Amazing that I, the expert on this fictional character, should get the first comment. Anyhow, I am truly impressed by the depth of your perceptions of R.A. Salvatore's books. I am glad to know that Drizzt has inspired others besides me. The sky is simply gorgeous, and the eyes bring such emotion to the picture that it's beauty cannot be denied. Drizzt's face looks a little bit 2D for my taste, but I love the background. Nicely done! Jay w simcox
replies: "Your very right in saying that Drizzt looks very 2D,i think maybe the back ground makes it even more noticable too.I have no excuse's really. Usualy i tend to focus on the characters in my drawings and the backdrops end up looking more like after thoughts.But on this picture i tryed out some new methods on my back ground and got a little sweaped away by it.I have considered redrawing and reinserting a better rendition of Drizzt,and your show of interest has push the point a little more for me.Thanks for your comment on my perceptions also,nice to know im not the only soul who looks so deep into Salvatores wonderful work.I toiled a great deal on those eyes,thank you so much for noticing them."

You're never alone in the world of Salvatore; I think he's the future Tolkien and he deserves every ounce of credit he can get. Have you read The Thousand Orcs? Anyway, keep up on the Drizzt drawings, because you have the ability to capture the passion that Salvatore to easily puts into words, while artists have a difficult time capturing it in pictures. Thanks for doing so well on Drizzt and taking the time to respond to my comment.** Jay w simcox
replies: "I couldnt agree more with what you say about Salvatore being the modern Tolkien.I do actualy have a copy of a thousand orc's,but im kind of saving it until next year so i dont have to wait so long for the last installment to be realeased.Iv had a few comments from Drizzt fans about my work realted to those wonderful books,and i always take it as high priase when a fellow fan of those books says they like my work.Im extreamly pleased that you took the time to return and pass a second comment on my gallery.As this is my gallery i feel its my duty to at least ackowledge other peoples interest in my pictures.Thanks again,im honoured that you felt moved to return to my small corner of elfwood "

Amazing picture. Drizzt has the best eyes!! Jay w simcox
replies: "Im flatered you liked my picture enough to take time to pass comment,more so as you seem to like it.Im glade you focused on his eyes,they are an important part of his character as they mark him out from his race physicaly in the same way as his morality dose.They were intended to be a focal point in the picture for that reason.Thanks for taking time to noticing them "

I can’t imagine I overlooked this picture the last time I had visited your gallery! But I did 8(). It’s strange, but I am so happy to discover it now!
What can I say... the composition is great, I love the close-up of Drizzt’s beautiful lavender eyes. And the close-up is really, really well done.
But you know what? I just thought that Drizzt was hardly wearing green ranger’s clothing at this time; he was not a ranger at all, he was just adjusting to the Surface life... remember that nice episode with the skunk?
) Guess at this time he was wearing his Underdark piwafwi in it’s most pitiful state after many years of "The Hunter" style of life... But never mind, it’s just me and my imagination
The picture is great, I love it. Do more Drizz-zzzzzzzz-zzt! Jay w simcox
replies: "Im happy you like the close up on his eyes.A characters eyes have always been a very strong focal point for me.The windows to the soul as they say.This scene is actual ment to be later in his life.Around the Icewind Dale trilogy,hence the snow capped spine of the world mountains in the distance.Dressed as a Ranger with twinkle glowing on his hip.I can just imagine our hero getting up early and rushing to the top of some cold lonely mountain just to watch the sun rise.Im pleased you noticed this picture in the end.Its one of my favourits."

I love it! But its so sad! Jay w simcox
replies: "I think perhaps i did want to create a little bitter sweet uncurrent to this, so i guess your right, there is a little saddness to it all."

Its sad .I love it though. Jay w simcox
replies: "Im pleased you like it. Strange how we can love things for the saddness they can evoke."

That is so sad yet sweet. Jay w simcox
replies: "You seem to be of like mind to Rose and Catt, the two who have commented above. Im glade you'v picked up on the double meaning of his tears."
