"The Doctor Is In"
 
   (no, not that Doctor)

So, as some of you may recall, our own Pearson "Doc" Mui is an intrepid hunter of commissioned artworks, particularly during con season, and the Moy brothers (no relation) are more or less our go-to guys for many of those. They've done some very fine work for us over the years, most of which can be found over on the Symphony of the Sword commissioned art page and/or scattered around the Forum.

Well, today was Day 2 of the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, and our man Doc was on the scene as ever. This time I armed him with an artwork spec I was concerned might be a little too fiddly for the purpose - it seemed very simple when I started writing it down, but by the time I was finished I realized how crazily detailed it was and wasn't sure whether anybody would be willing to take it on in a con-commission setting.

But Phil Moy [N.B. who is not the same person as Phil Moyer, remember] did, and boy howdy.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to:

Fig. 1 Commander Anthy R. Tenjou MD FRS IPSFR - ship's surgeon, IPS Valiant (NCC-06041). High Priestess of the Cephirean Free and Beneficent Church of the World-Engineer; Duelist of the Order of the Rose; recognized authority on battlefield medicine; pâtissière; paranormal investigator. Quite possibly the only genuine witch doctor serving in any major 25th-century space navy. Just relax. Everything's going to be fine.

   Actually, he's not going to be at Acen this year. He and his brother are going to be at a con in Minnesota.

According to Phil Moy, he was pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Since I have their contact info, I don't really have to wait until convention time to get a commission. However, that's when my finances are usually fairly stable.

You should be sharpening your fork. This is grown-up Anthy, she knows what she's doing. :)

Also, to answer another question asked above, believe it or not I only just thought of the "witch doctor" joke while I was writing the caption.

   My first thought on seeing the picture was, "Wow! Is that Anthy?!" And then I read the caption:
>pâtissière;

I now have an urge to photoshop a chef's hat on the drawing.

> This is grown-up Anthy, she knows what she's doing. :)

I think it's likely she knew exactly what she was doing when she made that curry.

Different congregations. The Cephirean one is to do with the office of the Pillar. Chip claims to worship Corwin in his capacity as Norse god of mecha.

Very nice! But I thought Anthy was a staff-fighter. Why does she have a sword instead of (I'm blanking on her staff's Name, Rosenjager or something)?

(And why did I register over three years ago and never participate? I actually tried registering again before logging in...)

Anthy is (as the caption indicates) many things...

>Why does she have
>a sword instead of (I'm blanking on her staff's Name, Rosenjager or
>something)?

This is a picture from the future! (Specifically, around-about the spring of 2412.) That's a sword she doesn't have "yet" (ca. spring 2410, where Symphony No. 5 has been a bit stalled for a while). The picture was simply too awesome for me to hold it back until it became "current".

>(And why did I register over three years ago and never participate?

That's a question I fear only you can answer. :)

   One thing I wasn't consciously expecting when I specced this image was how steampunk she'd end up being. I should have realized that would be the case, because steampunks are basically pirates with Machine Deco sensibilities, and she's wearing a gearwheel amulet - but it never really occurred to me until I saw the finished product. Not that this is in any way a problem; I adore this piece, and a little more every time I look at it. I'm just saying.

Well, that's fair enough. It's his holy symbol, after all.
