Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander by Girlgoth Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander by Girlgoth
Bruce Spence as the wizard Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander from Legend of the Seeker (LOTS).

He's finished! :D I think somewhere between 25-26 hours of drawing time for this one, but it felt like it went pretty fast. :)

:wizardhat: POWERFUL MAGIC at work! :wizardhat:


I'm pretty happy with this one. I think the likeness is there, even his little flyaway hairs. ;) I'm working on the WIP animation now, so that'll be up next. And then guess what? DARKEN RAHL time! Drawing a villain will be fun I think. ;)

[edit: WIP animation is up! [link]]


8x10" White Prismacolor pencil on black illustration board.
~25-26 hours total.
Previous WIP here: [link]

This is my most favorite tv show (based on author Terry Goodkind's "Sword of Truth" book series), and it recently got canceled, but I still have hope that it will eventually be picked up again for another season (at least), mostly because the fandom is amazing and does not ever give up.

I am planning on doing portraits (and posting the WIPs with SOS info) for all the main characters in the next few weeks and months. I do not own or claim ownership to any of these characters and no infringement is intended. I am not making any money from these, and my only goals are to share my love of this series and my artwork with other fans, and (hopefully) raise awareness and help make new fans!

The more of us there are, the more of a voice we have!

AMAZING!!! I love Zedd. I just got finished with Naked Empire and now i am in to Chainfire. I was mad that they cancelled the show. Keep up the great work.

Yeah, it had so much potential! Perhaps it was a few years ahead of it's time, or maybe it's one of the shows that helped pave the way to other fantasy series. :)

Thank you!

I haven't been on ST since I started this fan art project (I got in trouble for posting my first WIP there :O), so depending on my next pieces and commissions (and how open they are to WIPs online), it may be a while till I get back over there.

?? What is going on there I wonder. We all post WIP's all the time...hmmmmm, not sure I get that.

It wasn't the WIP, it was the fan art. :( I got 'warned' because my reference photo was from a show, and then my post was taken down. They were nice enough about it, and I understand them not wanting to let people post copyrighted photos, but it was kind of weird. No one ever said anything when I posted my Mina & Dracula piece, or my Joan Crawford piece, but this is not ok? Esp when I wasn't doing it for profit or anything. :(

Oh well!

Oh right, fan art....I haven't posted any of mine there as it's graphite or digital and I only post my cp work there. I get what you're saying though, and, I agree. Fan art is fan art.....and they certainly haven't given me, or others, grief for posting drawings done from cp books for practice. Same thing to me, if you aren't selling it, and you state that, why does it matter?

It's an arguement that doesn't make sense for sure.

Thanks! It looks a *lot* better in person than in the scan. When I get them all done, I'm going to get photos of each one so they show up a little closer to 'real life'. :D

scanners miss a LOT of the detail work.
my scanner hates purple, which doesnt bode well for me since its my trademark color, lol!
Reply
:icongirlgoth:
Girlgoth Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2010
Yes! I just do basic post work on these scans (crop, color correction/saturation, and levels) because removing the scan lines and extra texture it waaaay too much work for each one. :P

The color ones? Ugh, don't get me started. Yeah, the scanner adds all kinds of blue and magenta on it's own, with color involved it's a nightmare. Still good for WIPs that fit on the scanner bed though. Luckily I know PS and photography enough to photo my work and color correct it in PS so I can put it online, but I've already decided, when I get rich and famous from my art :rofl: *ahem* I'm just going to hire an assistant to do all that stuff for me so I can just make AAAHHHRRRRTTTTTT. :D (that's the plan anyways ;))

ugh dont remind me, i do so much stitching on my scans for posting here cuz i usually work big and my scanner is just a normal size bed. i gotta find someone around here that can do big size scans for me, make life way easier.

that's a great plan you have, i need a plan like that!!!

Girlgoth Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2010
Can you find a copy shop that does that? I knew of a few when I was doing some larger projects that had giant scanners. Esp with thumb drives, it would probably save you a lot of work!

:iconartman2112:
Artman2112 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2010
i certainly would like to find one, especially now that i'm offering prints on another site, the better the scan i upload the better the print will come out. but who knows if i'll find one around here. we dont even have a pizza place that delivers!
