I think some of these should be turned into ingame portraits. Just like the ones done for Sister Merielle and Jonas Rokranon.

Especially the Tribal Elf sketch and the first Ithilwen sketch.

I like the contrast between your illustrations and the backgrounds. You've found a way to create a contrast that still works. It still feels like the background is a part of the drawing, but it doesn't take away from the detail of the actual drawing.

TY! :) But I have to confess, its more that I'm lazy with self drawn backgrounds at the moment. I try to still get the right atmosphere and backgrounds can't be missed in those! :P I'm glad you noticed the effect I was going for!

The style in the last one reminds me a lot of the style from the game Limbo. Very simple, yet highly atmospheric :)

That last one is my favorite piece of art on this whole server, bar none!! You can almost feel the contentment between the two characters, truly lovely :!:

Very nice, although I would say that looks like a face quite at peace, rather than one saddened and lost. Perhaps a slight tweak of the corners of the mouth to a more downward position would give the impression you are after. I can't help but see the slightest hint of a content smile there. Just my take, but well done none the less. :)

No you see it quite right actually! She is thinking of him. The one she lost. The memory is good, but as soon as she opens her eyes it is gone. It is the feeling you have when you lose someone you love. Be it family or a friend. The memory makes you smile, and sad at the loss at the same time. Does that make sense? Like laughing and crying at the same time...

I love the artwork it is really great work ! I am working on my own sketches at the moment but one I am working on it pictures of Doron Amar. Once I have them complete And uploaded I will start my postings. The Tribal Elf reminds me of Celasorsan and actually he is about that size with the tribal tats and how often has he been seen without a shirt?
