Jan 2012 comments Ugh, this picture really bugs me now (all us artists have to start from somewhere I guess). So many things look awful and I hate the background... but people still seem to like it so I guess it will stay in my gallery for now. ^^;
---

This is Drizzt Do'Urden from the books by R.A. Salvatore. He is outlined in pen and colored using Adobe Photoshop.

In all the years of being obsessed with Drizzt I have never seen a picture of him covered in his purple fire, so I decided to have some in the picture. :D

I must also mention that the pose reference came from a Prince of Persia wallpaper.

Thanks! :D

This is still one of my favorite pics of Drizzt, it always has been since I first saw it. Would you mind if I did a 3D pic of him with this same pose? I can link back to this as the original/ give credit, of course! :)

Sure! :D
I appreciate the complements too. This is such an old drawing now though... that I've almost been tempted to try repainting it. But I'm happy to hear that people still like it. ^^

This pic is fantastic.  Literally according to all the comments.  It's sexy without being raunchy, it's different because it's not done portrait style, and most of all it's just well done.  Nothing to complain about here, you did the dark elf justice and I think all the artists involved should be more proud of this piece.

i say the background was from Prince of Persia too from the looks of it. but if so that's ok! Drizzt pulls it off better than the prince himself!

Because it's a fan art and you're not supposed to sell fanart prints through DA. ^^;

I'm glad you like it though. :)

....They sell Pokemon, Doctor Who and Star Wars Prints....and you can't put this up. In fact, I've bought a Drizzt print before.
