Fantasy Portraits

image by Veronica V. Jones

Mercedes Rodrigo

A young prince in white robes and a yellow turban. A Draenei woman warrior with classic blue-purple skin and large horns. A pale Elf woman with long white hair and a mischievous gaze.

The portraits that populate Mercedes Rodrigo‘s portfolio are studies not only of physical beauty, but of fortitude. Her moody, complex works display figures that are often self-assured, and confident, but others seem emotionally overcome by their chaotic situations.

Ms. Rodrigo captures the strength of shamans and princes as proficiently as she does the cunning of rogues and adventurers. Whatever their station, or frame of mind, Mercedes’ creations are introspective, well-centered, and eminently prepared to face — and ultimately equipped to overcome — any obstacle they may encounter.
