Ode To Cadwell (color curve) by CSphire Ode To Cadwell (color curve) by CSphire
Took up some advise from :iconclandestine-assassin: and must say this pops now! :)

I adore John Cleese and so I find Cadwell equally adorable. ^.^  www.uesp.net/wiki/Online:Cadwe…

here it is a wip csphire.deviantart.com/art/Cad…

When he's in cold harbor he always reminds me of The Old Guitarist an oil painting by Pablo Picasso.  Caddy gives me so many feels I'll probably draw him again once I get a few other projects out of the way. ;)

Awww finally some Cadwell Fanart. He is my favorite character in ESO - especially later on in the Main Story and after that!

I first believed him to be Sheogorath, mucking around in Molag's place :D

He totally needs love too.  I really want to draw him again facing the viewer with that wide eyed smile he gets.

He's a hoot. But he really doesn't come off as crazy as Sheograth. Well so far.

Oh, this is wonderful! I remember meeting him for the very first time in the beta and thinking, "Yes. Yes, you shall be welcomed in the fandom, Cadwell~"

Really great job, I love how vivid the colors are and how the background captures Coldharbour so well while he still has his merry, selectively-aware expression and pose~

I kept making new charcters in the Beta and so natually I kept running into him. Most of the time I would hang out with him at the fire and playing a flute. Jammed with him. :D

Snapped a few photos and caught him in this pose. I thought, "Awww look at him jamming away so happy. I want to draw that."

The lighting on this piece is very nicely done. It does indeed pop.

I'm still learning how to use colors.  Whenever I use them the piece ends up a little flat looking.  -.-  But thank you!  I like to think he looks as if he's near the fire now.

Colors can be hard. Do you do a greyscale underpainting? That can sometimes help your colors stay bright. I also like to use colors to help shade (such as a orange tint to shade a blue color) but also allow the colors to stay vibrant.

Keep experimenting and you'll continue to improve but I think this looks really lovely so far. :)

Adding warm colors to the highlights can help him appear closer to the fire, just for an added idea for another time. :D
