    So... I got myself a wacom tablet for Christmas... because I've wanted one for like ten years. I'm not really a -great- drawererer, but I like to draw, so... this was the result of me sort of screwing around, trying to get a feel for drawing with a tablet instead of pencil/pen and paper.

    It's not amazing... and yes, I have always pictured Daklore as having stubby horns instead of massive goat horns.. I'm weird, so what! (not actually sure his eye colour is green, but, we'll roll with it, I don't even know if I wrote in eye colour in his description...) And yes, i know... the eyes are wonky. I've never been good at lining up eyes D: (my hands are worse. Far far worse.) And it's got wonky colouring and brushes used because I was... literally, playing around and seeing what I could do. Also, I think that ear is too high... D: Definitely too high
    Funny.

    I always pictured Daklore as a really tall gnome.

    If I'd said something about romance novels I'd understand the salt. Either way I recognize the unpopular opinion that 'Western' art is nice or that differences in taste exist. 

    I was thinking more along the lines of: 

    I'll also concede that my post was pretty low effort. I looked through the first few pages of this thread after posting again and I see plenty of different styles to appreciate.

    People honestly draw in the style they are familiar and comfortable with. As you can see above, I am terrible at western style, and you'll probably find with the evolution of pop culture most people will be more at ease with cartoonish styles (as it's more familiar, much easier and there are more tutorials for them).

    I am not directly pointing fun at you, but more of the culture of fantasy novels where a vast majority has beautiful women in them with no flaws, or a single flaw that's not actually a flaw and the overcome it or turn it into a positive and OMG EVERYONE FALLS IN LOVE WITH HER.

    HEY LOOK SOMETHING THAT ISN'T A DOLLMAKER OR ANIME CHARACTER GENERATOR



    Lineart for my commissions are done. Working on colour now.

    I really recommend the artist! Full body, full color for $10 and half-body full color for $7.50, and good quality to boot.

    Image result for arthas
  • RemiliaRemilia Posts: 67Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    I definitely admit that I love glowy rune swords and that may or may not have been inspired by WotLK. But the design of it was actually entirely up to the artist; I just gave them "an ominous, rune-etched bastard sword" and told them to go nuts, same with the armour.

    Once they had the lineart in, I used what they drew as a base to write the custom description, which they then colored in.

    The pose itself is 100% ripped off from Satsuki Kiryuin.

    When feet are spread that far apart, they should not be turned inwards like that. It's kinda attention-catching. The knees look kinda dislocated.  :#

    Nice picture otherwise.

    Yeh, way too late to change that now, but minor detail.
