Artwork Description

A portrait of a character, Geran, from a bit of fiction I'm working on. I was trying to do it as if it were an old painting from the medieval times, with bright golds and vibrant colors emerging from a dark canvas.

I looked at your work and thought..lestat!

Now, I think my first excliamation is sufficant. Yet, I can not bring myself to leave with out telling you exactly what I apprecate in your work.

I am amazed about the amount of life, if that is what one would call it, this picture has. The hair is great and the facial expression is ...real. Chibi Chirik did a great job of describing it. The cloths bring you back to the past..and the face makes you want to stay there.

Oh my... this is absolutely breathtaking! I love it! There are definitely not enough wonderful paintings like this of beautiful guys around -_^ His clothes are sooo detailed and lovely, and his face and hair are just amazing. Wonderful, wonderful work.

This is amazing! His hair down to the very little details caught my eye. ^.^

he's so positively davidbowie-like. the rich texture and colour and hair, and how the ruffles of lacey stuff at the collar almost look like lightningbolts. it's just gorgeous.

Everything about it has already been said, the magnificent textures, colors, beauty. It leaves one in awe. I love the character of Geran in your story too, this is so him. I can see why Marcus was so infatuated with him in the beginning.

A really nice atmosphere it has. Smile For some reason it reminds me a bit of this beauty and the beast scene where you see the portrait of beast how he used to look before he destroys it. (yep i use to collect disneyfilms why do you ask? ;P)

This is very beautiful, I find great satisfaction in this piece you have created. Why don't you create a wife for him and a son too all in portraits as well... Please make it like a royal family kind of thing

Thank you. I would actually like to combine a line and digital style-- I've attempted it, but I have to admit I'm not very good at it! I'll keep working at it though. Thank you so much for your feedback.

*laughs* Geran is very flattered!

Both you digital and ink works are wonderful. Perhaps you can develop a style that combines both-- the cleanness of ink and the color rendering of digital work.

Thanks Chibi Chirik!
I am really attached to faces and how they tell stories about people! I think that was one of my first difficulties with getting into anime, as to me the faces appeared all the same. As I saw more I saw that this didn't have to be true! I still enjoy working on faces and portraiture and reflecting written personalities into faces.

First thing I noticed was his face. Can't really explain why, but I just love how his hair seems to be somewhat shadowing the left side of his face. I love his hair. I love his eyebrows and his lips, they don't seem like the kind of features that are just frozen in one expression forever--it's a picture I can look at in one way and think there's a dark smile there, or looking at it another way, I'd see traces of bitterness. You know how when you look at people's faces closely for a long time while talking to them, and you just realize it seems like their faces change as you stare? That's how Geran here affects me. I love the whole portrait, it's really beautiful. ~Chibi Chirik

It came out nice.. I love the textures in it, the brocade in the red fabric, the chain mail. Nice dark gothic feel. ^_^
