Nar- don't worry about it. I've had far too many of them in the past to be away from art for long :) It's something you get like... every 6 months or something. People will stop commenting and you start to doubt yourself. I try not to draw for my audience- that's how I get through it. It's nice to take requests though. People can get snarky though if your art gets stale or repetitive >.> One particular guy got really snarky about it 6 months back and stopped watching me on DA. It upset me alot cause the two of us were best friends. I come to the conclusion though that it doesn't matter what he thinks. It's a difficult thing to accept. Specially since my parents have only recently (in the last year) accepted art as something I'm good at and REALLY enjoy >.> I think that if I 'stopped' art, me stopping art would just be me hiding from the net and doodling forever. I give free supportive crit for any new artist cause I know how hard it is to step into art. There SO many talented artists out there. I'm humbled every day on DA with some people's talents. They need to learn that with practice and passion, their art will eventually be beautiful too, but it'll never be the same, which is why you can't compare your art to others.

Now if that aint art zen then I donno what is ;) IT's true though. People fight to compare my art to someone else, and once you have your own style, it happens to others too.

I'd like it better if it meant something more, like Graham's love at first sight was a little too epic to be believable, but as you said, it's fantasy. To me though, love at first sight applies to people that have MET the person they've fallen for. I guess though that the magic mirror works in mysterious ways :(
The magic mirror knows what Graham wants, lol.
Don't tempt me- I'd put Cassima in lingerie and Alexander in a thong XD
O_O
Oh gosh...
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

HAH! The mirror is a pimp! XD I love eet ^^

I came up with a lineart for the pic. IT's not a... happy romantic picture. I was listening to Chopin's Prelude No 15 as I drew it which is a bit of a sad song so it turned out sad.



I'm not sure how to finish it though. I'm considering having Cassima crying onto Alexander to tie into the song (It's called Raindrop- it's a pretty song :) ). It's basically a scene where Graham is off adventuring while everyone else is left behind waiting.

So yeah- no Alexander in a thong! Sorry to disappoint  :angel:

Ah...for a second there, I though Alexander's eyes were just closed, but this is based on TSL. Very well done!

Just kidding, of course; it's your art, so you should draw what you want. :)

 :o Beautiful yet again, girl! I'm an Alex and Cassima fan girl as well. And that's supposed to be not finished? It's pretty as it is. Is Alexander supposed to be comatose like in TSL or is this more in general fan picture?

Wow, very nice work! Heh, doesn't quite look like a comatose pic though ;) Cassima looks like she's putting the moves on Alex, to me at least!  :-*

Hehe, Katie, I don't think he's supposed to be comatose. I requested a picture like that.  Let me find my quote...

You should do a romantic Alex and Cassima portrait...maybe him holding her, or her consoling him after a nightmare.  Ooooh, I'm swooning just thinking about it...:sweetheart:

Eh - here's what the description on the dA page says:

Quote
So the scene is that King Alexander (Urgh- so use to calling him Prince :/ ) has fallen comatose to dark magic, leaving his wife, Queen Cassima there, waiting for Alexander's father to unlock him and his sister from their coma.

I really like it, in any case :D

(Posted on: January 01, 2011, 01:47:06 PM)


:yes: Don't know why I didn't think to send that to you sooner... :P
'Cause you were trying to keep every bit of Alexander to yourself, you brat!  Don't deny it! ;)

LOL, where, there that is. :)  Thank you for clearing that up!

It's such a beautiful picture.  I love it! <3 <3 <3

How 'bout something completely different--you should do a picture with Alexander rubbing Cassima's pregnant belly. ;D  You wouldn't be comparing it to anything, since it's 100% original, and we'd get to see what you come up with!

Wait, do Cassima and Alexander have a child in KQ7 or KQ8? Or are you just thinking wishfully? ;)

Cassima and Alexander are my favorite King's Quest characters, and pregnant bellies are adorable!  Combine the three are you've got an epic winning picture!

Wow- ok! Wasn't expecting so many responses O.O And I see the new forum layout! Yay! The fanart section isn't hidden now!

