's character Declan O’Dwyer.
A very serious, sophisticated, elegant and beautifull aristocrat. I had a lavish character description which is always very helpfull as I like to show a lot of a characters personality through the pose and face. It also makes it more difficult on the other hand because the commissioner presents a very clearly determent view of the character and I want to do that justice. It's a surprise every time what the commissioner will think of the work and I'm always a bit scared.
I loved working on his face and perfectionizing it. It became very stoic in the end but I think it suits him. A detail image to see his two different coloured eyes: [link]
I wasn't sure about the background at first so I changed it a couple of times. I also made his legs a little more musceled. He is a very slender person but he needed a little more substance there. Fun to talk about my working method for a change. How I always make a sketch and lineart and think about it, contemplating pose, composition, showing it to other to judge it. Then colour it and also change things in the process, then again show it to others to judge... that's the process a little.
And I guess I incorporated all the details (including the potions, can you find them?
