Hunting by artsangel Hunting by artsangel
I'm going crazy not being able to show any of my current artwork to you guys (NDAs and commercial projects, boo!) but I had a few spare hours this evening and decided to do a quickie.

Also, I have never painted Acheron before! Bad me! He's my only major character never to have had a real painting. Fixed :D

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-10-15
Hunting by artsangel is a fun and fantastical piece that brings us right into what seems like a dreamy sherwood forest! This character beckons us forward and to join in the extraordinary action. Beautiful use of colors and the pallet created from the shafts of light is just dreamy. ( Suggested by TheMoonlitPrince and Featured by KovoWolf )

Awesome artwork! :)

Inverloch was one of the first webcomics I read only about two years ago, when I was starting to get more interested in the webcomics medium (and just recieved a tablet back then). Your comic had me realize the quality and potential in both art and storytelling for webcomics; that a comic doesn't always have to be published by a publisher for it to be of high quality.
Inverloch will always be one of my top favorite comics. The characters, the settings, and the animated feel of the comic instantly drew me in. I couldn't put it down (I just got a tablet back then - I find it better/easier to view webcomics on a tablet instead of a computer).
I only started making a presence on the Internet a few months ago and I hope that my comic projects will be just as interesting - and inspiring - to others as what your comic has been to me.

Keep it up with the amazing artwork! :)

I love this painting. It is similar to how you are doing Finding Gossamyr.
arachnophile Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012
Acheron!!! That was him. I forgot his name. I am sorry I just really loved the first story I stumbled upon with him. :) I keep checking that website just in case. :D

Yeah I did read the Phoenix story too. I Just always hope for more stuff from you. :D You have an amazing gift. If you have moved on and are getting paid for that gift then, just let us know and/or cut us off. ;) We may need the tough break-up. ;-p

Prf-Jennings Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2012
I am amazed at how you define this as a "quickie." on that note, Acheron! It's good to see him again.
MtangaLion Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2012
Wonderful... the colors are so vivid.

I'd love to see more of the da'kor. I'd say do something new, a sequel or a different story in the same world.
KatChan00 Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
I can't lie. I was squealing when I saw this.

I will always love Inverloch and have very fond memories of waiting desperately for each new page. :D I never joined the forums, but was watching since day one because I'd had your art porfolio website bookmarked as a favourite previously.

I adore the colors and lighting and the depth that the image has, and that expression is just to die for.
kinachuku Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I've read Inverloch again today. And I must say it's the best webcomic I know! Also, I really like this drawing! :)
Stuartwebster Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

This is a real walk down memory lane. Acheron!

Very well done! I like his expression... Smug canine...
sythiar Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Alright. A pic of Acheron. Oh, how I love this character!
It's amazing how your art style has developed over the years. It's so much different from what you did when you were still drawing Inverloch!

-faves- Yay!
Diretooth Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012
Man, I just re-read Inverloch. Man, I really loved the ending. Can you pretty please make another story featuring the Da'Kor?
FrozenTempest Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I don't know why but this archeron seems a bit sinister...

Is this before the exchange?
JBellio Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
that lighting, and those colors are goooorgeous! :D love all those little saturation boosts :D

Oooh it's the sneakier side of sweet Acheron! Very beautifully done, as usual :aww:

cute! :D
geckobird Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah! I should reread Inverloch!

Though, seeing him now after reading the ending, has made me wonder who is my real favorite character? Talk about a mind-blowing ending to a great comic!

Do you have another project in the works? I'm deliriously waiting in hopes you do!
