Welcome to my character portrait gallery

For anyone who is wondering, Wednesday became 'black Wednesday' for me because I cannot draw mid-week!
In fact I'm sure the rainforests mourn Wednesday too by the amount of paper I tear through in frustration... so this is a blog for all who know what like it is to regularly shout at their pencils
Oh yes it's also all about fictional characters plus interviews with them, yeah, that too :)

Eyzith Arius

A stern yet tolerant woman, Eyzith Arius carries a personality that demands respect.
From the moment she enters the room she establishes an air of one who is highly organised, disciplined and focused. Standing an average 5ft 9in tall her presence is impressively domineering and intimidating. She doesn’t disclose her age but externally appears to be around 29 years old.

As leader of her people she relates the strict yet accommodating regime of her government. She exudes power and her well-measured manner of speech is grounded in an unwavering self-confidence. Eyzith is direct, straight talking and decisive. She is efficient to a fault, and unsurprisingly often viewed as a harsh authority figure. It seems to amuse her that some subjects believe she is callous. Eyzith explains that she takes a no-nonsense business approach to governing, she believes in the adage of rules are rules. Her diligence and patience shine through as she takes time to detail the consequences of certain choices within their society. A worldly and knowledgeable woman she values honesty above all else.

Whilst never condescending or overly sharp, Eyzith’s softer and pleasant side is overshadowed by an austere nature that makes everyone sit upright and act on their best behaviour. Of the few jokes we dare crack none manage to raise more than a polite smile. As she exits we can’t help but shudder and draw comparison to that iron-fisted tutor who first instilled fear in our tiny childish hearts.
