Thanks! and he also has an eyebrow ring I didn't put on, too. He's very accessorize-y. xD

Thanks! I don't remember which brushes I used, actually!! I just got a bunch of new ones, but I don't remember when I started using them...

I have a feeling I probably smoothed over him with some of the Nagel Series 37 [link] brushes, though. (I usually use Skin 07 ^^) They are pretty cool, if you want to check them out!

Oh. Ohhhhh my. Oh, goodness.
I...think I may have to revisit BG2 now. With an Edwin romance mod. Because, uh. No reason.

You have such a beautiful painting technique; I'd kill to have a handle on painting skin and hair the way you do here!

(and just aargh, seriously, THAT HAIR. What an absurdly attractive man you've drawn here. I...can't English anymore right now. XD )

UGH YOU MADE ME COME BACK TO THIS PICTURE TO STARE AT IT AND GIGGLE OMG I WILL PRETEND THAT IS A NEW LEVEL OF IDIOCY FOR ME

we'll just say your enthusiasm was contagious; I get so ridiculously happy whenever I run into other Edwin fangirls...;P

uhhh what were we talking about? oh, right! I was going to say, I wish I hadn't overwritten this one; I should have just posted the new version and left the old one on there, so you could see how much it improved!! All these years of obsession practice finally paying off. ;)

but, um, oh, right--thank you!! :heart: yeahhh you really better go play it. like, right now. DON'T KEEP HIM WAITING

Really nice Edwin, he looks good in both variants, but I would preferred this one over the bald version.

((I think if I have time to work on this one [link] some more, it would be my favorite. ^^))

*trawls the internet for good alternate Edwin portraits*

*finds the motherlode*

Just wanted to join the chorus of praise! Edwin has been my favourite character since I first played BG1 all the way back in 1998, and he doesn't get enough love remotely (though there is an Edwin romance mod, so I suppose that's something). I just bought BG:EE on my iPad and figured out a way to change the portraits of the NPCs, so this is now my Edwin! (I'm also using your Dorn, Viconia, Xzar, and Shar-Teel portraits, and one of your OCs for my PC to keep portrait consistency).

On that non-Edwin note, I love your Shar-Teel portrait. It is *so difficult* to find Shar-Teel portraits, let alone ones as amazing as yours. Much love!

yay--so happy I could be of service, thank you! :love: right back ^^

and I do what I can for promoting the Edwin love! In fact, I seem to have a bit of a *cough* preoccupation regarding that Red Wizard; he insists on starring in my paintings rather frequently... ^//^ <3

ok, sorry, it took me a really long time to mull this over. ^^; But Edwin needs more exposure, so I can support spreading his notoriety; go for it! :D

Thanks for your interest; glad you like him that much! ^^ <3

Although, I guess I should clarify, as long as you're not trying to take credit for it or anything, then we're good. ;)

I love the portrait! However! (Huge nerd moment pending)

In Thaay, hair is generally only grown by foreigners and slaves.

That said, this is now my CHARNAME's portrait. :D

There is a small faction of fangirls that are lore-defiant--and admittedly, during the first version of this portrait a few years ago, I was one of them--but I've since come around. So don't worry about trying to out-nerd me, pfft! ;D [link]

But in any case--thanks!! xD I'm glad you like it; hope it works well for your CHARNAME. (That hair will totally give your PC a charisma bonus, btw. ;))

AGHH I just realized that my comment could easily seem really pretentious and snotty! xD but I was referring to my original picture that I had uploaded back in 2009 and just recently updated--not 'the original' as in the official original. >_>; but at any rate, thank you. :) What I was trying to say was: I've improved a lot in the last few years, and I'm glad it shows. ^^

thank you!! :) I've been paying a lot more attention to color, and also using cool Photoshop CS5 brushes instead of the standard Photoshop 7.0 brushes is certainly helping. ;D It's making me want to go back and scribble over all my old paintings now!!
