Varric Tethras
Varric Tethras of Dragon Age. I love me some good lookin' dwarf! Too bad he isn't a romance option, he could have sooo mended my bleeding heart after the first playthrough of DA:I (yeah, guess who I romanced).

Various pencils, shading with paper blenders, soft rubber, digitally tinted. This is a photograph of the original drawing.

Next up: the eggman!

Thanks for dropping in - comments and constructive criticism are very welcome :)!

Dorian Pavus
A first try at Dorian Pavus of Dragon Age Inquisition, aka "Sparkles", the most fashionable mage in all of Thedas.

Charcoal, soft rubber and a hard fight against the paralyzing demon of perfectionism.

Thanks for dropping by! Any constructive criticism is very welcome :).

AlmaUralt's Profile Picture
AlmaUralt

A shrink with a weakness for science fiction who thought it was time to start drawing again - hi @ all fellow deviants, thanks for dropping in and I hope you enjoy what you see here :)!

Since I first played Mass Effect a couple of years ago, I've become a total ME-nut. In my opinion it's one of the most sophisticated and thought-through fictional universes since Star Trek - which I am also a HUGE fan of. Fan as in fanatic. I've decided to draw portraits of all main ME characters and maybe throw in a Star Trek char now and then. Let's see where this leads...
How do YOU do it? It's relatively easy to get to the point where about 80% of a picture is finished, you can clearly see where it's headed, you *could* say it's done but there are still 20% missing for it to be really perfect. And achieving these remaining 20% is one of the most arduous, strenuous tasks ever. At least, to me. After a few hours, I just don't perceive those tiny (or sometimes not so tiny) flaws anymore. Sometimes my boyfriend points something out to me that immediately becomes patently obvious, but I didn't notice before. So how do you do it?
Do you put the piece away for a few days and then get back to work with a fresh look at it?
Or do you just fine-tune it relentlessly until it's the way you want it?
Do you show the unfinished piece to friends or family to help you point out where improvements could be made?

I'd be interested to hear your experiences and opinions on this :)!

Tehehe, nein nein - das ist ein uralter Nickname aus den früheren Zeiten des Internets, als ich noch jung und albern war ;). Vielen Dank für deine Kommentare übrigens!
