Hah. Congratulations, Masha - I found this by accident. You're very high in the Google Image results for 'Prince Nuada', who I was using as a comparison while discussing character designs with a friend :) Nice to see you pop up from the blue. Like a small and creative Cthulhu.

You don't *look* big >.> Our design discussion was related to an alt universe version of the Fantastic Four comic hero team. Not my thing, I don't like superheroes in general - but I enjoy any opportunity to brainstorm character designs. I shouldn't really share more, for respect of his creative possessions =p Hope to catch you on gtalk soon m'lady.

He's probably the most badass elf I've ever seen . Kudos to Hellboy 2 artists and kudos to you for drawing such lively poses.

thanks. i do agree, he's a very intersting character and it's a pity he is not further explored anywhere (to my knowledge).

I made some quick sketches of the training scene as well and is so difficult to catch with such perfection all the movements.

When I first saw this in the theatre, my first reaction was, "What the hell is Elric doing in this story?" but it was obvious that Del Toro was taking a cue from Moorcock's work in depicting the elegant yet savage prowess of this warrior prince. He is one of the finest tragic villain's I've ever seen and you capture his essence here perfectly! :clap:

thank you very much, both for the nice words, and the thoughtful comment. it's a pleasure. :)

Also i thank you for pointing me to look up this Elric character, with whom i have not been previously acquainted, yet... strangely, reading about him online he sounds very familiar to me, as he seems to be echoing in the long line of albino anti heroes popping up over the years in fantasy - Raistlin, Geralt, Arthas (whose business with the sword is also quite reminiscent of Elric)... he seems to be a proto-albino-angsty-empire-betraying-angst-prince, i am rather intrigued.
I agree, Nuada makes that film worth watching (well, he and the amazing visual richness). He remains ambiguous, relatable – never really evil, never really very good, a nice portrait in shades of grey. Truly a complex man. I'm glad you like. :)

Thanks! You might be interested in my own version of a mysterious, brooding pale hero in the fan fic I made in the Star Wars universe. I've posted three chapters so far and I'd appreciate your comments. Start here: [link]

the bg is the simplest thing, it's just a texture i found here on devart (i even thought i credited it until this very moment), which i tinted and edited in minor photoshppy ways.

i'm afraid the file doesn't have the artist's name on it, so i don't know. :/ i dled it many years ago, before i was in the habit of saving things with the artists' names in the file name.

anyways, if it's this one in particular you're after, i uploaded it here on imageshack: [link]

wow, thx mate !
thank you very much !
there arent that much nice people on DA ! but u are! :D

i realy like the way u draw like on that pic, did u use the standard hard brush with a pressure setting on it?
i know, i am asking ,asking and asking XD

(sorry for that bad english)

:iconbabushkayaga:
BabushkaYaga Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2010  Professional Filmographer
no problem. i like being of help.

i don't use the standard brushes much, this was another one of the brushes i dled from somewhere (i don't make my own) - an elongated one with a hard edge on one side and a blurry-splattery edge on the other, with opacity settings.

it's all about trying different brushes and seeing which ones you flow best with. :)
