In the Shadows of Wounded Coast by Smilika In the Shadows of Wounded Coast by Smilika
I've done this commission for :iconkaanamoonshadow:
Anders and Hawke somewhere on the Wounded Coast...:heart:

-------------------------
It was interesting work to do, because:
1) Anders isn't my usual muse and his appearance isn't easiest thing to work with.
2) I wanted to draw picture with strong contrast colors. Brightness and a lot of shadows at the same time.
3) I am truly happy with sky. I like how it came out))))No, really =D

I love this one. In one of my fics (modern AU), Anders and Hawke take a vacation, far away from everything, just the two of them...

*happy sigh* Lovely!

I hate Anders... oh, yes, let the rabid fans come and kill me, cause I loved him in Awakening, but in DAII... I just kept wondering if it was actually the same guy... and he was, but at the same time, he was not. But enough of that. I faved this one, so you probably guessed I loved it,right? Right!!! The sky was the best for me, but the rest was also great. Also, I'm a sucker for romance, and the sea, and the colors of sunset... you got the idea... :giggle:

I can't say that i so hate Anders in DA2. I was disagree with his methods of action, but his ideals still were very close to mine.
Thank you for your comment, anyway)))))))))))))

Yes, I bet you are a mage at heart. :giggle: I was just...sort of pissed off because I really liked Anders and then Bioware decided to change him so much I didn't like him anymore. Well, not the first time it happens,I guess. Still, you paint him wonderfully! And that makes me miss the old him,yeah.

I love the coloring on this! And I'm really glad you did some different clothing for them, it gives it a much different feeling. Much more relaxed and natural.

One, let me just say that you SHOULD be happy with/proud of that background, because it is AMAZING.

Secondly, I really like this. The clothing is more modern looking than anything anyone normally wears in game, but not so obviously modern that it couldn't be something they would "really" wear, and it's just different enough to make for a nice juxtaposition with the setting the characters come from and all the fantasy-styled jewelry and her tattoo.

Really, really well done.

AMAZING. Extraordinarily beautiful, one of the finest pieces of fanart I have ever seen. The background is like a dream, and Anders and Hawke look so very REAL, especially in their casual clothes. Like some very loving (and beautiful) couple I could see here on the coast near me....

I am in awe.

Одежда немного не из той вселенной, имхо. А так очень и очень замечательная, чувственная работа. И несмотря на то, что фигуры прекрасно вписываются, не знаю, я первым делом обратила внимание именно на безумно-красивый потрясающий пейзаж.
*А мой перс танцевала с ним под дождем где-то недалеко от стен города. Фенрис, которого Авелин послала проследить за магом, из-за этого простыл.*
