HI VERENE!! *waves madly*
thanks for the luck, I would like to say that it hasn't got anything to do with luck but I have a feeling... what with only two people deciding my fate, I might need some :3

HI MORAG!!

Pffft, you're the kick-ass-and-take-names type, you'll be fine with it! <3

aww Verene, that's sweet (/hug)

on that note:

IT IS DONE :lol:

(provided the thing comes back from binding OK and then survives the mail OK so it's actually handed in) I suddenly have free time. Proper enough-time-to-get-bored free time. Which is mad, because I haven't had that for about three years :P not 100% free yet because my and brother's rooms need re-doing but after Thursday... nothing to do but play GW2 until mid September!!

anyway, I got madly chuffed that they ran another stresstest because I had  missed the last bwe due to work. Played with character creation for hours (as you do) and although I was completely and utterly dead sure I was never going to play Asura, I managed to make a really cute one. Damn :P . And the Sylvari are awesome but need manlier voices. Anyway. The impossible happened and Asura are invading my sketchbook...

Great character sketch Morag!   I agree with correllis, her expression does have an air of mystery :)  Very appropriate!

I always thought asura would be one of the later races I tried but after playing one in the last BWE they may end up being one of my mains.  They are so cool!.

haha yes expressions, I think she'd be one to look all cute and innocent and then curse you into a jelly and make a bone fiend out of you :P I'll definitely draw her more, if only to get to grips with asuran shapes and anatomy. I also want to draw my Sylvari(s)... and Eryn. Oh boy XD


<edit>
So I managed to draw Eryn :3 (yay!) - any resemblance with Rhona is deliberate, I'd love her to play Eryn if ever there was a movie made XD

The moment I saw the Asura in the OP then I definately had to say hi! Glad to see you're posting here as well. Don't think I need to say much else, already expressed my thoughts on some of your art pieces. Keep it up! =)

Cool sketch!  I like the hair style with the braids going over the tatoos, very interesting design.

HI Sera! nice of you to stop by here :D
The hairstyle is pretty similar to one of the ing-options for female Norn and Humans, and the tattoos show under that, so it's not exactly my design, but I'm ever so glad they gave me a distinct and fun hairstyle to use for Eryn because she just doesn't do boring at all ;)

So I got round to art trading with Murke, which was very cool and a lot of fun!

Thanks!   Getting a still of the final version helps with viewing, but it is interesting seeing the layers evolve :)

Murke, you're super welcome, I love art trades and I love what you did for me too :3

Doc, no problem! I should have thought of that, just didn't want to post two versions of the same thing (and I ALWAYS forget about spoil tags >.<). I pretty much paint on a single layer, normally even figure and background on one (although this time I did keep the background separate), it somehow supports my workflow. Also, I have to pay more attention to what I'm doing and it feels more like proper painting ;)

Gumboots, nice of you to stop by, and thanks! I have a thing for purple and neon green, incidentally that'd be the colours my own OC would be most likely to appear in ;)

Ordinarily I'm not in the business of halloween-themed art, but I kinda needed to get this out of my system quickly :P



version with bg:

thank you guys! *hug*

So sometimes you just have a shit day. Sometimes, even Eryn needs a hug.
Took this for an excuse to semi-introduce another one of my OCs, Elyott, who is the father of Eryn's second son

Really great Halloween picture.  The colored one is really striking.

Awww, norn hugs :D   Though that's bit more than just a hug (not that you'll see me complaining).

haha yes Norn hugs.. although he's not a Norn. Well, technically, neither is she, but she lives with them so whatevs ;)

So it turns out people are interested in the chap who suddenly made an appearance in one of my paintings yesterday. Well, then I’d better make an effort and introduce him properly.

This is Elyott Drake, born of Kryta, a street dog in his youth, mercenary, prize fighter, occasional hitman and explosives expert (the scar comes from one of his earlier experiments). Despite his rough existence he has a cheeful personality and (mostly) easy temper. Quick wits, a quicker mouth and a habitual disregard of authority have landed him in his share of tight spots. In one of those, he met Eryn.

The two share a casual on-and-off relationship. He pokes fun at her secretive manner but respects her need for solitude and personal space. Despite herself, she can’t help liking him, and she finds herself sharing some of her past with him. He knows of her immortality, which is something she almost never confides to anyone. He’s also the later father of Eyulf Drake, Eryn’s second son, although that hasn’t happened yet at this point in time.

[Eryn’s first son is called Elgyr and is now a grown man; his father is Wulfgar Trabane, an infamous Norn tribesman, with whom Eryn had a brief, unromantic stint (not knowing she could become pregnant)]

Great work. I like that you create a backstory for the characters you use in your drawings. Its like it breaths life into them and they become more familiar (atleast to me :P ). I'll be sure to keep an eye on this page from now on.

@ Quaggan: thanks! nice of you to stop by. Truth be told my head is full of stories and characters and scenes and very few of them actually get processed into something that's worth sharing, but it's always lovely to see that people do appreciate my headworld ;)

@ Raven (sorry, I can't get used to Viatrix :P ): aaaawww that makes me all warm and squiggly inside *hugs* for that, you can have Elyott in colour!

*hugs* No worries, Viatrix/Mina/Raven is currently having an identity crisis herself so she can answer to any names rofl.

And love the 'cel' shading attempt! I'm not really a fan of cel shading in general (most of it maybe due to my inability to get it right haha..or maybe when I think of cel shading, I think of cartoon style rendering) but I really like your take on it since it borderlines cel shading and painted look!

I love the hugging drawing, it looks sooo warm and cuddly. :) And the cel shading in your newest one is an interesting mix of traditional cel shading and realism... looks almost like it was done with vectors. He has such a cute smile!

The hug drawing is so tender.

I like Elyotts scar, and as Pery says, he has such a cute smile.

Thanks for the background story of Eryn and Elyott :D  It's always cool hearing that kind of stuff.

So you're a believer in human and norn being able to have offspring too (even if it's an unexpected occurrence)?   We need to start a petition with ArenaNet to change their lore ;)
