Sade'nara Sayari by madam-marla Sade'nara Sayari by madam-marla
PORTFOLIO WORK.

Sade's theme song is [link]
I bet it seems shallow to many of you. If so, then so be it. She was a shallow girl too. But she chose the light. That is all.

PS - I'm so sorry for the resubmition. I didn't change anything about the art, I promise.

Old comment:
As far as I'm concerned, this is the first drawing when I've actually gotten her features... right :) As a result, here she is, with her full name, and her little lizardy familiar, my DnD firey sorceress, Sade :)

This is part of the mouse portraits I've been doing for my dnd group :) I'm getting more and more used to this mouse thing, I gotta say, lol :)

pencil sketch, colored in photoshop :) the sketch is now blended in, so I doubt anybody can still see it :)

PROGRESS: hair, step by step: [link]

CREDITS:
Aishwarya Rai was once again the reference for Sade. This time with this picture: [link]
The beautiful rosey things on her dress were photomanipped in. The original stock photo was: [link]
And the empowered spell shard (the pendant she's wearing) was referenced by the illustration in magic item compendium.

Beautiful artwork. Just the right blend of realism and hand drawn art. Reminds me of some of the best of the artwork used in the Fable game series. The eyes, the smile, the pose; they all evoke an emotional response. The fact that you did this with a mouse is astounding. And as for baseing Sade on Aishwarya Rai, Sade wins hands down. Great job!

Aishwarya Rai is one of the most stunningly beautiful women alive, but I'll take the image you did of her you did over her any day. It's perfection, and I'm in LOVE!

That is so freaking cool- I love the skin tones of the face, and the hair! The eyes also have an almost impish set to them... maybe feisty? :-D How long did this take you? (I am also awe-struck by the entire mouse thing.)

I have no idea how long it took me to be honest. It was one of those pieces that just stole me. All the 3 in this set did that, but since this one was my character, I took the most care.

I know, but the Japanese are obsessed with their religion, Shinto, which puts a SOUL in anything *giggles*
So they can say "really cute" and mean "Hunto Nee Kawaii *nods sagely*" *laughs*
