Dark Elf Holimion by Rikyo Dark Elf Holimion by Rikyo
Just so i can upload sumthin and show folks im not a TOTAL slacker, sitting around enjoying my new wii..this is a WIP that I been workin on for a lil bit thats an art trade with my old buddy ~dragone Her character Holimion the Dark Elf..

I apologize to her for how long is been since ive been able to get sumthin out...but I been practicing techniques more than anything with this piece and find the whole process a bit less cumbersome..being able to start a drawing completely digital.

Im a lil more confident with painting now so hopefully i can wrap this up, cuz i cant wait to color it...hope it comes out the way i plan.

here's hoping.

EDIT

lkasdjfsjdflsj!! After much BS'ing and what not this thing is finally finished and out of my hair..I guess it came out how i wanted but if not oh well. Alot of different artist inspired me on this pic..so merging some of their styles with my own was the final key... well its done. Enjoy.

The way his eyes and mouth are both flat lines along with the eyebrows gives me the impression that he's letting out the most extreme "HMMMMMMM" of all time for some reason :^D I don't know what to point out here, every part of it is stunning.
