SC: Smoke by Cei-Ellem SC: Smoke by Cei-Ellem
I think this portrait captures his demeanor pretty well...

This is one of :icondulcis-absinthe:'s characters from our story, The Stygian Codex.

EDIT: Re-textured, shirt fixed, and background lightened to match with Que's a bit more.

EDIT AGAIN: Changed the pose to something :icondulcis-absinthe: felt suited her character better ^_^.

I think he looks great, but I'm still wondering why he's crosslegged. *blink* I've never imagined Smoke doing it.

He isn't crossing his legs; he has one foot propped up on his knee. Trust me, it looked weird with both legs down. This balances well.

;_; sadness. He looks so... off. It's amazing how he looks just like him, but the way he's sitting looks like something more like what Liam would do. Did you try to have him stand instead of sit? I know I'm being such a pain, but he looks... well, queer. XD

Only people who have read the third chapter would get that at all ^^;

And, truth be told, blame it on the suspenders. I have to add about a dozen extra pieces to them so that they morph correctly when he moves.

If you want me to try a new pose, I can. It's hard to find good ones for guys.

Totally understand that. Remember the Brendan issues? Which, by the way, finally figured out what's still weird with his image. His arms are longer than normal. Just as an aside. He looks fine, but I realized it the other day when I saw it again. His arms are just really long. I don't know how you could fix that though.

Seems kinda pointless now. Good for future reference though. Working on (hopefully) the final edit to this one, with him in a better pose.

I'll be happy to have the time and tools to draw again once I get back home.
