Basic Sorcery by ReptileCynrik Basic Sorcery by ReptileCynrik
Magic… sorcery… creating fire. For young Larom, this is the first real challenge. The druid is still at the beginning to become a very powerful caster. And this picture was made to capture this important moment. ^^

Birthday gift to my precious friend :iconlarom: :hug:


Media used:
MEDION tablet and PHOTOSHOP 7.0.1

Working time:
2 hours

Artwork © Patrick Reichel aka :iconreptilecynrik:
“Larom Greenscale” © :iconlarom:


NOTE:
This is not quite my “cartoon/anime style” as you know it… it’s a few steps beyond. In fact, this is still a simple style, but enhanced with some smoother shading and one or two filters. This would be my digital style, if I was asked to do a cover art for something.
Used myself as model here. ^^

Always good to start with the basics, I always say! XD This is really awesome though! I love how you pinpoint the light source of the magic energy and really make the shading of the character work with the lighting. So beast-looking too, if I may add! ^^ An epic job well done!

Sure, the basics are just the beginning... ^^ And then... he will become a master soon! ;-)
Thanks a lot for the comment, glad you like it.
Yes, the light source and lighting was the most important aspect of this artwork!!

From the thumbnail I thought this was a young Reptile, apparently it is not as reading your description states, that and Reptile is more a warrior than a druid caster anyway. I like that this image has like an anime cartoon cell shading style to it, but seems it has a more gentle natural blur to the shading than sharp edges. The tiny flare is a nice accent of light as a source and it is well done. :) :thumbsup:

Heh, I thought this was Reptile too. I was surprised to see how much Larom resembles Reptile so much that they can be mistaken for the other.

ReptileCynrik Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012
Well, LAROM's snout is longer and thinner. ^____^"
But anyway, we can't see his ears so well... which distinguish him from REPTILE a lot!

At first I though it was Reptile from the small size, but then I saw differences, and after watching the description it was clear enough now.

Yeah this is definitly not your anime style as you used to do, but is at least a mix with some cell shadings and some little gradients. So is simple, but efficient too.

I like how you make the shapes of the characters in the darkness with a source of light ^ ^

Well, yeah... the chest part is different and his ears (which you cannot see so well). ^^"

"Some might think that they can outsmart me. Maybe. Maybe. But I did not meet yet anyone, who could outsmart a fireball." - of course if he will be able to create one.
I like mostly shadows here. Good work.
