Overseer of the Stars - Aljan by frisket17 Overseer of the Stars - Aljan by frisket17
An image done for ...Frankly it's over due. It was for one of my contests. Anyway. What Dwelian wished to see was a character from "FireBringer Trilogy" drawn - a character named Aljan.

She told me some details about the character. I've not yet read anything about the book so I basically drew him with limited details I understood. Never the less, I had thought about not coloring this until I had my better program (something other than Photoshop Elements 1 - Demo version). Ah well. But I plugged through it and did it anyway.

There are elements I like about the piece, and other things I'm well aware need improving. What matters in the end is if Dwelian likes this. :heart:

Everything about this is great! The colors are nice and crisp and clear, and the lineart is superb! I'm especially impressed with the lighting. Beautiful work! :+favlove:

That rocks! I agree the muzzle looks a bit canine but even then somehow it fits in a rather Aljan way - I read the books and maybe you should do more of the characters! I bet it would look awesome!

I love the detailing on the horn, the body shaping and musculatur are good too, the face strikes me as a bit more cartoony than the body though, and there's something about the eyes that just bugs me. Still gorgeous!

Very pretty! I love that tail...the swirly, curly-ness is lovely. Also, the night lighting is quite nice--you pulled it off very well. :3 I've been hearing a lot about this Firebringer trilogy lately...I guess I should knuckle down and read it so that I'll know what's going on. @_@

Wow this is so gorgeous! I really love the lighting and the moon.
I also really enjoy seeing shadows upon characters as I see here with
the shadow of the branch on the charatcer, I always tend to love more shadow then lighting. Cx
I think the horn is awesome! I have tried coloring horns
but they never come out right, which always I can never submit anthing that have horns /:

I have never read the book Trilogy either but the other comments on this it seems like a really good book x3

Really beautiful! like always Frisket :3, I love your work! <33

Absolutely gorgeous job on Aljan here. You REALLY need to read the books - they came back into print a few years ago, so you should be able to find some copies at a bookstore, if you can't find them at the library.
