I Hear the Silence... by Saimain I Hear the Silence... by Saimain
Been meaning to finish up this piece in pencil since last year. Diana and the minstrel Semiyar, a couple affectionately referred to as "the bird and the bard." Two special people from entirely different worlds who found they had something to offer each other. ^__^ For once Semiyar is not wearing his enormously-feathered hat *gasp* although he insisted upon keeping all his trinkets and frills. Partly a personal piece and partly a gift for the ever-awesome Kelly.

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

*headtilt* I just realized something.. I LOVE your pieces between Semiyar and Diana... But I don't believe you have posted any in color, have you? I mean, I could just be missing one, you have a LOT of art up, but I'm not remembering any?

You should totally do one in color some time. I would love to see you you would handle his wardrobe in color!

Hee, I'm sure I'll tackle Semiyar in color someday! But for now...his wardrobe is time-consuming enough in pencil. ^__^;;

haha, I can't wait to see what you come up with for it ^.^ Course, you could always just color a pencil drawing you've already done ^.^

I've been hearing that from a lot of people, lately...I don't know the reason. Sometimes DA's glitches make you randomly drop people from your watchlist, so make sure the "watch Deviant" box is still checked?

And can you please link me to your journal where the coloured versions of Heart of Gold is posted? I can't find it even tough I've been looking at your old journal entries

Wow, this piece speaks more than a 1000 words! I love their tender facial expressions as they are holding each other in comfort, and the forest is the perfect background for the couple to leave their troubles behind. (I went to your website to find out more about the characters, very heartbreaking but sweet that they found solace in each other) Great Job! :D
