For ~MirroredSky, who wanted her paladin from FFXIV with his boyfriend's FFXI dragoon.
This was her first commission request, as a gift for christmas, and I am so glad they both liked it.
I am sorry MirroredSky, I cannot enable it as deviant print since it's a fanart.
But please feel free to print yourself and enjoy. ^^

Thanks so much.

This is beautiful! Is that a primeval brew?
My favorite part is that you actually got the dragoon armor to look metallic. =) I love the differences between the materials texture and shading!
I am also incredibly fond of the circular background window, makes me want to do something like that myself, it looks very cool!
I'm not sure if you would want any critique because you didn't mention so, but I will try, it's hard on such an amazing piece. =)
I think the paladins hand looks just a little bit odd, like maybe the thumb should be angled more towards the viewer?
The way everything fits so perfectly, with that little circle frame, I really wish we could see the tips of her boots :D I think it would give it an extra balanced look.
:heart: Beautiful!

I am surprised you left another long, thoughtful comment. I cannot explain how much this mean to me. I'm always glad that someone takes time drop a comment, even if it's just a small compliment, it makes me smile. But when I read this comment it really reaches me, I am very thankful that you shared your opinion with me. I appreciate the tips! I didn't thought of adding the tips of her boots, in fact, they were in the linework! I cropped later because I thought there was a ton of empty space. I have a lot to learn about composition and comments like this help a ton. I had no idea leaving the feets on would help to balance! I really thank you for sharing this. I'd be glad to count with your tips and critiques in the future! ^^ I hope you have a great day!

You're very welcome! :aww: I am not a frequent commenter, but I really enjoy being able to help out and give critique from a perspective that someone might not see themselves, it comes more naturally to me than short comments. =)
It's really interesting how things like that sometimes don't even register to the artist, but are noticed right away by others. XD I am certainly no expert on composition but I will always try and help, sometimes it's all in what the artist thinks is right, too. =)

I can't fully express how happy I am with your work, it's just wonderful.  The person it's for loves it just as much and his reaction when he saw it was entirely worth it!

Thank you so much... If you only knew how many times I wish I had spare money to commission you. You did me so many wonderful gifts worth all of my savings, I wish I could support more, but unless I improve and my works are worth a little more price I won't be able to use my earnings on other but bills.
