This is the portrait I did of Eyrin Fontramonn of Voldar. He is one of Christian Strobl's main heroes and can be read about at the Santharian Dream website (http://welcome.to/santharia). Santharia is dedicated to undetaking the creation of a Tolkien-like world on the web. He invites those who are interested in this type of fantasy to join him in his endevour. Here's the description Christian gave me: As Eyrin is the main character he'll change during his adventures. So at the beginning he's not much of a warrior or wizard, he's just a normal guy, not more than 20 years old at the beginning, brown shoulder long hair, well shaved, dark mysterious eyes but of course quite handsome as a hero to come needs to be. There's one special thing on his face: He once was struck by an arrow on his right cheek, so this'll add a bit of heroism to his appearance - but this doesn't make him ugly, only... interesting. To give him a bit more of innocence maybe it would be a good idea to draw him with his mouth a bit open, slightly laughing (but not too much). As for his clothing: He's the Vardynnian courier, so I'd suggest he's wearing a light cape (hope that's the right word) - I mean a cloth which only hangs down your back. The cape is held together with the sign of Vardưnn (Voldar as capital of this province): a circle with a flying eagle in the center of it, the ring is burning. The rest of his clothing is rather usual, nothing spectacular (no chain mail or something similar).

Great detailing on the sword and cloak. And it looks like you've captured the innocense.

Yeah, the best Eyrin I could ever imagine - exactly as I described him! But I think you've heard my compliments already, didn't you, John? Thanx again from Artimidor/Christian Strobl!

"I would expect the Enemy to look more fair, and feel more foul" We tend to want all our heros to be golden boys (or girls). I guess that's one of the things I loved about the movie "Willow" - he certainly didn't fit the stereotype for a would-be hero. Nor did Frodo. In building characters, I've often been as guilty as the rest in this.

This is an outstanding drawing. The character has no obvious anatomical inconsistencies and his garment is intricately detailed. The shading is a bit light for my own taste but its damn perfect regardless. Outstanding!!!!

hmm.. there are some flaws... the head should be a bit lower and more to the left. and the wrist is a bit to thin. other than that it's great. excelent details and shading
