New painting. I started to draw this few days ago, when I was bored...so at 9pm I started to doodle. I started to paint this as a joke...I never paint portraits on portrait format, so here I wanted to make something different. And wow...after a long time I drew completely with my style again. I guess I draw too many matte paintings It's drawn with colors from beginning till the end. For some details on his mask I was inspired from my necklace and his face I repainted twice. Hahaha...I change my mind a lot. You'll be able to see this in my video.
Something about him: His name is Ari and he can transform into a black swan. When he's in human form he usually wears black mask shaped as a swan's head and he have long black hair with white and gray locks. He's a silent person and he doesn't like company. He usually spend days, weeks, months, years... in his small house, far away from villages and people, near small lake. And he's Jin's brother.
I also recorded progress from this painting. You can check it on our YouTube here.
It's 1 hour and 46 minutes long.

I have to return to stare at this piece often. It's just so beautiful. The light through the beads on the skin . . . I just can't. It's so lovely.

Absolutely stunning... I love the atmosphere it creates
Amazing work, very expressive and mysterious.
Oh God is beautiful
This is one of the most beautiful pieces of artwork I have ever seen (but isn't all of your artwork like that?)! The way you blended lined art style and the realism is truly outstanding! His hair is absolutely beautiful, along with the feathers! And don't get me started on the mask! It's so detailed! I also adore his serene expression! I would like to know more about his story and see him more!
Love it !
This is so beautiful... the way the color reflects on his skin and how the fabric/feathers are floating making the picture look more realistic. My favorite thing about it is the emotion he protrudes with the calm expression... seriously you're amazing.
OMG this is outstanding.
The detail in this painting is utterly incredible! *_*
