August - for Syrrhaal by niji707 August - for Syrrhaal by niji707
:P Once upon a time... :P *Syrrhaal won the second place in the "A Familiar Affair" contest, as you can read here.
I promised a character portrait pencil sketch for the second place of the contest, and I've been asked to draw his OC August.

A very interesting and fascinating character... I was a bit afrait to portrait him!!

He is supposed to be an angel, even if I didn't explicity draw wings... ok, I confess I originally thought to draw a feather falling down but then I forgot ░___░ (<- realizing it in this very moment...). Hope it's ok anyway... ^^;

Actually I did it some months ago, but I just managed to get a good scan! Even so, I had to retouch some lights in Painter. -___- it's so difficult to make it looks like my original...


Watercolour, graphite and white contÚ on my actual favourite paper (Fabriano Artistico 100% cotone satinato liscio).

OMG, this looks so lovely! :heart: As always, you give your faces such lovely elegant features. He's AWFULLY hot. :drool: The medium is so wonderfully understated, too... great choice with the minimal colors. Awesome stuff! :D

wow, thank you!! :heart: I'm really happy about your comment! :wow:
I don't feel like I give my faces elegant features, I'm really happy that this is your opinion, though!
I love those techniques that make me "stop" quite soon, leaving the drawing still fresh :)

Elegante e professionale. Brava.
Personalmente avrei ammorbidito un pochino gli angoli della bocca ed il collo lo avrei fatto un filino pi¨ snello, ma sono proprio minuzie e/o gusto personale.
Ho ribaltato l'immagine specularmente ed ho constatato che Ŕ pure simmetrica. Ben fatto! ^_-

Iiiih! No, io non l'ho mai ribaltato.... Pauraaaaa! :XD:
La bocca tendo a farla sempre un po' netta... Ma il collo non convince molto neppure me!
Sono contenta che ti piaccia! Grazie! :love:

Oh wow you did such amazing work especially with his expression!
I love your shades it surely gives something extra to the atmosphere and I totally love the way you captured his innocence here )

I don't mind the missing feathers as with the pose/shades and expression you still could give back his personality greatly on a way that I could recognize him from many :aww:
Thank you very much for this I absolutely love it! )

It's always a bit frightening to work on someone else's character! :P
