The Librarian by fayrenpickpocket The Librarian by fayrenpickpocket
Put this on my tumblr a while ago but finally putting it on here. The Librarian from an old Gaia CI. I remember when designing him for this illustration I was also making an effort to ensure it would translate into a nice item set, which added to the challenge~ @u@

I went through a period after finishing this where I didn't like it anymore, the flaws just seemed too... loud. Which is why it took me a long time to share it. But now that I've had some time away from it I can appreciate it again. XD Do you guys do that too? Of course, some of my finished stuff never comes back around to the 'this is okay' category and stays firmly planted in the 'ugh' zone.

I actually think this is really good! I love the colors and his hair is awesome!! I've had times though where I hate an art piece I've done and don't put it up until like months later!

I know what you mean, I get it too, but on a whole other level since you are thousand times more talented than I am XD once again, amazing picture, the costume is so amazing (I study history of costume so I am really into it XD) and the colours are great :3

There might be a slight problem with the thumb, but meh, you know... hands... XD the curse of all artists.

I love your art, I really do!

Hahaha that definitely happens to me. The worst thing for me is when I actually post an "ugh" drawing on dA because I have to and it ends up being super-liked or something. I end up getting mad because I think there are better ones in my gallery. XD

Anyway I like the art you did here. Even with flaws or whatever it's a cool design--plus the colour choices are super awesome in my opinion.

That's actually one of my fav CI pics, even though I never could afford the CI *Shrug* i like them for the pics and their stories more then the items half the time anyway. It always depends on the item.

That thick, chunky sort of painted look is so nice. Gives everything this great sense of depth and texture. Wish I could pull it off myself!
(and yeah, I do that too! I'll hate something, then come back and think "oh... it's... not -that- bad," haha)
