Finally, it's finished! Introducing my Gerald Hawke and Merrill! Sorry for the messiness towards the end; I was rushing to finish it before this weekend.

1. I had forgotten I had given Gerald a tattoo, despite swearing never again to give any of my PCs tattoos. Thankfully, I didn't choose a very complicated one.
2. Despite Merrill's stubbornness about her mirror, Gerald thinks she's intelligent and sweet and likes to listen to her talk, especially since he hates talking. Merrill is happy that someone believes in her, and she also gets to see Gerald's squishy soft side that he only shows his family.
3. Yes, they argue about this a lot.
4. They sing Karaoke! Billy Joel forevah!
5. Since Merill gets a new outfit when she's romanced, I figured Gerald likes to shop too.
6. Yes, Gerald was so not listening to what Merrill was saying when they met because he was entranced by her beauty and cuteness. Which meant he was surprised to discover she used blood magic. Bethany is amused to see her brother like this.
7. Poor Gerald. Having to dress in your sister's clothes is the worst! XD
8. :love:
9. Gerald's a rogue, but still has more strength than a mage. And, being a man, likes to show it off.
10. What it says.
11. I imagine Gerald would win because he likes to, and Isabela would put a stop to this. ;)
12. I tag :iconsoniacarreras: Deirdre Hawke and Badass Viscount Dumar McClane(because I'm really curious to see what happens between them!) and :iconden-chan:'s Belladonna Hawke and Anders because I CAN! And anyone else who wants to do this meme, do it! It's loads of fun and you get to draw romance. ROMANCE! :love: :love: :love:

Thank you! Isabela is wonderful to draw; I always have loads of fun doing her. :)

I'd love to see more of her! ;)

Actually... I'm really curious about how you can handle Velan as well :)

Unfortunately I don't have time for non-paid commissions at the moment, but maybe at a later date. :) Velan would also be fun to draw! :D
NIELSPETERDEJONG's avatar
You do commissions nowadays? How is that working out? :)

Poorly, lol. XD I need to get a better variety of styles and prices for commission work as well, so a lot of that is my fault. ;) But I'm working on it! :D

And commissions aren't my bread and butter, just extra, so I don't mind so much if I'm not doing well with them.

#6 is also how my Ezra Hawke fell for Merrill. He was blinded by her cuteness. ^^;

D'aww you draw Merrill so adorable!

#3, #7, and #11 made me laugh and #5 is just cute (I guess Isabela must have shown Merrill and Gerald that hat shop in Lowtown she's always talking about).

I know! She's supposed to be more sad, but I figure she's happier when with her lover. :)

And Isabela's always good for shopping tips! :D

Ha! I still like to think that Isabela's responsible for getting Merrill that red and black corset she wears in the scene after she and Hawke "spend the night" (well outside the metagame explanation that the devs just used the same half-naked elf lady model for half-naked Merrill :lmao:)

Oh I hated that corset! I thought elves should get better lingerie. It just looked... awful. Not pretty at all. I thought Hawke ought to buy her a new, better one! :XD:

Curse Merril for being so cute, even for a ditz! XD

Oh! What do you think of the new DLC btw? Legacy cam out yesterday =D.

I know, I know!

I haven't played it yet... too busy with work. I'll probably play it in late August, when I have time. XD Have you enjoyed it? (no spoilers please! :))
SkylertTH's avatar
Oh I did enjoy it, I won't give any spoilers, but let's just say that for mages, it gives a pretty damn good weapon. xD

I'm tempted to do a Marian and Fenris story based off Legacy afterwords, but that'd be spoilers all around. :P

Yea for more cool mage weapons!

oh, go ahead and write it! :D I can read it once I finish playing... in a month. :)
