I wanted to draw this couple for a long time, but I'm not sure if I'm satisfied or not.

So they're Lynden, my fav grumpy old guy, and his sweet wife Sortilege (©~Solfatare).
This dear Lynden is an ooooooold fallen angel who is really grumpy and unpleasant, he can't stop nagging and persecute his "best friend" Keane *the only one who don't think he's that bad, but it might be because their master is far worse than Lynd haha* Lynden is the kind of guy who think torture is a good method to save people's soul, especially people who have offended him.
I'm not sure how he ended up married XD

I can scarcely begin to contemplate how one could recreate Sortilege's hairstyle, but a part of me dearly wants to try, as it looks so beautiful and interesting to the eye. :)

XD He sounds like a very interesting character. :D I love the colors in this piece. The deep umber/brown tones in the background contrasting the cooler colors of the characters. :3 Except his tie. Love it! :D

Wow! C'est vraiment impressionnant! La composition et les couleurs donnent un effet grandiose à l'oeuvre. J'aime particulièrement les détails (comme les livres, les cheveux, les motifs de la robe)et les textures.

Mais d'où viennent les personnages? D'un roman? D'un jeu de rôle?

Une bibliothèèèèèèèèèèèque!!!!!!! >o<~:heart:
Quel plaisir de revoir une peinture de toi sur la toile, ça faisait longtemps... =3
J'hallucine toujours sur la façon dont tu arrives à marier les couleurs. J'aime beaucoup la discrétion de l'ajout des textures aussi, elles sont là mais on n'y fait pas vraiment attention... :)

Oui une biblioooooooo XD<3
J'avoue avoir surtout été motivée par l'idée de faire une biblio quand j'ai commencé. Je revenais d'un voyage où j'avais pu voir la même biblio en vrai *et en plus grand, plus beau etc évidemment*, le plus beau souvenir de mon voyage en Irlande *__*

*Bibliomania ON*
Une grande bibliothèque en Irlande? Ouaaa, c'te chance, qu'est-ce que j'aimerai en visiter une aussi! Tu as pris des photos?! Tu te souviens de son nom?
Remarque, ça me rappelle que l'été dernier, je suis rentrée chez un bouquiniste à Caen... Mon dieu, des vieilles étagère, des reliés cuirs qui s'entassaient de partout! Des vieilles cartes, des piles de bouquins partout par terre, tu te faufilais dans une véritable antre de papier, c'était fantastique! *3*

Oh, au fait, je suis désolée, j'avais dit que je viendrais à la chibi japan sud et finalement je ne l'ai pas fait... ;_; Enfin, ce n'était pas une grosse perte pour toi! XD;

Hoho les photos étaient interdites XD c'est la vieille bibliothèque de Trinity college [link] la visite était chère mais aaaarrrgghhhh ne serait-ce que pour l'odeur de vieux livres qui imprégnaient l'air, les vieux manuscrits illustrés anciens, la bibliothèque de mes rêves >__< !!!
Les librairies aussi c'est le bien *__* ce sont des temples du papier et des livres >_<

Pas grave pour JE sud ^^ je me suis dit que tu devais avoir eu un empêchement D: tant que c'est rien de grave hein.

Beautiful composition and use of colors, and the details are just amazing. :love:

The only thing I'm wondering about is how you keep your colors so clean yet so messy at the same time...
(if that makes any sense at all :XD: ; I'm trying to brush up on my traditional media skills since I've using Photoshop a lot recently)

Try to look at the step by step of this illustration?
I wouldn't be able to explain ^__^; Try to add a lot of layers of different colors?
Thanks for your comment anyways =D

Ah... so you worked on the pale warm colors first and then gradually added in the cooler darker colors one at a time (that's what it looked like ^^; ).
It was a good idea to post up a 'step-by-step' - I've always been curious about the different techniques and methods other artists use because I find it amazing how traditional medias can be used in so many ways, and the various effects a person can get just by doing something that's slightly different.

You're very welcome, and keep up with the beautiful work. :D

Actually, I AM interested in knowing how you did this - it looks like watercolor to me but your info says inks.

Maybe in the future could you supply us with one?

This is wicked sweet btw!

:iconbory-einfrost:
Bory-Einfrost Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2010
Well, it's also written "liquid watercolor" on my ink bottles, so I guess it's not that far from being watercolor.

Ah; Just making sure.

Your art has always bemused me because I'm trying to figure out how you do it! It was interesting to see you paint it in layers. If that was me, I woulda been scared to paint the background colors into the people in fear of 'messing' it up. ^^;

Would it be too much to ask for a future tutorial sometime?
That'd be kick ass!
