Commission: Dwenda 2 by temiel Commission: Dwenda 2 by temiel
Commission for :icondwenda:, one of my favorite people ever, of her GORGEOUS boy First Lord Hark Luisha from her novels-in-progress, the Young Sun Legacy. This was SO. MUCH. FUN. To do. Seriously. She commissioned me at like 11 this morning and I've been working all day on it because Hark is just such a joy to draw. He has the best skin tone ever. =Dwenda wanted him "posing for an official statue", and gave me some good references of classical sculptures, so I had an excuse to do a good contrapposto stance, which I usually have a lot of trouble with.

Hark and Young Sun Legacy =Dwenda. Textures are from CGTextures.com.

Thank you! :heart: I LOVED doing this skin tone, it's so great. Medium-dark skin is awesome because it's light enough that you don't lose the lines for the features, but it's dark enough that highlights show up REALLY well.

OH LA LA WHAT A SITE TO SEE :iconleleleplz:

He's GORGEOUS! I really love the tones you chose for this one, so warm, specially because of his clothes!

Red + Yello FTW!

And I love your male anatomy <3 it's so slim, a little delicate, but still has the beef that I like! >D

Amazing *_*

And sorry for my late comments =S I've been so busy these days, but I didn't forget about you! :hug: <3

OH MY GOD. Can I steal him and marry him? All that drapery...seems so nonexistent. Bless you and your anatomy skills

You made his skin tone gorgeous. I like the soft shading. And it goes with all the red ^^ and his hair. LOOOOOVE :love:

Alas, I believe the man is taken. (:shakefist:) I certainly wouldn't mind if he let that drapery drop... :iconpervyplz:

His skin tone was UNGODLY fun to color. Almost all my characters are so pasty in comparison, so it was awesome to play with this. :D

OoooOo... what a sight for sore eyes. I like the hands in this. Of course, everything else is gorgeous too. :D I think you've got the pose down nicely.

Looking at this piece makes me want to draw a surfer dude. I think it's his skin tone and those eyes.

Hark says HELLO right back! :XD: Glad you like the body, I had SO much fun coloring all that skin and musculature. :faint: His skin tone is the most fun to shade in the UNIVERSE. Normally I'm big on ultra-pale, but I can say that mid-tones like this are FAR more fun, because the highlights really stand out.

Thank you! :heart: Yeah, I was looking for just the right texture to put there and this one more than delivered. It's actually a decorative paper. :XD: And yes, I'm totally with you on the red drapery, it makes me quite a happy panda. I haven't drawn a guy wearing it in WAY too long, this one made me realize. :3

Beautiful! You really captured the "classical" feel :nod:

And I haven't actually seen anyone use the phrase "contrapposto" since my art class days (you know . . . in the dark ages? :XD:) Bravo! :clap:

temiel Featured By Owner May 6, 2010  Professional General Artist
:rofl: Oh contrapposto, how you stay lodged in my brain. :XD: I swear, I had at least one figure drawing and/or art history class where the teacher said that word SO MUCH I wanted to never hear it again after. XD

I'm really glad you like it, and that you think it looks classical enough. In spite of my SERIOUS love for (late)classical sculpture, I've actually never tried a pose like this in any meaningful way. :O
