Dear Dorian

Ramon Tikaram / Dorian Pavus
Sometimes you come across a character who just resonates with you so very deeply it's almost infuriating. For me, Dorian Pavus from Dragon Age Inquisition is one of those. There is a spectacular number of reasons for this, and one of them is in no small part thanks to amazing actor Ramon Tikaram who gave him his voice.
Turns out that he is as gorgeous to look at as his voice is to listen to. I simply couldn't resist. I give you Ramon Tikaram as Dorian Pavus.

A little sparkle

I really want to paint Lord Tirion in all his finery with some massive over the top head gear and whatnot. But I always find myself toning him right back. Just a little gentle glitter in the fabric and a silver string in the hair. Perhaps next time. :-)

Blowing a hoolie

The word-prompt 'alien' was suggested in the 29 Faces group the other day, for topical reasons, and I suddenly remembered that I had a post it note on my wall saying 'aliens in everyday situations'. So there... Face number 8, an alien blowing bubbles.
To save a bit of time I used a photo I took of this amazing park in Wales as the base for the background. Which means that technically speaking this guy is hanging out in a park in Wales. And you know, if I was visiting from another planet, I would definitively go to Wales. :-)

Oh captain, my captain

Knight Captain Whitfield
Face number 7 for the 29 Faces. A big thanks to my trainer Linden for modelling for this one. And on that note I very much feel the need to add the following disclaimer... No, I did not remove his shirt and cover him in glitter. I made that bit up.

Dim the lights

Face number 6. Woefully behind, I know. I've been so tired this week, but I finally found some energy to finish this today. Also, I was undecided about the lighting, so I present to you all three variations. Enjoy.

Autumnal vibes

Face number five for the 29 Faces. September. I love Autumn, and judging by today's weather, I think it has arrived.

Master of Disaster

Catastrophe Jones
You know how, sometimes you hear some words in a certain order and your brain just goes 'That's a person and I'm gonna paint them'.

Face number four for the 29 Faces. Catastrophe Jones.
