Edit: I added some freckles at the edges of his cheeks, to better match his novel description and also to inherit his deceased mother, Meiria, an illustration of which I am working on at this very moment... and she's pweety :iconloveloveplz:

Heyho ^_^

Hope you aren't mad at me for not posting anything recently, but I have been working, on and off (in between rediscovering the boredom of Warcraft III >.<), on this little deviation that complements the later deviation I have uploaded.

Devout (Righteous, Fair) Human Guardian: Brunar Darick :D
as the twin of the Heavenly Human Angel: Dhonia Darick

and <<< So cute ^_^

Did you know this is the first time I make Brunar in his human form in... 1 year and a half :O The last time I drew him was in the Foresaught Drawing from a long LONG time ago.
And YES! You don't see things! HE'S BLONDE! Well dirty blonde. I still step on my heart when I imagine him... he's blonde... :icondesperateplz: Uhhh...

Well... what's the sword in his hand? That's Conorias' War Sword, The Blade of Revealing: Gervela. That's a great morf from what it had been before: [link] a crude claymore to a stylish one edged curved sword with the added Metal hilt, gold filigree and blue motif shaped Gem :happybounce: I took some time to come up with that design... about 20 minutes of remakes and sketches before I finally made it as such ^_^

I decided to keep the same Background for him, yet inverted horizontally, because quite frankly... I forgot what filters I used for my leaves brush to make them look as they do now :icononionwoeplz:


Oke... Very will... now if you'll excuse me, I will swoon over him. :iconinloveplz: I've been meaning to for an entire week ^_^

I hope you like him and Cheers!!! ;P
And here's a little music for you ^_^ : [link] - It's Kashmir by Led Zeppelin remixed in Sony Vegas :)

I simply adore the sword :D is the rose part of it O.O?

No, the rose is just a flower he loves.
He gives it to Dhonia at Diferion (The Lake of the 40 Towers), as a "Forgive me!" gift, for acting so brash and witless towards hers and Elril's love, yet Elril finds it in Dhonia's room and, out of jealousy, wishes to rip it to shreds, but is stopped by Conorias (his great grandfather) who takes the flower for safe keeping.

Elril can be pretty dimwitted at times xD but that's the fun of making such a versatile character :3

It would have been nice a sword with a rose as a handle ^^.

Ok enough with the rose XD. am uitat sa-ti zic cat de mult imi place cum arata Brunar :love: Cred k el e unul din preferatii mei, la felul cum arata.

It's called shading - the merging of light and darkness on a picture xD And yeah people have told me that, though... It's dark... >.>

I'm aware of what shading is. I'm also aware of what midtones, hue, and saturation is. Just because I was trying to mix up my words of writing so many reviews doesn't call for you to get snappy.

Yes the two links are the same ( for some people one of the links don't work thus I put two different link for the same journal so no one can have any problem to open it )

All this is already written on the group blog " Recent Journal Entries " see here >> [link]

x3 Did want to come back to you and comment on this after looking at your gallery!
I definately think these 2 pics are (technically) some of your best. I adore his face, something very classic about the way you paint them, can't quite put my finger on it! Otherwise, the shading is divine :o Did you use any ref pics? The highlighting is just great on his shirt :la: Such soft hair ^_^

Classical :flirty: First time my drawings have been given that attribute. I just shade and draw how I feel best suits the characters :D People have said my shading style is too dark... that it's not "in the mood" >.< Yeah if you spent all your days looking at cell shaded anime, with 1 shade might I add, of course mine will appear too dark.. Need to work on the hands shades... :icononionwoeplz:

Absolutely no reference picks. It was all done from imagination, especially him. Brunar's sketch doesn't have shades: [link]

:giggle: Soft hair... That's so strange to say about an drawing. But I guess ^_^

Faelourn Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I think 'classical' is the right word anyways, certainly a style that's both soft AND refined. Like, sometimes with the soft tools edges can look fuzzy 3: Or it could be simply that you avoided drawing a retarded nose xD My #1 reason for avoiding human faces myself. lol Even with refs, fail ._.

Yeah, wouldn't worry about the rest of anime, I disagree too, I can see elements of anime in your work, but as you said it's not flat enough to fit in with the stereotypes xD Maybe they have dark screens? I think the shading is very in the mood! Especially for these 2 character pics, again, it's the light & soft browns that make it! Devout indeed :3
I need to be more brave with my lighting, especially key lights and back-lit things. All practice I suppose ._. Siiiigh.

You should practice more with human faces, really you should. I'm not saying realistic faces, but make your elements fit with what you intend to make :D
And as for the lights, most, if not all my character sheets are light studies. My Etheral Series is primarily a light study :D

Considering the design of the sword took 20 min to make, I'd say it looks fairly good too :) But I kinna messed up with the metal hilt >.>
