Empress by Frizz-of-Fury Empress by Frizz-of-Fury
Another char from “The Wanderer”
This is Empress Melissa Joan Roberta Catherine St. James
Known as the Child Empress or The Rose Of Honora
(Honora is the country where most of The Wanderer takes place)

She ascended the thrown when she was eleven (though she’s in her 20’s here) and her story is very tragic. Romeo and Juliet got nothing on her and King Laurent. Romeo and Juliet just had to worry about their families. Melissa and Laurent’s countries are at war and they are the respective ruling monarchs. Pride is a cold bed fellow.
She dies by the way. Very painfully.
He mourns her for the rest of his life. . .even though he’s basically the one who killed her.
So sad.

I love her hair, you gave it a very voluminous look (or how to put it)!

Thank you, I like fluffy hair for I to have fluffy hair :D

I imagine that a good portion of that would be some kind of weave/wig, poor Melissa the things she has to do to look the part

There story is a bit cliche though -_-
Young impressionable empress trying to be the perfect ruler by actually following the rules
. . .he a dashing king who doesn't give a damn about the rules cause he's the shit
. . .Some hanky panky, a little he said she said, an "oh no you didn't" moment, and then war that kills thousands.
She dies, he cries, and the new empress looks a lot like him. . .so you know cliche

Very beautiful: Love her expression and the feelings behind it. <3

But you're quite cruel towards your characters, aren't you? Will we ever hear their whole story in more detail, btw?

Thank you :D
I am horrible to my poor chars. Most do not have happy endings or lives.

As for Mel and Laurent yes there will be more about them. Though I'm not sure how I'm going to tell their story. I'm kinda leaning towards little comic shorts. Nothing full blown but enough to get a feel for them and their lives.

:love: I think I'm finally getting a flow/style to coloring and shading. A few more tweaks and I'll be happy :D
