Ephemeral Throne -pencil by Saimain Ephemeral Throne -pencil by Saimain
Faeren sleeping in a partial reality, cradled and sheltered in the arms of nature. He's actually in a room, which is dissintrigrating into a forest around him. This is the underlying pencilwork for [link] ^___^

(Sorry for all the sigs...*somebody* has sticky little fingers...)

Wow...this is nice...I should try penciling things out, but they'd look different with digital watercolor than with the digital acrylics/oils or something...
I love your style. ^__^

Gorgeous peice. Sucks about stickyfingers, though. :( No matter, its not hampered at all by the signatures. Do what you must, even if its a big MINE plastered right across the middle ;p

beautiful! I love the way you draw the nature in all of your art. And don't worry about the sigs., they take nothing away from the picture and keep your art safe at the same time.

Woooooow... I can see another "Rover's Cripple" scale picture coming up ;) Didn't you say after the last one that you'd never do so much vegetation again? ;)

Can't wait to see it finished!

Oh wow.... That's incrediable. What I wouldn't do to have my room turn into that. The detail on the leaves and ground is sickening; I can't wait to see it finished! Oh, and a question I just remembered. I know you said that you had to use your middle name for "legal reasons", I think, when you had Rover's Cripple published. If you're allowed to say, what reason was it? I mean, you have a beautiful middle name (kudos to your parents, haha!) but I dunno... the thought of going my my middle name is just so...different! Anyway, just curious ;)

No, not legal reasons, personal reasons. I'm using Adele Lorienne as my pen name for my fantasy work, and it'll always remain that way, whether I get married or no. :)

Ok, thanks for clearing that up for me! I think that's an excellent idea... and "Lorienne" has such a fantasy essence to it, lol

It kinda looks like is neck has been slilghtly severed, because of where it's sitting on his shoulders, but other than that it is a great sktech.

it's interesting how the character is emboldened by the lack of deep shading in the background and landscaping. that's a very unique style

oh wow O.O
this is going to be murder on your arm and hand when you paint it *gives you crates of painkillers and theraputic music to listen to when you take a break*

it's lovely already, and I bet everybody will be blown away by the final piece. your art is absolutely gorgeous and evertime I see the thumbnail in my box, I instantly click it before anything else (well, right after anything by my bf...it's understandable, right?) and stare at it for ages before finally scrolling down to leave a comment....which I just now realized is getting rather long. ^^ hehe

Anyway, I can't wait until it's finished, but take your time ^_~ don't rush yourself. Strain is never good to a person. :hug: Keep up the beautiful work, hun

Your art is... magnificent! Look at all that little tiny detail! Wow, I can't wait for the finished version of this one and the rest of the larger one. ^_^* and I can see past the siggies. I wonder who has been stealing your artwork and who I need to ban. I'd hate for someone to take what little ones I do. O.o Anyways, beautifully done, hun. Keep up the good work, please. You are one of the very few that make my trip to DeviantArt worth it. :) Thank you.
