Stay (Faraway, So Close!) by Aerion-the-Faithful Stay (Faraway, So Close!) by Aerion-the-Faithful
Hey, fellow deviants!

It's been a while since I've uploaded some art to the Gallery, but not because of a lack of work. Quite the contrary!
That said, most of the work I've been doing can be shown, so I expect to have a healthy dose of pieces to show everyone here as I make my (slow) way through commissions and pages.

This image (a sort of belated Valentine's illustration, come to think of it) is another one sprung from the works of a commissioner of mine, who's already have a huge collection of my art. You may recognise these two characters from previous illustrations where they appear alongside other protagonists of the saga: Brothers in Arms by Aerion-the-Faithful  The Departed by Aerion-the-Faithful  Run like Hell by Aerion-the-Faithful
They're obviously lovers and though I haven't read the books the author's written myself (my usual lack of time), her descriptions and the emotions contained therein have made them very real when it comes to render these pieces.

I'm particularly proud of the design of their dresses and hers particularly as it harkens back to one of my favourite sci-fi sagas in comic format, The Metabarons. The image materialised within the cape's flow I think is a great detail and the overall palette is very simple yet strong. I love these pieces where I have to show just a couple of people and their expressions, so I hope I've done justice to the nostalgia and longing I had to paint on them.

I hope you enjoy this one and let me know what you think, as usual.

See you very soon!

Nic.-

Incredible work, Nic!

The design of that dress really is nice! But for some reason my eyes keep getting drawn to her the girl's eyes and those flowers. I just love the shades of blue, and the way you blended into the yellow and white. :clap:

Thank you so much, Colonel!

I took my time with those flowers, I tell you. I sometimes don't get to experiment as much as I'd like on my day to day work, so I have my way with small details like those and try some new combinations with it. I'm glad it gets picked up in the greater composition of the illustration.
