Dragon Age Surprise Art Exchange #1 [CLOSED]

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 7, 2016, 7:51 AM
:new: CLOSED.

Hello, Thedosians! :D

To break up our weekly comment projects, I decided to try something a little different...

I call it the "Surprise Art Exchange." :P

Basically, the idea is like a Secret Santa event; you make a wish for an art piece you want created, I do a little artist-pairing magic, and you get surprised with your request. :)

Hopefully, if this goes well, this will be the first of several such art exchanges. :D

If you are interested in participating in this event, here's what I'll need in a comment on this blog entry:

1) A statement that you are willing to fully participate in the event - this includes making art for others, not just wanting art made for you!
2) Your art request - please keep it relatively simple and make sure everything is clear. Links to descriptions, references, etc. are appreciated.
3) The medium in which you specialize - fic writers are welcome and encouraged to participate. Listing medium will help me more appropriately pair artists.

The deadline for signup is Tuesday, June 14th. After that point, I'll start sending out notes to all participants, and we can begin. :D

Let's spread some more Dragon Age good cheer, shall we?

Onwards!

Dorian looked up as the Inquisitor entered Skyhold’s tavern Herald’s Rest. “Staring? Oh bless the Maker, no. Just noting the similarities.”
“And what similarities would those be?” Inquisitor Ethan Lavellan asked.
“Our dear warmaster’s posterior bears a striking resemblance to Felix’s.” Dorian informed his companion as he sat down across from his at the table.
“Felix? Now there’s a name you haven’t mentioned in some time.” The Inquisitor answered quite surprised.
“Yes… well… it’s just that I bumped into Alexius this morning. And as awkward as that was it now has my mind reeling like a waterwheel out of control.”
The two men sat in silence as the tavern’s bard started her singing. Once again something about the elf that lived one floor up.
“I didn’t think you wanted to see him?” the elven inquisitor asked care

9) :iconleoniehawke: - Small - DA:Inquisition (FanFiction)“Did they really have to bring a giant with them?”, Inquisitor Talasyn Lavellan asked annoyed while she dodged an attack from a nearby Tevinter Mage.
“They are Vints, you never know what they will do next.”, Iron Bull replied and stroke down another opponent with his huge axe.
The Qunari turned around and focused the giant.
“Well, that is quite a big guy, better let me take care of him.”, he announced to the other group members.
“Wait. Compared to him, you are small too.”, Talasyn replied with a raised eyebrow.
“Yeah, but you guys are even smaller. Also no one is smaller than you Kadan, except Varric.”
“I'm a dwarf you know, we are all small.”, Varric replied.
“Exactly. Let me handle him now.”, The Iron Bull charged forwards.
“I'll show you, who is small.”, Talasyn smirked and followed the Qunari.
Despite his look, Iron Bull was pretty fast but Talasyn knew that she was faster than him.

If there was one memory that Niamh Lavellan truly hated about her time with the Inquisition thus far, it was the disaster that had been the Winter Palace. When she recalled just how terribly she had been treated, a coppery taste would fill her mouth. The irony of the whole ordeal infuriated her.
Halamshiral. The end of the journey. A place that was meant as a sanctuary for the Elvhen, now another display of the ridiculous grandeur of Orlesian society.
However, that night had been a several weeks ago, and the abus

Hi! I would love to join and will make arts!

I would like a pic of my Inquisitor (there's a bit of info about him under the pics, but more can be provided on request.) I don't mind what the context is! :D Arts: karasunokazu.deviantart.com/ar… karasunokazu.deviantart.com/ar…

Some cruddy screenshots: lh3.googleusercontent.com/-QYb… lh3.googleusercontent.com/-m23… lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Tv5…

I will make a traditional artwork (possibly digitally coloured depending on time!) of a character or OC of your choice. Prefer OCs.

1) *makes screeching sounds * I will do arts! Yes! 
2) Your art request - It'd be super lovely to see something with Sebastian. There's not much art out there of him and he's super lovely and adorable. As for scenario, I'll leave it up to the artist to if they want to do just Sebastian being cool with a bow (or just being incredibly handsome <3 ) , or if they'd like to do a romance picture of him with my Hawke Puppy luff by Arkillian . Either would make me super happy :love:
3) The medium in which you specialize - At the moment, I'm focusing on digital colour illustration.

1) It should be fun participating, so let's do this!

2) Anything about my Inquisitor, Daerdir Lavellan, would be very cool.

3) I am a writer. Writing might not be as flashy as other art forms here on dA, but I'm happy to write anything pertaining to fantasy fiction, especially with a topic a flavorful as Dragon Age!

Hey, could you provide a physical description and/or screen capture of Daerdir?
Reply
:iconthefreemasongamer:
TheFreemasonGamer Featured By Owner Edited Jun 17, 2016  Student Writer
I could work on getting a screen capture of him soon, but I can provide a physical description here for now. Daerdir stands tall at around six feet, notably taller than most elves I would imagine, and has a fit although lanky physique; he maintains a healthy body to coincide with his growth of mind, but he simply lacks much in the way of musculature. Much like his twin brother, Raithon, Daerdir is known for his fiery red, almost orange hair that falls to his shoulders. He also exhibits rich brown eyes flecked with red, giving them a chestnut-like hue much like his father's, and his skin tone favors the peachy complexion of his mother's. Daerdir also has a long, narrow scar over the right side of his upper lip left by a particularly nasty cut he once sustained during one of the many brawls he had with his brother in their adolescent years. Also, Daerdir's ears come to a much taller point than his brother's as they almost reach the top of his head. Finally, he proudly wears the vallaslin of Dirthamen, the Dalish deity of secrets and knowledge. The vallaslin's design is similar to this: 66.media.tumblr.com/ca022bab3b…

I hope this helps!

1.) I'd like to participate, too :3

2.) Something with my Inquisitor Estelle Trevelyan? Wednesday my empty arms were open - WfL (3/7) - just Estelle in a new Inquisitor outfit or something with Cullen (please note that their relationship is not going past Trespasser events)... (She can be found various times in my gallery: chenria.deviantart.com/gallery… )

3.) I'm a digital artist ... I think I draw fluffy couple pictures best ^^" (That's what I've been told...)

Just a quick question: what type of outfit would you like your Inquisitor to be in? (formal, casual, armor, etc.?)
Reply
:iconchenria:
Chenria Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Estelle likes the formal Halamshiral outfit (either with trousers as in the games or as a dress as shown here: Stroll at Midnight )
But she also likes the "Inquisitor Pajama" or any random casual outfit. She is not that fond of wearing armor ^^" 

I personally have no preference and want to give as much artistic freedom as the surprise artist requires :3

I can offer traditional drawings of any kind from character portraits to complex illustrations. It will be done in pen and ink and most likely it will be black and white, unless the stars align and I want to use color. You can see what I usually do here.

Sometimes she'll still wear her armor, because she likes maintaining a strong and tough front. Other days when isabela or merrill can persuade her to, she'll wear her fine tunics and leggings. And a cloak of some sort usually!

Ahhhh! This is the best! I'm totally down to participate.

I'd really like to see something with my Inquisitor Niamh Lavellan allisonsaurus.deviantart.com/a… and her lover Solas. Literally anything would make me the happiest lady ever, but something hurt/comforty maybe Lavellan having a rough day and Solas comforts her?

I can do traditional or digital art, though I prefer digital.


I'm so excited!!!!
