Xern Polito Resubmit.... by Wrinki Xern Polito Resubmit.... by Wrinki
Update...
Art theft/reposting/recolouring on this image has gotten a bit ridiculous. I keep getting word that people are using this pic for their Rp accounts all over the place. Hence the watermark on the face. Sorry to people who are just innocent viewers, but this picture is a commission. It's not fair that someone paid for it, so that you could go reposting it and using it for free. Hopefully this final watermark will discourage future snatchers. :(
/Update

Little update note: This image is of a MALE turian. I know he's cutesy and looks feminine...that's my bad. BUT PLEASE read the description first before making comments like "she's cute" etc. I'm sure we've all seen our share of effeminate males by this point. lol
/update

-Commission gift for :iconmeken: of her awesome OC Xern Polito. I very much enjoyed drawing this one... I tried a new technique with it. Instead of sketching, refining, and then colouring the refined lines, I tried simply making a really blobby solid sketch and then slowly fleshing it out bit by bit. I really enjoyed that method... really gave a different feel to the pic.

A note for everyone: This character is copyrighted to :iconmeken: Do NOT repost anywhere without first contacting both Meken and I. If you're posting it in such a way that it links back to the original image, then that's okay, but please do not upload it anywhere without asking permission and giving credit.

...Every time I see a piece of your work on my deviations list, I always get excited to see what new form or eye-catching style you've got to show. This one is no exception! Your take on fan art is simply stunning, especially since you make many beautiful examples through commissions of other peoples fan-made characters. This one in particular catches me due to the character's features, as well as the details on the clothing and armour. The shading is well done, mainly since you can obviously tell where the source comes from and just how much of it reaches the character's body. The stance just makes the character seem living and not a stoic figure painted up.

In short, you take Mass Effect style to a whole new level, and I wouldn't be surprised if you got hired to do concept art for Bioware or any company for that matter.
What do you think?

Totally understandable to put a watermark over the face. Hopefully it'll keep the art thieves and such away.

Drawing a turian in a hood was a pretty hairy challenge at the time XD. In the end I think it turned out a bit too big.....makes Xern look like he has a giant head in there, but other than that, I am happy with it. ^^

I love your work, really ! I don't want to start a polemic or something, but I would have really loved to see your work without watermark, even a very small image or something. Here I can't even se his face correctly :(

For snatchers/stealers etc, I always use that technique : "show watermarks on big images" and "don't show watermark on small images". Small = 300x200 for exemple. So your work is respected.

Yeah, I know. The watermark is meant to be in-your-face and obnoxious as a statement to everyone, letting them know that's just what happens when there's too much thieving. Unfortunately not showing the watermark in the small view isn't really an option, as many thieves just clip out the face, and use it for a small icon.
I am trying to be fair though....... Thus far I've only stuck ugly watermarks over the faces of pics that get stolen the most. The ones that are left alone only have the standard DA watermark over them.

Yeah......I may have made it slightly too bold looking at it again...but I suppose it counts as a statement. "If you keep taking this stuff, this is what happens!"
u_u;; Now I know why so many artists out there take down all their stuff after a while.

owo thank you. I do apologize for the big nasty watermark though. It's pretty ugly.

Dropping that subject though..... now that I'm seeing this pic again (I haven't looked at it in a while) I really wanna redraw Xern in this outfit XD. Too bad he's all buff now, and not tiny and adorable like he used to be. Not that I mind, but this look works better for a skinny person.

Man it really sucks about the art theft on Facebook, I guess I'm somewhat glad my art isn't popular enough to actually get attention like this.

^^ even with the watermark it is still a beautiful piece of art!

It does suck... I just hope that over time, people start to realize that you shouldn't be using images like this for your profiles. I don't mind tumblr and such, since that's not really stealing, but the rp sites bug me (and REALLY bug the owners of the OC's)

It's much easier to steal something that's just lying around with no watermark on it, as oppose to paying out of your pocket (not to mention tons of people don't have paypal, and for some reason the idea of setting it up seems terrifying and complicated)

True it is, but I guess I'm just one of those people that if I want to show off my oc I want them to look like they do in my head and not a recolor job of someone else.

I know I was a little put off when thinking of making a paypal, but then again I didn't have any money to speak of (college and all) Now I just wish I had more money so I could get some commission from some of these really awesome artists, like you for example x3

In other words is it just me or are those leg spurs or what ever they are a little bit to thin and far too tilted to the back, otherwise I don't see any problem!

Ah, but he's green black and tan. XD. Unless the colours on your moniter are screwed.
mmmmmmmm Mebe his spurs are a little thin....but he was kinda supposed to be a small femmy turian. A bishi version of a turian. Which is why 90% of the comments say "she's pretty!" lol
So I did make them small on purpose haah
