Chrysalea Metalmark
September 2010
Wacom Intuos 9x12, Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0

This picture is a prize commission all the way back from the "Trappings for Tex Tornado" contest. I have put it off too long, but I bet Christina thinks that's okay, based on the level of detail I put into my pictures now as opposed to when she won it.

The daughter of sculptor Aurelian Metalmark, Chrysalea is the resident druid of the Lightforge guild, as well as holding the distinction of being Hazdar Stoneclamber's girlfriend.

At an approximate eight hours of drawing time, by my new commission standard for a full-color 500x500 piece, this piece cost me five dollars an hour to produce. If you think that's a bargain, I recommend you seize it, because who knows when my prices will increase again!

Ooooh pretty. You should make a lip-tutorial because this was a nice way of making lush lips in a subtle way.

Warcraft aside, it's beautiful.
This is you at the top of your game, and is a testament to the huge progress you've made since we met all those moons ago.
My favourite part though would have to be the nose. The separation of the line maintains the shape but gives it a feminine subtlety so she doesn't end up with a huge nose.

You say "Warcraft" like it's a bad thing! Which means you are paying attention.

I like best the fact that she actually has pupils. For some reason it's just making the picture to me. You see that skipped way too often in night elf pictures.

I wonder if her eyes irritatingly light up a pleasantly dark room, as a cell phone does in a movie theater.

This picture is spectacular. Absolutely astounding. I am, at this moment, printing it out onto cardstock so I can hang it just to the left of my computer monitor, I like it so much. YES, I am glad you waited so long to get my prize done! Thank you so much!
