Default S'lin Dragonrider

Here is S'lin and Nirilith, I was very happy to have met them and to draw a portrait of them both.






This is our Platinum, and it was my pleasure to do a portrait for her, I hope that you all enjoy it.

OMG, I was just at the "Let's See Ya" thread at NKT and happened to see Plat's pic there--this is just a perfect likeness!

You do hair so well. Way back in high-school art, hair in color drove me nuts, but yours looks so real!

Another wonderful portrait, Maelin! I know that Platinum is thrilled without even reading her posts. The color used in the portraits is just fabulous! I can't wait for the next one to be posted. Tho I'll spend lots of time revisiting this and the other portraits in the Gallery!

Anareth, I am glad that you finally saw Platinum's portrait. I am so

happy that I managed to get a good likeness of her. She really seems to like

it.

As for hair, Thank you, I do the best I can with the limited palate from

colored pencils. It sometimes can be a touch limiting in the small sizes that

the portrarits are in, to get an exact match but so far no complaints. I

hope that you like your portrait as well as Plat, likes hers.

P.S. You never sent me a picture with you and a

horse!?!

That's a very nice picture. I think you've done a nice job of depth perception with the dragon in the background.
And yes, I too think that you do a great job with hair.
I also like the calm feeling you get from looking at the sleeping dragon. Although, I actually get the feeling that Nirilith isn't really sleeping, but catnapping ei.e. just pretending to be asleep while listening in on us talking about how beautiful the portrait is.

Nef, you could be right about that, you know Dragons do a lot of napping. Besides you know how playfull greens are !!!!

Oooh, I agree Nef! The pose does look like a semi-wakeful position, rather than an all-out relaxed one which would have the head extended outwards and flat.

It was one of the links that was 'too small' (of the face.) I think it was http://www.geocities.com/tiepilot.geo/horse.jpg Me looking very chalky, as always. I have one picture of me somewhere where the flash washed me out so much all you can see are my eyes!

I'm liking having the gallery here--makes it easy to look at all the portraits together.

Anareth, that is a nice picture, and the horse is very beautiful . For the portraits, I need a more close up photo, and that you already sent, thank you.
