  • Elric Fanart

    For some queer reason I decided to post my most famous Elric drawing... What does everyone think about it? If anyone replies, then feel free to give me your most honest opinion... I worked on this drawing for three hours, starting at 3 a.m...

    They're all true... Especially the lies.

      Thank you Morgan, I actually drew this while a terrible lightening storm was going on outside... I am surprised that I didn't mess up because I am terrfied of lightening!

        The Dark Mage Of Melnibone,


        Oh! Fantastic! It is really cool!


        Excellent drawing!


        Can you make an animated series? That is a good face and expression that I feel would really fit in an animated tale.


        superb way to draw the mouth, I see you only used a few lines, but it is really somehing how it comes together. You really must know what to put where to make it most effective.


        I sure would like to see one with his whole face,as well.

        very creative!

        -the only thing that I would comment on,(I'm no artist, but played around with art,mostly all bad,hehe,but...),

        I don't want to be negative, but I personally like it better without the ear in the hair.

        or-just me-I think it would look better, a little higher on the head?

        -and maybe give the ear a little twist so it curves back.

        I only suggest,because,I would really like to see it that way, and if you don't mind the advice, I think if you drew it a second time, like I said, you might like it better yourself.

        I am probably wrong.....

        Thanks for letting me speak of your artwork.

        P.S. I am just trying to help, you really captured the spirit of the character!

          Lemec, I thank you for your honest comments... Alas! You are right! I too, think that I have the ear a little disporportioned... Perhaps I could alter it some, but I am too frightened to try... Oh well, the deed is done, I cannot change it... I was hoping one would not notice, but I suppose it seems more dramatic that way, it isn't supposed to be too realistic... The twist with the ear seems very idealistic, I'll try that next time! Thank you! I can do a realistic detailed image of him, but it will have to take time... I was thinking of drawing an Elric comic, and the art of this picture is based on that... Thank you again... Feel free to comment me any time....

          I fare thee well...

            I am much relieved that you found my comment useful. Please,please don't change it. A comic would rule the cosmos!

            I think you really should try to get into the graphic novel business.

            You are right, it is fantasy, it should be as you have it.

            I guess,I was just thinking in different terms. (plus my ears are too big,haha,I compared were mine were located in relation the drawings. )

            If you have the time, I sure would like to see a piece from your comic when you start on it.

            Are you going to art school?

            Please,keep up the good work!

            I really like it.

              Really like it I agree with yourself and Lem about his ear, but that's only a minor flaw. I think you have captured the image of Elric that I see in my head pretty accurately.

              Well done !

              Cheers,

                I thank you for your comments Muroc, I should have thought about the ear, but oh well... At least someone finally told me what was wrong with it! I drew him in a way that I imagined him to look, only without the detailed lines and shadowing...

                I fare thee well

                  Lemec, I was thinking about going into the Graphic novel business, but I hate to admit, I THINK I DRAW LIKE CRAP!!!!!!! *Laughs* But since my good friends have commented on my art and gave me their honest opinions, I think I might go along with it anyway... And yes, I am starting my comic soon and I will be glad to send you the first piece!

                  Your ears are located in the exact position as my drawing?!
                  They could not be that big! Hah! Hah! Hah!!!!

                  No, I am not in art school! *Laughs* But maybe your comment along with everyone else's have changed my mind!

                  I fare thee well... The Dark Mage
