The Commodore has no patience for this bullshit. :fork:

This was one of the rare times that my drawing actually reflected my emotional state at the time I drew it. Nothing major, just general irritation with my day job. Therapy! :D

Pencil and PS. Texture by `Princess-of-Shadows.

Hahaha, I totally get you. Drawing something reflecting your emotional state is truly therapeutic. And I like the style of this. Sketchy. Looks beautiful!

I LOVE emotionally inspired art (lol mine is all so emo and angry that I don't ever upload it ;A; ) and I love seeing this side of Farael :love:. That pose is just AWESOME, like he's going to pounce *V*

MMMPH YESSSS... I love Farael when he's being all fiery and asskicking. :heart: I'm really glad you like the pose! More "action-y" stuff (not that this is exactly an action pose, but you know...) is usually pretty hard for me, so YAY! :dance: Thanks a lot for the fave. :love:

really, this is great work my dear. Whenever you put emotion into your work, it really makes it pop you know? out of all of this, i have to say his face and the curve of his body are my favorite. You made him appear so powerful, especially with the spacing of his arms? oh yeah, he looks like hes gonna flip someone.

Lovely work m'dear <3

Oh, thanks so much!! :heart: Yeah, I figured it was about time I drew Farael looking like he's about to kick some serious ass. He can't be perfectly placid ALL the time, after all! ;) I really do hope to do a Farael-in-action picture sometime soon, because he's got a really badass lightning sword that I rarely ever draw and which would look AWESOME in picture form... :meow:

Its always fun to draw something a little out of what you are used to, and in your case, gawd. You can draw some awesome rage m'dear :heart:

Aw, thank you!! :D I've always thought I wasn't too good at real RAGE, you know? It's a hard emotion to convey without making your people look really ugly and cartoony. :3

Also, as a side note, it's good to see you back! :D Have you been taking a dA break?

Yes actually, I've been staying away mostly because i got a nasty compy virus that decided to eat all my PSD files @_@ So all the stuff i was working on decided to up and kick the bucket. Also I think my styles changing a bit @_@, so i've been messing with that more then commenting or talking ^^() but now i am bawk.

Yeah, rage is ONE of those emotions thats very hard to get down. its because of those subtle changes in the face that end up taking place. Its very hard to capture without emphasizing it and making it seem.. over the top?

ARGH NO!! I'm sorry, man, that's AWFUL. If I lost all my PSDs, I'd LOSE MY MIND. :onfire: I'm glad you've been able to use it as an excuse to mess around with a new style, though. Still... ARGH!! :frustrated:

I really like the movement this picture has thanks to the sketch lines that you left in there. The wrinkles in his shirt~~~ <.< It's starting to sound like I have a real thing for wrinkles in clothes. lol who knew.
Great work on his facial expression, the bright orange eye really helps bring my attention right there. n.n
Letting it out artistically really is the best way to let go of steam.

C: Oh wrinkles. ;) Fear not, I love them too! (It's why I draw so damn many... XD) I'm glad you like it!! :heart:

Therapeutically speaking, I'm almost never one to "get the emotions out on paper"; normally I use art to distract myself if I'm feeling less-than-awesome, but occasionally you just can't beat a good drawn rant. When I was in college I did a TON of little ranty comics about how much I hated my classes... XD Some of those were really kind of fun, actually.

Hmm. I like the shadowy effect of his wings. I can kind of imagine them going upwards and then forwards in a wing-movement translation of irritation (or maybe dominance :hmm:)

Conversely to usual, in this one, I very much like the lines :) The sheer amount of them doesn't seem out of place, but lend him a stronger movement, so the whole picture seems sort of tensed and energetic.

I LOVE imagining the involuntary movements his wings make when he's agitated.

...Yeeaaaaaaah, I think too much about this. :XD:

Glad you like the lines! I'm not usually this loose about them, but I was feeling grouchy and careless. :giggle

:iconalois-noette:
Alois-Noette Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2010
But they're good grouchy-and-careless lines! :D

And...it's odd, but that sort of imagining is weirdly automatic. Like imagining things as movies. I had an involuntary, 'Whooooa, his wings will move that way!'

Therapy pictures = good! Even if you hadn't said you were irritated, I think I could have told from the flurry of pencil strokes ;)

YES, this is the moderately-successful grumpy drawing!! XD Very helpful, that. ;) Everyone's been telling me the irritation is pretty evident from the ANGRY STROKES... :giggle:

My favorite part has gotta be that lighting and those colors! Really cool! And of course, the gestural, sketchy quality of the lines is great at evoking that emotion and movement~ Haha, gotta love angry Farael. xD lol

I'm really surprised by how well this one's going over, I just sketched it all crappy in, like, 15 minutes on my lunch break yesterday! :rofl: I'm really glad you like it, though. I think the painting practices I've been doing have really been helping me with my lighting! :D

Thank you! :) I was saying to someone earlier that normally when I'm upset or mad I draw something lovey or sexy and it makes me feel better, but this one just needed to be what it was. And it definitely did help. ;)

I love this, though. His eyes...just wow. Amazing work :]

Oh, thanks! :D Yeah, I almost NEVER do it... honestly, there's very little connection between my mental state and what I want to draw most of the time. Usually if I'm feeling down or grumpy I draw something sexy and it makes me feel better, I almost never have my characters commiserate with me. ;) This time, though... I think I needed it. :D Glad you like it! I was really pleased with the eyes. :heart:

Gngnhn angry Farael <3 This looks great, and I agree that the quick sketch lines really, really work with this. It almost adds to the aggession and the quick urgency, certainly gives his clothes a lot of movement, too. I wouldn't like to be on the other end of this, that's for sure!

HRNNRRRRN YESS. I sketched this when I was pissed off on my lunch break but finished it with you in mind when I got home. :heart: I'm so glad you like it... I figured it was about time I drew him REALLY mad, because he certainly can't be Perfectly Composed and Contained aaaaaall the time. :dance:
