DA Awakening couple by Alteya DA Awakening couple by Alteya
Request from :icontaliesyn2010: - her character Helena and Nathaniel Howe from Dragon Age game.
Tried to combine chars with background - well not that good as I'd like it to be, but I believe it's another step, right?)
Mostly done in photoshop, as I had some problems with painter those days.
Hope you like it =)

I like their armor.
As a critique I would point out that his arrow is too short. It would be foreshortened like that if this bow were drawn. Otherwise, if it is simply nocked against his bowstring, is should extend well beyond his hand. An arrow for a large bow like that would be 30 or more inches.
For lighting I would suggest placing torches on the walls about head height on either side of them. Then you could make the background have more shadows, but the light from two sources would highlight/illuminate the characters better, making them stand out.

Yeah, I totally agree - a torch on the wall would be nice.
And those arrow and bow overall look out of place.

It's good to analyze some old pictures time to time.
Thanks!

Love the way you did the Warden's armor. The phoenix armor is one of my favourite mods :dance:

А можно полюбопытствовать - Вам больше по душе Натаниэль из Awakening или ДА2?
(я имею в виду чисто внешне, т.к. характер раскрывается только в "Пробуждении")

Здорово получилось. И герой, и героиня арта великолепны. Броня получилась замечательно, загляденье просто.
Нравится выражение лица девушки. Хитрое такое, сразу понятно, какой класс перед нами))
Нэт выглядит немного моложе себя в игре. Но это не в коем случае не недостаток, потому что по игре, кажется, вообще неизвестно сколько ему лет))

К слову, есть "люди без возраста", никогда не угадаешь, сколько им лет..)

Не за что)
Это да)Возможно, что это как раз случай Натаниэл. Хотя по игре у меня были ассоциации, что он ненамного старше героя (а они в большинстве случаев зеленые юнцы))

Lovely. Nathaniel was a good character and he seems so underused by Bioware. HOWE ABOUT SOME MORE NATHANIEL?! ;D

Actually, it seems they won't put him in the story again.. Or maybe another little quest, short dialogue and bye-bye)

I like the dead genlock. Also her armor is beautiful. Did she design it or did you come up with it?

Alteya Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2011
Oops, it's a shriek! Now as you mentioned genlock I see it really looks like that =) Heh..))))
Well, I was asked to depict certain outfit - it's a Phoenix armor. Check it out, there'r different types)

You're right it actually looks like a Shriek now that I look at it again. I forgot about those... I haven't played in a million years.

Угу, он выглядит моложе и несколько иначе по сравнению с оригиналом.. К слову, я не знаю, сколько ему по истории лет, когда мы его встречаем в "Пробуждении" =\
Reply
:icon7eule7:
7Eule7 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
я думаю, порядка 25. Хм...Хотя я не знаю, сколько было Эрлу Хоу...Но на всех артах, официальных, он не выглядит таким уж молодым.
Reply
:iconalteya:
Alteya Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2011
Согласна, по игре я бы сказала, что он немногим старше 25ти.
Начиная работу, хотела, чтоб персонаж выглядел "под стать" девушке.. а когда заканчивала, подумала, что выглядит он чуть ли не мальчишкой..) Но менять уже ничего не хотелось, хотя, возможно, и стоило бы.
Я уважаю работу других людей, в частности - дизайнеров Биоварей, и обычно стараюсь сохранить созданные ими образы. Но иногда получается и вот так :D

Да бог с ним - так уж оставь! Все равно хорошо.
Все равно хочется красивей или лучше, чем есть)
Когда я рисовала одного полюбившегося мне персонажа, то тоже сделала его несколько мужественней, а то стремно)
