Arlyn Graythorne by nachtwulf Arlyn Graythorne by nachtwulf
A somewhat better sketch of Arlyn (H R 10 Thorium Brotherhood) from World of Warcraft. Just sitting around in Stormwind, sharpening his daggers.

I may do a colored version of this; I may not, but he has fairly well-tanned skin and pure white hair, if anyone cares.

Not a big fan of WoW, can't get past the character designs and the shad ';pay every month' deal.

However, all that aside, this picture is great. The old-time feel of it really helps with the overall feel, and the pose is weighty, realistic. It's hard to do stuff like that make the subject actually look like he has some weight. Of course, the clothes are fantastic too, as well as the anatomy.

There is only one thing that seems strange to me, and it's his face. I don't know what it is, but something seems off, maybe in the eye/forhead area. Like I said, it escapes me what exactly is wrong, but something seems...I don't know, just a bit off. The rest is brilliant! And, honestly, I don't think you should color this. I think it would ruin the atmosphere of it.

I know what the problem is. The forehead's too short. Otherwise as you say, this picture is absolutely amazing!

I dunno...scars from a worgen attack WOULD be really chaotically placed. I like them both, but I love the relaxed feel of this shot. Like he really has nowhere he needs to be; like time just doesn't matter. Very nice, color or not! I love your work. :)

I like this one MUCH better than the last... The last one the scars looked more like chaotic tattoos

Wow! That is some nice shading!:thumbsup: The pose is also good, and I like the studying expression he has on his face.
Even though the shading is good, I think the pic would look even better colored, and the same goes for the background.
But either way this is a great picture! Nice work!:D

I would, but the thing is, I do CG at work, and right now, work-related stress has my tolerance for CG coloring things down to an extreme minimum. Frankly, the last thing I want to do is do stuff that I associate with work, because I'm not very happy with it at the moment, and it's an association thing. If I decide to color it, I will, but it probably not for at least 3 weeks to a month. I draw to relax, not to aggravate the stress in my life. (repost for second comment)

Ah, I see. I can understand that feeling. Hope your stress goes away soon, and your job straightens up!:thanks:

As much as this one looks nice I would like to see a colored version anyway because I'm curious about the color of that snake (show, don't tell!). I know those are scars but it looks like he's wearing a skin tight shirt with a wonky design. Color might help! Other than that I likes his expression while he's looking at his nifty blade!
