Khet Portrait by DarlingMionette Khet Portrait by DarlingMionette
Omgosh. Mio did art! Lol It feels weird posting after so long. Anyways, I wanted to practice my painting since I've been sort of out of circuit for the last few months - I also really wanted a portrait of Khet, the new main character from my short-prologue-long-story (posted earlier today) So here she is. Undetermined age.. she's somewhere between 7 and 13 when the story begins.

This is just a quick painting, no initial sketch was done - took about an hour to complete. This is the original painted size.

Tools: Paint Tool SAI
Reference: [link] (c) by ~stock-foto-graf-hi
Character: (c) ME! =DarlingMionette

If you're interested, check out her story in my gallery :3 -> [link]

Do you do commissions?

I do. There's a panel on the left hand side of the front page to my corner of DA that has a link to my commission info and examples of my work.

so if I gave you a detailed list of a character from a story, could you create their picture?

it can be done. It's easier if there are photo references but as long as there's a good description of their personality and basic appearance, I can usually draw something close. There's always a bit of back-and-forth checking with a commissioner on what may need to be changed/improved upon before I finalize a drawing.

I'm a writer, so I try to capture all the details in my writing. I wish I could draw, I tried, but I need practice. Alas, so does my writing.

I sent you a private note with details.

Thanks.

wow, she's really pretty! and she's wearing make-up XD
when drawing new characters (like faces and stuff) do you just make them up or use real people as reference?

:icondarlingmionette:
DarlingMionette Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Both XD I usually have a reference photograph to work with to begin with, but after the original shape is drawn up, I throw it out and just keep going with my imagination XD there's a link in the description for the original reference for this one.

The palette is just...awesome. c: I really love the feel and look of this. Not bad for just getting back into the swing of things. ;) lol

(And I LOVE how...gritty this looks. Seriously. It gives it a life that some of your other pieces don't seem to have.)

:D Thank you! Haha, I usually like my work a lot more "smooth" and plastic-like, I'll admit - so this time around I tried to add a lot more brush strokes and texture into it, and I think it turned out pretty well :3

Khet means "wood" in Egyptian, doesn't it? I know this because one of my main character's past lifes is "Khet." Part of me wants to be slightly sad, cause the awesomeness of that name has been discovered by another. But part of me is also like, "yeeeeeahhhh, me and her have good taste." :D

lmao, that's awesome ^^ I didn't know that. In Khet's language, it means river-stone ^^ In her story, the moment she gets named, she's standing defiant in the middle of a pond :3
