Averial Drow : Raesha by Artoki Averial Drow : Raesha by Artoki
Drawn for Raesha, this is her character ... ummm...Raesha! Raesha is the resulting offspring of a Drow and an Averial elf, and yes her wings are supposed to look beat-up and disheveled. I loved the character description on this and had a lot of fun drawing it. I tried to get myself a new style with this one (points to the intentionally over sized hands and the purposefully drawn super skinny, about to snap, waist) and I think it works quite well, looks kinda videogame-ish. I was originally aiming for something a little bit 'Final Fantasy Tactics' in style, but as it progressed it developed away from the original concept and into what you now see. Lately I've been looking at a lot of HTK art, and I think he has influenced my colouring style and the style of the face in this one. I wanted the bg to look misty (not sure if I achieved that), the mist also explains why she's so shiney( heavy mist makes you damp^^). It's one of my fave pieces to date^^"

Artoki Hello, your pictures are really cool because of wolves. I merely wanted to ask whether you would make me a anime. If so I would look for then you give info and attitude.

This character reminds me of Zidane from Final Fantasy IX.

I love this!!! You're amazing, if I could draw I'd do something like this!
The background looks really dood to me, the wall nice and clear and then an alley-like-thing going misty so it doesn't take attention away from the rest of the pic. My opinion anyways :+fav:

No, seriously. It's great. I love the colors and shading. As for the character herself... well, her proportions aren't exactly natural, but it only adds to her charm - she looks like a little kid. A very well armed and agressive little kid ;)

Sweet. :+fav:

Videogame-ish is right, it looks cool over all, but the hands might be a midge too big because at first glance they look extreamly foreshortened.
