Svarik, OC of my friend
He's character from her story called " The Heart of the Mountain", also called Meadow King.
As it could be assumed, Svarik was so cute and giving me puppy eyes for days... It was scary how many many sketches of him were all around my stuff... And notebooks
in time I should had studied, of course XD
I had unfinished sketch of this for already some two-three weeks...
But I didn't want to start painting before I managed to coax Mirach to do artwork of Svarik [link]
so I can completely be sure how he's looking. ( yes, I am little nail-picking, and don't like to do something I am not completely sure will be all right
) It's fascinating how my view of Svarik is similar to hers! Only difference, maybe, might be, I imagined slightly longer beard and more baby-blue eyes, not slightly royal-blue eyes, but I can be forgiven, I hope
And so, knowing myself and knowing Svarik... Three days of passionate no-eating little-sleeping barely-breathing and more than 100 Photoshop layers later, here we go!
P.S. White flying dots shouldn't really be there, since Svarik is Listener, and great player of flute, but not really magical in most common view of magic... But he is affecting the fibres of the world with his songs, so I wanted to add some glittering. Also, at right side, there are flowers of different colors, because soul is white because it contains colors of rainbow ( mine and Mirach's RP theory ) and since Svarik can heal souls with his music,by giving to soul colors its missing... Well, rainbow flowers were obvious choice
Also, white flowers on meadow, I love white flowers
And mountain in background, more of symbolical to connect with story name.
It's also entry to my 100theme challenge called " Playing the Melody". For more of my 100theme challenge visit: [link]
