Arabelle by Peachplums Arabelle by Peachplums
Tis Arabelle! My half-elf mage who fell in love with Gavin during BG2 after friend zoning him in BG1. She learned that sweet and dependable can be worth more than brooding and dangerous. Aaah, the cycle of relationships!

Why this portrait looks unlike my others is because I had a reference opened 50% of the time I was painting instead of just 10%. Roughly estimated of course. Makes a difference, if I do say so myself; however, I'm not sure I like how photorealistic it came out. I shall have to ponder if I like it better or not. The technical merits of the portrait are obviously increased, but it loses some of its "Baldur's Gatey" flavor...

One day, I will figure out how to draw leather! And metals ... other than that, I'm proud of the cloth once again ^_^ Oh! And my scribbled in trees. They were fun ;D

In other news, I totally drew this is less than 12 hours. It's a record for me 0>,>

Gavin is not mine. He's Berelinde's! Home page here --> [link]
Baldur's Gate is not mine.
Arabelle is mine in as far as I rolled her stats and drew her...

I like her and I don't think the image is too photorealistic, fits quite well somewhere between the styles of BG1 and 2 portraits. I'm personally not too fond of the BG2 default images, somehow they throw me off.

I'm glad you like it! I'm still trying to find the balance between photorealism and the style of BG2 so my portraits tend to swing between the two : )

Well sense its not I guess I will say a few words about it. I have to be honest its not good, its frekin great! You really shouldnt not like that it looks photorealistic.....arent you the one you told me to imbrace my drawing?!XD To me the part I say done the best on is the eyes, their very.........the only word I can think of is one that I dont think is what I want to say, well anyways with the purple eye shadow mixed with it and all gives it a very nice touch.

hmm piercing no, but strikings alot closer to what I was thinking yes. Her look is of admiration to who she is looking at. I say who because of the romance thing you said at least thats the look I see, is that what you was going for?
