Sal Valia - Isher in Repose

This next piece is a little different - and I'm particularly happy with it and how it turned out as a standalone piece.'s not actually my first piece of commissioned fan-art for another artist's OC - but it's pretty close.  But this is definitely the first piece of art commissioned specifically in response to an artist I found through Cheasy's podcasts.

Sal Valia was featured on S2E2 of the Changing Times transformation podcast.  Through his participation, I found out about his excellent transformation-themed fantasy comic "The Out Of Placers."  I gotta say, he's really done an excellent job with world-building here.  A number of different, unique races and species - very different from the average fantasy tropes - he goes into some detail on the background on the podcast which I highly recommend.  The characters themselves are well formed and grow on you very fast.  This became an instant must-read for me after I went through the archives and I look forward to every new post. of the few webcomics that's ever resonated with me on a really emotional scale - ie. this strip.  Talk about sad.

Anyhoo....I love the character of Isher - and she does have some similarities to some of the other characters I've been working on.  After seeing this pic of her - I really had to commission something too.

Guard duty's really not the best time to be daydreaming.  Ya never know what those sneaky yinglets will get up to behind your back.
