Default Master Healer Eliara and Twitchit

This is Master Healer Eliara and her Green Firelizard Twithcit, working in her still room at North Ranges.






This is our MoM member Anareth, her choices for her Portrait I found very interesting to draw. I hope that I have drawn what a stillroom looks like for her and all of you...if not I gave it as good a try as I know how at this time. I hope that you all enjoy it...Maelin...I'M BACK !!!.... YEAH

Lovely!

Words fail me. You know what I noticed first about the portrait - her lips. I've seen pics of Jennifer, and never realized what nice lips she has.

I love the detail in the back - all tha jars and herbs and such.

A very nice portrait and a unique background. Back with a vengeance eh, with such an intricate background The perspective is bothering me a little but the endproduct is nice! I especially like the rolled-up sleeves sign of a hard working healer!

Just one question... short hair? Or is that braid hanging down on her back?

Hans, Her hair is braided and pined up on her head(as she asked for) the perspective though was really tricky while trying to show all the things I was wanting to put in the drawing...sorry you are finding it bothersome. I am glad that you thought the drawing was nice though.

@ Shalyn, Jennifer does have a very lovely face and her lips are indeed very nicely shaped. Thank you for the compliments.

@ Jax, I am so glad that you liked it so much....Thank You very much.

@ Tresa, Thank you for the compliments...I loved the green and how it came out too.

*blinks* I should be so thin!

OMG, Maelin, I love the background! The amount of detail is just staggering. And Twichit's tail wrapped down the arm...thank you so much! (Now, Cheryl, about icon-sized versions....?) It reminds me a tad of Brekke's portrait in the PoP, without the scared-rabbit look.

Hey, Shalyn--it must be a good day and she must be talking to Alavid--otherwise when would Eliara be smiling?

And yes, Hans, I asked for her hair up-exactly like that, actually, though I wasn't that specific (Maelin the Mind-Reader?) I have long hair, as does my RPG alter ego, but IRL I can't pin it up that often without massive amounts of bobby pins, while Eliara, working with medicines and with the blood and guts, would almost always have hers up off her face and neck. And the perspective's a tad off, but given Maelin was working from a picture taken at a strange angle (a studio shot where I'm actually on the studio floor looking up at the camera with very difuse lighting) it all melds together very nicely!

Oh, how Anareth must be loving this!
There is so much detail in this work of art! It's not just a portrait. All of the herbs and measuring spoons are wonderful to see. I love the glass jars that you can see the contents thru. Aw, heck, I love it all!
Great job Maelin!

Ahhh - That's why I wouldn't have recognized her. Usually when any of my characters are talking to Eliara, she has a pained look on her face. (i.e. "so who's the father?")*

Now - is my computer playing tricks on me, or when I first posted was the picture bigger? Because to see the whole thing, I had to do a lot of scrolling. Now I don't.







*My goldrider was having major emotional issues, and Eliara, after some well-placed questions, discovered my character is pregnant. Prompting the above question, since she's recently 'slept' with three different men. Poor Eliara.

It was. If you look at the bottom of Maelin's post you'll see the small editing note.

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE LOVELY COMPLIMENTS

I had to do a lot of research on this portrait. Eliara being a healer and working in her stillroom a lot had me going all over the internet looking for things that I could use for reference for the drawing. I know that the perspective is silghtly off but I didn't know how else to get it all in and have it look at least decent....sorry about that.

@ Hans, I did put something special in Anareth's portrait just for you...the scale that she is using is a close copy of an old Dutch apothecary's scale that I found. I wasn't to sure if it would look out of place...but as it worked out I'm glad I put it in.

I am so glad that all of you are enjoying all of the little things that I put in the stillroom...I loved seeing my imaginary stillroom come to life so to speak...I hope it looks something like you all had in your imaginations.

I really love the vivid colors in this one. Some of the older drawings look almost drab by comparison. Not that I'm complaining, I'm very happy with mine. I just meant that there's a real difference here. I wonder what the next drawing is going to look like.

Sometimes I am asked for certain things to be put in the drawing, sometimes they only want themselves in the portraits.
The color pencils that I use have a limit of colors that can be used, or made from several differnt colors and still show up on the computer screen. Sometimes the colors that the members have asked for have been very limiting, basicly one or two colors, so I use as many of those shades as I can. I do try to have the portraits as colorfull as they can be and still be what the member was wanting, so that they show up on the screen well.
I am so glad that you have always enjoyed the portraits, and I was very pleased to do your for you...especially that it was so different from the others that I had done at the time.
As far as the next portrait is concerned you will just have to wait until I put it up ...which should be just before the McCaffrey Quest. A little surprise before we all go to work answering all those questions...

Maelin, do you have more than one "on the go" at the same time?
I could imagine drawing is like writing - you have a spurt of creativity then let it sit for a bit and just look at it - well that's what the group I work for creating theatrical costumes like to do.

What I really like about the portraits is that each is as individual as the person they portray, although I have to admit I really like the double of Kalina & Spiff. There's not a single one that I wouldn't be honored to have on my wall. Keep up the fantastic work!

@ Lily, I like to draw on just one at a time at the my desk, but I like to have the photos and information for the next few that are coming up ahead of time so that when I am not actually drawing, I can find any research materials I need ahead of time. That way I can mentaly be working on them ahead of time while I am drawing on the curent one. That is why I like to have everything ahead of time...I never know when I am going to be ready to work on the next one. I like to have a few finished ones ahead of being put up...that way I don't feel I have to rush to have one to put up for the membership to see.
OH by the way!!! I will be putting your portrait up this next week before the McCaffrey Quest...

@ Granath,Thank you for that very lovely compliment. I also have a soft spot fot the Spiff and Kalina one...but I am a hopless romantic at heart. I do like all of the portraits I have done so far...because in doing them I have gotten to know the person behind the member name, better than I think I could have other wise with just the normal posting. In getting to know each member a little, I think I have been able to put some part of them into the portraits that makes them as different as they are in real life...or at least I hope I have been able to. For me it has brought the site more to life, and helps me to feel like I am talking to friends ...not like strangers on most sites seem to be.
