altocello: (complicated colin)
In which I created an art remix of [ profile] k_nightfox's gorgeous high fantasy style fic, "A Bright Blade in a Shielded Sky," by representing Merlin's relationship with his hitherto unknown twin, the new King of Ælfheim, Emrys.

I was absolutely delighted (and terrified, again, lol) by my remixee this year; [ profile] k_nightfox, I hope you feel I've done your fic justice with this drawing of mine. I really struggled with finding a way to make this not just a straight up illustration, but an actual factual remix of your tale. In the end I decided that making art for it is really a remix in it's own right, and I hope you agree!

Title is taken from a line of Coldplay's song, "Viva La Vida."

I owe hugely huge thanks to my beta, [ profile] amphigoury, for holding me accountable for all those things that really do have to get fixed. *hugs* Thanks also to [ profile] rocknvaughn and [ profile] jelazakazone, cheerleaders extraordinaire, for their support as I agonized over everything. And more thanks go to the gsd chat folks (you know who you are! :D) for being there when I needed an extra boost of motivation.
