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.

Thank you ever so much! I am glad to hear you like my depiction of Kaylin's tattoos and Lord Nightshade. :D

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.

OMG this is... SO fabulous! I really want to see them together (though I, too, love the dragons). This pictures is so lovely - thank you!!

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
