Jeff himself!
 studied fine art at the university of Minnesota out of a lifelong love for art but never gave a though to trying illustration (though I have always been a devoted fan of the craft) until i bought a computer and a wacom tablet almost three years ago. Since that time I have focused on expanding my skills in order to establish a career as an illustrator. I have kept an open mind about what to paint and continue to try just about anything my imagination comes up with. Since fantasy art (and literature) has always fascinated me it was natural that I would eventually try my hand at it. At this point in my efforts i find it is time to get some of my attempts out in front of the best critics available, i.e. rabid fans, in order to get a little feedback and see where am with the thing.

I am fairly convinced that the picture I now use as my Forum portrait (see above) has been my lifelong muse and stalwart companion and caretaker. Her name is Eratinalinfalah (better sung than spoken). Since i am but a conduit for her inspirational energies, perhaps she can be my alter ego in Santharia:)

The Best Artwork Award 2007
Winning Picture: "Eckra the Cruel"

With the portrait of "Eckra the Cruel" our long-time member Eratin aka Eratinalinfalah decided this year's Artwork competition clearly in his favour! Eratin has been a contributor to the Dream for nearly five years now, creating beautifully detailed, exquisitely realised works. He draws both specifically for Santharia, creating works such as the evocative portrait of King Thar and the portrayal of the coldly beautiful Treanais for the Astyrhim entry; and also allows us to use many of the pictures which he creates for other reasons. Eckra the Cruel is another in a long line of truly professional works by Eratin; we are enormously grateful for his continued presence in the Dream.
