Commission - Nala15 by NostalgicChills Commission - Nala15 by NostalgicChills
A commission I did for my friend :iconnala15: who wanted a digital painting of her characters Khalfani and Reheema facing off after Reheema was caught stealing food, an event mentioned (but not seen) in her comic 'Betrothed':…

Thanks for the commission, Nala! :heart:

This is amazing, NC! :omg: Thank you so much for this beautiful piece! :hug:
You're so good at conveying emotion and story in your art, which is why I knew you were the right artist for the job. ;)
Khalfani looks like he wants to smack Rehema upside the head from the desert back to the jungle - but he also looks like he's not feeling great with those dark bags and wrinkles under his eyes (and the sunken cheeks). And Rehema looks dejected and confused. Why is his uncle rejecting him for something he had no part in (the feud Khalfani has with his sister and her choices), and yes he shouldn't be stealing food, but he IS desperate. Why can't Khalfani see that? Should Rehema walk away or try to explain himself?

Overall, this piece is exactly what I was hoping for and you pulled off everything beautifully! Right down to the BG and lighting. (I love that Khalfani is in the darker duller light and Rehema is in the brighter/vibrant lighting, further contrasting them.)

No worries! Love the comment! I had a lot of fun working on this, both were really fun to draw :heart:

I have the bonus sketch drawn up, now my scanner has stopped being a turd! I'll note you ;)

Yay! :D I've always been proud of their designs, so thank you! And a great commission experience is deserving of an appreciative, detailed comment in my book. ;P

I saw (as you probably read) thank YOU! I'm so excited!!! :la:

Ah this is beautiful! Love how expressive they all look. 
Not to rush you or anything, but how soon should I expect to get your commission for me? Thanks! ;) (Wink)

Thank you! 
Yes, I didn't forget about your commission! I'm sorry for not updating you on the situation, I've sketched your picture already, but we recently got a new wi-fi modem that's screwing up my scanner. I should have that fixed very soon and I'll let you know ASAP

Okay thank you! Take all the time you need. I was just wondering! :D (Big Grin)

Oh my..... Khalfani looks so different with that infuriated look on his face! O.O

Khalfani: "So you're the one who's been breaking into my secret stash of exotic-flavored M&Ms!"

Reheema: "You have a secret stash of M&Ms?"

Khalfani (realizes he's made a major blunder): "Uh... no, I don't. I definitely don't have a whole barrel of mint chocolate ones coated in pickle and vinegar."

Reheema (retching): "Thanks, dude. You just killed my appetite."

Khalfani: "Whatever. I need to check my 200 barrels of Robitussin and Exlax Delight."

Reheema: 0_0

I can definitely see the emotion taking place in this. It's got a lot going on in one pic.
