If the world was perfect... by iara-art If the world was perfect... by iara-art
...we should be together.

Image of my roleplay characters, Arya and Kalan, inspired by a conversation they had. They have a complicated relationship.

And white hair FTW!
Used photo as reference.

I have been experimenting with painting techniques to see if I can paint faster, and it is working so far :)

Whoa, the shading of their skin is beautiful <3

I must admit, for me it takes away from the picture that she's looking at the "camera". It makes it look like less of a tender moment, and more like posing (or, looking for an escape route). It's kind of a shame, considering how perfectly he conveys the tenderness/love.

Complexity, consider that even if she is attracted to the, Drow, she is seeking that escape, as you say...

Yeah, I saw that look in the sketch you've made. Personally, I think it would be conveyed better if she looked away from both drow and camera (which is what gives the "posing" feel), but that's just IMHO :)

If there is a camera at all? uh.. yeah.. lol

Pretend there isn't one, and the exit is in her line of sight. ;P

I found it most natural, if a Drow is being tender towards you, you kinda gotta ask why?

I like the eyes most of all in Irene's work, so a deep look into one eye is a bonus, but I understood your point.

Profile wouldn't detract from the image as much, but as it is, and considering the time spent on it, this was pure talent and awesomeness.

Very nice, great work with the hands! However, the scar on her back maybe should have a slight bit pink in it. It kind of looks like a very deep crack. everything else though is awesome :D
