Friend or foe? by Smilika Friend or foe? by Smilika
Another Baldur's gate fan-art. Well, sort of...I've been working with this image quite long time and it still looks ugly in places, but i already don't care...so...
My head canon description of this meeting scene with Kivan looks somehow like this:


Imoen: But he doesn't seems like a bandit! He helped us . I think we can trust him :)
Reina: Nobody seems bad at first sight. Until it's too late. ><
Kivan: i could kill both of you, if i wanted to. But i didn't. Instead we can fight at one side against Tazok and his bandits.
Imoen: See, i told you, Reina! So, can we be friends now? ^_^
Reina: I still don't trust him. I will be watching over you, ranger


)))))))))) That's not perfect, but i'm not writer and i can't bring to life all my ideas. I tryed to paint it instead =D

Very nice.

At first when I saw just a preview I mistook Imoen for Leliana from Dragon Age :)

Ah, Baldur's Gate... I'm a huge fan! To think I got the Enhanced Edition (it was a present, yay!) and haven't found the time to play! Shame on me! Gotta correct that right away, specially after seeing this :lol:

Well, I guess you're right about that... hum... used to play the game heavily modded too... Dunno, I think I wanna try it anyways? Once I finish Kingdoms of Amalur, perhaps? :bounce: Yup, I'm definitely going to try! I'll let you know how that works! :hug:

i wanted to buy this edition too, but i already can't imagine my playthrough without different NPC and adventure mods. I heard EE can't support almost all of them.

Oh my, have I ever seen your Imoen before? Because she's beautiful and impish and innocent at the same time. Just like she should look like :) Or maybe it's just all my imagination :D
The suspiciousness beaming from the picture makes me smile so much...especially when I know from one of your previous pictures, that Reina and Kivan might ended up like more than just comrades in arms  :fellaeyes:

That's absolutely incredible and I love every detail about it - the clothes, the background, the face expressions (!), using my two favourite NPCs, everything. I guess now it's gonna be my favourite baldur's gate fanart. Too bad I cannot fave it more than once ;)

I managed to get my hands on a copy of the Enhanced Edition of Baldur's Gate, but sadly it keeps crashing and I haven't really been able to play it much at all... :(

I even don't want to play  Enhanced Edition, because my usual mods doesn't work here. Without them i can't romance Kivan and that's the PROBLEM =D Crying

Never being a player of Baldur's Gate, it's a little hard for me to tell what's going on just looking at the picture, after reading the description the only suggestion I would've made is have the angry woman have her knife draw, as though she's saying "I don't trust you, I'm watching you."

Regardless of the mood of escalated tension between the travelers, I think you did a FANTASTIC job and don't see where or why'd you'd think areas of this painting are "ugly" or could be better. You made another terrific piece of art, take pride in this accomplishment. :)

ах, рыцарь с сияющей улыбкой и на белом коне?)))) Понимаю, бывает))) Хотя у меня ГГ по канону зараза недоверчивая, её как-то блеск его героических манер не особо очаровал)) Ей подавай оборванца с грустными глазами и трагической судьбой =D 

Мне во второй части, без модов и прочих плюшек, среди мужского населения больше всего, кстати нравился Валигар. Ещё один неразговорчивый брутал, который ещё к тому же с Викой погавкаться не забывал, как это в первой части так эпично делал Киван)))


Ну раз обещаешь, как я могу не верить?)))) Если вдруг будешь правда мод пробовать, то лучше всего с самой первой  части проходить с модом NPC1 project + собственно мод на самого Кивана для второй части)

Ну, не сразу мы с сиром Аноменом нормально общаться начали)) Ссоры были и по-крупному)) Но смогла моя таки выдрессировать мужика)) Он оказался не такой и зануда. Нормальный человек со своими тараканами в голове))

А мод попробую обязательно и конечно же с первой части))) Спасибо))

Да там все спутники немного с прибабахом, если уж честно.) Под стать ГГ, с его порченной кровью бога) Адекватных спутников почти нет, за редким исключением))))


только учти - это вещь для терпеливых и не для слабонервных =D
