Traditional art of my OCs Arisalina Oliece and Restis Esthien. These characters are the protagonist of my story "The Black Earl" which is a somewhat prequal to "The Rebel Prince". It is set around 30ish years before TRP. The Black Earl is about Jestryn's parents when they were younger, when they meet and grow close to each other. Both quite young (She's 15, he's 18) and arranged into a marriage that would benefit both of their families, Arisalina and Restis are forced to get along with each other despite their conflicting personalities for the sake of their families. Arisalina is a polite and quiet girl who would rather read than socialise, whereas Restis is a cocky, arrogant man who hides behind a gentleman facade to win the affection of the noble ladies. Their story is focused around a murder mystery, in which the two work together to find the criminal who has murdered Arisalina's father.
I spent a long time colouring the hair for this one, but I am pretty pleased with how it looks! University starts on Monday, it doesn't even feel like I have had a break though with all the exams and stuff I have had to do throughout the holiday .__. oh well.