Ah...for a second there, I though Alexander's eyes were just closed, but this is based on TSL. Very well done!
So yeah- no Alexander in a thong! Sorry to disappoint  :angel:
The world thanks you. ;)
Just kidding, of course; it's your art, so you should draw what you want. :)

I was mostly kidding too XD I'm trying to think of a way to use it and I'm only coming up with silly ones so it likely wont happen ;)

:o Beautiful yet again, girl! I'm an Alex and Cassima fan girl as well. And that's supposed to be not finished? It's pretty as it is. Is Alexander supposed to be comatose like in TSL or is this more in general fan picture?

Yeah- it's not finished cause it's not properly shaded ^^; Yes, Alexander is comaed out in this one. The final will have Cassima crying- probably onto Alexander. The song I went off was a bit of a sad one. To me, this is the dedication of his love for him. A more powerful image in my eyes.

Thank you :) I like it the most right now too. My one of the family is no where near finished.When it is done it'll probably be my fav, but for now...
Wow, very nice work! Heh, doesn't quite look like a comatose pic though ;) Cassima looks like she's putting the moves on Alex, to me at least!  :-*

Well... If the moves were the prince with Sleeping Beauty :( I thought of making a comment like 'you can't kiss this one and bring him back to life.' It must be so frustrating for the family members to wait for others to complete their quests.

HAH! You know my DA! I can't hide now ^^ Sorry for the confusion. I thought it was apparent by Cassima's upset face :(

The full discription (without credits) is:- "Wow- I'm doing a HECK of alot of King's Quest fanart at the moment O.O

Anyways, not an 'official' scene in The Silver Lining, but on the Phoenix Online forums, it was requested a picture of these two in a romantic scene, and although it's not happy romantic, his is actually a scene that could've happened in the game.

So the scene is that King Alexander (Urgh- so use to calling him Prince :/ ) has fallen comatose to dark magic, leaving his wife, Queen Cassima there, waiting for Alexander's father to unlock him and his sister from their coma. This picture was inspired by Chopin's Prelude No 15- Raindrop [link] It's a beautiful, but haunting piano tune that fit the mood of the scene really nicely. I think in the final I may have her crying onto his eyes like rain drops, but I'm still deciding.

Posted a mildly coloured piece as I don't even know how I'm gonna finish colouring it yet :/ "

I had actually considered doing a pregnant Cassima one, but it didn't really fit the request. I assume it'll be post TSL though so that Alexander has woken since she's not pregnant in the game (Oh man- that would've made some WONDERFUL drama though O.O ) I may not be fast, but I'll see what inspiration hits me :)

Wait, do Cassima and Alexander have a child in KQ7 or KQ8? Or are you just thinking wishfully? ;)

Can't vouch for KQ8 as I haven't played it, but they're not featured in KQ7. It's not unheard of that it could've happened though. I'd feel pretty bad for Alexander though, cause a TRUCK tone of crap happens to him between his 18th and 21st birthday O.o As soon as he finds his family, his father becomes lethally sick, a year later they're kidnapped again, a month later lets say he chases after love at first sight, I assume Rosella doesn't girl out DURING Alexander's trip cause I assume Valanice would be worried for her son (also, the wedding doesn't include Edgar), donno when KQ8 happens, but that a hell of alot of life s*** to hit the fan in 4 years :( I'd say that after TSL, Alexander's probably going to be 'Well, what's worse than the Black cloak society. I can take them on with my new magic powers' and just bite the bullet XD

Or are you just thinking wishfully? ;)
This. :)

Cassima and Alexander are my favorite King's Quest characters, and pregnant bellies are adorable!  Combine the three are you've got an epic winning picture!

Lol- Sure :) It'll be VERY maternal- that's for sure ^^ I'll have to listen to some happier music with this one though >.>

Derp- update.

Don't have a clue what to do with the background. Nearly had a heart attack when my skin tone just all over the picture >.> Luckily I can colour over it and noone will know T.T

I really like the nice slick, colorful anime style you've got going.  Looks very polished.

I have to say though, what's with all the Alexander porn?  Lol...it seems just a tad excessive.  You're about 2 steps away from an Alex and Edgar makeout pic.  ;)
