Golden Awakening by keelerleah Golden Awakening by keelerleah
Commissioned for :iconlinka06: of her original character Lukian Zon.

This character was described to me as the "bad guy" of her novel. A very intelligent and tortured person. He carries 2 katanas with a strange style (although only one made it into the pic) and he has a series of tattoos on his shoulder and chest (you can just see some of the) ^^

I was also requested to paint him in a similar style of outfit as my previous 'Broken Desires' painting as well as a similar background.

This ones been done for a little while, I've just been so slow at getting stuff uploaded here... ^^;

No Critique desired
Painted completely (including the background) in Photoshop.
Time: About 3 weeks.
A few references used.
Note: the title was just some random one I made up.

Gorgeous job! I really love the details and design of the clothing. The lighting in the back is really beautiful too. I bet those commissions are keeping you super busy!

Why does "Golden Awakening" sound suspiciously like euphamism for "morning wood"?

Its just regular Photoshop CS. Everything is hand done with just a few simple brushes (I only use about 3 different ones in most of my paintings). Blending options are used a fair amount on some of the overlaying layers though, for the dramatic lighting/coloring.

Glad you like it too. :)

Three weeks? That's a lot of time. It was worth it, though, each single minute.

It's a wonderful gift your friend gets.

(Oh, and no need to worry about critique. Even though I sometimes give constructive criticism to experienced great artists, in that case it would be impossible anyway as I can't see anything wrong. ;-))

His clothing, his hair, how the light is playing with it, his weapon ... it's all just perfect and incredibly beautiful.

3 weeks is actually fairly quick for me (although my record for finishing a commission is 6 days). Its not uncommon for a single painting to take 4-6 weeks to finish. Its all the details zoomed in work that takes forever. ^^;

Glad you like it too! :)
