Royal Assassin by sakimichan Royal Assassin by sakimichan
Update: resubmitted from last night, adjusted the image a bit.

portrait for a character I'm developing for my portfolio.
Her story goes something like this XD: She's a elf orphan that was taken in by the humans soldiers when she was still a child. Since she was a very agile and had potential of being more than a slave, they decided to train her to become an assassin.
In the portrait she's around 25.

I'll be working on a full-body concept later on : )

used: photoshop CS 4

Excellent piece of art! I like your drawing style here, it fits her very well. Makes me want more. Maybe a full body picture of her with a nice sketch-like environment around her (please ;-) )
ps: she looks like a stone cold killer! I love it!

Her eyes are captivating! The whole image is but her face... Oh my gosh her face *w*
I also love how simple the painting actually is if looked at closely but beautiful when looked at from the right distance.
I have to work on that... I get too close to my paintings and focus on small details.

Love the picture and basically everything about it including the dragon. Though not as a assassin. Personally in the fantasy world I've been crafting she'd be perfect as a dragon's servant or bonded. Basically a dragon's family when away from other dragons. Normally a bond formed out of mutual respect and not so much taking people as slaves. As for why I've said all this I don't really know aside from this picture being quite good for my inner muse. Keep up the amazing work.

Beautiful earthy colours. It feels steampunk, yet lit with a cold light. I adore the icy tone of grey of the jewels, they're magnificent so poignant. The characters eyes seem very hard but they're granted great depth by the colder light, and such warm tones.

Wow this is such an amazing portrait! I especially love the use of rosy colours and background blurring to bring out her "glowing" skin :D.

One thing is bothering me though: the two light blue pieces of jewellery on the right side of the page do not cast shadows on the right side D:!
The light source appears to be from the left, while the shadow of the two pieces is on their left side; just something I've noticed.

Why on earth would an assassin have assassin clothes? That would be unnecessarily risky.

malkrow21 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012
Why would it be bad for an assassin to look like a mage or a priest? At least she wouldn't look like an assassin, which is the last thing assassin should ever look like. And as for the jewelry, think about the advantages that could actually give you. If you're walking around casually,then nobody would ever suspect anything from you, and if they did hear you coming and saw you, they'd probably think your some woman who likes to dress fashionable.
