Dum Vita Est, Spes Est by temiel Dum Vita Est, Spes Est by temiel
"While there's life, there's hope." -Cicero

Upon their parting at Skullport, Rian gifted Farael with a ring that was a sister to one she had made for herself, each with a stone that glowed as long as its sister ring's wearer lived. Inside the band of each ring was inscribed that saying, as an affirmation that one day they'd be together again.

An excuse to do another not!watercolor. Going for sort of an art nouveau palette again. Pointless sentimentality whee!! :D

Aw, thank you!! :love: This is an ultra-old one (at least, by my standards... I did it when, like... last fall? :O), so I'm glad you think it still holds up. :heart:

I like how you put the girl in pants--I thought that was an interesting choice, especially for a couple scene.

I love the hair for both of them :)

Aw, thank you! I'm glad you like it. :heart: My ladies wear pants a lot... it's hard to go around kicking butt in a dress. ;) (Although ironically, this particular girl is one of the most likely of any of my characters to wear a dress. :XD:)

The more I learn about these two and their story, the more I love them. :) This is beautiful. I'm loving the nouveau influence here!

AHHH THANK YOU! :D They're absolutely my favorite couple to draw. :D

And yeah, that nouveau thing... it was a rather short-lived phase in the middle of this year, but I did like it, and maybe once I stop getting distracted by opaque digital painting I'll go back there. ;)

^___^ Thank you! I really loved doing that soft pastel-y color in this one. This actually started out as just a little doodle to waste time at work, but I ended up really liking it, so it got star treatment. :heart:

I really do get an Art Nouvaeu feel to it. The thick outline helps with that.

Oh, great! That's totally what I was going for. Because here on dA, you can't escape the bazillions of fantasy artists doing art nouveau-styled stuff... ;)

Oh man, they look so awesome here! The colors are beautiful, subdued like that. *w* Her hair is gorgeous. (And I've totally found out that drawing curly hair is a challenge for me, so I definitely admire your skills for it. lol) *snags as another reference* They're such a lovely couple~

This is stunning! I adore the characters and the colors you used are so soft and beautiful yet vivid and they stand out! The background just ties everything together perfectly.

Thank you! I was really pleased with the color on this, though I AGONIZED over the background. I tried about four or five different texture/color combos before I hit on this one, but I think it was worth the many different stabs at it :)
