This is Artemis, *Chuuchichu's beautiful ice bird boy! I had been wanting to spam patterns and details for a while, and found the perfect opportunity. I really wanted to spam 10x more details (jewelry, more patterns, etc etc) but my damaged shoulder can only handle so much.

Commissioned artwork; no critiques please. I don't want the flaws spelled out in front of my client ;~;

I'm happy with:
~the overall values and color scheme. Usually I have to do a lot of color and value/contrast tweaking before I'm even reasonably satisfied. With this picture, there was almost none of that.

I'm okay with:
~all the leeway I gave myself with the lighting. A careful observer will notice quite a few places where the lighting behaves differently than it would IRL. I'm fine with that, as the overall piece feels right to me.

Yes, his hair and wings have a color gradient to them. Aren't they pretty :heart:

Prints MAY be available later.

I absolutely love this- I think it's the wings that I like the most. I don't know if I'm misinterpreting this, but it looks to me as though light from stained-glass windows is shining through the feathers. Even if it isn't... beautiful! :D
