Xern Polito Resubmit.... by Wrinki Xern Polito Resubmit.... by Wrinki
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. :(

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

-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.

:( so sad that I have to do it though.
Seraphi91 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Agreed :c
Hopefully one day, there will be a way to completely stop thieves from stealing works of others.

Like some kind of image recognizing software that can tell when a particular picture is being uploaded onto sites without authorization from the original copyright holder. lol

WOAH that looks awesome! I'm in LOVE with the hood, it turned out great and really completed the look.

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. ^^
