'When Tarthalis the Immortal was young, before he came to his calling, he served a while as a priest in the court of the Sun-King, and was reknowned for his wisdom.' Picture of a character of mine. Lots of fun Art Noveau drapery and the kind of stippling that's going to give me arthritis before I'm 30. And just to quell the comments, it is a boy, even if it's hard to tell. Pen and ink.

I think the outfit would be the thing to make us thing he might be female, but the face Really makes it obvious that hes a guy. Plus men can wear greek(?) tunic things too. My favorite part is the sun in the backround.

There you go with the inks again. ;} Oish. The design in the background is really great...also, the draipery is nice. I always get drawn in by draiper. Kinda like lense flares. Or a bug zapper. Infinite fun.

Okay, I just have to say this before I go and draw a picture to prove I'm better than cousin and drawing.

This picture's detail looks painful indeed. I could tell it was a guy off the bat and he's pretty good-looking too! ^_~ The overall greatness of this picture leads me to ask: would you mind if I put this on my tour? If I don't get a response I'll just take that as a 'I don't care' and go ahead.

:-) Grace Dawn Palmer replies: "You're welcome to use this in your tour, and best of luck with your drawing!"

*squeels and glomps the pretty bishie* He's soooo adorable! Can I keep him?????
If not, does he have a twin brother?

The prettiness of the picture! It's amazing!
I just have to say - don't color it. It looks real enough as it is, if you colored it..... oh dear...
or maybe you should... if you get bored enough.
Congrats on Mod's Choice!
