Isabela: So what's with that magical fisting thing you do?
Fenris: Um...sorry?
Isabela: you know, when you stick your hand into people.
Fenris: Oh, that, its um...talent.
Isabela: you can make so much coin with that.

Fenris' magic fingers XD!

Fenris is bringing sexy back with a whole load of RED!!!

I've been obsessing over Fenris for the past week when i was trying to procrastinate from exam revision. Now that he's out of my system and onto the screen XD

I can't draw blood to save my life...hope that blob doesn't look too weird.

I don't know if it's just me..or I may be a massive sadist, but I love it when Fenris sticks his hand into some evil person and yanked their heart out...

Tool: Paint tool SAI
Time: 4 hrs
Watch me draw this at 16x speed [link]

heyas talespirit;

i think this is a fantastic work. the blood is great; the blood spatters and drips on him are great. the blood 'sploosh' across the front is fabulous! wish i could paint blood that well. the stripes in the back don't look so much like blood as like a sort of tiger-stripe pattern, but i don't think it *needs* to look like blood. i think a red/dynamic/action pattern in red works really well there.

if it were my piece, there's two areas i would be less than happy with. the first is, it's a little difficult to see where/what he is licking. it looks like the thumb blade? but if i were doing it, i'd probably make it more lurid and obvious anyway, which is not necessarily 'better.'
--btw, that SO reminds me of sebastian (of black butler) taking his gloves off with his teeth. very hot. don't know if that was an inspiration or just totally random. ; )

the other thing is where the blood sploosh goes below his elbow. it looks like the sploosh is meant to be far in front of him, but those tangental edges there make it appear back alongside or behind the elbow. i would splutch a bit of sploosh up over the elbow to make it overlap distinctly. that would bring the sploosh forward again in that one area.

speaking from experience in art school, you've also managed to avoid some common composition problems. you *don't* have the sword blade bisecting the lower corner, and the hilt *isn't* centered in the upper corner, so you avoided slicing those unaesthetically.

you have your character angled, and not centered/symmetrical. you have great negative space, the shading and modelling on the figure is fabulous, the shading on the background to lay it back so it doesn't overpower the figure is brilliant. i LOVE that watercolour-esque thing you have going on to model his hair.

great job, all around!

I've been playing DA2 for a while and I've had Fenris in my system for four weeks. XD Now the song "Can't Get You Out of My Head" comes to mind. :p Fenris is a seducter of women everywhere... and now Varric's line: "Women would have broody babies in your honor" comes to mind.
