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.

5 out of 5 deviants thought this was fair.

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.
