Night Blooming WIP

By AngelaSasser
EDIT: Now with colored line art! This is going to be a mixed media image in watercolor and color pencil. I think I've settled on the name Arden suggested by ~RenaDementia. It seems very fitting:)

To be moved to Scraps shortly. Here's my latest work-in-progress for a painting I'm working on currently.

An angel hunts his demon prey through the ruins of a deserted temple. I meant for him to appear somewhat like Melakim without exactly being the same character. He has therefore been dubbed "Fake-a-kim" until he has a proper name.

Want to help me name him? Give it a shot in the comments:D

XD Fake-a-kim.

How about Liaomeka? A mixture of Chinese & Swahili that roughly translates "red hunter".

I'm excited to see the finished version. It's looking cool so far!

Hmm I thought of the name Denadrin when I read your comment, don't know why. I never used that name for any characters or anything. Just seemed to fit in my mind, lol.

wow spooky, I have an old char named Arden xD
good name though, Ardens means passionate in Latin I believe, I'll have to look that up.

While we're picking nits... his index finger on his left hand lines up with the edge of his other arm. You might raise his finger a touch to get rid of that tangent. OK... I'm done;-)

Aaand tweaked! Just reuploaded with some changes you suggested. Now for the fun part:D

No prob Rick! It's good to know these things before I go into the rather permanent phase of things.

Looks good so far... might check the kerchief that goes across his nose; the apex of the bump in the kerchief is not in line with the center of the bridge of his nose.

Ah I see that! I shall give it a tweak before I paint. Thanks:)

*gasp!* Awesome!! The pose is perfect!

Arden...even though it's the name my cousin gave her daughter..I think it's a nice unisex name. :)

Ohh I do love that name:) I think it's very fitting!
