I'm really happy I get to share this new work with you.
It's been a long long half a year long time since I made my last Character Sheet which was Forlien: [link]
I must say I have come quite a lot since then ;P Rough Brush > Soft Brush, Meaningless Lines > Carefully masked Lines

As for those who don't know this is the main character of my "Lake of the 40 Towers" novel.
She is Dhonia Darick, a human from the region of Rothamik and along side her twin, Brunar Darick, she sets off on a journey to be reconciled with the elusive Irthala kin and accept their safety and guidance in time of war.


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

and <<< So cute ^_^

:bulletyellow: The story of the Pendant of Souls :bulletyellow: (as I told it to Legrandzilla)

When Dhonia arrives at the Lake of the 40 Towers (actually a fortress just outside the domain) she meets for the first time Elril Amrath. And their souls link to one another.
After a few weeks in which Elril woos her, he finally confesses his love to her and gives her his golden Pendant of Souls. This Pendant stores a small part of Elril's soul in it and it is precious to him. That's why he wants her to have it. So that she may always have him close.
As a side note Conorias takes his own pendant and this pendant and replaces the essences of their souls so what Elril ends up giving to Dhonia is his pendant with Conorias' soul in it. It's a safety measure Conorias takes. Later in the novel this pendant (she carries with her in the journey) is shattered which causes Conorias' death. So like I said, it's a safety measure. If Conorias hadn't switched the essences in the pendants, Elril would have been the one dying. (Why did he do that? Because he already was withering.)


I love her and I believe this is the definitive shape she is ever going to have ^_^

There's not much to say about this other than Procrastination has stuck with me on this one >.> 4 Days making it :facepalm:

The original Sketch didn't look all that great >.< Big head, Long face, Massive hands :iconfacepalmplz: A lot of flaws I had to settle with this deviation to make it look good :(


:iconstardivider1plz::iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider3plz:

I hope you like her and here are other works of mine if you might be interested ^_^
<<< I like my pixel art :D

What I like most about this work is the detailing on the eyes.
Everything else is pretty much perfect as well, but the eyes are really a captivating element.

It's really a beautiful piece! The attention given to the shading amazes me. I like the pose of the hands, the way she holds the pendant. I had thought of drawing a girl holding a pendant a bit like that, but it's really hard , so congratulations , you did it perfectly! The pendant itself is also mesmerizing !
And the story behind it is very interesting. :clap:

First off, allow me to say that I applaud your improvement. I looked at the older piece you linked, and you've come quite a ways. Congrats for that! :D As for this piece, your light sources are really well handled. The direct and ambient lights are both represented well, and combined with your shading, contribute to dimensionality of the figure. Basically, it looks real. The dusky color palette you chose works well with this, and I like the purples and blues. Overall, there's a sense of coherency and life to this portrait. The overall anatomy is pretty good, and the detailing on the necklace is quite lovely.

For things I've spotted, one thing that could be looked at is the seams on the shirt. From the front, you understand it to be a button-up collar shirt, with the seams flat and normal on the front, but the seams on the shoulders and around the arms have a lot of crimping and wrinkling, where it probably should be flat. If the intent was to do a puff sleeve, more volume would be needed, and the seam across the top of the shoulder would still be flat. There's also an area on the right side of her chest (her right) where it seems flat, perhaps in comparison to the seams. Also, around the eyes, it might be good to play with a dark brown instead of a pure black--black is a really rare color to find in nature, especially in a scene with a dusky color scheme like this one.

Overall, lovely portrait.

Puffed as in folded? Or puffy sleeves as in here: [link] Her sleeves are puffed up, that's what I understand through the comment. I hope you meant that :confused:

The second is more what I was referring to, asking whether that was what you intended. I think the important part of that bit of the crit is that what you intended is a tad tough to work out, and might confuse the viewer, or make it look like an error. It might be worth fiddling with it a bit, just to see what other configurations of the sleeve look like.

:iconmaddalinamocanu:
MaddalinaMocanu Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Well the sleeve as it is not intended to be puffy, but the joined part just under the arm - armpit - i hate that word - is made so it looks like sowed in extra material. Because this is virtually how I view her to sow clothes, I'm going to blame the lack of trimming and skill on Dhonia :icongrin--plz: That's ironic, but there you go. Sometimes characters come up with things that aren't actually in your reach or liking like these sleeves. I don't like them, but they are a sign that the character isn't very handy with the needle ;P

MaddalinaMocanu Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah I figured out that I don't really know how to do clothes :shrug: I imagine you are refering to the buttoned edge of the shirt. The Crimping and wrinkling there is intended because the shirt is not an ordinary shirt. It's made by her, with no actual pattern or design, she made it up as she though it suiting for her brother. The same kind of wrapping I have on my latest deviation with shirt that I am working on right now, so it's common theme of mine. The puffiness is not there.. It's just extra material on the ineer part of the arm which she - and I ultimately - made to fit in the design. I imagine that can keep cool on summer days :D

And about the eyes I've been told that many times by my sister even and I think I'll change it now, to see how it looks, though I have my doubts. I prefer to leave it as it is, in black tones because I don't know how to do real eye lashes >.<

Thank you for the feedback, even if I already knew it and remember:
"Stay out of the water..." GOD DAMN!! Amnezia is such a horrible sinister game. You should see this :iconscaredplz: <<< more like scarred : [link] It's so so creepy... I pitty Totalbiscuit... I really do :cries:
