Daily Deviation

Given 2007-12-01
This artist has a wickedly fresh, unique style, and The Wedding by *Wystro almost breathes with his vision. The expression of the bride and her adoration and the stance of the groom suggests there will be none opposed to this union. The sheen of the skin, the stiff satin gleam from the dress, and a few demons to train in from the closets, are all exquisitely shaded and highlighted with unique flair. ( Suggested by Netah and Featured by JunkbyJen )

It probably shouldn't, but the man's expression cracks me up.
Reminds me a bit of Yoshitaka Amano's style, very beautiful and detailed.

Not really, but it does have a bit of that feel. Certainly they both have the pallor of doom.

This was originally an illustration for a corporately-owned intellectual property. If I identify them as they were originally intended, I wouldn't own them anymore! Sorry to be coy, but I want them to still be mine =)

This is all digital. I did it on Photoshop, and the file is actually very huge. I can make the groom layer disappear, and it looks like the bride is hanging onto air! Thank you for taking the time to comment on my piece =)

Well in my mind, those who do art have nothing better to do, or if they do, dont care. I draw, because if I make up a charecter, I want it to come alive, and so i add pictures, and after years of pracice, built up my skill.

I remember seeing this long ago, before I realised we both visit TAC :) I was heavily involved in roleplay in EQ at the time and to me this pretty much summed up the relationship between my rogue and her Shadow Knight lover Mogadeche. I know the Knight in the picture isn't him, but he is so much like him I couldn't help but think it was painted for us in some divine way lol. I'm glad to find it again and know the artist a bit better now :)

I'm glad this picture brings back those memories. I used to RP way back in the day when I played EQ -- I loved the experience, but I think three years of real life vanished as payment! I'm think those type of things can only happen once.
