Cheves by ElsaKroese Cheves by ElsaKroese
I'm trying to get back into doing my art-study-schedule, and this was one of the warm-up sketches I made this week. Since I'm trying to have a bit more fun with it, I decided to draw something I like and just goof around with that. So, I drew Cheves,the Alar in exile, from my webcomic Spindrift (www.spindrift-comic.com).
I wasn't entirely sure if he was smoldering or just being bored, but the majority of response so far taught me that indeed he is smoldering XD (yay!)

You probably have the best drawing style I've ever seen. It's so lifelike, but not hyper realistic like a lot of those pencil/charcoal portraits you see.

:D The comic itself is also very wonderful! I'm sad I read through it in one sitting, and it's so much work to produce more. Regardless, I look forward to seeing further installments!

This is such a fantastic picture! Even in the thumbnail I could tell it was awesome and I was not disappointing. I am very happy to see you making any kind of art. I also like how thin your lines are, they look really delicate.

Haha I vote for the smolder. ;)

'Warm-up sketches', suuuuuure...!

If I may, what sort of exercise was this? Study with reference, or constructive drawing from the mind? Because faces are still troublesome for me and I'd like to know your resources!

This was mostly goofing around. I use my own reference sheet for the character, which is just a collage of my most successful drawings of him. Eventually I used some photo to reference the skintones, so if anything I'd call this a study of skin tones XD (where it's a study in the loosest sense of the word XD)

Well he's looking positively fabulous at any rate! And I mean that in the most manly sense possible...!

Well done Elsa.

I really like his quiet, "Right, enough, already." expression. "You could have not done that, and I would have been much happier" is another way to explain the first quoted phrase.

Really beautiful Elsa! I love him in the comic. You haven't gone into why he's in exile yet, right? :3

He has the look of, "I'm putting up with you for now, but only for now."

Interesting and awesome character design, I check out your website, and it's seem promising and exciting. I'll try to read it when I have the time. :)
By the way could you check out my characters for my comic on my DA account, I would love the feedback.

Yay! It's Cheves! 

Yes, I'd say the look is more smoldering than bored... Very nice!

He looks both very real and out of this world at the same time 
Love everything about it >///<
