Commission Portraits -Set 5 by Saimain Commission Portraits -Set 5 by Saimain
The final set of grayscale commission portraits I'll be doing this year. Drawn/shaded in the semi-realism style of "Secrets" and "Semiyar" and all my other batches of grayscale portraits. Drawn with an 0.5 mechanical pencil and shaded in Photoshop 5.5.

First up are Cael and Adara, belonging to !Gnarly-Juuku; second are "Brynna and Althamal, belonging to *Siriusstar76; and last are Chrys and little Brynna, also belonging to *Siriusstar76. All characters their creators. ^__^

You can find larger versions of the individual portraits on my website: [link]

Other commission portraits I've done in similar style can be found here:

I'm just curious, did you use a stock reference for this? I ask simply because I am absolutely :heart:IN LOVE:heart: with the poses, and I wanted to draw a picture with the same pose. However, I didn't want to "steal" the pose that you obviously spent a lot of time and hard work putting together. Unless...would you mind if I used the same pose for a picture I am planning on making? I just wanted to make sure that'd be alright, or if you did use stock, if you remember where you got it from so I could reference it as well? I just came across this and thought it was perfect for the piece I was planning on doing. Again, thank you, and, though it clearly goes without saying, that you make incredibly beautiful artwork. :nod:

No, I did not use stock for this, and I can't give permission for you to duplicate the pose, either, as this was a paid commission for a client. ^__^; I'm sorry, but thank you for asking!

So realistic! The expressions are very well done, I also love the roles here. The young protecting the older whose cracked under the pressure of the world they see.

This is very beautiful. I'd have to admit, the color in the eyes bothers me - I personally think it would look better in grayscale as well. but that's just my taste ^^;

You're so amazing with rendering skin and clothing folds believably! It's very realistic, but then there's that glow you always somehow achieve in your portraiture that gives it this magical quality. I wish I knew how you did this! But then it wouldn't be so mysterious, I suppose. :P
