Title: Ladies Of London
Name: Linda Bergkvist
To the left - Madame Caramelle, to the right - Josephina
I’ve mostly been doing work for my book lately, but at the side, I’m doing designs for a roleplaying games campaign I’m doing for my friends and me. We’re just going to have tons of fun and play, the setting being London in the end of the nineteenth century and the game system being Call of Cthulhu.
I’m skipping the major monsters, though, this will be more like murder mystery stories with a supernatural tone to them. Unfortunately, I don?t have much time to write the storyline nor to sketch the non-player characters, but I recently finished two of the female characters involved (the two prettiest ones, those are always the easiest to paint and design, aren’t they?) Next, doing two of the male ones, and then two more female and two more male before I’m done with the character images for the campaign.
I’m wildly happy with the face on the left one, as I personally think it’s the prettiest face I’ve ever painted. As far as pictures go, I suppose they’re rather boring and without backgrounds, but look at them as what they are ’ portraits of characters :]
Photo references used for the hand on Madame Caramelle, and for the frills and folds on Josephina’s dress. Also, I studied a bunch of beautiful Asian girls to get the features right on Caramelle - also, her corset is based on one of my own corsets :]
I’m not at home right now but I’ll post a few close-ups when I get home. Enjoy!
(edit, accidentally wrote ‘eighteenth’ century, when I meant ‘nineteenth’… right around the time when Jack was sneaking along the streets of Whitechapel)
