Against the Fall - Collab by giz-art Against the Fall - Collab by giz-art
Last year for my birthday, I've commissionned the awesome :icondapper-owl: to draw one of my favorit OC, Liam.
I received few months later this breathtaking piece :


and the kind autorisation to try to color it.
I've wait for october to color this one, to get inspired by my favorite part of the year, between mabon and samain, and I chose some very warm color to change a bit from the traditionnal evergreen pallet I work with this caracter.
I did my best not to spoil this beauty, and quite fast I chose to make something quite simple, because complexes lighting here would have drown the purity of the lines.
The coloring has some flaws, I know, but I finished it because it pleased me this way and this was the main and first purpose of this pic.
(Remember Kuzco ? A gift from me to me... That's it :3 )

And now a bit about the title...

Liam went into exile of the sacred forest to keep the magical source alive and maintain the dome over Paris.
But the Forest is alive and nourrishs herself with his spirit, and especially his emotions. It changes its aspects depending of the sidhe's mood.
Most of the time the Forest shows a summer face, because Liam stay this sweet and generous temper he was when he ruled at the Court.
But melancholy can occur. Sometimes the Prince feels a bit sad, a bit alone and the forest drink his emotion to change into a more autumnal feel.
Fall is dangerous, Fall leads to Winter. Liam knows that Winter could break the link between the Forest and the real world, so even if a part of himself would enjoy to merge into the autumnal beauty of the forest, when he sees the sun decline, the light changing and the leaves growing copper and gold, he fights against himself and against the fall.


Lines from the over talented :icondapper-owl:
Liam and the Paris in Vitro chronicle belongs to me.

J'ai l'impression que c'est terriblement triste à chaque fois que je parle de Liam.
Mais bon comme dirait Morgan, "Qu'il assume." ^____^

Thank you very much my Lord.
Even if this character is a bit a ghost of the past from my old chronicle I'm still very attached to my prince in exhile.
And Hunter made something soooo wonderful from him.... :heart:

I'm really glad that it pleases you :heart:

C'est trop beaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaau! ;A;
Aussi bien le dessin, que la colo, que l'histoire qui va avec! X3
T'as fait du super boulot! Je suis particulièrement fan de l'utilisation du violet pour les ombres, ça donne un petit côté palpable à sa peau, tout en accompagnant à merveille les couleurs chaudes. <3

Nyyyuuuuu.. Merchiiiiii :iconohalrightplz:

Ah tu le vois encore le violet toi ? C'est marrant justement sur mon écran je me disais que j'avais perdu tout le violet avec les réglages de contrastes et les filtres... J'vai avoir des surprises si je regarde sur un autre écran moi XD
Contente qu'elle te plaise ma blonde perdue dans sa forêt... :3
ça reste quand même un super chouchou
(lui il a même eu le droit à sa poupée de chiffon !!!... Oui je sais les budgets on méchamment explosé entre Opéra et In Vitro où on est passé de la poupée de chiffon à la BJD XD )

Ben en fait, je le vois clairement sur mon écran annexe, mais c'est vrai que sur l'écran de mon portable c'est pas vraiment flagrant. C'est chiant ces changements d'un écran à un autre... OTL

Ha ha, oui je me souviens de la poupée de chiffon, tu nous l'as montré quand on est venus! C'est sûr qu'avec le passage à la bjd, non AUX bjdS, In vitro se retrouve avec un budget de block buster américain là! X'D

Depuis que j'ai mon nouvel écran je sais plus comment mes couleurs ressortent...
Va falloir que je fasse une impression pour me rendre compte.
Tes deux posters risquent d'être mes étalons ^ ^ (et cette image aussi d'ailleurs.... :3 )
