Terenmei of the Vir

Posted Jul 12, 2019, 3:27:01 PM
A quick study I did to bring the reinstated duchess, Terenmei of the Vir, to life for the first time. At the age of 98 (about 50 years old translated for her nonhuman race), Muidemi's mother-in-law, regent and caregiver to her second child, crown prince Renvishan. She is the one force Muidemi is terrified of, a woman of political significance and great strength. She is the mother to both my Adlouna Larisso and Masahiro of the Vir. The granddaughter of a Llamitian prince, she is sold into slavery as a child when her family's estate was no longer liquid enough to pay off the local imperial magistrate in a desperate bid to spare the rest of their family. She is the epitome of a lioness, and is strongly tied to her youngest son, Masahiro.

      Thanks so much! Ooh, about 8 hours I guess start to finish. Some of that time was spent finding references for this character since I don't have any other art of her.
