Precious by Saimain Precious by Saimain
After four years, Sali was due for another portrait. He's a teenager now, after all! :) This was the spontaneous result of a doodle that happened while I was working on another painting, and also an experiment with a softer painting style. I based his wings off of goose wings...they're so gorgeous and fluffy. The cherry blossoms and glass gems are just pretty things to symbolize Sali's love of nature and tendency to collect shiny objects, as all his kind do. ^__^

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

I love everything about this. Absolutely everything. And the longer I stare at it, the more I see! Like the white eyelashes and eyebrows–those are amazing and creative!

Also, you are one of the best at playing with lighting. I love how his hair and feathers catch the light and seem to glow, and the subtle play of highlights on his hands.

I love the soft painting style you used. c: Also, I really like the innocence Sali seems to retain even as a teenager. I mean, he just looks so...innocent here. XD

Oh, and the eyes and wings are GORGEOUS.

This is such a wonderful portrait of Sali. I have loved this character since the first time I saw him, and I like very much how the colour scheme in your paintings of him always consists of light, sweet pastelle shades.
He was beautiful as a child, and remains beautiful as a teenager :) It is not fair, by the way - how come he doesn't have any zit issues?

Thank you. :) Sali is a Shaftan--his people do not suffer from physical ailments or disease, so long as they remain in their world.

I wish to be reborn as a Shaftan, then. You must be like a Godess of this world you have created, so perhaps you could fix that for me? ;)

Saimain. With all the stories you make, are they published? :la: Or are they only on the MeadowHeaven website?

The stories are a private, ongoing project created by myself and a close friend; they're not available to the public. You can find information and details about all the worlds and characters on my website, though. :)

Ooooh Alright then.. I just thought the stories would have been nice to see, but its based on personal preferences. All the worlds and characters are delightful to see. :D

And.. crap. I totally did something wrong. D: and I never mentioned it before. crap crap. Your Beautiful Ruin artwork with Luke was inspiration behind one of mine with the same title and I never mentioned it in the artist comments. ._. I feel like an idiot.
