seven bells

Apropros of nothing, here's a work-in-progress concept PSD painting of the book character Sabriel I'm doing as a personal project. I haven't done any painting or figurative works for years, so I think this is coming on ok. This is only a crop of the full work, she's not got on her bell bandolier or backpack yet, and it all still needs some tweaking. You can click for a larger version if the mood takes you.


  1. is this from the garth nix series? i love those books! such a good series.

    ps it looks great so far, can't wait to see the finished work.


  2. Hi Jane, yes, it's from the first book (i've not read the other two). Thanks! :)

  3. This is so beautiful! I loved The Abhorsen Trilogy, what a wonderful depiction of Sabriel. Agree with Jane, can't wait to see your finished work.

  4. ALSO. you must read the other two books they are AWESOME. in fact I personally like Lirael better than Sabriel!!!! Big call I know but once you read the book you might agree!! xxxx
