    Chow 171 :: Ti'phar of the Ararita

    Chow 171 :: Ti'phar of the Ararita

    ROUND #171:: Ti'phar of the Ararita
    DESCRIPTION

    Ti'phar of the Ararita

    Thank you to Sorknes for this suggestion.

    Ti’phar
    is the third wife of Tao’a’teh ruler of Ararita a small planet known for its civilizations artistic beauty, whether it is in architecture, sculpture, painting or general creativity. Ti’phar is determined to be more than a pretty consort for the king though: and she has become a force to be reckoned with in the political system of the planet, having established herself as Prime Minister, and rumours persist that the real power lies with her, rather than her husband. She has become the chief negotiating officer for inter-galaxy matters of state, and her upbringing though formal and staid, has been useful in diplomatic situations where tact and empathy have been important.

    She sees no conflict with her two offices, that of Queen and central executive officer, and is a stickler for formality and custom, precise in her dress, and fashionable to a fault, following the strict rules of her planet’s customs; decorum always being a priority, which dictates modesty and elegance. She is proud, graceful and sophisticated, and above all clever.

    Her species are known for their beautiful looks; humanoid, tall, thin with elegant refined features.

    Open to interpretation, but stick to the description. They are humanoid, but you can elaborate on that to a degree within the limits of 'humanoid'.

    Nice topic. Flex them creativity muscles. Probably end up with a Bayonetta/Sarah Palin futuristic Mass Effect/Queen Amidala type.. err.. nevermind. Nice topic.

    This should be fun. Grace and elegance and alien-exotic.

    Inspired by portraits of queens.
    I took a break after about 30-ish minutes of working on it, came back and decided to post after doing some quick overlay layers.. still in the very early stages

    tonysaurus: Like the idea, good start. If you are interested, Michael Whelan did an illustration for 'The Martian tales of Edgar Rice Burroughs' One is called The Princess of Mars and has double armed humanoid creatures. If you go to his website and search 'Princess of mars' the illustration is there. Slightly different way of doing it but may be of reference.
