Dragon Age Surprise Art Exchange #3 [CLOSED]

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 22, 2017, 7:06 AM
:new: The event is now closed! Thank you to everyone! :D

Hello once again, fellow Thedosians! :wave:

In our most recent poll, I asked what kind of event you wanted us to host next here at Ages-of-Thedas. A massive 67% of you voted for another Surprise Art Exchange. So, another Surprise Art Exchange you shall have! :D

If you've done this before, it's the exact same event as our previous two. If you're a new participant, 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 behind the scenes, and you get surprised with your request. :)

If you would like to participate in this event, please comment below with the following information:

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 required. If you are open to literary interpretations of your request, please let us know.
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 Sunday, March 5th. 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?

To work! :salute:

The moment that Alora Trevelyan stepped into the war room, she knew something was amiss.
Prior to her entrance, her advisors were huddled on the opposite side of the table, heads joined as they attempted to keep their voices low. As soon as the heavy wooden door creaked open, they pulled away from each other and straightened to face her, each wearing matching g

Hi I want to participate, it was fun last time but I don't have time to put details in at the moment. But I could write something for someone and I don't mind if I have a written or drawn pairing. If this is okay for now ill post details later or could send references in a note if that works better

Your surprise artist has a few questions I'm passing along:

1) What is Gruia's personality like?
2) If they were to draw these characters full-body, what armor would Gruia have?
3) Is there a specific height for the characters that you have envisioned?

1)Gruia is a light-hearted idealist, very kind and compassionate but also very lazy, forgetful and irresponsible. He couldn't become a berserker because its hard to anger him and he can't hold on to it. He's the kind of hero that will try to throw as much charm and money at a threat as he can before lifting a finger to fight it.  
2)He's a rogue so anything leathery and light. He couldn't afford to be picky during the blight. 
3)He's of average height for a dwarf.

Could you provide a few lines about your Inquisitor's personality and her relationship with Cullen, just to get a better handle of how to approach the piece?

Espamistwalker Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Of course! Hmmm, let me try and compress the writing I have on Eve down xD 
Eve's personality:
Eve is generally a very quiet person and enjoys spending time alone wandering the battlements watching for any trouble. She is quite distrustful and it takes a lot for her to become comfortable around people. She is however, easily angered when her friends or loved ones are threatened as she is very protective of the ones she's allowed herself to get close to. She's ruthless when it comes to enemies and has very little self preservation. Although when it comes to the ones she loves she is very sweet and caring, albeit sometimes very forward with the flirting.
[sorry, as short as I could compress it down ^^; ]
As to their relationship I'd say Eve is generally the more forward one and likes to sort of tease Cullen (out of love of course :p !) But otherwise I'd say they have a very loving/close relationship c:

If your Inquisitor was drawn, would you like them by themselves or with their LI? If the latter, who is their LI?

:iconjickleberry:
Jickleberry Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
haha her LI is solas. <3
(ppffttt elvesss)

Depends on the artist.
If they are comfortable doing a cute artwork with both my Inquisitor and her LI then I would prefer that. (something adorable and not pg 18) =3
If not, then just my Inquisitor alone would be fine =)

Could you perhaps provide some references (and maybe description) of your Inquisitors and let us know who their LI's are?

Sure thing! :D

Caelestis: Female Human, Mage, Cullen. She's good by nature, always kind, generous and helpful to others. Neutral to Chantry. Believes in freedom of choice for Mages, but still wouldn't completely disregard the Circle.

Art by me: fav.me/dal51qn and  fav.me/da9fhkv (NSFW)

Niniel: Female Elven, Mage, Solas. Shes dubious and not too trusting, but tries to be fair. Loves her Dalish culture and Magic. Believes in freedom of choice for Mages. Chaos for everyone! x9

Art by me: fav.me/dald27q and fav.me/da8eee0

Maeglin: Male Elven, Mage, Dorian. He's laid back, likes to tease and laugh. Neutral to his Dalish culture. Believes in freedom of choice, provided you're proven you can choose well.

Art by me: fav.me/daldrql and others :D fav.me/dahsego

If you need me to be more descriptive about any of them, just ask!
I can provide physical description if refs aren't enough and rough backstory (before game) if needed too :D

What armors do your characters use? Do you have anything particular in mind? Do you have color schemes for them, perhaps?

yeah! skell and nana have in-game armor, but i typically just draw ayrre in his duds that I made up for him. All three of 'em have duds that I made up for them, which is i guess what they wear at skyhold, but y'know. w/e. out of game duds here. bad ref bc its a doodle, but like. idk its an option? if the artist would rather use them. it's 100% up to the artist on wht they decide, I've no preference: natie15.deviantart.com/art/Wei… (that was before ayrre's tats changed. here's post change: natie15.deviantart.com/art/Dra…

Skell uses the battlemage armor (masterwork i think?) with a white coat and red accents; screenshots here: sta.sh/21rogce8r6t4?edit=1

Nana uses. Prowler armor I think? All blacks and greys; screenshots here: sta.sh/22fwkcghinof?edit=1

and Ayrre's in-game armor is whatever I plop on him, its pretty close to nana's. Currently it's blue/white/green; screenshot here: sta.sh/21loa8616bof?edit=1

and as for color schemes, I have their palettes for like. Skin and hair and such? But it's really up to the artist on if they want it to change or not due to lighting. here's their palettes:
