Sorry for the lack of updates on the portrait series. My parents are visiting from abroad to celebrate my apparent birthday ;) Will resume again next week!
- Leliana - by Anathematixs
- Leliana -
Finally painted the spymaster! :D
I was heavily inspired to paint her thanks to one of my Instagram followers who happens to cosplay and made an amazing one of Leliana!
You can check her out, if you like:
Also, in case anyone is curious, mine is: (I post preview shots and WIPs there as well!! Same goes for Twitter, with the same username)

- The Iron Bull - by Anathematixs
- The Iron Bull -
I have to admit that I struggled with this one,... hard. I really wanted to include him in the series, but getting him right was incredibly difficult.

I really liked the armor he was wearing in the cinematics, so I decided to include that awesome shoulder piece and have him carrying that hammer.
He did not end up as detailed as the other ones, perhaps, but I felt like he was done, so here is The Iron Bull (who could have called himself "The Iron Dragon", but did not think of that until Cole mentioned it... xD)
- Sera - by Anathematixs

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed painting her!
Even though she is not as "elf-y" as some of the other DA elves, she does have a few distinct elven facial features (apart from the obvious ears :P ). Those always throw me off a little. Good practice for when I get around to painting Solas :D

- Morrigan - by Anathematixs

This series of portraits would obviously be missing something if we did not include her...
Her necklace gave me quite the headache and took me forever, made worse by the fact that the method I used in the end was so simple, I almost hit myself on the head for not thinking of it earlier. (Make a rectangle, cut out the middle, duplicate 20 times, Filter>Distort>Polar Coordinates, cut off the top half, a little free transform and warp, add Bevel, paint over....done)

Oh, yes I did! I really just made a Frozen reference. Why? Because, kittens!

In other news: Since it really has been forever since I updated my journal: Have an update!
Not that I really have much interesting to say, it had just been a really long time since I posted anything to my journal. So, I am opening the comment section for comments and suggestions!
So, bring on your questions, thoughts, ponderings and wits and have some fun together! I promise I will try my best to answer everything :D

In serious updates: Ehhhh, I am still painting, just finished a series for the first time (of really good looking men... <3 lol) and am going to have some cool updates soon!

Aaaaaand there is currently a Kickstarter running for a project I illustrated; A card deck based around "The Wizard of Oz"!! Wanna have a look?
Go right here to this pretty link and let me know what you think. Heck, maybe even back the project? I would be very happy if you did.
Clicky here:…

Also, because I think this is worth a mention: Can we stop with the witch-hunting already? Yes, people do bad things and yes, some of them get away with it... But are they really hurting anyone aside from their own pride? If you think someone is stealing or plagiarizing, contact them via private message with a friendly note. Give them a chance to explain themselves. There really is no need to rally the masses and bully someone into oblivion over something so trivial.
My friend (with the most awesome first name ever) Suzanne Helmigh wrote a very brave, nice and clear journal on the subject, which you can read here: Witchhunts among artists.I was very reluctant on writing this journal, as I often just want to inspire and write uplifting things. This topic is a little less so.

:bulletblue: Witches!
The word 'Witchhunt' comes from a time were some women got accused for being witches because of their beauty or their way to modern way of living (being a single mother or non-christian in times where that was absolutely outrageous). Those women would get ridiculous tests to proof their humanity from which they ultimately would die (burning on the fire stake or getting drowned in a river.) The fact that they did not survive it would proof that they are human and not a witch. We all know that there are no immortal people.. so no woman had ever survived it. 
:bulletblue:  Artists!
Now when we talk about Artist Witchhunts it's pretty similar, an artist would get accused of using unorthodox methods or plagiarism. No one likes plagiarism and

And that is all I will say on the matter.

Now, go forth, share love and be awesome unicorns!
