the real fight by hiritai the real fight by hiritai
SNAP.

This guy has been through a big re-working. Character, appearence, blahblahblah. Trying to work him in with my other characters without changing the story was my aim, and I'm pretty sure this will work.

Deja 'Mystic' Sunder is his name, and rare/dangerous/powerful/mythical/historical artifacts are his game. Living in an ancient mine on the side of a mountain, Mystic has built an enormous library of secrets and other dangerous things. He keeps to himself, mostly, only sharing his hoard if you have something he wants more than whatever he already has (in which you'd better want more than anything else if you're climbing that damn mountain for just five minutes of his time).

Aside from that, he's done a lot of hunting. He'll hunt anything if the money/reward is good.

Mystic also thinks he is haunted by the ghost of his father, which inhabits a painting... when, really, he's just a bit nutty.


I actually bought him a dark brown wig, but I kind of maybe like this one better. Which is an expensive boo-boo, considering this one had been lying around for months :/ Kind of don't want him to have grey hair, but he looks so damn good in it x.x

Hm... Keep in mind that I'm not a very talented artist myself, but I'll do the best I can. Definitely keep the grey wig. This is from an artistic stand point, and not based on anything else, but if you decide that he, as a character, needs a brown wig, go for it. A brown wig, however, would have made this picture look more harsh, whereas the grey gives it an overall soft tone that works nicely with his resin color, the lighting, and his face sculpt, which is a soft expression.

His face is in focus, and that's very good, because you want the emphasis on a portrait to be on the eyes, and the viewer's attention is drawn to it because his face is really the only thing definitely in focus. The placement of the pendant just above his hands is nice, and the dark pendant is a great contrast to the lighter tone of the piece.

Now, the negatives, of which I have no background training to help you with, this is just my opinion. His hands are out of focus, and my eyes keep looking at them, hoping each time that they will become more focused. I really don't know what that would do to the overall piece, but that's what I've been doing. Also, and I could be wrong on this, but I would double check and make absolutely sure that both his eyes are facing in the same direction. It could just be the angle, and I didn't notice it at first, but it looks like the eye covered by hair is looking just slightly more to the viewer's left than the other eye.

Other than that, great doll, great picture, keep up the good work!

What first got my attention was his eyes and the calm expression. It's funny, because before I read your artist commet one of the few words that came to my mind was "mystic". And that word deffiantly fits the whole piece. The soft and simple colours help make it more enchanting. More magical. If the colours were more bright, vibrant, and a wider variety, I don't think it would have jumped out as much to me in your gallery. Most pictures I usually see are pretty colourful (for the most part), and it's not very common to see pictures with 99% pale colours. But I do like how you have just a little hint of some other colour. And I think it's good how you chose a dark colour at that, helps balance the colours and not make it too pale.

I also like the posture he is in. I'm not really sure how to describe it but without reading the artist comment I could make a pretty cool interpretation of this piece and just makes me think. I think the brown wig would look pretty good if he had that instead of the grey, but I think it would have added too much colour and would have taken somthing away.

His eyes also draw you in fast with the way the light reflects off his dark eyes. And his eyes keep your eyes there for a few seconds, and even after it still keeps drawing you back.

Also another opinion: I think this kind of picture could look good with a guy or girl.

Well done. :)

You inspired me to buy a doll like these too o__o
I love the picture, and the mix between sorrow and happiness, I feel. (I'm weird huh?). I looked on the website in the description, and I sure loved what I saw. I decided that if I ever get the money I would buy a Lance xD Then I read that the doll in your picture was a Lance O,O God I was surprised! Keep up this good work, and stick with the grey! It looks great <3 You WON him? I wish I was that lucky xD Each time I win something it's either cofee or towels =.=
seriously...it is... >.< Ever heard of Delfs? They are awesome Dolls too <3 They actually look really like these, but I don't know if they are the same xD
Luts is a good website to find a Delf, If you want to take a look ;)

Thank you! <3 Lance are all the same, it's just the faceup that differs. He has a custom faceup, I won him in a contest and they just did him like this ^^

They did a very good job with the face up. I'm kinda practicing but...It's not working out so well. And my poor Ducan's paying the price.:shakefist:
I wish i could show you pictures but, long story short brothers stick the wrong things in the wrong ports.
