And of course this series would not be complete without everyone's favorite sassy mage... The one and only Dorian Pavus and his facial hair :XD:

I absolutely love Dorian. He is so fricken funny and sassy. Especially when poking fun at his own heritage.

Out of all the illustrations of Dorian Pavus I have seen this is one of my absolute favorites, if not my most favorite. It is beautiful and you have so wonderfully captured his smile. Excellent :)

First I also liked it, but then I realized that he was flirting with my main character! Holy shit!!!
Do I look gay or what? I am the Inquisitor, the Nerevarine of Morrowind, etc. pp.

Dorian flirts with any person that happens to walk by... I think that's just how he is xD He even flirted with my female Quizzy (And boy, did I flirt back :D )

I love this so much :) Dorian is my favourite character, so it's really lovely to see art / comics / fanfiction with him in it.

I like that lopsided smile most of all darn it. It's so perfect.

Just a question - what colour did you use for his eyes?? I never can tell if it is grey or green or what.

:iconanathematixs:
Anathematixs Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you so much! He is such a great character!!! :D
I used a grey base for his eyes, which I do believe his actual character model has. The only iffy thing about grey (or grey/blue) eyes is that they tend to reflect the surrounding color, so they will look more blue/green/grey(and sometimes in extreme cases even almost hazel) depending on the scene. I think that is what makes his eye color so confusing and hard to pinpoint.
That was my logic behind it, anyway xD

NessaT83 Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2015
Yes! It drives me INSANE because I never could tell what colour they were. Thought it was hazel at one point too. :)

Thanks so much for clearing it up! I thought you got the eye colour spot on. Grey it is then! *goes off to write smutty fanfic about Dorian's grey eyes*

You understood me wrong. You didn`t drew this art. I saw original Dorian`s screenshot in internet: the art and screenshot were absolutely identical. Don't deceive yourself better :/

Oh no, I understood you just fine. I know what you were trying to accuse me of.
But I know and have proven, through live streams, Google Hangouts, steps, close ups and YouTube videos that I am that good. Nobody is being deceived here.
So I felt no need to defend myself against your accusations.

Easy answer: I am just posting a side by side of my main reference and the painting. That should settle it. I think it is the exact same one you were referencing in your comment.

And a link to the screenshot, just so no one doubts I posted an unaltered screenshot: images.bit-tech.net/content_im…

Anathematixs Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, very shiny, but the thought behind that was that he, being as vain as he is, would not go a moment without a properly moisturized face. Using only the finest of Tevinter luxury items, of course

Also I've wanted to ask...what sorts of brushes did you use to create this? The regular hard round brushes? I have such a hard time painting D:
Reply
:iconanathematixs:
Anathematixs Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
This was painted using the default "36" chalk brush with "Opacity" and "Flow" set to pen pressure. I used "Gaussian Blur" on the background to get the out of focus look.

He was bugged in my first playthrough, so I just found him annoying xD Well, not his character, but the fact that I could never talk to him without my game freezing. Second time around I actually got to talk to him and I have to agree that he was absolutely amazing!

It is! I have heard too many female players who wanted to romance him, and too many male ones who were totally disappointed in their options XD
