Karin by charcoalfeather Karin by charcoalfeather
Gift for the wonderful Gawarin, who gave me a subscription! :hug: This is his OC, Karin. You can see more of her here. She is a sorceress.

Happy holidays! It probably isn't Christmas anymore in your time zone, though. Ah, well :D

I was inspired by this stock: Spring 4 by :iconkuoma-stock:.

Beautiful, what a lovely gift! I especially like her face (and pink cheeks) and her hands which are great.

Thanks so much for the great comment! Yes, finally, my hands are getting better. Previously, I usually didn't know what the hell was happening with my hands and tried to hide them whenever possible, lol!

Yeah, I think I finally "got" how to do blond hair. Don't make it primarily yellow, use a lot of browns and oranges for the darker parts, and use white or very light orange for the highlights/stray strands.

I'm glad my digital works have that traditional feel. It must be a leftover from the past, when I couldn't make digital pictures at all (also I started out drawing by using traditional media).

Welcome ^.^
Lol yes, my friend is in the hand-hiding stage and she's actually getting really good at subtly hiding the hands. It must be an art. XD

Amen to that! It looks so horrible when you try to do a yellow base. >_> I think thank Jaegor's blond highlights for teaching me how to blonde.

Ah, I see. It's definitely really unique :la: And it's fitting for your subjects, too. I think Basmachi wouldn't look quite as serious if it had the purely digital look.

Haha, just draw huge sleeves or make their clothes have a lot of pockets. That way, you'll have an excuse to hide their hands at all times.

The yellow base for blond hair always makes the picture look more cartoony than it actually is. xD

:nod: That's a good point. I think the grungy textures that my pencil lines give my pictures make Basmachi look more "historical" as well.

I do that too sometimes. Mostly with cape/capelets to hide the shoulders. Of course, you also have to work within the limits of the character and the setting.

I know right >_>

Yep, definitely! And I think they also kinda help give it that old photograph look, as well. :)

Simple poses or just headshots can make the drawing process so much quicker. So when you see me post tons of headshots and poses where you can't see their arms, you'll know that I'm too busy/tired to make a more intricate pose.

Aha, way easier. I drop so many projects after drawing the head ...

Hi, thanks for your comment and interest.

However, I don't do commissions in general. I only do gifts for close friends or maybe art trades (however I am not currently doing any but may change my mind in the future).

:hug: No problem at all! I'm SO glad you liked this! I was worried that I was not going to be able to do Karin justice--I'm very glad you think she looks exactly the way she should look like! I really had fun with this picture, especially with the flowers and the background, so I'm very happy, once again, that you like my little gift! :heart: Karin is lovely indeed!
