I had to do it!!! I have actually attempted my first (partial) painting!
And it was the character of Tolkar Saratt that encouraged me to try it.
Please forgive me my imperfections and mistakes. I have never painted before--at least, not in any form I wasn't completely embarrassed of--and this is the first time I have ever dared to post such a thing publicly.
The face and hands were done in Prismacolor (non-water-soluble) pencils. The black part of the jacket was done with Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils, which I did use to paint with, the grey part was done with Derwent Graphitint watercolor pencils, and the clasp/amulet was done with Derwent Metallic pencils.
As to the significance of the drawing, and outfit...I may share that at another time, but the "AU" story that goes with it is not something I am ready yet to share publicly.
