Hi guys,
hello old Nolani crowd and new whispers people who I haven't met :D

I've decided to have a peep at the all "new" art community over here, and move my things over, so to speak. I've been on GW for 6+ years and an active participant of Nolani for many years too. I love my original character Eryn (who started out as a GW paragon and who you will certainly get to know), the Norn, Mursaat and everything furry (and/or spikey). I work mainly digitally in Photoshop CS3 with my trusty but ageing Wacom Graphire4, and can sometimes be hired for commission work. I also greatly enjoy photography and buying armour for the sake of it.

If you're interested in what I'm generally up to (art-wise), head over to my DeviantArt page!




In terms of recent work, I'm in the wip stages of drawing up my OC Eryn as a Norn :D (but her design changed a lot since then) ....

.... and had some recent good fortune with this little piece in the Guru Wintersday Workshop

latest:

art trade with Murke

I'll leave it at that for now. If you want to know anything, just ask, I don't (usually) bite :P

LATERS

Welcome to the Library Morag!    Great to see you visiting here http://desmond.image....png&res=crop  

I think you'll like it here.  There is some really cool stuff posted here ranging from stories, videos, real-world sculptures and models, 3D renders, music and neat artwork, of course.

Can't wait to see more of your stuff here :)

Hey there Morag, nice to see you over here as well :)

Eryn is looking good and the stain-glass Dwayna is lovely - don't think I mentioned that back on the Guru thread.

a late welcome and that drawing of your Eryn as a norn makes me sad to know there won't be any polearms at the initial release. D: (besides the underwater ones of course!)

I loved that glass mosaic of Dwanya you did for the contest. I kind of wished you'd eventually do one for each of the gods. You have a great style. :)

I hope you post lots and lots of GW2 art in the future. I love your style, and your OC, and you did a fantastic job last Wintersday.

Thanks for the nice welcome, everyone.
HAI TZU!! *waves madly* I have a feeling GW2 will be pretty inspiring ;)

@ Dragons: guuuuhhhh I'd LOVE to have polearms >.< shame Aion was such a badly thought-out game (for pve, at least), because polearms + massive black wings + jumping off cliffs = epicwin :3

I'm in love with the style on the second work you presented.

It's starting to get kinda boing with this commercial-like style that most young artists use today, it all feels like it came from one author.

But your work is different and stylish, i love it!:D

I should do more traditional stuff... I kinda miss just randomly sketching something. So here's a random sketch. My Skyrim orcface ;)

That's a neat orc!   Sketching is always fun to see.  

I actually didn't know there were orcs in Skyrim :o   I've seen videos of the dragons, giants and 'Arrow to the knee' but I've missed the orcs.

I love your logo, it is clear, original and cute.  I get really tired of all the overly dramatic things, why do most game sites have to look like they were designed by teenage boys?

The portraits are nicely done but there is something strange about the underlying structure of the head shape in both, although possibly that is intentional?

Very neat sketches.   You're right those are cool-looking orcs.

Very nice pixel art!   Great detail on it.

Sometimes it is fun trying to make a low-rez image look right, kind of like drawing an illusion.

yeah, I'm quite enjoying it, it's fun how pixel art is so much like painting and at the same time so completely different :D this was just a practice thing, I'm hoping to make some GW related pixel art soon

I'm doing a new forum avatar based on the wings of my OC, but not sure whether I prefer colour or b&w...

Nice to see you here Morag! ^_^
I'm happy that you post your great arts here too :) Look forward to seeing more!

I think pixel art is really great, a unique way of drawing. Reminds me when I make cross stitching patterns. :D The wings look awesome! I actually like both color and B&W version.

I like the last one without the hair, makes it look more mysterious IMO.
