I literally cried when I was done.

It's good to be back.


A realistic take on Dorian Pavus, flamboyant mage boy from the game Dragon Age: Inquisition. Dorian's specialization is Necromancy.
"Pavus" translates to "peacock"

0.3 and 0.5mm mechanical pencils + 4B regular pencil for the darker parts.
Drawn on A4 sized Hahnemühle Nostalgie paper.



Based on this marvelous reference image provided by Me4Fan :love:

Oh I do love this character, Amatus...

Mage boy Dorian from the Dragon Age: Inquisition games. I simply love him / his character.
The portrait is based on a ref which I will share soon enough, but I am adding and changing most of it to make it my own, and most importantly: to make him realistic.

Got lots of good guesses in this previous WIP (though some of them were hilariously inaccurate ahahaha):
Who could this be? GUESS by Cataclysm-X

Thank you for sticking around. I love you guys and gals.


PS SORRY for the low image quality. I usually take pics with my phone to share on Twitter. Ugh but I couldn't wait to show you guys some more.

I guess you either recognize him, or you don't!
A little hint: he's not real yet his voice is, which is smooth as silk.

PS: people who follow me on facebook are not allowed to guess xD

PS 2: I have this before so no, it is not Freddie Mercury..

I am sorry for my absence. Life has been ridiculous, but now that I actually finished several drawings, I -KNOW- I got work to share.
Thank you for ever being so patient with me.

Love xx Nic

Hello! My name is Nicolien, I'm 25 years old and, if you haven't noticed, I love drawing and music!

Ever since I was young I liked to draw and create things. Lately I love to portray the human face and forms with pencils only, and capture that person's essence on paper.

~~~~~~~~

One thing that I've learned through the years is that you can achieve anything if you truly believe in yourself. Enjoy the things that you love to do without being offensive to others. Devotion and respect is what matters.
