Runescar by tarkheki Runescar by tarkheki
Commission for client.

I get some wild bad character commissions from time to time that deal with bad conceptualized charterers with no rational concept as to why they ARE... but this client of mine is a repeat return, who's characters are ALWAYS so well scripted that cannot find anything but inspiration when working on them!

I saw Runescar in a batch of my client'd refs when we were down at AC... and I knew on the SPOT how I wanted to draw this out. The Scars subside and prevent him from casting his own magic... so I wanted to show the conflict- personal, emotional, metaphorically, and physical- through the clash of Red-blue complimentary color scheme.

Just a head's up- there are many submissions of art that I do not get around to updating here on DA. For those who want to stay in touch with things happening and more posts, head on over to my website: www.bernicegordon.com

Subtle intensity, as oxymoronish as that sounds, that's what I think when I see this. The minimalist lighting is great, makes it feel like there's a story behind the image rather than just being a simple portrait as most commissions are.

I go nuts for interesting lighting, but I'm usually too lazy to try it myself XP

It's actually not- simple Tauren character or fursona from someone on FA. :)
