Commission: Latirus by Wen-M Commission: Latirus by Wen-M
done for :iconiceyphoenixfire:

Lord of Water, Latirus.

Latirus is a cool seashell, look it up if you are bored XD

For this one, I went really nostalgic on the design elements, how all the decoration can be found in the ocean, the shells, the fish bones, and overall the color scheme is very water-ish. I am glad i went for more green than blue on the character colors.

The water effect looked better when i first finished it, now i look at it, i cant help but to think i could have done better =P

(wow, i actually had something to say...LOL)



Oh, almost forgot.

for those who know what day today is, give it a short moment. :hug:

In addition to the high technical quality, the creativity of the way you integrated the sea life motif was superb!

I amazed taht I actually knew what a latirus was, already...:omg:
I like how you made each end of the staff one end of the shell... unless I'm having another one of my blonde moments, and you were doing nothing of the sort.
all around, it's a fantastic picture! favorited!

I love how his shoulder cape is a fishing net with hooks. I also dig the scepter, the design of his sandals, and the shells at the end of his really long loincloth.

I notice that you seem to do the colourfade thing in hair often. On this guy, I think it would look better with either one or the other. The green-blue blending with brown-blond doesn't seem to work.

But my FAVORITE part? Totally the placement of that dagger. :XD:
