The Cyclops and the Princess by aridante The Cyclops and the Princess by aridante
A drawing I recently completed; I wanted to do a more classical fantasy take on your typical fairy tale, so instead of a Knight in Shiny Armor, you have.....him. :) (Smile)

Simply outstanding. So much detail. Great work.

Wow...ummm, I just can't find words to describe it. Splendid and amazing. :wow:

Haha...but I think it's really nice to not think of a Knight in Shining Armor like most people do. Although, I would still like a handsome prince, I think this still has it's cuteness in someway. It looks like a heart-warming scene. It also has a hint of "forbidden-love" factor in it and I love forbidden-love themes. :D

oh my, this is outstanding

Its interesting there isn't an actual story like this, unless their is :O I like what seems to be a pirate-esque design you gave the cyclops here, Awesome! :D You draw very well.
ThunderYeti Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2004
Wow, great contrast, and composition. If the cyclops were alone on the page, I would still perceive him as massive. Great depth, and fabric depiction!! :+fav: :+fav: !!!
keep it UP!!

So, I favorited this over two years ago, and while looking through my favorites today, I noticed that I've never left a comment. That was quite the oversight on my part, since it is STILL a favorite of my favorites.

So, as much as I love your painted work, I think that it is your pencil drawings that really make me happy. I'm a sucker for a great drawing, and you do great drawings. Nothing too technical about why I like it. It's just a very strong piece. The lighting is inspiring. The texture of the cyclopses clothing is doubly inspiring. Most cyclopses always seem to have unnaturally built faces, but the way you've drawn this one-eyed one, it looks natural. That is quite an achievement in my book.

So, from someone who has been watching your gallery silently for years, I thank you for this piece, and for every other one of your wonderful pieces. You are more than just 'quite a talent'. You obviously work very hard at it, and that's what I admire most in your work.

Hilarous with a giant as the nobel knight :D haha amazing creativity and the image itself is amazing. The shading looks real good.
The only thing that bothers me is the cross stitches on his shoulder, they look a bit to 2D compared to the rest of the image.
Oh and by the way, is the princess making a happy or scared face? It's a bit hard to tell.
Great work! :clap:

nothing seems out of place

i wish i had seen this in colour because it's such a great image and considering how well you handle watercolour that would just be stunning

First off this is an amazing piece of much detail with only a pencil. As I sit here I realized why people don't view/comment on my work as much as I'd like...I'm just not talented. This is so beautiful ( you may have wanted)...

I love your style , a century ago "The Strand Magazine" or `"Pearson`s" would have given you a contract as an illustrator like a shot ! All the Best

Good tech/pencil work,

think this one would have come better in ink,
little importance given to princess, and the head also looks a
little small,

rest is perfect
