Thought I’d give the colour meme challenge a try so here’s my Cousland character “Helena” from Dragon Age Origins painted in set #2 (I’ve been playing it again recently, I’ve missed drawing her ;_; ). I might try out more, its good practice!

Who needs a fax machine or email in the office when you’re a lawyer who’s got rats and ravens to deliver your messages for you? More Choice of the Deathless fan art and its Vega again (because I think he’s awesome).

I wanted to produce polished digital piece with a semi-realistic look to it this time. It took me a very long time to complete, mainly because 1) I didn’t plan the idea ahead and just went along with the idea as it came 2) I was working on it at 300dpi, 3) I was trying out a different painting technique and 4) I suffered through artistic indecisions on Photoshop =__=;; (those can be a headache). 

Despite the time taken to complete, I did have fun working on the piece overall (however, in future I must remember to plan the image beforehand). Try reading the captions for more info on the artwork.

Would definitely like to try other CotD characters at some point (once I’ve envisioned them well enough).

Decided to try the “draw Dracula” challenge set by Sketch Dailies on Twitter but I’m late with it ^^;. You’ll probably notice the Yoshitaka Amano influence kicking in this image (my Twitter is ”@Piarelle” btw).

King Louis XIV, also known as “The Sun King”. Thought I’d try characterising him because I want to include him in a comic I’m planning. I wanted to give this image a classic, baroque painting, feel to it (hope I suceeded o__o;).

I’ll try working on a proper character sheet eventually.

Initially I only wanted to sketch a quick avatar image for a new tumblr blog I’ve created and ended up with this. Drawing cats on two legs is quite difficult o_o;

My new blog can be viewed here (is just an inspiration/reblog blog if you’re interested. I just didn’t want to clutter my main tumblr blog ^^;).

More CotD related art, this time I wanted to illustrate a cute scene featuring Vega and my player character (whom I named Sienna Madan). Vega is quite cool and collected throughout the story so I thought it was really sweet how fond he becomes of the player character towards the end of the story (depending on the choices you make).

I’ve played through the story a lot of times and towards the end, my character sometimes becomes a skeleton wizard (that usually freaks me out lol). The narrative concerning my skeleton wizard and his/her love interest was quite witty in places. So out of curiosity I did a skeleton version too and I couldn’t stop laughing at how it turned out (my apologies to Max Gladstone). I think I’ll stick with the fleshy version :).

…On a side note, this song came to mind as I worked on the images (I’m sorry, I just couldn’t help myself =__=;):

R’ok is a 5ft demon who looks like a praying mantis. He is also well-mannered and holds an appreciation for fine art :). He actually turned out much more intimidating than I imagined. 

I love the characters of “Choice of the Deathless”, so as a little illustration exercise I am going to try and draw my interpretation of each character one by one (am I the only person actually drawing fan art of this awesome text-novel-game?). If you’re curious about what CotD is, play a free sample of it at the Choice of Games website *end advertisement*.

Another portrait practice piece (of Keanu Reeves again), this time painted digitally on Photoshop CS2. I’ve never painted a proper portrait on Photoshop before, I usually quit before I get halfway through so I’m quite happy I pulled through this time. It was quite fun to work on ^_^.

I haven’t touched my watercolours in a long time so thought I’d practice some portrait painting using a picture of a young Keanu Reeves (he had such a big smile, though I think I may have exaggerated it a little).

I’ve felt like watching Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure recently, but I’m not sure where I left the DVD. Typical =_=.

My rendition of male “Black Magic” from text-based game, “Heroes Rise" (by Choice of Games).
The game asks you to name a celebrity whom Black Magic shares an uncanny resemblance to, so I’ve tried to base the facial features on a certain actor (I won’t say who), I’m not sure if it even looks much like him anymore xD; lol. I also wanted him to appear like he knows that the cameras love him and that he encourages their attention. I wasn’t too sure if he wore a mask or not but thought he seemed a little plain without one, so I gave him a little bling with holographic sunglasses that can be activated/deactivated at will (nothing shouts “I’m a celebrity” more than a fashionable pair of sunglasses 8D).

Really, it’s just too much fun trying to illustrate/design a celebrity, superhero, heartthrob :)!
