So romantic :heart: even if I would have preferred to see him with Alaustriel. :giggle:

The anatomy study is accurate and the brushstroke used to create the hair makes the idea of soft and silk, one gets the impression that we can sink your hand in it. I've really appreciate the tonality used for the background, it remember a cold winder dawn in Icewind Dale with the sun who fight for shine across the clouds. Precisely, it's very close to theyr encounter in the first chapters of Legacy. :D

The lineaments of Drizzt's face are perfectly as I've always imagine, so "elven", and the skin tones result realistic even with all this gray scale. And Cattie-brie looks just like what she really is: a nordic young girl with the typical complexion of peaople with read hairs, not the adult (and american :XD: ) warrior seen in the comics of Devil's Due.

What else I can say. It's one of the best fanart about Drizzt and Cattie-Brie I've ever seen on DA, it exprime the true vision about these two characters without the stereotype of all the merchandising create around Salvatore's works.

Sorry if I've made some grammatical errors, I'm italian. ;P I've done my best, it's my first critique!

The Artist thought this was FAIR
92 out of 92 deviants thought this was fair.

I enjoy some qualities of Drizzt, but tend to see him as too whiny and emotive for my taste. However, if I could get him to do some noise other than whining, I think I could be convinced to forget all about the qualities I don't like in him. (admittedly, a battle cry or a sensual whisper come to mind, but... well, I can't be the only one. :XD: )

This painting makes me do that without any sound necessary.

I love the catti-brie/drizzt combo and you did something so amazing with them right here. It's gorgeous. Anatomy is so well done, colors just a few rich hues off of totally realistic, that I feel as if I could reach forward and caress their cheeks and tell them just how adorable they are together.

This is the most realistic drow face I've seen yet, so elvin and beautiful. His ears are great! The foreshortening is awesome! Drizzt's face is so well tilted, so believable. I'm green with envy (i tend to make drow/elf faces too angular) and yet oh so proud of another artists ability to capture him so exquisitely.

Catti actually looks a little bit like my red-headed cousin. She is definitely realistic enough. I like how you didn't feel the need to gussy up her eyes with any kind of make-up-like colors and shading. Women in that world would have to have a natural beauty and that's exactly what she has.

Their noses don't shy away from the little bump and flat on the bridge, their lips look absolutely kissable, which is good, because it looks like that's exactly what's coming next.

My only suggestion on this amazing piece of work would be to warm up their skin tones a bit. Though that pale of skin works on a red-head, and you can get away with the grey on Drizzt, it would be great to see you practice making the colors richer, deeper. I mean, you've got this much skill, you can bring them to life with these pale colors. Just imagine how amazing they will be with richer colors nearly putting blood flow under their skin!

Keep up the wonderful work!

I would have never imagined Catti-brie to look like that, yet its astoundingly beautiful and I shall never picture her any different than what I have seen here. Thank you.

*fan squeal* This is /beautiful/! I can't describe it, it's more than just painted beauty, you really got the emotion of both characters! And how you drew their faces is gorgeous! Catti-brie looks pleasantly feminine in a soft way yet still manages to have an aura of strength. Drizzt is both strong and kind. Loveee it!

Hmmm... I don't think the books ever mention the color of Drizzt's eyebrows, but they are almost always depicted as white, so to see them colored differently looks weird to me. Don't mind me though; this is still awesome, regardless!

jesscarpenter Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012
The BEST rendition I have seen of both Drizzt and Cattie-brie. You really brought out the heart and soul of both characters in this picture..

I have been searching for an image of Drizzt that really captures who he really is. I have seen good ones, but always..something was missing... features have been too hard.. or to soft.. or some quality overlooked or the features too fantastical to relate to. I think this image of him with Cattie-brie, in such a tender moment, is the image I have been searching for. He still looks elven, but his face is also just human enough for the viewer to relate to him emotionally. Not only that, but you created him in such a way that captures the true Drizzt, in his most comfortable, in his most vulnerable.. just being who he is with the girl he loves. None of the stoic walls he usually puts up, no pretenses, no focus on battle or enemies... just gorgeous!! Awesome, awesome job!!

Whenever I think of Drizzt now, I will think of your rendition of his face.. just amazing, amazing work!! You captured the softer side of Drizzt without making him appear too feminine or too whiny looking.. Also, It’s the same with Cattie-Brie.. you captured the softer side she shows when she is around Drizzt.. Yet, the faces are so believable that when I look at this I can still see both of these renditions become more serious, harder.. if they wanted too.. I can still see these same faces in a battle ready Cattie-Brie, and a battle ready Drizzt (with more serious expressions, of course). Wow, the longer I look at this picture, more of them just comes out.. I’m starting to wonder if you actually visited Faerun and met these two in person.. lol!!’s just stunning!

Easily the best I have ever seen, of both Drizzt and Cattie-brie!!!! Most elves are done really angular, but this is so much better and more realistic! And Cat is gorgeous, I like how you made her look young and soft instead of the tough warrior woman she is often depicted as. Love it love it love it!!!!
ChristineMarie7 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
WOW!! Truely beautiful!! I think it is the best piece of Drizzt and Catti-brie that I have ever seen!!! I think you captured them!! I can feel the emotions in Drizzt for Cattie-brie! Beautifully done! I love these two together!! Bravo!
