Knightfall by TereseNielsen Knightfall by TereseNielsen
Here's one you won't see on a book-cover. It's a bummer too because I think this was my favorite of all of my SW's covers. They had me painting the art for these before the book was even written just going off a loose outline and some character descriptions from the author. I'd finished this one and it was approved and paid for and I was just starting to paint the second of the two book set and then I was informed that the series was cancelled. So... as far as I know this one's never

This is beautiful! I like the characters depicted in this piece; they really stand out. The purple is really fantastic, and that's the color of my birthstone. Your work looks really good.

I simply loved the empress look, from her organic throne and crown to her stance and attitude. Of course, the technique is mindblowing :o
Truly beautiful Miss Nielsen ^_^

THYANK YOU!

It's so cool that you stopped by to say HI!

I'm going to come and check out what you have on Deviant now.
Are you coming to comicon again this year?

Miss Nielsen! :D I'm ecstatic of finding you here ^o^ it's not usual to find people I've met in real life around here.
Of course I'd stop to say hi ;) I didn't do it sooner because I wasn't aware you were around here. It is my custom and my way of doing things to politely greet those I've met or know :)

Thank you very much :aww: I must warn you though; most of my work has been deleted in the past few months, or rather, I've deleted most of it. However, you will still find some pieces and some sketches. I'm afraid we met here when I don't have much on display :(

I'm afraid I will have to decline Comic Con's call this year... I'm very sad for this, mostly because I'll miss saying hi to my wonderful acquaintances and friends :cries: eating in different places over there and of course, acquiring more books and paraphernalia for my diverse and peculiar collections ^-^ Hopefully I'll attend next year :nod: it all depends on how it fares with my writer/illustration projects. I really want to see you, Donato, Miss Guay, Miss Kraft and Randy with a published personal work under my arm. Something that shows who and what I am; of what I can do and be proud of.

Will you attend this year too Miss Nielsen?

Oh! before I forget; do send my regards to Lars :D
Also, I'm quite sure your angel book will be a smashing success; do mention in further journals when it come out on sale so your fans (like yours truly) may get a copy ;)

Hello there!! Another comicon has gone by without your wonderful presence! I do hope all is well with you and your creative endeavors!

I am slowly recovering from comicon, getting back to work and into a normal routine again.

I hope to see you again in the not too distant future

Best wishes always,

Terese

Hiya, Terese! :D Yes, I was unable to attend this year too :no: but I hope to be able to go next year ;) I'm going to plan things ahead of time for this one.
Thank you very much for your kind wishes, I appreciate them very much :blushes: Right now things are looking rather bright, but one must always look up for more knowledge, never close your eyes to new words.
I hope you are full of comissions and work. I read about your success with the Star Wars illustrations and am glad to see your work gets so much attention :clap:

:XD: I can imagine: attending Comic Con is always an epic stride, as it consumes not only our physical energy, but our mind's as well :nod: I can testify for that :lol:

I hope so too, Terese :hug:

You too :) take care and hope to keep in touch! :wave:

I found this in someone else's favorites gallery here, and just HAD to drop in to gush! :clap::clap: AWEsome work (and I'm with everyone else here--downright sad it never made it onto a cover!)!! I wish you were doing all of the LOTF covers--this style and your fabulous technique would far better suit, IMHO! LOVE this (and all your astonishing work!)!

Pity that this was never used, it looks great! The composition really works, it all fits together really nicely. I love how you depicted the two characters as well, they look great. :D I think your Danni ended up on a different cover, painted by a different artist but looking much the same as here! Anyway, I really love this piece, brilliant work!

I don't know if you're already aware of this, but the Danni part of the painting was printed in an issue if the Official Star Wars Fact File. I recognized your style when I saw it, but had wondered where the full painting was, as I couldn't find it on any NJO cover. There's something iconic about the central figure and her headdress - it's a real shame the whole ilustration wasn't used anywhere on SW material.

I think their names were Danni and Jorallen? Does that ring any bells?

I thought it was Danni, just had to get it confirmed :D I don't remember the other one though, but I'm not that good at remembering names anyway ;)

This would have been one of the best covers if it got published :D
