Varra, the Enchantress of Venus

Standard
02VarraTriptic_StarTwo

Great power in a petite format. The wicked silver fairy of Venus.

Just like in the post dedicated to Berild, this time we bring you Varra, heroine of second volume of the Illustrated Stark: Enchantress of Venus by Leigh Brackett. Just like the first and the third book, illustrations and cover art are by us, StarTwo, and it’s published by the sci fi fan favourite, Cirsova Publishing.

Varra definitely struck an impression with the duality of elfish beauty corrupted by an inner evil that can crush you if you stand in her way -unless you’re Stark, of course. And yet, honest in her daring boldness and ambition.

As for all other characters, we received a description of Varra, who is a Lhari, and we added to her personality aided by reading from the volume as well.
This is from the wonderful information from the pre-production document we got from Cirsova:

The Lhari are described as having “alabaster skin, …eyes that were all colors and none, like the dawn sky, …hair that was pure warm silver”

Very much like an evil elf princess. She’s described as wearing a short red tunic and a leather falconry glove on her left hand (and a falcon to go with it). (…) Stark at one point calls her “witch with the silver curls”, (…) “lovely, like the red fruit of the swamp tree that bears death in its pungent sweetness”.

Her irresistible wickedness is like a red beacon warning you of danger, and yet, there you are, walking right towards it. Lured by the charming hazard dressed in red.

Volume 1, “The Queen of the Martin Catacombs”: Berild and Berild’s Lines
Volume 2, “The Enchantress of Venus”: Varra and Varra’s Lines
Volume 3, “The Black Amazon of Mars”: Ciara is right here and Ciara’s Lines

Surprise post! Berild, the Queen of the Martian Catacombs

Standard
01BerildTriptic_StarTwo

A striking beauty in the hot desert land of Mars.

Being as careful as we can in order to shield you from any spoilers, today’s bonus post is to introduce Berild, heroine of the just published first volume of the Illustrated Stark: Queen of the Martian Catacombs by Leigh Brackett. Illustrations and cover art are by yours truly,  StarTwo, and published by the sci fi fan favourite, Cirsova Publishing.

Berild was an instant crush, the sultriness countered with the weight of secrets made the perfect recipe for the classic femme fatale role, when you know there might be poison on those full red lips but before you know it, you’re already leaning in for a kiss.

We were provided with the descriptions and had ourselves a read of the volume as well, in order to grasp the feel of the characters and environments. Here’s part of the text we received from Cirsova:

(…) described as having smoke-grey eyes, silver-white skin and ‘hair…like a dark flame’. She is beautiful and proud, with a confident determination in all situations.”

And here is a description of  not only Berild’s looks but also her resolution in Leigh Brackett’s own words, from an excerpt of the book:

“Yet all through those blazing days and frosty nights, tortured with thirst and weary to exhaustion, Berild was magnificent. Her white skin was darkened by the sun and her hair became a wild red mane, but she smiled and set her feet resolutely by his, and Stark thought she was the most beautiful creaturehe had ever seen.”

Long luscious hair speaks perfectly for a femme fatalle, allied to red lips and contrasting with pale skin . Of course it helps if the long hair comes with staff to maintain it,  but we digress.

You can find Varra, the Enchantress of Venus of Volume 2 right ►here◄
