The Matriarch and Drel by Aeonna The Matriarch and Drel by Aeonna
These two are characters from my comic Corner Alley 13 ( [link] ). They're not underwater by the way, there's just a strange, green light in the underdark.
This is the slightly edited version. Changes include some light tweaking and rock remodeling. I didn't think the result was different enough to merit a completely new deviation though.

Why's he got jeans and a wifebeater?

Hm, I guess it's a bit incongruous. It's the sort of thing he wears later when he goes to the Surface world, at which point he wears it maybe on the misapprehension that it's what Humans usually wear, but he probably shouldn't have this getup yet.

I had to look up wifebeater btw : (

Given Drow upbringing, he could be in danger.

This is nice. To make it look less like underwater, try changing the sizes and colors of the bg lights. :) Also, try to see if you can fit either stalactites or bats in there. :)

Yeah, I suppose your right. The lights look more like bubbles as they are now. Some sort of background definition is needed.

if she were human, her arms would get very tired very quickly...

those shadows look like they would've been 'fun' to do...
nice shading on the armour, btw

Hm... I see what you mean. Normally one would bend the elbows to lessen the stress on the arms. For this piece, however, I felt it was important that she held him away from her to achieve the wanted effect.

yeah, it wasn't criticism, just pointing out that, being a drow and all, she must be pretty 'superhuman' to do that ^^

:heart: your comic, btw ^^

I love CA13 so much! Drel has to be one of my very favourite characters. I love his relationship with the Matriarch, and this picture captures that so perfectly.

Man, I love CA13. I've been with it for over two years now and it just keeps getting better. I notice that the Matriarch has an earring, though. It's stylish but does that mean she had to modify her original ears as Noelle was forced to as a child (oh my, that would be embarrassing for her clan, to have a leader who was imperfect from birth...perhaps a foreshadowing of other unsightly faults).

I'm glad you like the comic! It is mainly the elves who use ear-lengtheners. The drow don't really care about that. Their vanity is satisfied with bucket-loads of jewellery instead.

It reminds me of Maxwell House coffee:

Good 'till the last drop.

It's just so charming, the drow matron holding this cute little drow kid at arm's length like, "Pfft," and he's like, "Hello nice lady."

That holding-at-arms-length thing is what made my mother hate this picture. @.@
Thank you for the coffee metaphor.

She doesn't understand how the drow work, I suppose; to me, what I've read and understood, that's pretty much how kids are with them: at arm's length.

If this is what you can do with coloration, I'd love to see you do a little of this to some of your webcomic pages. Especially if the story's winding down.

I know nothing about art but am seriously impressed.

Sitter här och kollar in konkurensen till serietecknarskolan och blir lite nervös nu när jag ser din nivå.
Såg även din serie, allt är jättebra! Tycker absolut inte du behöver färglägga den, jag föredrar svartvitt.
Tycker om hur du får rörelserna att se så naturliga ut.

Hoppas vi ses i höst,
Johanna
