Masquerade: WhimSea by Saimain Masquerade: WhimSea by Saimain
One of five masquerade-themed commission portraits for =The-Dragon-keeper! This one is Paelon, a prince of Omaega, one of the four kingdoms surrounding Atlantis from her stories. I pulled way, way too many hours on research and details, but given my increasing fascination with the ocean, that's all right. ^__^; I tried to pack a little of everything into here, including some of my favorite shells, anemonies and starfish in place of flowers, and a barnacle-and-seaweed cloak, hee.

Gorgeous! Only problem is that you say this is a prince. No matter how I look at it, I see a girl. The hair, face, and fashion (epecially the collar) is very feminine. The only thing that really says 'masculine' is the bit of flat chest you can see in the lower right corner (assuming, of course, that it's not just a shirt). Excellent detail, but some gender confusion.

Wow late response :blush: just going through my commission folder for a recap and noticed your comment :D
He's definitely a boy, boy being the operative word there, he's young and not quite into puberty yet so yeah, he does appear very feminine. What you see in the lower right corner is his tattoo, although it would be more accurate to call it a birthmark. Everything is pretty well spot on to what I referenced for him and I know I'm not gender confused, I'd say its more predominant due to the nature of the masquerade theme/series.

Sorry for the rant :blush: he's one of my pride and joys lol :D

Such a shame that I now have to buy this print to match the other 4 I have on my wall :) hehehe Can't wait to see the Here be dragons one!!

Do you do gift certificates by the way? I think all of my friends have commented on your artwork and where they can get it for themselves and would be nice to give them a certificate so they are able to :)

utterly amazing detail, you must have so much patience to be able to do all this for all your works. I saw some of your prints on elfwood, though I was a bit taken aback when I saw you stopped writing, the books were very interesting.

I love it! but I still got one question: How big was the format you drew this on and what paper did you use??? just being curious...
Saimain Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2011  Professional General Artist
It's 8.5x11", just normal acid-free printer paper :)
ameoname Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011  Student General Artist

You do the most amazing detail! Stunningly beautiful!

Awesome work!
Tobyana Featured By Owner May 19, 2011
Interesting… I love the kind of under the sea twist to it, rather than the all feathered designs you had previously done. I also love how you used a coral texture in addition to the sea critters to form the boarder.. LOVE the fish fin collar as well. I have to say, once again you have taken my breath away. One day I WILL purchase this print from you.. Unfortunately, my first student loan bills have begun to roll in, and I can't even afford those at the moment, so it might be a little while.. Christmas perhaps..

You should do some full color mask images. These are so beautiful, I can't imagine what this one would be like in color.. Oooh, with iridescent scales on the mask.. You would sell SO many prints!

Amazing as the rest of the series.:clap: Fantastic job with detail and composition planing as well as drawing all that in such detail of course! Just by looking at this piece my interest in ocean increases :lol: I bet the person who ordered was extremely happy with how you presented their character.
