You do really awesome landscapes, especially forest landscapes that just look beautiful and so magical! You know I always wanted to see someone attemp to draw the ancient elven city of Arlathan from dragon age! Seeing that no one else has even tried to do it really bothers me! I know we have little to go on, but making it up as you go and based on what you hear is have the fun! I just think that someone like you that draws forests so magically and amazing would make a great picture of Arlathan! I just wanted to put it out there seeing how you've done so much other amazing pieces! I think you'd probably take us to Arlathan yourself!

Hmm. I wonder what ladies see in him. He's only a brooding, troubled but handsome warrior with a dark past. Oh wait : D

Oh, this is perfect... his expression is just as I imagine it would be, a youthful face with eyes that have seen too much, and everything in him speaks of his determination to find his revenge.
I'll never get over my Kivan obsession at this rate :D

Oh, oh, I have just come across this masterpiece, and I don't know whether I am blown away or swooning...(perhaps the first, and then the latter!!) :D Seriously, this is splendid, and amazing. The eye goes immediately to Kivan's face with that determined line to his lips, and then when you look longer, is it a semi-smirk? There is a hint of danger and....almost recklessness to it, as though he is about to throw all caution to the wind. And that intensity to his dark eyes...just beautiful. Do you mind if my Rain steals him for a while??? ;)

The background is stunning, and the trees and lighting give the piece a mystical feel while playing up the forest and yet highlighting Kivan as the central-piece (handsome ranger that he is). How would you feel about doing a commission for my Rain and Kivan (any scene from my writing!)?? Pretty, pretty please??? :D

You should be very proud of your work. As I have said before, you have this real talent for taking the soul of characters and turning them into amazing, breath-taking art. Just wonderful! :D

So much different opinions - someone think that my Kivan isn't in character, someone, on the contrary, tell me that it's exactly how Kivi should looks like =D I'm confused =F

thank you very much ^^ I'm really happy that you love this image so much)
Commission? May be later, nowadays i can't draw. Technical troubles. But when i will open commissions again i will be really glad to work with you. Because i love your fanfic and i saw a few truly good scenes which were very inspiring.))))))

The picture you have painted is sooo beautiful that I have put my fingers to the keyboard a thousand times and failed to nitpick. It is just too perfect, the boy is far too beautiful for me to split hairs and say that he looks nothing like Kivan.
I am sorry. He doesn't. :)
Kivan is beautiful, but not attractive. His eyes are round, his nose is big, his tattoos go all the way into his eyebrows (and the eyebrows are thick and ungainly). His lips are of a completely different shape (and ugly!).
Not to mention the receeding hairline or the pallor on the face etc.
I am so, so sorry, you did wonderful work, I was amazed when I saw it and I love every detail. But... maybe Kivan's brother. Not him.
Sorry.

well, it's your opinion and i respect it, in any case ,even if i absolutely disagree with you.
The beauty of this game is exactly in freedom for imagination. In fact we know nothing about Kivan, and his portrait wasn't perfect and i drew my favorite character just like i imagine him. It is how my heart see him.
