Default Faye Weyrwoman of Pern

This is Faye a Weyrwoman of Pen, her Dragon "Seraath", and her Firelizard "Izzy". I meet them while on my journey and did there portriats. While I was doing her portrait, I realized that she reminded me of someone, perhaps you can figure out who???



.



This is our member Girlslick, it was my pleasure to do her portriat. I hope that you also enjoy it....Maelin

I do too. While the subject is a beautiful lady the eye is also drawn to the marvelous textures you made for the jacket, the fur collar and the sweater, wow.

Just when you think they can't get better... this one seems one of the most lifelike of them all! You expect her to start chuckling!

And thank you again, Maelin, for such a sumptuous portrait.

I love the working dragonrider look - it's a real compliment to be compared to no less a dignitary than Lessa herself!

And Seraath is, of course, just gorgeous.

I do have to admit to having a lot of fun with this one too. The amazing similarities to Lessa, as she is discribed in Anne's books was unbeliveable for me to see. I am so glad that everyone seems to be enjoying this one, like I did after it was all finished. Thank you so very much for all the lovely compliments.

well, I was going to say, fantastic detail on fabrics, as usual, but, I greatly admire your skin toning, Maelin, and dimples and muscles.
Another wonderful portrait

When you said she reminded you of someone I guess I wasn't reading properly! :blush2: I thought, when I looked at the picture that it reminded me a little of Scarlett Johansen

Jax, no not Scarlett J., Lessa is who she reminds me of. She looks just like what the books discribe Lessa, as looking, in my opinion.

I'm loving the color combination in this portrait. The dragon, firelizard and rider's clothes all seem to blend well together. (not that the colors of the others didn't! It's just that these colors just really relate to each other well) Hope I said this right! It's a compliment, honest, and not meant to detract from any other portrait!

How do you do the texture on the sweater? It looks like if I touched the portrait I'd feel the wool!

Becky, not to worry dear friend, I know what you are saying.... I know that you really do love these.

Some times the colors that a member has asked for goes together much better than other colors do. With this one all the colors just seemed to sing for me. When this happens it is very pleaseant for an artist, all that you have been working towards has come together the way you were hoping they would.........Thank you for your very nice compliments......they are kindly ment, and kindly taken !!

Anareth, Thank you very much for those wonderful compliments to my work. I work very hard a trying to get it to look like wool or fur or the leather........appearently I have suceeded in doing it for you to like it soooo much.
I look at each type of fabric, to decide what makes it look like what it is. Then you try different types of colors, and strokes to get the feeling that you are wanting, this is very hard to try and tell you........if you were here I could show you, but the next best thing is to tell you to get a book on textures, and study it, then practice, practice, practice !!!
