Miro and Vincent by ms-laika Miro and Vincent by ms-laika
This picture started out at a sketch of princess Miro's hair (when she was still a teenager).
I haven't drawn anything - except for the birthday chibi for Reiyaa - in so many months, so I am pretty happy to see that I haven't forgotten how to do it.

approx 7 hours of studying slacking off/doodling/inking/shading/colouring/highlighting

this was done almost entirely with traditional media. there were some minor changes (colour balancing mostly, to try and regain what the scanner ate) done in PS

I really hope you like it! Prepare to see more pictures in this style in the future. Also I will be taking commissions again, after I finish the three chibi requests and my art trade.

I love what you've done here. The details, color and lighting are wonderful. There's a sence of antiquity about these portraits.

Vision: You certainly seemed to have a strong vision in mind for this peice. Everything seems in its place and you've captured the esence of these characters. A hint of their personality.

Originality: I'd say these are quite original. The way you do the hair is wonderful, full of character and individual style that sets them apart from other works of a similar style. Also the facial structures and shading, in contrast with the sharp lines of the rest of their designs, presents a softer feel giving them added depth and life.

Technique: As above, excellent technique. Original and well thought out.

Impact: As protraits go the impact is solid. I gave you 3 stars simply because we see only their heads but in that I think its a beautiful style that grabs ones attention immediatly and forces one to stay and examine the details.

Well done.

What you've done here is yet another interesting piece. The second figures clothing has a somewhat Victorian-esque feel to it. It kind of reminds me of Victor Van Dort of Corpse Bride in a way. The line work and shading is good, but I can't seem to feel the same intensity that I felt with one of your other pieces that I critiqued. While all of the details don't look bad, I still feel as though you could've added in a few more things to this piece to make it a bit better. A body on the first figure could've made it look a bit better.

Ooooh, very interesting hair! I especially love the male figure's hair, how it's asymmetrical and has that long curl trailing down on the side. I also like how you gave him a flower in his hair as well - why not! :) Nice color scheme too, I like the pink'ish background.

Something about this style seems nostalgic...not sure what it is though. ^w^

The way you have drawn the hair is really beautiful; I like the addition of white and the detail in the locks, it really adds to the hairstyles. The only thing I would say is I would suggest adding more white on their faces as I personally think it a bit of focus is drawn away from the face and to the hair - particularly on Miro. It is such a gorgeous style though :heart:

I love the headpiece design and the detail within the hair itself. I thought it was done digitally, good job! :XD:

Both have a victorian look, though the right one looks like she's riding the dragon.
