Dark and stormy by Losmios Dark and stormy by Losmios
The title came first. :) It's a drink actually.

I hadn't done Ataraxe in a while, and thought he deserved a brooding full body portrait.

The scene depicts him on the Lookout Knoll, gazing towards the Gryphon Mounatins.

My computer froze before I had a chance to save my grass, and the new one I had to make (yes, I had to restart the damn thing and lost all the work up until my lats save) is not up to par with the first version, you know how THAT is, redoing something you just did from scratch... So sorry abut that.
And the ocean, like real shortcut there, it should look all stormy and wavy but I gave up on that, it just looked weird. Mayeb I'll go back and work on it, who knows.

Once I had gotten a good bit on the way I realized it is quite similar to my portrait of Fallfrost, but that can't be helped. XD

As per usual it was created completely in photoshop, taking I have no idea how many hours so don't ask.

I know you're not on dA anymore, but still thought I'd feature this amazing artwork, so that more people can enjoy it :D [link]

Did you have permission from Sarah Mink to use her Stormwatch resin as the reference for this photo?

Hey there. This is GORGEOUS and I'm definitely +faving it but I'd honestly feel better if you gave credit where credit is due to Sarah Minkiewicz-Breunig who created the sculpture; Stormwatch that was definitely used as a reference for this piece.

Here's the link to an image of Stormwatch that eerily matches your picture above if you reverse it; [link]


Thank you and keep up the AMAZING work!
