Egil by xiaomeimei Egil by xiaomeimei
this is Egil(he's Norwegian) i wanted to paint him as something metal, but then i looked at his iconsc0pe and got inspired by it. bling!

im trying out some kind of textures in the bg. some brushes by ~asunder

ok not that you care but this is my favourite part of a Dimmu Borgir song i was listening to while painting(no prize for guessing the correct song name tho!! :P):

Anticipation mender through madness

Condemned to the same horrid fate

Insanity applauds

How sharp the awakening

Pale as disease

Mocking…Maddening…

Give up the ghost

Cease the gloomy awakening

The bird's anatomy looks kinda funky, and there's something off about his hands too. And I think his arms are too short. Other than that it looks pretty good!

looks to me like the perfect vampire actually it's very close to my idea for Vlad from Pratchett's "Cappe Jugulum":))

compliments sweet Kay ! such a nice (& someway romantic ;) ) idea to make this portrait !!! :) Egil must be so proud !!! He looks really good ! with those 'kay-style-eyes' !!!
I agree a bit with the other's comments on the raven, I would have loved to see some of his forms come more 'out' maybe only through a slightly different hue in the lightning? and also about the hand, but really the general impression is superbly dark !
:clap:
I'm your fan ! :D

OMG! I love this piece. I love all your artwork but this one catches my eyes, the bird, it's all very Crow-ish. I have an obsession with the Crow and crows and ravens in general. Anyway, you are an amazing artist!

You've got a great gotchic feel in your works, which I personally like. Hmm.. this reminds me of Poe's The Raven. =) Nice blending of colors and good moody setting.

You have unbelievable stats on this picture: 1,155V, 1,808D, 83F, 176C. What more is there to say? I like the air of 19th century nobility this picture conveys. Very classy. You managed to make him look arrogant, yet defiant, deeply passionate and intelligent. This would be a perfect illustration for any gothic novel. It's an honour to be drawn by you - you take reality and with your brush you twist it and make it "kay".
