Here's Orsino and Maidievh Hawke - OC of :iconisteillia: (hope You like it)
You can read about the two of them here: [link]

The title is taken from G. G. Marquez novel…

(Digression: I’ve been rereading his books lately, and by god! this man deserves a statue! I’m in love. Again. Seriously, if I could marry a book I’d marry one of his. “One Hundred Years of Solitude” I think… though I’m afraid I would be cheating on it with “Lolita” and the Bible. End of digression.)

…and that's all.

Cheers!

Orsino (c) Bioware
Mai (c) Isteillia

Ah, jak cudownie dramatycznie! :faint: I ile tu emocji!

No i ORSINO, oczywiście. :heart:

Z czystym sumieniem moge powiedzieć, że z całej góry fanartów jakie dotąd widziałam, Twój Orsino jest najlepszy. :nod:

Dziękuje Ci dobra kobieto :D

(chciałam trochę bardziej dramatycznie, ale jakoś mi to do tego całego przytulanka nie pasowało... przy następnej okazji, bo mi te czerwone flagi pootwierały nowe skojarzenia... O_o)

Ależ cała przyjemność po mojej, jak zawsze. :nod:

No i teraz to mnie zaciekawiłaś z tymi skojarzeniami! :D Tak wiem, curiosity killed the cat. Więc się lepiej zamknę. :giggle:

A spoko, spoko, nie zamykaj się :] Jak się przegrzebywałam przez jakieś obrazki z tej gry, to zauważyłam w scenografii (nie wiem jakim cudem nie zwróciłam na to uwagi w trakcie grania... ale może dlatego, że ja to też tak gram, że śmiech na sali...) całą masę odniesień do estetyki Trzeciej Rzeszy. Jakieś takie mrokness darkness mnie od razu dopadło i znając siebie zaraz sobie stworzę we łbie własną wersję Kikrwall i będę musiała ją jakoś wypluć na papier (tfu, tablet)... O_o

Ooooooooooooo! No, to mi się podoba!

Jakoś tak mam wizję Arishoka jako fuhrera trzymającego całe to miasto w swojej szponiastej garści...

...o rany, wyobraźnia mnie poniosła. ;) Jak zwykle. :lol:

:faint: Chyba czytasz mi w myślach... Wiedźma jaka czy cuś? :faint:

Właśnie o czymś podobnym myślałam. Tzn Arishok (bo od jakiegoś czasu mam ogromną ochotę go narysować tylko nie mogłam sobie znaleźć pomysłu) + ta estetyka...

What a wonderfully strong image. I'm sure it was on purpose, but the similarities to revolutionary propaganda colour choices is fantastic!

Thank You :D
Colours are actually an effect of reading about this propaganda poster contest on one of DA related groups :giggle: So yeah, it was on purpose. I wanted to go further with that aesthetic but I figured I'll leave it for some other picture.

.....I...Holy GODS this is so freaking perfect, you have NO IDEA. I kind of stared at the screen, completely blanking out. This is just....Yinepu's scales, this is so utterly gorgeous. I love the flashes of red on the greytones, and their expressions and gestures are so emotive!

:swoon: I am in LOVE. Thank you SO MUCH!

Oh, good :)

I was a little worried that I kind of lost the original idea on the way...

Glad You like it :)

Oh NO. This is better than the idea I had in my head. I love the red between them, and how they're standing between two Kirkwall flags, and the way she has her wings around him. It's VERY symbolic, and I am FLOORED by it. I LOVE it. <333333

(Your piece is coming along well- Just hit a roadbump trying to figure out Meredith and Orsino's ages ><;)

After all the research I've done, I'm assuming Orsino is 58-60 (since elves age slower than humans) and Meredith is somewhere between 35-40, seeing as she was assumed to be young when she joined the templars (and the average going age for joining the Order is 15-18), and she looks about that age, too- still has blonde hair and minimal aging on her face- around the eyes and mouth, which is where it starts.

I'm going an interesting route with this piece, so I want it to be accurate XD

3 night shifts in a row, plus a day earlier in the week. I took tonight off to sleep and instead I'm up at almost 5 a.m. lol.

:glomp:

Just as long as it's a short break!

Kinda wanna see more Amber/Orsino... uhhh yeah... :D

Get some sleep, woman!
(look who's talking :faint: I've spend last three days working till dusk and painting fanarts till dawn and now I look like a panda bear :faint: sleeping is for wimps)

No, seriously, take some rest :glomp:

I think I'm done with the game canon, so I think I can paint Amber when I'll be ready for another romantic Orsino pic :) I need a break 'cause on the last two drawings he looks almost like my godfather and that scares me a little O_o I need to clear my mind and take some new look on this character.
