Commission : Ianthe by DomDozz Commission : Ianthe by DomDozz


Original character of the commissioner :)

Ianthe is a divine pixie archer from the Faerie Realm. She is called the Sagittarian (The Archer) and is the embodiment of hunter's archery. She defends the wilds and slays evil demons who threaten nature.
She uses a legendary magical longbow named Sagittarius, despite her power, she is shy.

I really enjoy drawing her ^^

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-05-04
Commission : Ianthe by *DomDozz shines with its own light! From the intricate design to the dynamic composition, everything in this piece has been carefully polished to make it what it is: marvelous! ( Featured by rydi1689 )
I really love the color flow of this picture. The use of your colors really grabs my eye. The background and everything in this is very well balanced. Neither takes away from the other.

The only thing I can really see is that I would have made her right leg by the ankle just a bit more thicker. Other than that your anatomical proportions are excellent! Perhaps add a bit more shine to her hair at the top seeing how thats where the light is coming through.

Keep up the awesome work! I've seen your gallery and you are an amazing artist!

Hello there! I'm by no means a master of color, or a particularly good critique giver, but hopefully what I can contribute will be helpful to you.

You mention feeling that there was something wrong with the colors in the piece, and I think what might be bugging you is the fact that none (or at least very little) of the reflected light is green. Particularly on the pixie.

This makes her feel very separate from the rest of the image, not to mention her environment. Almost like she was dropped in as an afterthought. Otherwise, the detail alone in this is very nice--I applaud you for your work, and hope your commissioner is happy with the end result!

As far as the rating itself goes, I'm never quite sure how to 'grade' commission pieces like this, so really take it with a grain of salt. I docked on vision, originality, and impact because while I can see some semblance of a story in this, I still feel like it's more of a character presentation piece--and while there's certainly nothing wrong with that (heck my own gallery is full of those) it does take away from the strengths of this as a finished illustration vs simply being a character design. And it may just be me again, but her expression feels a little...lifeles. Though whether or not that was intentional I'm not entirely sure.

Anyway, keep up the good work! Obviously I still follow you for a reason.
