This originally started out much .. huger. I had a big background, but, unfortunately, my skills in painting forests are somewhat lacking and I found the entire thing kind of distracting. Plus I didn't want too much to draw the eye away from the Drow himself, sooo I cropped it down and left in the important bits. =D Water is fun to paint. This was also one of my better ventures into male anatomy.

His muscular anatomy came out pretty good. I like how well you did the posing of his arms and the water effects coming from his left hand. The background looks wonderful.

He's reeeeally sexy!

It's very good, the colors are balanced and the atmosphere is terrifing sensual.

My compliments!

Mm, yummy! I love his expression, it's like: "Come into the water and play, I dare ya..." I can't really tell if he's being taunting or tempting. Maybe both.
I love the jewlery, it's so pretty. I want that necklace. And the tatoos are lovely too. Blue and brown go so well tohether, I think.

Hmm... I'm inspired to draw handsome men in water now. Thanks! :D

Yeah, I never really noticed how well blue and brown work together until I started playing with it in my own pieces. :o Definitely a unique color combo.

Ok gotta keep my work uh? This is a really lovely piece here and the male elf is super hot.

However if he's in the water his reflection should also be there. Plus be careful with his hips they should be a bit nallower because he's male.

Other than that awesome work here. =)Maybe we should form a crit support group. =)

Ah, yep, thanks a bunch. I may have had his reflection in the bigger piece but got rid of it when I cropped the picture down a bunch and overlooked that. I need more practice with men! :D Thank you!

And yes, I think that's a good idea. :heart:
