZVid and will record my progress. If YouTube allows, you will be able to watch me create each character stroke by stroke. I will also publish a quick Time Lapse video for those of you who are not interested in seeing the full progression of the art.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
- You can join Mili Fay Art Fan Club to receive a 1024px wide JPEG file of each character design for FREE.
- You can follow my progress on Mili Fay Art Facebook Page, Twitter (#FANtasy) and DeviantArt.
- As I am finishing the design, on my blog I will ask which of the characters you would like to see me design next. The FIRST person to respond in the comments will win; I will design the character of their choice, and they will get a POSTER SIZE full-resolution of the design for FREE. The rest of the fans will be able to purchase the full resolution PDF image for $1 on Launch Week (the first week the image becomes available for sale), then the price will be raised to $3. Once the following design is out, the price of the previous will be raised to $5.
All the money I earn from this project will go towards publishing my first, fully illustrated, fantasy novel: “Warriors of Virtue” .

NOTE: The first character will be Balrog–Durin’s Bane
* I wrote “try”, because this is a side project and my work has to come first.
