elantra: Kaylin Neya and Lord Nightshade by MathiaArkoniel elantra: Kaylin Neya and Lord Nightshade by MathiaArkoniel
Chronicles of Elantra relative-speed painting.
This is a portrait of Lord Kaylin, and Lord Nightshade. Though the dragons are my favorite characters in this series, and I kinda hope Kaylin will get together with a Dragon; Lord Nightshade is a close second on my list of Favorites. :D

Amikor a Tündérkrónikákhoz kapcsolódó képeken keresztül megtaláltam a műveit, rögtön megtetszett a többi képe is, főleg az Elantra krónikáiról szólók. Csodálatosan szépek! Ez a hangulat, ami átlengi őket... Gratulálok! :)
A képek hatására nekikezdtem a sorozat első részének. Köszönöm, hogy kedvet csinált hozzá. Nightshade karaktere nagyon bejön. Love

Lol. I am very glad to hear that through my art I could bring the joy of the Elantra books to you. It is really a lovely story, and I wish it would be far more popular than it currently is, for the author sure deserves it. She writes so many wonderful and diverse characters! Hope you enjoy the novels. :) Thanks a lot for your wonderful compliment. :)

I love this, I love you! It drives me crazy that all the cover art for the series NEVER has Kaylin's tattoo! Nightshade is damn nice too, which is a considerable challenge since the Barrani are described as having long, dark hair and being perfect or near perfect. Well, that's a totally different image for every person then. But you have depicted him in a way that doesn't make me want to pick it apart and grump, which is a first! And his hair looks very soft too, sigh.

the guy in the back looks like laguna, it's probably the brown hair and blue shirt.

anyway for a speed paint this is awesome, doesn't look like it was rushed [speed paint = fast drawing]. they look content here, gives a peaceful feeling.

Oooh, sorry! I seem to have mislabeled it then. By "Speed painting" I understand something that I finished fast. I finished this in 4 hours, so I cataloged it as a speed painting. But if you say that Speed painting is something that looks rushed, than it's definitely mislabeled.

I am glad you like it though. Lol. Sorry about the Laguna resemblance. It wasn't intentional, but you are right, the color schemes do hint in that direction.

sorry, i really meant for a speed painting it is very well done, way better then i could ever do.

but i think that is a given i've only recently trying to get out of my 5 year artist's block.

but i've seen speed paintings that i think O_O that is a speed paint?! mainly because if i did a speed paint it would look bad, think the idea varies from artist to artist.

most of my art i can spend days on a single pic. but i'm the one that should be sorry, i didn't clarify what i meant.

Thank you ever so much for the wonderful compliment! I would also love to see them together...or failing that, Kaylin with the Emperor, or Diarmat. :D

I love what you did with Kaylin's tattoos. I can easily imagine it all over.
Not quite how I would imagine the nightshade symbol on her, but everything else is amazing.

As for the nightshade tattoo; please, if you have time, describe to me how you imagined it. I am always open to suggestions. :D

I did imagine it off to one side like you have got it and not directly below the eye. I had it smaller in my head, maybe a half inch. I just wouldn't think Nightshade would want to hide her face that much.
My impression was that it was kind of branded into her so I only imagine it as having an outline that glows.
There are several species of the plant too. The one in my head looked more like this link. <[link]> I have just always been a fan of when the petals curl backwards.

But seriously you did an amazing job with everything. Makes me want the next book in the series to come out. I'm glad that you are open to suggestions and hope you don't take any offense.

Thank you ever so much for detailing your view and giving me an example of the flower as well. WOW I never knew there actually WAS a plant called Nightshade. Lol. I like your idea much better, so from now on I'll be using the "Woody Nightshade" as reference for Kaylin's tattoo. Thanks so much. Thank you also for the wonderful compliment. I am always open to suggests, especially when people write them in such a nice tone. :)

Yes, Nightshade is a plant who's berries are quite poisonous to humans actually. I always found his name ironic.
Thanks for taking the time to take the suggestions into consideration. I'm surprised you answered actually. The good artists usually get their in-boxes flooded. Looking forward to what ever amazing piece you put out next.

As if! I love this series! It's honestly my favorite book series. Though I am voting for Kaylin and Severn. Great picture!

Lol. I also LOVE this series a lot, and all the characters in it. I would certainly pick Severn for myself if I'd be Kayling in RL, BUT in fantasy, I want the unattainable...like Lord Nightshade, or Lord Diarmat (another favorite of mine), or the best of all, The Emperor for Kaylin. :D

I agree with you that this series is waaay too under-appreciated and under-represented. But this is the way of life, sadly.
