ice mage by len-yan ice mage by len-yan
finally, my last diploma piece.

i've been getting tired of drawing young people all the time and i thought it would be a great opportunity to get some practice at mature looking characters. it took a while to get this one to look alright (though i had more problems with the body than with the face) but it was a very enjoyable experience.

Almost perfect character (and excellent drawing and colors of course), except for those out of context modern-looking boots (mainly the thick soles)...

I was thinking the same thing. An Ice Mage with a staff that looks like a spinal cord and ribs... hmm..
Still some amazing artwork though

:3 I love that you experimented with this. A good addition to older characters is making more defined hands, like making veins and knuckles more pronounced, as well as cheek bones, the nose, and smile/frown wrinkles. Good work.

He's fantastic! The face especially is nice, it's regal and he looks like he's an experienced mage; not some jumped up young prodigy. I also like how the clothing looks like a ward against the chill of his own magic.

O... nie zauważyłam, że z Polski.

Nieważne, strasznie podoba mi się ten koncept na kostur. Interesująco się dopełnia z resztą ubioru.
Widzę, że tworzysz to do dyplomu... jeśli można wiedzieć na jakiej uczelni?
