DD well that's surprising.
Thank you ~ElindielForestStar and ^MzzAzn!

~LeilanAlseides comissioned a drawing of her character last year and finally I was able to finish it.
Actually this one was the last left picture I did for my comission-test run and I have no idea why it took me so long :/.
(I blame it on the armor - why so complex : O?)
But it was a fun piece after all, I always liked watercolors although I've become quite rusty in using them.
And Leil was so kind and patient : )

Yes watercolors and some kind of ink with very fine pigments for intense and bright colors.

I really like the clouds. very beautiful. obviously you are very talented, I feel the textures and general complexity of the piece illustrate this. I would like to mention though, I feel the hand in front of the body is lost. There are many shades close to skin color to ditract from it. I also feel that the hand/arm are the best part of this picture and give it most of its depth (very well done perspective) and it deserves to have more attention from the viewer. great colors and over all VERY well done.

Never realized how much MK Hotaru looks like a blood elf! How did I not see this sooner?

Very nice work, and very deserving of a DD! Congrats!

Out of everything there is to love about this piece, I specially love his hands! I find them to be excruciatingly difficult most of the time, and these hands of his are just so... magnificently posed.

Awesome respect for anybody who can do watercolours so well, that medium might be the bane of my artistic existence so I never touch it myself. T_T I love the colours and his pose is very dynamic as well, it gives the character life. :>

The detail is sehr gut.
I applaud you for the amazing use of Watercolors as well.
Though I have to say that the right eyebrow having the illusion that it's protruding from it's head made me giggle.
You have the approval of an unimportant individual, none the less.

Nomimo Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
It's a special kind of watercolors more like ink with very fine pigments (making it shine brighter) and basically a wet in wet technique while masking areas for the background and basic coloring for the figure :).
