Yeah, can you try to make a slightly different version the way Faugar suggested, Quellion, and upload it for comparison? I guess as an artist himself he might have the best eye for what needs to change.

Otherwise the picture is very idyllic and extremely detailed as always, right until the bag's design with the leaf-thingy to close it, the tree bark details in the background or the reed at the front - cool lighting as well, once again with this epic touch when you see the background stretching far back until the mountains rise high up:)   - Great work! :clap  

What do you plan next? Guess we have another dwarf available or the Centoraurian guy for disposal.

I love the rich, warm colours!   :clap :clap :clap   Quellion, thank you for this beautiful picture.  It's wonderful to have artists like you (and the others, of course) here in Santharia.:hug

Ok, I'll upload a different version to compare. Next will be the centoaurian, if it's still free to get :)

If you do the Centoraurian, Quellion, make sure to read this thread, here Faugar posted a first sketch (in his 3rd post there) and got some comments and suggestions. Check especially Curgan's comment, because he wrote the description of thie tribe.

You're reading this Faugar? If so, please confirm that you'll don't do the Centoraurian as well. Available for now I guess is another dwarf (the Kavorgerim) methinks if you have time for another one.

Oh, this is gorgeous!  I love the lighting, of course - and the landscape's drama.

Actually the whole scene has an absorbing emotion, produced by a sense that we are poised at an uncertain cusp of time...is it sunset or sunrise?  Could it be late spring, with the golden highlights on the green leaves, or early fall, with the frost just beginning?  Is the elf's expression one of amusement or frustration?   It's a marvelous juxtaposition which really involves one with the picture.  Bravo!


By the way, Quellion, the bag was my error.  In the first sketch I visually misinterpreted the solid side of the bag, to the right of the picture, for its open top!  I couldn't see how the fish might have slithered out.  Now I'm 'reading' the picture correctly, and it works - sorry about that, and I'm glad you kept your artistic choice intact there.

Here's the modified version (right), next to the old one (left) for easier comparison :)

Yes, I think the right version is indeed better, it's not that extreme as the other one. That ok with everyone?

Sorry to be a pain, but I would really like to see the colour on his cheeks blended or lightened  - I don't think it looks natural, whether it is intended as him blushing, or as an effect of the light. If I have missed something as to why it is like that, please let me know, but otherwise, would it be possible to tone it down, Quellion? Does anyone else agree?

The rest of the picture I love!

Perhaps just a tiny bit, Grunok, but Injerin Elves are supposed to be quite fair skinned and ruddy cheeked, so Quellion was just following my description.  I figure if you combined that with the lighting effect, it would be a fairly vivid colouration.

However, I think Grunok has a point here--maybe just blend the edges a touch, so the colour is less distinctive  from the surrounding skin?  Ultimately, I guess it's up to you, Quellion, what you want to do with it.  As you know, I already think it's pretty fabulous and feel very flattered to have a picture created to my request. :clap   :hug

Yes, the right version is much better!

Yeah:D  That's it:)  - Can you upload the fullsized version on the Santharian resources server as usual then, Quellion?

Oh yes, Quellion is very gently with want-to-be-artists like you and me ;)  

The face is so nice, that it is a pity one doesn't see it too clearly, even with the big version. Wouldn't it fit for a persons entry?


Oooor, could we use it for Aran's person's entry, for my pic will take some time  till it is finished, I have found a problem in my software which will be fixed only with the next update. The entry could go up then much faster ;)   (Not too fast though, it is too much fun to write it! :lol  )
