New Legend of the Seeker Fan Poster & Avatars

I started this Thanksgiving week – started it – got stuck on what to do with it and then spent Friday looking for photos to finish it off with. Trent’s gorgeous poster sorta inspired me, but my real inspiration came from wanting to make my own poster for the show that reminded me of the book covers. My being stuck on it bled into not being able to get compositions to work for other wallpapers for the past week – so I’m glad that I finished it, my muse should be back in working order.

For this piece the stones in this piece remind me a lot of the artwork from PILLARS OF CREATION and yet I was sorta going for something like THIS cover but of course w/ my own twist and style and wanted it to FEEL like the show itself, not just the artwork from the book covers but to be a nice blend of the 2, rather like the series itself 🙂

I developed my illustrated look SPECIFICALLY with the hopes that one day I would be able to take photographs and create fabulous looking illustrations w/o having to actually paint anything. Background photos other than the castle are from New Zealand landscape photos and all came from Stock.Xchng/ except for the castle – I found it online somewhere and have no idea where.

This piece comprises of 3 different stock photos that were multi-layered, all cloud/mist/sunrays are brushwork. Shadows for Kahlan/Richard came from using the burn tool. I had to completely rebuild Richard’s feet because the original photo had his left foot 1/2 hidden behind a tree and his right foot was buried under ferns. Overall this probably took me around 6-8 hours to create, I hope that you enjoy it!
