..::Raziel::..

So took me nearly a week but i wasnt painting everyday :\
sorry it took me so long but the result was definetely worth it

the armor design isnt originally mine it's a modified Dark Crystal heavy armor from Lineage 2 and so is the crown
When i redesign him i'll create an original armor.

So what do you guys think? is it up to your expectiations? :D
let me know your opinions on the painting and such

about Raziel (original character of my book):
He's the supreme ruler of the kingdom of Amaldan. His corrupt ways led to the creation of the rebel force, whom try to dethrone him although with no results. Éron along side Ivor, Ginevra and Hubris are on a quest towards the rebel HQ, on the way they are also trying to recruit the finest of warrior...
Raziel also has a relationship with Mirabell whom he recruited from the Marble Tower to assist him as a mor wizard. Mirabell always had a secret crush on him but in the midst of the action they end up having a more serious relationship :D eheh

okay comments critiques and thoughts are more than welcome :D

I never thought that Lineage 2's armor was so... unique? As soon as I saw it I thought "oh, that reminds me of Lineage 2!", read the summary and wa-la. It looks wonderful though! Love the colors!

very glad you liked it

yeah im trying to get rid of the L2 look in my art ^^; but also i still want to have some elements cuz i really like it
i want to make it more unique so people dont instantly think about Lineage 2 :D

Lol sorry ^_^;
Their armor is very distinct, so that will be a challenge to make it more original. Perhaps also the pose? It reminded me much of a male dark elf (personally).
But I still think it's a great picture none the less!

You're getting great at coloring objects, like metals and other such every day things, but I think you need to work on skin...
Try practicing with recreating pictures of models or something. You need to do some work with proportions and skin colors. Work with humans for once in your speed paintings.

You know, I've been wondering if I should ask your for a request again...I just have so many characters in my head nd a few really want to be down on paper, or on the net, rather...Think you'd be willing to do another request for me?

When I get the chance, I will most definately post both the Dragon Slayer and Blythe. I had fun coloring them both...
Give me something else to color, I need to get back in the grove of drawing. ^_^And when i have more time, I'll send you a note.

Sorry I haven't been sketching Raziel. I'll get around to it when I have time. Right now I'm working on my personal project and wracking my brain to come up with new design ideas. :(

Love the pose, the colouring on the character himself, and the personality. Nicely painted! The armour is nicely done,and drawn. The cape could maybe have some more shading depth or colour?

The armor looks fantastic and realistic (though I would suggest adding even brighter highlights to make it more shiny). :D The pose and expression are effective as well (I wonder if adding shadow beneath the figure would emphasize his magnificent pose even more, but that's up to you). Your painting skills have definitely improved (to compare with the older version of this character). :clap: But one small detail that bothers me is his nose. I don't know what noses elves have, but to me it looks a little wry. If you drew the face first and then added the crown, I guess it is fine then... :confused:

One thing I would suggest doing (if you haven't tried it earlier) is always reverse your drawing horizontally before considering it to be finished (like you would see in a mirror). This helps to notice imperfections in proportions, otherwise it may not be visible because after a long time you get used to your drawing. I usually forget to do this myself and when I remember I have to fix a lot of stuff (best way to avoid this is reverse your work as often as possible)... :nod:

Besides, what program(s) do you use to create your work?
I've been using Photoshop CS2 ever since I started creating digital art (and still don't know how to use it more efficiently). ^^;

eheh okay first of all thank you for the kind words
the reason why i dont use lighter tones is because it doesnt quite fit the style but i shall see :D
yeah his face was one of my main problems >< and i did the crown first and then the face ^^;

regarding flipping the image horizontally that's one thing i should realy start doing >< and dont know why i didnt do that earlier :XD:

i use only Photoshop CS3 :D
