Commissioned by ~MelpomeneTears1. Art for her fanfic My Lioness, featuring Sebastian Vael and Sekhmet Hawke.

Poor, poor Sebastian. I'm not entirely pleased with how I approached the scale armor, but this is the best I can do without spending more than a week just drawing them in. Damn you, whoever designed Sebastian's armor, for all the fiddly details. They look great in-game, but trying to replicate that by hand makes me want to eat my Wacom tablet.

This is awesome! I love the mix of sensuality and creepiness. I love Sebby's eyes especially. Sadly my time for fics is limited and I don't think I can get to this one in awhile. What's the backstory of the piece? The bloody throat piqued my curiosity XD

Let's just say that love can make you do incredibly horrible things. ;-) I can't say much, since doing so will spoil an integral part of some unwritten chapters. I can only suggest that you read what has already been written so far in the link provided in the art description :-)

You've been a crazy awesome artist the whole time I've known you, but I think you leveled up on this one. The texture and poses and expressions are all amazing, the armor is splendid, and it makes me want to go read the story to find out what is going on. Which not many fanarts do for me. :D

I love this piece! The positioning of his hands and the expression reminds me of Renaissance artwork. You always do such a lovely job!

Thank you! :heart: the Ranaissance thing is a bit unexpected, although I shouldn't be surprised by now. This isn't the first time someone had commented on the resemblance in style with regards to my work :XD:

You are quite welcome! I'm pondering what I want a commission for, if you are open? So many Hawkes, not enough money. :P

Hope you are well and not too hot! (You're in Australia right?)

Am in Southeast Asia, actually. Malaysia, to be exact :) The use of Australian currency for my commission work is simply a matter of convenience, as I invest in AUD, and it's easier to deposit that into my investment account ;)

At the moment I've taken a break from accepting new commissions, for health and work-related reasons. I will likely reopen commissions again in April; plenty of time to think about which Hawke you want to be immortalised in art :D

Heya! Sorry for the late reply, been busy.

I will officially start accepting commissions will start sometime around the 7th of April, there will be a journal announcement about it. But if you wish to book early you can note me about what you are looking for :) Thank you!

I think the scale armor looks fine. It doesn't draw the eye like their faces or other pieces of armor, so it is easy to glance over, and when you do that, it looks like it belongs for sure, so I wouldn't worry about it. :) I think Hawke's hair could use a little more detail, cause as it with the fuzzyness on the edges and all... it kind of reminds me of a cottonball. >.< I think it abruptly disappearing into the robe might help with that effect, so just a bit more detail will bring it out rather nicely I think. As for the rest of the piece, it looks spectacular. The faces are superb, their hands are wonderful, the armor looks amazing. And Hawke's tattoos? They look perfect! I rarely see the tattoos done just right, but to me... they look awesome.

Yeah, I agree, hair could be better. I find it difficult to render white/light gray hair. I tend to go too dark too often, haha. Thank you for the crit!

This is beautifully done... But i feel like a bad person as I get a little morbid satisfaction from seeing this. I like Sebastian right until he wants me to kill Anders or he will seek a revenge that equals Anders'. Damned-chaste-lousy romance-whiny-son of a nug /grumble
