Gate of Mists - Araphis by silvestris Gate of Mists - Araphis by silvestris
Araphis, white angel, thrice-cursed guardian bound to Alaeitha in her quest.

Another of the Gate of Mists characters - you've seen him before as Alaeitha's white cat. This is (one of) his more human form(s).
He was extremely peeved Nuru got a proper CG and not him, so I figured I'd draw him as well.

Not entirely pleased with the final result - things look a bit lopsided in places, but considering how little art I manage to get done these days I'm really happy just to have drawn something... ^^;

Media Used: Corel Photopaint 9, Wacom Graphire tablet.
Character and image are silvestris (me) and may NOT be used by anyone else. No steal.

I simply adore fantasy art, and this is a wonderful addition to my collection!! You're a very gifted artist! Keep up the good work. NOW, I gotta go peruse your gallery to see what other goodies I can find! By the way....I discovered you via Anj's journal and a feature of some of your work in one of her journals! :)

O__O Haaaaaaaair....I adore his hair. Love it to bits. I love how you draw hair--it always looks so light and lifelike. Love the markings, too--they're quite mysterious. The only thing I'd change is the fact that his chin seems a little flat, but that could just be because of the angle, so don't listen to me...

^___^ I :heart: it, I do.

yes, we love that you're able to draw anything now. and a character all in white. what a treat. though i prefer dark characters myself. :D The symbols under his eyes might have made him look tired, but they don't actually. It's kind of surprising.

Oooh...is he Egyptian inspired? I love those upside-down ankhs, almost like a symbol of 'anti-life', ie death...but I love the Egyptian inspired ankh and collar, and the ethereal silvery glow. And the hair-you do every single strand of hair! I'm always amazed by this...
