More unfinished things. Eris, greek goddess of Strife and Discord, depicted from the story where she drops a golden apple into a wedding feast the gods are holding. The apple is marked with ‘to the fairest’ which leads to a argument between Hera, Athena and Aphrodite and long story short, the Trojan wars happen.
All because Eris didn’t get invited to the wedding party.
I couldn’t really find any actual depictions of her aside from a pottery painting, but I liked the wings and (what I assumed was) birdfeet so I rolled with it. Folds, wings, and lightmood I haven’t painted before. Aw yes.
Thumbnailed this… yesterday, didn’t have anything else to do so I sat and sketched on it today.
It’s inspired by the codex entry on the Vestments of Sacrifice from Dragon Age 2.
Now if only I knew how the Starkhaven architecture looks like. The only concept art attributed to it in World of Thedas looks vaguely mediterranean in style, with ‘lots of marble’ noted.
Pfft, just want to stay at home and paint in peace, the constant bustling down at the activity center tires me out so much/brings me out of my work when people keep running in and out, talk loudly and I really really really want to finish this painting but the Mac I work at can’t seem to handle the size of it. -_-
Smilefortheflowers & Storyhoard, thank you for your responses, I really appreciate that you took the time. :) Money is always a issue, one I did assume was the biggest reason (Well that and my horrendous marketing of myself). Of course I’ll keep them open though, I was just mulling over this while driving home from my unemployment activity thingy today and figured it was worth a shot to ask.
Smearedblack, thank you most kindly for the reblogs!
Just curious, regarding my commissions, are people just not interested or is it my prices?
I mean, I know I don’t have the biggest following compared to other artists, I wouldn’t even hit 700 in total if combining both my dA and tumblr followers, so I wasn’t exactly expecting huge wave of people, but after +6 months of no takers I’m kinda curious.
There will come a day when I post something finished.
But today is not that day.
WIP - Freyr
OH MAN, I opened this up after doing all of the colouring down at the activity centre and everything was all icky grey, muddy, brown-green shades. Think I’ll try to avoid doing any major coloring there. … either that or my monitor is horrible. I dunno, feels like my art always looks really dark and oversaturated on other monitors.
… I’ve never painted a boar before.
Sometimes, dear followers, I’m very easily amused, and very literal minded. (Read: I’m always easily amused, and literal minded 90% of the time)
Hey, works great as placeholder!
Moments when I wonder if the reason I made up the part about mages having seals tattooed onto their arms and back to help channel the arcane energies and not lose control and turn monstrous was
‘need drawback for magic users’
‘need excuse to draw people shirtless or in fancy sleeveless/backless clothing’.
Another still life. Think I’m starting to get a tiny bit faster with these compared to back in December.
Kinda rough still life, was painting from the light that came in through the window but the sun is setting so I’ll just call it.
I’ve started keeping a sketchbook over at Crimson Daggers and got some feedback from others that I need to watch my materials, kinda end up with the same edges on everything so that was my main goal with this, but I think I’ll try again with more varied object shapes,
