Masquerade: Radiance by Saimain Masquerade: Radiance by Saimain
Took me four months (with many interruptions), but all five masquerade-themed portrait commissions for =The-Dragon-keeper are now finished! *dances*
This last one is Seleeris, a fiery (and fire-element) princess, with focus on Gloriosa flowers and the Red Bird of Paradise for her theme. I failed a previous version of this and had to start over, which cost me about a week of work, but I finally got her to cooperate! Gloriosa flowers are insanity. o_O

Your masquerade drawings are simply fabulous! What is your favoured paper? With this much graphite, you would need something with a heavier weight I would imagine. Love it!

Nothing special, I'm afraid, just your average 8.5x11" acid-free printing paper. ^__^;;

Thank you for asking, but no. It's a paid commission of a client's original character, so I can't give permission for it to be altered, colored or posted anywhere else. ^__^;

:iconravenwolfe0:
Ravenwolfe0 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2011
darn but thanks :). If you did or if we can get permission from the client, here is what I offer.

1-You would be credited with the drawing. Also your client can be mentioned (however y'all would want).
2-I would only post it here with your (both?) permission and nowhere else.
3-I would link to your page, and to the original and if the client has a DA page link to their copy and their page.
4-Would there be anything else you think you or your client might want?

If you want to ask your client this is what I offer. I ask to do this mainly for fun and to learn and spark my creative side. But I do like to hear what the artists think of my coloring job. In coloring I use colored pencils. Here is a link to my colored folder:
