Commission - Possessed by drachenmagier Commission - Possessed by drachenmagier
Commission for ~cuddly-evil
A drawing of her LARP-Character. :D
And - of course - a copy for her partner in the game.

It was very different to only work with shades of gray and red. I initially wanted to use more colors, but then that would have - somehow - seemed unfitting. So, gray and red it is. And all the colors in between for the shading.

Still on the Guild Wars II OST while drawing. I love it.

As I said in my previous comment this is quite lovely. Very detailed without being cluttered by using different shades and shadows to bring the little things forward- not an easy task at all and I'm certain it took you a decent bit of time what with your chosen medium.

I wanted to give you five stars on impact but the colors almost blend just a touch too much. The reds and browns shine through as dark and severe which is perfect but I would suggest perhaps more variation in your grays and illuminatory colors. That way there would be a slight more contrast and the figures would pop forward a bit more- BUT that aside the coloring is still rather awesome.

I gave you a four star on technique for only one reason, your source of lighting. I have this problem too where I put a light source behind my characters and then don't compensate with enough darkness behind that source and in front of everything else in front of it. Technique aside from that is wonderful. I love how well you drew her feet though I feel they are perhaps a touch big compared to her hands. The details on her dress and his hat are perhaps my favorite bits, the way you shadowed and illuminated those bits is spot perfect.

Overall a marvelous job. You deserve a cookie.

What kind of commission was this? I'd like to have one in similar vein - like ~cuddly-evil, I'm strongly thinking of having you make a number of portraits of my characters ;)

What kind? I'm not sure I understand the question. :)
She bought the original A4-drawing, if that's what you're asking. I'm not that great with portraits though, I have to warn you about that. :D
