The Story of Tamacier by BJPentecost The Story of Tamacier by BJPentecost
(Updates: Lightened and larger resolution should anyone want to use this as their deskytopper.)

Initially, I was just going to model a locket sitting on some journal pages but.... well..... you know me. I just can't do anything simple. XD It's a flaw. I'm not even joking either. It is easier for me to do a full illustration like this than it is for me to do a sketch. =P I wish I were exaggerating.

85% Blender, 10% Zbrush, 5% Photoshop. 60 hrs. Render: 1000 passes in 45 minutes on a Nvidia GTX 560. A little postwork in Photoshop, most heavily on the candles because I could NOT make a decent candle shader in Blender. I basically had to draw the candles in with Photoshop and that was not easy. XC Oi. I really hope they come out with SSS for cycles GPU-compute soon. *scowl*

If you want to know more about the characters in this illustration, here is Jessarah: bobbie-the-jean.deviantart.com… and here is Tamacier bobbie-the-jean.deviantart.com…

So beautiful. I love your work, the background you give us & your world. Are you writing a book? Such a shame to waste such a wonderful & eloquent imagination x

I love that there is actual sense-making text on those pages! and the trinkets, especially the amulet and the thing in the middle of the drawing. What is that thing? :p

Thanks. :) The colorful thing? That is a part of Tamacier's heart. If combined with the other pieces (the flower and a few other elements which are not present), that would be one step of many towards bringing him back from the dead. The compassy looking thing is an ethyrasmeter (eeth-er-OZ-mee-ter). It measures levels ethyric (magic, more or less) of disturbances in the air and the nature of those disturbances. The scepter is a fairly powerful ethyric artifact that when wielded by a competent magessine, can accomplish great things. The locket is tied to the amulet. It enhances its power but at a cost.
