Knighting by DarklordIIID
Knighting
I got the idea for this awhile back but wanted to incorporate a few soldiers, which turned out to be the real sticking point. Who knew they could be so hard to find.

Anyways, I recreated the throne room in higher fidelity, then added better lighting while trying to keep the ambience of the original throne room.

Enjoy!

Palutena Pinup by DarklordIIID
Palutena Pinup
First solo piece with the lovely Palutena!

Not much to say here, there's elements from many old pieces (as there are in many of my works) recombined and re-used to make something new.

Also no new techniques at play, just kinda...made a thing. ;P

Enjoy!

In the Barn by DarklordIIID
In the Barn
Nice little two shot of Ilia and Hena enjoying some private times in the barn out back. ;)

Had a lot of fun playing with the displacement maps in use on the stone, as well as the lighting for the scene. Doing anything involving dark areas with limited light sources is always a challenge when you'd actually like to, you know, see something.

And please spare me the Ilia rantings, I'm not interested. I think she's cute and a great feature, deal with it.

Note: A more interesting version will be put up on Tumblr. :)

Twilight Beauty V2 by DarklordIIID
Twilight Beauty V2
Am I so beautiful you've no words left?

I will never, ever get tired of doing Midna solos. She's the prettiest character I've ever encountered, bar none except perhaps Liara from Mass Effect. In either case though, Midna always looks at home in these pretty little outdoor areas.

Interesting note: this is actually a reused scene. First one to comment which deviation this was first featured in might get a request... ;)

Update: Andr-uril got it! He'll receive the request. :D
Thanks for looking!

So Just When I Was Taking a Break...

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 23, 2014, 5:25 PM
Financial apocalypse.

Not really, but enough pain to warrant bringing back commissions. Grace and I have hit some rocky times; we had to spend about $7,000 on dental work for the two of us (mostly her, she was in debilitating pain) and it's put a severe strain on our budget. So, for a limited time, new rates on commissions:

- Solo pics: $50.
- Flat rate $80 for two characters in a detailed environment. 
- Flat rate $100 for up to four characters in a detailed environment. Add $30 for a totally custom outdoor background fitting the theme. Rendered at 5K (5120 x 2880), you get the full resolution rendering with all post work. Yours to share, print, whatever you fancy. May be DA appropriate or not, up to you. :) And of course you may remain anonymous.

Slot 1: Available.

Thanks very much for your continued support. I'm only taking five for now to keep the workload manageable, so jump on it while you can. :D Contact me via email or DeviantArt Note.

Here is something you will want to see (be wary that most of the words are in the dragon language according to the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.)

I saw all those pieces long before you put your valentine things over them. (One of them I commissioned)

That's not your art, by the way. And seeing as you didn't make the art underneath, I can't help but wonder how much of the afterwork you also didn't make.

That's not cool dude.
