Dresden Files: The Chariot by Autumnflame Dresden Files: The Chariot by Autumnflame
FINALLY IT'S DONE

it only took three days of doing nothing else

(Undoubtedly there are people who could've gotten this done with just three evenings, but I am not one of them.)

Fanart of Karrin Murphy as the Major Arcana card, the Chariot, to give to Jim Butcher as a gift at a signing. (Hence the mad dash to get it done, after way too much procrastination.) ~shadrad did a piece of Harry as the Fool, and then we ended up assigning all the Major Arcana out to characters and I did Murph as a companion piece, since she's my favorite. :)

el-oh-el wings. Added on a whim. The glow of Fidelacchius was a whim, too, which ended up being a pain in the ass to figure out how it might rework the shadows on the motorcycle, and I still wasn't really all the way. Eh, there's a dozen places I could pick at it, but I'm just glad it's done -- was my first major piece in a long time.

The best-looking Murphy I've seen yet -- and I've seen a lot! Fidelacchius looking mighty good, too!

Love the sun/halo symbolism as well. It's the only type of halo I've seen look good on Murph so far!

This is beautiful and very in keeping with the character.

This is easily my all-time FAVORITE piece of art featuring Murphy! It is so cool. I would hang this on my wall.

that is EPIC, but now i'm wondering what murph would look like if you put the glow Fidelacchius has onto Murphs wings and make it a bit more ghostly
