Beautiful sylvari and the moa is so cute :)   Amazing job on the coloring, really striking.

That is one cool B-Day present!

I really love the light in your pieces, it's mysterious and flattering at the same time

Agreed with Morag D, you have a way with lighting. And colours. I love the contrasts and how natural they look, along with how light grabs the attention and makes the character really stand out. :)

Yay!

*Hugs moa*

Ok... maybe I wasn't descriptive in my praise and I think you took it the wrong way :qq:

But the characters are so realistic and well done. But that moa is just... its soo adorable oh my gawd!

*Hugs moa moar*

Incredible, Gumboots. The level of detail combined with the softness of the image really has a nice feel. And damn, that face is well drawn!

So amazing.  *-*  Out of curiosity, about how long did it take you do that picture for your friend?

I haven’t seen more convincing sylvari drawings than these. Staggering anatomy detail. Good choice of lightning and colours, along with the in comparison perfectly minimalistic backgrounds. I wish to see more, so I hope you’ll soon feel the desire to upload more of your work, whether or not it’s related to gw2 and if here or somewhere else.

Can I use “Dreamer” as my desktop background?

@Murke
Thank you! It's very hard for me to say how long i spent on it, all i really know is that it was about a week spread between work and playing GW2 xD One thing i can say for sure is that i am super slow take my time (:

@TofuTactics
Thank you very much! Please by all means feel free to use it on your desktop

I'm not sure how I've missed this thread while modding about, but kudos to your work. It's absolutely gorgeous. I'm also tempted to ask how you made that wallpaper of your characters, especially since I've thought of doing something similar a few times now. I really dig the format. :cool:

I just wanted to mention that I really liked your Wintersday Calendar contribution.  Great expressions on those two asura!

@Doctor Overlord
Thanks overlord! had a lot of fun drawing these two (: I look forward to seeing your entry!

@Vingilot
Thank you very much!

@Frost Kisses
Thank you! If i didn't have to work or wasn't horribly addicted to GW2 i'd be happy to draw you something :'D

@Archaes
Thanks Archaes! The wallpaper is essentially a cacophony of textures and layer blending, if you're looking to try it yourself i'd recommend fiddling with layer blending modes to get the effects you want xD
Another tip i can offer from experience is to take your character screenshots in the Hall of Monuments! There is a spot to the left of the hallway that is nice and dark, never changes time of day and has really nice character lighting! (http://i.imgur.com/WSy8k.jpg > http://i.imgur.com/Y4quQ.jpg )

Really wonderful contribution.   Very nice job on those asura faces.  The whole scene really has a cozy feel.  Something one doesn't usually associate with asura but it works perfectly.   Well done!

Your art is seriously gorgeous.
That sylvari was almost heart melting to look at, and the wintersday picture was adorable!
I love the painty style you use.
Do you have any other website (Devart, tumblr, etc) you post on? c:
