Character Portraits

Pandanzeia follows the 41 sapphic women (plus a dog and cat) of the senior staff and marine, explorer and astronaut teams of the flagship SNS Pandanzeia.

The story primarily centers around the two main characters, Fleet Admiral Abwaneema L'Shanwe and Captain Novalie Varg, as well as the ship AI, Pandanzeia.

I first started the project in early 2015 and completed all portraits of all the then existing characters at the beginning of 2016. Then, however, I started to go through them again to update them with new uniform designs and for some new character designs. In addition, I've also added more characters to the cast and therefore the portrait to-do-list, most notably the Fleet Admiral's staff officers in 2016. Georgdes and Coa'luol'i was added in the first half of 2017, and Torinth was added in the beginning of 2018. Throughout 2018 I've also worked hard on finalizing uniform designs as well as redesigning a large chunk of the cast, so the completion of the portrait project has sort of fluctuated wildly.

2020 update: Many portraits have been completed and more are in progress. Some portraits have been removed here due to character redesigns (ie Ameira the doctor) or more extensive edits. Four new characters has also joined the cast in 2020; Mercedes, Vaiki, Tin'acri'lla and Philippa!
