Your works are so vibrant. I absolutely love your style. And your picturing of Justice here is very interesting, as you said, only a hint of his presence. Nicely done.

Aaw, thank you. I was very rushed when making this image. It was for a contest. I'm not super-happy with the composition, but I still love the colours! :D

Oh Anders... He totally charmed me in DA II. I was very sorry for him, when he could do nothing about Justice. My Hawke (Net) never hesitated to help his love. They had very hard adventure, but I hope they can finally "practice" their magic in peace, if you know what I mean Woohooooo! 

Your atworks impressed me one next time. I can see that Anders is sad, he can't stop thinking about his fate.

Imma watch you, if you don't mind. Wish you more arts like this one! :la:

I wish they could! I loved Awakening Anders but DA2 'jawdrop' betrayal I could not even finish that game. He's a great character though and honored for the watch! :D

One thing is certain, when someone looks at a piece of art and is suddenly sure about who the author is, it's because the style is unmistakable and said author is a great artist. When I see your works in a Group folder I always exclaim "D'oh, olivegbg!" even before I read your name below :aww:

The colors! They are so amazing, so vibrant, so olivegbg!!! :la:

That took two years and a heavy dept (which I have just finished paying off) and I still use tutorials. Learning is a constant process.

I like the darkness and the way bright colours are hinted at. The way you have painted his robes makes me think of a stained glass window. I'm overjoyed that this is the Awakening Anders, the other version just didn't do it for me. He's interesting and conflicted but agree with Carver "I don't hate you because you're a mage, I hate you because you won't shut up about it."

Dare I suggest the touches of Justice on his face are made a bit brighter? Right now they almost look like slightly oddly coloured shadows.

Love the smoke wreathed around his hand and the determined look on his face.

'hinted at'? my dear Gaspode he's a cross between a peacock and a Brazilian carnival queen. You might be right about Justice, I have a layer with stronger lines but they kind of made his eye disappear and I don't want to make it blue. Maybe there's a middle ground somewhere...

:icongaspode5:
Gaspode5 Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2014
Sounds like Anders. ;) Sorry. What I meant is the image is so dark that some of the colour kind of appears out of the shadows. I like that.

I think with Justice it really is everything or nothing. Perhaps you could make the lines brighter but fewer.

I like the eye though. To strong and it might get lost.

I think the lines would work if they don't cross the front of his face but are scattered down the sides, more framing the face, maybe even horizontal instead of vertical.

Ah yes, one of the filters was very colorful so I decided to augment that. I think Anders would approve :D

The colors partly derive from the texture. He looked so good in them I decided to draw it further. :D
