Request - Kethavel by kokomiko Request - Kethavel by kokomiko
First of all - Kethavel's character moved be deeply. She has a fate both tragic and beautiful.I've probably spent too much time on rendering this =_=. Seriosly, ask :iconraven-gray-1420: about her mind-blowingly awesome sad backstory. Do it. It's too large to fit here. She is of altmer and bosmer heritage, but i stuck with a more altmer-ish appearance.
The picture depicts her last days, as she plunges deeper and deeper into the void of her own deranged soul.
I tried to channel Yoshitaka Amano here
:iconraven-gray-1420: i really tried to give her justice, forgive me if i depicted her not the way you imagined =P

This is beautiful, I wish I had more words but I'm awestruck. The colours you used, the folds in the fabric, the subject's emotions and pose and expression are so well shown here, I know nothing about this person but looking at her I feel like I know so much. This is a wonderful piece of work and I am glad I had the fortune of coming across this. I wish I had this framed on my wall so I could look at it every day.

You captured her emotion and soul extremely well, I don't know her backstory but I can see the struggle and sorrow in all her details. Seriously, amazing work.

Where can we read her backstory? (...is this a reasonable request or is the link close up in my 'tupid face?) Thankee.

This is easily one of my favourite images of an altmer(+bosmer). The main reason is that you can see her torment, how it has worn her down and signs of aging but still kept a very elven appearance. Pictures like this one inspires me to create new characters. Great job!

I like the wrinkles most of all and that really distant look in her eyes.

Oh gods thank you so much, you've made her just that... she appears wonderfully deranged and tired here, just in character, thank you so much. *______________*
Потрясающая цветовая гамма, и выражение лица действительно задолбанного жизнью существа. *_*
Видел внизу полицию лора... пф, еще бы были полукровки, в смысле, в игре, где из серии в серию нет детей и кошек, кошек и детей. Впрочем, обоснуй вышел бы снова на много букв. *вздохнул*
Вы сделали мой вечер, боги, я счастлив, спасибо огромное. Это великолепно, потрясающе и цвета-складочки на одежде, и цветовая гамма кожи (тени и контуры без лайна *_*). Я в полном восторге, еще тысячу раз спасибо. :heart:

Thanks! And thanks for not picking on the hand ( люди назвали ее зародышем чужого вконтактике), i'm so happy you liked it! I really want to paint her again, maybe in different time period.

Maybe you can insert Kethavel in one of your stories, that would be a great cameo.
