Very nice pic. nice work on the gold. He looks scary with those while eyes. Great skin tone and musculature. Sky van Niekerk
replies: "oooh im glad you like it! I mean.. REALLY glad lol^^ It’s my first real attempt at photoshop... the moonelf was my first but its pretty basic..just added the colors to get used to the program. This one I actually tried to get the debt I have in my pencildrawings with shading. It still can have a lot more detail and shading before its on my pencildrawing level....but for now im quite happy with the outcome It does look scary those white eyes dont they... Cant wait to read his story! it isnt finished yet "

This is damn nice! I literally was being taught by Tanya last night on how to use Photoshop..... I realllly suck.... I’m trying to color the new version of my VaroGorgon pic with it, and if I could do 1/3 as good as you did with this i would be truly happy! l like how as always you have gotten the body form just right and the feel of going for a walk... er.... in the clouds.... Love it! the color work is very well done! As always you inspire me! Sky van Niekerk
replies: "hey^^ let me know when you colored your picture, I’d like to see it I’m working on a second character of the same story as this one... man..photoshop can be a pain when you are not familiar with it. if your gf has any advise for mine, send her by "

Well done Sky
I think you’re on the right track considering that (as you said) this was one of your first attempts using PS. I think it’s a great piece! And I love Edgar’s golden shields Sky van Niekerk
replies: "Edgar is really cool^^ Have you read his story? Dangerous guy... This was actually my first serious drawing in ps, but compare this one with the one that is in moderation atm. I’m pretty proud of the new one. see if you can see some progress "

wow... Are all fellow-counsellors so lightly dressed - and equally handsome? I like the pose although it suggests that he is a bit narcistic and arrogant... but I like that in characters... makes them very intriguing
good drawing and you are on the right track with photoshop!
and thanks for the visit! I appreciate it very much! Sky van Niekerk
replies: "ty 2^^ yes he is extremely arrogant lol! you can read about him btw in David Paoletti’s library (link on my page in friendlist) "

This is beautiful and I love how you didn’t give his eyes any Iris or anything. It just looks like they’re glowing. Sky van Niekerk
replies: "yes he is a divine all knowing character, I wanted to show this by giving him glowing eyes. kinda creepy "
