Orb Maker by Xovq Orb Maker by Xovq
Download for a larger view

I know a lot of you already saw this in my scraps, but I did changed it a little. The biggest change is the way it is cropped. I also added a little bit more inside of him, mostly in the arm.

This is a commissioned piece, despite it being a picture of my own character.

As far as what's going on in the picture, Zharcaor is making an orb. This isn't really how he makes them, but it looks pretty this way. And about his back, he can sort of use his 'hair' to grasp things. If you look closely at the longest one, you'll notice some of his 'bone' forming on the inside to help support it.








Zharcaor is my character.

I choose this one for the feature! :D

I love the colors you chose for that drawing, the blue and white tones create a magical atmosphere, and the creature is very elegant too. I like how you did its "hair", with all these curves, and the light reflecting on it :)

It's almost like a water god from the way the hair looks without the bone stuff in it. I really like this just because of how different it is.

I'm glad he reminds you of water, because he is supposed to be liquidy and fluid.

Zarcoar is a unicorn?

i thought he was a dragon
Reply
:iconxovq:
Xovq Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Neither really. I generally draw him with a unicorn head, but his form is really variable, enough so that I consider him a shape shifter. I did fancy up his head and neck a bit from what it looks like in the reference [link] and the proportions are a little different, but he is mostly the same.

I guess this picture emphasizes the unicorn similarity, because the parts that are not unicorn like go out of the frame.

Very nicely done. I love the lighting - it looks very correct in parallel to the orb. The colors are also amazing. It makes the character almost blend in with the background, but the shininess of the mane(?) make him stand out more.

Excellent piece. :D

Thank you. :) Even though it is supposed to be hiding, featuring it should not be a problem as the person this is for does not browse DA, at least to my knowledge anyway.

Oh you can now. Like I said, this person does not browse DA, or really have any connection to it other than through me. It will be fine if it's in your journal.

Yeah that is part of his arm, and then a part of his leg comes in front of his arm. He's in a crouched position.
