Hi Everyone! ^^
Wow, it has been a long time since I've posted anything here.
I've had this one finished for awhile now and I figured it was about time I get it up. I previously posed a head close up shot on my facebook page (link below) promising that I'd have this up in a week or two... and that was a long time ago. *sigh* But better late then never as they say.
I'm quite happy with this image. I spent a great amount of time working on the small details (the braids and outfit especially) and I was quite happy to finally finish it. I should also point out that this version I'm uploading here is slightly different then the finished commission, as sophiaexile wanted him to have a wide scoop necked collar (like some of Arwens dress from LOTR). I liked how it looked but I admit I liked this V-neck style a bit better, so that's the version I'm uploading here.
Painted completely in photoshop.
Several reference images used.
No Critique desired.

great work as always ~ <3
But, man, if he didn't do it by magic, or have someone else do it for him, his arms must have been burning something fierce when he finished fixing it.
OMG those braids. O_O How many hours did that take, I wonder...?
Awesome as always. Love the background and the light coming in from above, made him look sort of heavenly. Until, of course, I read the description and then was all, "OMG!! DECIEVER!" And I love the character's description. Will most certainly be buying this novel when it comes out.
By he do you mean the character? And if so how?
Either way I'll be looking out for it. I'm working on a book of my own, and even though it's done I still have a lot of rewriting and editing ahead of me, so I know of the masive work load. Good luck with your book!
I have a character similar to that. What helps me is to act out the scene or share the same emotion that I want the character to feel; I find that it helps a lot when trying to put it into words.
Good luck with your book!
