Japanese Woman # 3 (illustrated by Nicole Ingram)

One evening the dynasty of The Onmyoji was destroyed when his house, wife and mistress were all killed as his house burned to the ground. The next morning The Onmyoji was found sitting in the wreckage of his destroyed house. He was homeless and crazy and missing an eye.

Some people spoke in whispers, wondering what caused his condition. Some blamed the loss of his wife and house. Others believed it was the loss of his eye. Nobody spoke of a solitary fox taking her revenge for the loss of her lover.

This man is one of the many people who speculated on the Onmyoji’s insanity.

He appears in the P. Craig Russell adaptation of The Dream Hunters in issue # 4, on page 25 in panel 3.

I absolutely love Nicole’s portrait. Not only did she draw this woman beautifully, but the also added a lot of background details that really highlight the character. The colors are vibrant and the overall design of this portrait is gorgeous. This is one of my favorite portraits Nicole has done so far…
