I remember this. Some one sent it to me a very long time ago and told me it was his. Good to know who the rightful owner is. Beautiful work.

Thank you. :)

Heh...that happens a lot. Regardless whether I put my watermark on my artwork or not. *sigh*
irishpagan Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2009
Well, it was a long time ago. Over seven years. I recognized two others that he showed me as well. Either way, its pleasent to meet the proper owner.

AH who does not secretly wish to be a minstrel? They are so cool!
I love this picture! the pointed ears give it a fantasy feel.
yunamira Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2008
I love this picture! I first saw it in the pages of your book (Saberondan, along with...oh goodness, I've forgotten the first book's title...well, anyways, my friend received both books as Christmas presents, so I filched Saberondan while she started in on her second read =P). I probably spent a good ten minutes or so total just drooling over this illustration. I love Semiyar in this picture! *salivates* xD

This is incredibly adorable! I love the overall feel of the image! I am especially fond of her little arm wrapped around him! Too cute!

Makes me think of Vanyel and Stefan from Mercedes Lackey's 'LastHerald Mage' trilogy. If it weren't for the elf ears...

gothicshidre Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2005
All your black and white sketches are wonderful! Do you ever do comission peices?
Saimain Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2005  Professional General Artist
Yes, I've done far too many commission pieces over the can see a few hundred of them on my site, along with all the rest of my work if you want. Informations on commissions and such can also be found there. I'm not accepting any at the moment.
MegaLisa830 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, it would be great to have a minstrel, even greater to have Semiyar as a minstrel.. lol ^__^ Anyways, I like their poses and expressions, it really looks like they're singing together, while Semiyar's playing. :) And their hair. And Semiyar's lute and feather. :)

Mmmmmm. There's something that really speaks to me in this piece. I can't quite put my finger on it....

I guess I'll just have to +fav it. ^_~
tessakitten Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2004
OMG ONLY ONE COMMENT ON THIS..what is wrong with the world!???
I mean i've been browsing through your whole gallery and have really WANTED to comment on all your work but i thought it would be irritating to get on DA and see "300 million messages from Tessa Kitten" or something LOL

but when i saw only ONE COMMENT on this GORGEOUS peice i thought i would die. This is amazing *clings* and yeah, she really DOES have it all figured out. Kudos!
