This is my favorite artwork of Gavin I have seen... While I pictured him just a little more tan, I honestly just don't care cause he is so stunning... Lucky Karris!

Not bad, although isn't Gavin darker?

All that Skulling and having Parian blood in him?

I think he should be tanned, not pale skinned

So hätte ich mir Gavin nicht vorgestellt aber wie immer tolle Arbeit! :-)

Pretty good! i too would had the hairtone made a bit more into a red for the copper. But it's absolutley stunning! Maybe you could also draw Teia and Karris :D Or a even Karris with Gavin (the broken Eye Gaving ;)) and Kip with Teia.

This is absolutely stunning! The only thing I'd complain about is that his hair should be more coppery (it was described as being copper colored in the book due to his Blood Forester heritage) but it looks amazing otherwise! I think he looks great as a blond and you captured his eyes perfectly!

Thank you so much for making this! There isn't nearly enough art for this series.

Also I believe his skin is darker, Ironfist noted that Gavin is part Parian, and his skin was darkened by years of Skulling around the world

In addition, Zymun and Andross noted that Gavin is not light-skinned (although Kip is darker)

Great interpretation! Love kip too, I imagined him with darker skin though to hide that drafting abilities :) I did some interpretations as well, if you can have a look and give your opinion would be awesome [ mariofernandes.deviantart.com/… ]

Oh my god YES! It's beautiful. That little Guile smirk. . . I'm in love!

OMG I love it, your interpretation of Gavin is great, I love how intense his eyes are, you certainly captured the sharpness of the character. Really love the contrast of the colors with the shadows, sort of encompasses all his awesomeness and hints at his darker secrets at the same time.

Awesome painting, but wouldn't both Gavin and Kip have darker skin? As described in the book the Guile family is a medium brown, helps hide the drafting.

Thank you!
I actually don't quite remember all the details. I searched the internet for some information about the details of their looks, but couldn't find anything, so I just went with what I remembered.
But now you mentioned it, I think you're right.
