Behold, the first color concept art of Sir Bregga Laydon and her massive sword, by the exceptional Nick Robles!
In the upcoming Shining Ascension comic book series, one encounter with the strange divine pulls Bregga into a world of danger, intrigue, and adventure. Can she survive?
Before she was a knight, Sir Bregga was a teenage mercenary! Here, Nick Robles has drawn young Breg in her mercenary garb. Her sword is almost taller than she is! In the first issue of Shining Ascension, we’ll get a peek into Bregga’s past. Isn’t she a cute young’un?
Curious fact: the scarring on her face (also visible in adult Bregga pics) was caused by a smallpox-like virus that spread through her home country.
Earlier this week, I posted concept art for Bricius and his brothers, three characters from the Shining Ascension series. Above, artist Nick Robles has rendered Bricius in the comic’s visual style. Yep, SA will be a painted comic, much like Nick’s other work on “Clockwork Angels” (reviewed here by USA Today). Nick has a splendid eye for color, and he also did a lovely job capturing Bricius’s grumpy personality. ❤
Nick Robles has created more glorious character art for Shining Ascension. Nick, you’re awesome! ❤
Maedoc the King’s Son (ax), Caratacos the Magician’s Son (spear), and Bricius the Poet’s Son (crouching) meet Bregga during her quest. Are they friends or foes? You’ll have to read the comic to find out! 😀
The half-brothers will appear in the Shining Ascension series, coming to the Internet early 2015.
Breg defends a ship the only way she knows how: like a boss. This partial battle scene was illustrated by the exceptional Nick Robles.

As the deadline nears, I’ll be posting oodles of art and some teasers for the plot! Stay tuned ❤ Click on the pic for better resolution.
