Ithloch Ianim and Silver Grace by MaddalinaMocanu Ithloch Ianim and Silver Grace by MaddalinaMocanu
:star:Etheral Series:star:
Erath Ianim - [link]

:bulletwhite::bulletblue::bulletwhite: Ithloch Ianim Heaventear :bulletwhite::bulletblue::bulletwhite:

Ithloch Ianim Heaventear is also known as Dhonia Darick.

Ithloch Ianim = Elder of Pure
Silver Grace = magic bound creatures, which look like deers, that are elusive and devoted to purity

:bulletwhite: The Silver Grace, Ithloch Ianim and the Ithloch flower :bulletwhite:

- The Silver Grace, also called afira, are hoofed creatures with silver like fur.
- They are magical in the fact they cannot be seen likely. They spend their lives amongst the shades of the woods they dwell in and blend with the shadows, making them invisible to anyone.
- Their coats are covered in metal like crescent shapes that glow when they reveal or conceal themselves.
- For people to see them they must be pure and trustworthy.
- On their journeys, after Erath Ianim had been reborn, the Twin Elders stumble upon a herd of afira and the leader of the Silver Grace, a proud and tall stag with horns like silk and eyes the shine of stars speaks to them. He assures the travelers that the herd will only reveal themselves if they are entrusted with purity. So Brunar asks his sister to appear naked in front of the stag and so the Silver Grace ties a bond to Ithloch Ianim, of grace and purity.

The Ithloch flower that glows in Dhonia's hand is the same flower her brother gives her after he had been Cursed. It later serves as the charm with which Brunar is brought to life as an Elder-galumir.

The pendant at her neck represents Elril's love. It glows bright white, her color theme as to show she is pure and devoted to him.

:bulletgreen: About the pic :bulletgreen:

As you can tell, Etheral Series is a study on light and it's influence on different colors and points of view.
Along the following drawings that I shall make for the series, concomitant with other works like M. A. B or studies on scenarios and :D nudes, i hope, you shall observe varying sources of light and varying intensity. I want to get the best out of the new ideas i have on 'lighting' ^__^

This drawing took me so much to do. The light on it was so hard to do, especially because this time there are 2 light sources, the first small that represents the light of the pendant and flower put together as a continuous light, and the other the stag which has light all over it.
Seeing that the stag actually turns his head towards her, I had to model the light in such a way it could blend easily and fluidly.
I kinna messed up on the hair, it looks like it's covered in chalk :/
The dress is done in a rather impressionist style, considering my last month has been spent studying them.
I guess I kinna overdid it with the shade at her feet, but I already took away one shade, didn't bare to take S3 away :/
I really like how the dress turned out especially around the hips, it actually looks like a transparent dress :O
The belt, dress line and sleeves were intricate and challenging to make, seeing they rely on the light for their shine, as the gems do :D
From a far, my elder sister said Dhonia looks ugly T_T but she's pweeeeety :D

Umm... ai incercat sa faci maneca de la rochie puutin mai inchisa a.i. capul cerbului sa iasa putin mai mult in evidenta? ^^ Intreb asta ptr ca primele locuri la care se uita ochiul sunt ochii si expresia personajelor/creaturilor , asta intr-o compozitie cu personaje si creaturi ^^. Ma gandesc ca 'punctele' care ar trebui sa atraga cel mai mult atentia ar trebui sa fie capul cerbului si expresia fetei :D
In rest e foarte tare! :aww: Imi place foarte mult cum ai asociat cate o creatura care sa se potriveasca cat mai mult cu fiecare personaj, atat prin culori cat si prin 'caracterul' fiecaruia :meow:
Ps: sper sa nu te deranjeze ideea expusa mai sus, in caz ca o vei considera utila, ma bucur :) ... altfel, eu doar mi-am dat cu parerea... ^^

Nu revin la desenele pe care le-am facut in Etheral Series din cauza ca ele au fost facute la timpul lor, in tehnica pe care o stiam pe atunci. Nu voi reface seria in tehnica mea noua ca ar insemna sa ma invart in jurul cozii. Insa am invatat mai multe despre lumina si mi s-a atras atentia cum ca cerbul i-ar manca umarul, dar nu conteaza :D E o greseala de moment.

Stiu cum e :D ... eu, cand desenez, ma pierd in desen si de multe ori se intampla sa uit sau chiar sa nu vad anumite defecte... ^^ Iar dupa ceva timp, in care mai invat cate ceva, imi dau seama de anumite lucruri omise ;) . Asta e semnul ca progresam :hug:
Ei bine, sper sa nu te fi deranjat :) ... dar observand asta la tine mi-am dat seama de un lucru la care trebuie sa fiu atenta daca voi face ceva in tehnica aceasta :aww:
Spor la lucru :tighthug: .

And it's full of symbols.

It's also a great light study. Each and every single time I try new things in terms of shading and lights ^______^ I learned a lot from the Etheral Series :D :iconselftaughtartist:

This reminds me of Diadre the priestess from a broadgame called "Red Dragon Inn."

Must admit that I don't think shes "one hell of a beauti" but neither would I say shes ugly. Okay compared to the commen view of a woodelf (I surpose that is what she is?) She might not fit the beauti standard. But she's a diffently not ugly.

But I love your color choice. Normally blue and white like this would be refered to as cold colors, but it looks quiet comferting. =)

She's not a wood elf. She's a Mountain "elf" a magic bound elf, a high priestess and because of the light she looks less beautiful. >..> Somehow beneath light sources have the gift of making the shades look awful on the skin, especially the nose shade. This is how she looks like in fact: [link]
I find her pretty and seeing as she is naturally human, with human beauty in a time where make-up didn't exist, as a middle-aged fantasy, I would say she would be a girl that stands out.
I never saw her as an exquizit beauty as Tinuviel or Arwen from LotR because she is a human of birth, so she has a natural rigidity. She's not a doll, nor a native elf and for sure there are characters in my novel that surpass her beauty, but what makes her more beautiful is her smile when she is near her beloved twin brother Brunar and her love, Elril.
"As regarding Ithloch Ianim, the blonde prince saw her with weariness the first time he set eyes on her. He thought she was the hún he recalled seeing at the Lake after the Assault on Orjber, but he was struck by her beauty and charm, which didn't burn his heart anymore. He saw her as a graceful, lovely being that shone brighter every time she was around Erath Ianim or Elril. He figured that she loved the two more than anything, for her face was lit by wonderful smiles each time they where with her."

Well they didn't have make-up like we know it today, but they did have some other things, like flour in the hair and rose nectar on there chins but yea I get it. =)
Still it sounds like you have a lot of life in your characters, and an explanation to everything in your world that's really good. =)
