Semiyar by Saimain Semiyar by Saimain
Semiyar, the silver-haired minstrel, storyteller, wanderer with the unmistakable purple feather and eyes to match, and Svenana, his silver lute who trills unceasingly to him and inspires the music he is most famous for.
Finally got the chance to finish a proper portrait of him and his ridiculous outfit, with all the random trinkets he manages to collect from his journeys. It's extremely colorful, as he likes to stand out in a crowd, but I escaped the worst of it by painting in monotone instead. XD The winged heart locket is a gift for his new sweetheart, Diana, and he's also wearing a moon charm of hers.

Your texture and detail is breathtaking.  I absolutely adore the textures in his hair and feather.  And that lute...  :la:

Ack! There is nothing about your pictures that I CAN'T love!!! I even love the grey-scale ones like this and I almost NEVER like those because I feel like the color gives it life, but your's have an abundance of beauty and life, without color. Giving only the eyes color was perfect. Everything about them is perfect. Even your SKETCHES are AMAZING! *Worships*
