That's great artwork. My bf told me about the books, I would probably be interested in them. :D

The intricate designs on the sword just blow me away. Even at full view I want to zoom in closer. Magnificent.

Incredible. I read all the novels of R.A. Salvatore about this character, and your versions of the drow are the most alike to the drizzt of my mind, with a hard and compasive expression on the face. Perfect work!

Thanks a lot ;)

Beautiful! While i would've like to have seen more "darkness" on the skin, this is still a beautiful work of art...Good job!
MelyCat Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2007
wonderful, I especially love the intensity, not only in his expression but in the eyes as well.

You have an incredible talent, particularly with detail. :) I can learn much, I believe, just from looking at your pics. I think I will watch you, I really enjoy your creations!

CSKazaam Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2007
Wow... all your Drizzt pictures are amazing! I particularly like this one because of the intricate detail in the sword. The eye is wonderful, too!

I've just starting reading about Drizzt, and I love the character! I'm definitely looking forward to more art from you. :)

gatr1993 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2007
yay drizzt XD he looks like he is gonna kill sumthing yay good work XP
aalynia Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2007
This image makes me think of "The Halfling's Gem" in the Icewind Dale trilogy when Drizzt puts the mask on to make him look like a surface elf. I LOVE Drizzt and I never thought I'd see a realistic interpretation of him. This is wonderful-and the sword? Wow, just wow. Keep up the great work!

Great job :clap:
You've been featured in my journal :D ;-)
Ilacha Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
I know this one is not perfect,to finished this pic I take a few days.
The problem with the colors or colorfast like the skin (I know it is to light ),are problems with my Monitor.It cant show me the right colorfast,i try to calibrate it with tools (like Spyder) but the Monitor show me the pics too dark.This pic is much darker at my Monitor,and so you see it too lighten... :(
I have always to adjust the pics after I finished them
But I´m glad to see how many people like this Illustration.
Terralynde Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Very well done. It's one of the few portraits of Drizzt that has actually portrayed him the way I've always thought he should look. It's very believable in it's entirety from the warm and cool lighting to the details on the sword. On the covers of many of the original D&D books, I never liked the way to drow seemed to be.. far from real-looking. But the way you have Drizzt here makes his existence seem possible. :]

Instant favorite.
Nether83 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2007
A surprisingly believeable portrait of Drizzt. Most of what I've seen have been crap.
Oh, and the sword looks fantastic.

These two facts have earned this a :+fav:

ps. I think his skin should be darker.
DaddyForever Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2007
This is outstanding. Drizzt is an extremely difficult character to capture, and frankly just about all the attempts I have seen have fallen short. This is a shining exception. The shape of the face, the apparent age, the hair, the eyes, the swords, he expression. Just outstanding. Thanks.
Timinus Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2007
Wonderful, Great work

The details on the sword are very nice. :)
turbosuo Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2007
Damn that's good! I've been wanting an Icewind Dale movie to come out, but I've been pretty sceptical about how the drow, especially Drizzt would look. You just proved that it is possible to make a drow look not only possible, but completely natural. If you've ever seen what happens when fans try to do cos play you see why this is such an accomplishment. You and Todd Lockwood are the only artists I've ever seen who can pull it off.
CosmicAwesome Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
is there really a movie coming out!!
turbosuo Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2009
Not that I know of. What I was saying is that most, if not all drow illustrations have the drow looking very awkward. There is this problem with having the dark skin and stark white hair that makes the characters look unnatural. Like I said, look up drow cosplay and you can see how difficult it is to get a drow to look natural. Ilacha's picture here proves that the CAN be made to look natural(meaning believable) without completely sacrificing the dark skin and white hair. I some what wish there was an Icewind Dale movie, but unless a good director, one who has a passion for the novels, gets the job it will probably suck. Like the Dungeons and Dragons movie from a few years back.
CosmicAwesome Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
Thats a very astute observation. i alwasys thought R.A. Salvatores open endedness would be a deterrent. D&D did suck. HARD!
Cali2007 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
I have to agree with you about him really bringing the character to life, until now I've only seen ones that are good CG's, looking not so real but good enough to pass off. But I totally agree with you about how Ilacha makes him look like he can be a really person and not look fake.
