Commission Portraits -Set 6 by Saimain Commission Portraits -Set 6 by Saimain
A set of three mixed-media grayscale portraits commissioned for "The World of Gwaelimir." Drawn with an 0.5 mechanical pencil and shaded in Photoshop 5.5.
First character is "Helen," second is "Dolph," and lastly, "Hayt." All are their creator.

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:

Beautiful facial expressions. You're always so good at portraying feeling. I always look forward to seeing more from you! Keep creating, please.

Looks like my comments on Ardwen were a bit belated (all of the eyes on this one have colour). I wonder what it would look like if you varied where the colour was, though (a coloured broach, gem...). That would only really be appropriate if the item had a special significance to the character, though. Just a thought - all of these portraits are beautiful.

These are grayscale commissions--the commissioners request that their characters' eyes be colored. :) One commissioner requested that the ends of her character's hair be red, so it varies depending on the client.

Oooh! That's an excellent idea--to draw it with pencil and shade digitally. I may have to try that. ^__^ Dunno why I didn't think of it before. Hmmm.

Very nicely done. ^__^ I especially like the girl. The expression in her eyes along with the colours is captivating.

I love this "greyscale" style you use for all these protraits. And the fact that you color only the eyes, it's a very nice touch:)
As always, fantastic work!

You put so much character into these portraits--they're absolutely mind-blowing! Very realistic, but much better than a photograph in my opinion because of the personality here that a camera never quite catches.

Keep up the amazing work! Your art is some of the most inspiring I've ever seen. :D
