Danathen by Saimain Danathen by Saimain
I need to paint more realism studies; they're so much fun, and very educative! Adding more depth and varying shades of color to skin really brings life to a character, and you can get away with being a bit messy. :) It's quite fitting that Danathen should be the first of my characters to benefit from a realism study, as he has so quietly and humbly waited years for me to draw him again. His last poor little portrait was back in 2004: [link] He's so sweet and patient... ^__^;

You can learn more about Danny and the "Not All Kings Wear Gold" storyline here: [link]

Painted from scratch in Photoshop 5.5. Roughly 20-30 hours (gah, it takes me so long to do anything), grain filter added for effect. Loose reference for his eyes and mouth: [link]

you made him so awesome and beautiful, Adele! also, great skin colours. and... don't kill me for that... but he looks a bit as if he were [link] young and beautiful cousin. i have no idea why i saw it this way... sorry. must be the lips... something in the shadows and the distancies between his features.

oh, and if i may add a bit of constructive criticism, the translucency of his ears lacks a bit of saturated pink to look more natural. or maybe my monitor's playing tricks on me.
