Temptation -sketch by Saimain Temptation -sketch by Saimain
Another rough sketch for a planned pencil illustration of Morgan and Nimri. This is early in their relationship, a few months after he captured her, when the power-struggle between them was at its height. Morgan's not sure how to respond to her attempts to seduce him. XD

Eh...I'm very self-conscious about showing my unfinished work to anyone, which is why I almost never post rough concept sketches online. I know they're messy and brimming with errors. I'm only posting this one because I don't foresee it being finished in pencil this year, due to too many other projects clamoring for my attention. ^__^; This will probably be dropped into scraps soon...

Very lovely but quick question why is she trying to seduce him and why did he catch her........ is there anywhere I could see the story between them?

The story itself is not written for the public, but if you click on the link included in the description above you can learn more about the world and characters and their history and relationships to each other. It should answer your questions. :)

I actually love this rough sketch version. There's so much life in it (not that there isn't in your finished works as well!). Don't be embarrassed, it's awesome and great to see!

Sorry for writing mistakes T-T
Kittymoe Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's beautiful, just beautiful and last but not least beautiful ^^
I look at your sketch I read the comments and... just laugh out of joy.
I don't know why. I mean I should be jealous of your talent but somehow I'm not.
I'm just enjoying your work and aim to one day draw beautifully like you.
Really the few days ago when I found your work through searching I started to draw again everyday (even if it just looks horrible XD)
So I must say thank you.
And please...please... more pictures of Morgan his just so cute.

PS. How much your Artbook about Fearen and Morgan (two in one) would cost in euro? I'm thinking to someday buy it but don't know if my allowence allows me...

Kittymoe (sorry that I rode so much...)
Saimain Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2011  Professional General Artist
Thank you so much for your comment! I'm happy that my work inpires you to draw again. :)

A new edition of the Art of Faeren and Morgan artbook will be released in the next week or two. Pricing will be around 30 Euros + shipping, I think?

According to you it is just a >>rough<< sketch.

But honestly,...uhm ...calm yourself :D Although this is just a sketch it is gorgeous to look at.

So I totally have to agree with Split-Heart, especially with her last point!!

IshbalanHealer Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2011
omg, its official - I love your work. Its so amazing, and the "errors", as you so call it, are actually a very good thing. Because they |show| how dedicated you are to your work, and to me, it just makes everything so much more beautiful. I think that this is probably one of the few that actually one of my REAL favorites on DeviantArt.

It's taken me over a month to sit down and type a reply, but I want to say I love your sketches.

There's something very lively about the sketch version of any image, which is the capture of the picture's essence, the simplicity of the lines suggesting of only what is necessary. It is the first realization of an idea.

The light from behind him, her hand on his wing, his hand on her arm, their locked and focused gaze; This is simply beautiful.

Saimain Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2010  Professional General Artist
Thank you so much. *hugs* I rarely post sketches--I'm always too self-conscious and embarrassed of all the glaring errors in them, but I'm glad you can see this for what it's meant to capture. :)

Actually I LOVE seeing the rough sketch! It's like getting to see how the trick behind the illusion is done! Not to mention your sketches put my best drawings to I totally agree with other people here when they say don't be self concious! And don't worry...we're all artist long as you say it's a sketch, we know it's not the finished product. Anybody who complains is a dork.
Kaytara Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
For the love of all that is holy....

PLEASE post your "rough concept sketches" more often!

I love the sketchy quality, and it's just awesome in general!

...I mean, the number of faves speaks for itself.

So don't be selfsh by indulging your self-consciousness and just post more of these awesome things! ^^ Ahem.

(And please post more of Morgan, specifically. :) ^^ <3 )

That said, I love the poses and expressions. And the details of the hands is just awesome for a rough sketch. And I love the trees and the composition.... And I'm beginning to sound like a broken record now, so let it simply be said that you're (still) a wonderful artist and please post more of these! ^^ :)
Atenea217 Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2010
oh my god, this is so beautiful! well, your drawings always are, but i just adore this one.. his face looks so longing.. love his expression....
shideh Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2010   General Artist
Even though it's a sketch, I adore this one. The composition, the trees, their poses and perhaps my favourite part; the gorgeous lighting *__* The atmosphere is beautiful!

Oh, almost forgot. THE WINGS :love:
JennHoffmann Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really like this. Very much. I'm really looking forward to the 'finished' piece! Keep up the fabulous work!~Jenn
Dark-Blue-Raven Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
you shouldn't be worried about uploading unfinished work, it looks great
I especially like the look they're exchanging, hesitant and yet desireful^^
Art-By-Mel-DA Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2010   Digital Artist
Your finished works are, without fail, always a pure delight. How anyone can even begin to criticize your works-in-progress is beyond me. I would have to say they are simply looking for flaws, out of pure jealousy.
