My critique would be aimed mostly to the chosen gear and weaponry - it's natural that countries from former ostblock use AK-based weapo...

'Orava Castle'
This is a study I did yesterday, of the Orava castle in northern Slovakia. I didn't adhere fully to the original photo, so a few buildings are different or in different angles, but in the big picture I tried to catch the essence :)
Teivos Thala 2018
This is a redesign of the general clothing and character of my Teivos (and a little extra with the character of Thalathis ). Since I didn't really draw him "in suite" for quite some time, I decided to make a little overhaul and make his appearance a bit more coherent!

Also, I decided to give them finger boots, cause that's much better for walking than standard boots xD

Styg 2017
An up-to-date picture of one of my older characters, Styg Karlova. I used reference for the anatomy of her upper half (excluding the head) and tried a more split way of rendering with separate layers for various lighting and shading types as well as a defocused background to guide the attention to her, who is in foreground :)

Swords in the wind!
For some time I wanted to draw a nice fencing position, such as they can be seen in the old fencing books. I took inspiration from the illuminations from the book of Joachim Meyer "Gründtliche Beschreibung der freyen Ritterlichen und Adelichen kunst des Fechtens in allerley gebreuchlichen Wehren, mit schönen und nützlichen Figuren gezieret unnd fürgestellet" - the way the people were portrayed from the side (to make the position well visible) and with renaissance-era buildings in the background. I took some liberties as to make their clothing historically incorrect and putting Bremer Rathaus in the background :P

Characters are :icona-teivos: and :iconthalathis:

Devious Journal Entry

Fri Dec 23, 2011, 12:25 PM

Tagged by :iconthalathis:

1. What's the meaning behind your DeviantArt name and why?

Teivos... when the name began its use, I was (obviously) kinda obsessed by basically anything connected with Soviet union. Go and find out the connection, it's not that hard ;)

2. What fandom were you obsessed with when you joined and what are you into now?

Hmm, must have been Half-life and anything army-related. By that time it still could have been the Elder Scrolls phenomenom. Now it's... eh. Elder Scrolls again x) and still army related stuff. Hard to say if I'm really obsessed with anything now. I could say Star Trek, but not so hardcore to go and argue if Enterprise could beat an Imperial Star Destroyer or not.

3. How many watchers do you have now?


4. Name 3 of your favorite artists on DA.

:iconpechschwinge: because you have a huge scoop of Talent which you use to make good art,
:iconkirsch-vanderwit: because people who know how to use paint and brush to make art are rare these days,
:iconreptilecynrik: because you created a very sympathetic fantasy universe.
And of course, I have more than just those three as "favorite artists"! ;)

5. Do you comment, fave or both?

Lately mostly fave. Which is a shame D: Should be more naggy and comment more!

6. Do you participate in clubs' contests here on DA?

Yes, you can check it out on my devART page somewhere. But I'm not very active lately.
EDIT: Duh... I should read properly. No, I don't participate in contests, but I am in some groups

7. What is your most popular submission?

According to the statistics on the Dev page,… outnumbers all others. I wonder why. Like, okay, it's a very precise rendition of an existing photo, but there's nothing more to it!

8. What are your favourite non-anime TV shows?

Prison Break atm. Battlestar Galactica (the new one). Robot Chicken? ;)

9. What are the things you wish you could draw better?

I'd ask this differently: What are the things you wish you'd be more motivated to draw? Cause then I'd say complex pictures with lots of details which can be considered "finished". I've too much sketches and all sorts of other stuff which is largely unfinished because the process of making a picture usually takes longer than my motivated phase D:

10. Summer or winter?

Summer because it's warm and nice and I don't have to wear 10 kgs of clothing and my feet don't freeze. And it's sun from 6 am to 9 pm. Winter... because it's snow. Mostly. And it makes sense to drinking hot mead :D

11. Tag 0 people!

Damn, who altered the last question? :P

  • Listening to: In Extremo
  • Reading: Heavy Tanks by Ivo Pejcoch
  • Watching: The screens of my PC

A-Teivos Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2017  Student Interface Designer
Ah yes, that one!
Well yes, that shouldn't be a problem! Do you have some reference and some idea how you would like it to look like? Would you like a sketch, a shaded sketch, or flat colours or a fully shaded picture? What kind of budget are you aiming at?
