Artwork Description

This image is also based on Raistlin from the Dragonlance, but I changed some details. Perhaps I used too much black color here. It's on a brown paper btw...

2005: Recolored Picture

Holy cow, this is freakingly amazing. Great job indeed.
BTW, Raistlin was the first thing I thought of when seeing this image - Before reading your description Smile. Anyway, it looks really great.

Ha, thank you very much! Smile
I wish I had the time to upload more pictures like this. Actually I don't, because I'm working on two different game projects, designing all the stuff. This usually does not give me much free time, and if it does ...I don't want spend it into drawing, you know ...but I hope I will be able to upload some new pics in the further months.

I wondered if you could tell me what type or if possible even what brand you use, as I am entering art school and still exploring various mediums. Thank you for this beautiful picture.

Just incredible stuff Daniel! The amount of detail in your colored pencil-works never seizes to amaze me.

Thank you very much Patrick! To hear that from an artist like you means a lot to me. Your favorite medium is oil, isn't it? Your pics are amazing!! Specially "Windmill" (going crazy!). This would not be possible with colored pencils...at least not for me Smile In fact, there are not too many artists I really admire, but you are definitely one of them!

Thanks! It took a lot of patience (what I usually don't have)

Great costume! I love colored pencils myself, so it's always nice to see them used so effectively.

Thank you, Sera. First it was a woman, btw, but after finishing the face, it had just lost his female touch, so I changed some details (first there was a female leg coming out of the robes - wouldn't make sence now *g*) and so it was getting a male black mage...
