The preview looks really crappy. I guess that the contrasts in this image is too subtle. Anyway, this has been lying around my drive for far too long. It's an experiment with watercolour-pencils. We are not exactly friends, but not too shabby.

The thumbnail picture really doesn't do justice to this work of yours: when I looked at that smaller preview pic I got a very "distorted" impression compared to seeing the full-sized version. Good to see that for once Fenris doesn't look his broody self and rather seems to be happy and on the verge of smiling! :thumbsup:

I know, It happens to some images. I hate it. It's not bad at all, just looks bad. I was very fond of that smile myself! :D

somehow in the roughness of the sketch there's something so emotional...

I kept this one because of the smile, it's very soft, and reluctant.

Me like! I always enjoy this style of picture of yours, sketchy and flowy (yes, flowy is not a word but who cares). The best part is his expression; a kind of reluctant smile, like something he can't resist and later will be cross about because broody elves don't smile, dammit!

Ha ha, right you are. He will probably headbutt a wall afterwards! I don't know, but my trick is to look at the image for a time, plan,  and then draw very fast, without really thinking.

Well, it worked! I do a lot of planning, stare at the wall, then work very slowly.

Fenris will never forgive himself for that un-broody slip up.

LOL, probably not. He needs to chill... :D

He can chill with me anytime... :P

That's stunning, love the warmth of it as well as the frosty highlights. The colorscape really is uniquely beautiful. Gives the lines so much life!

I was a bit miffed at the preview, but I can't change the image for that... Colours and shapes are very important to me, one reason I love your textures! :D

Sometimes the preview just doesn't live up to the actual artwork. I think you and me are not the only ones with that problem :D

See Fenris, you do know how to smile! We just have to try really hard hahaha xD
Ah I love that brooding elf :D

VERY hard! I like him a lot. Fenris and the Arishok had the most interesting aesthetics in DA2. :D
