Comm: Adonis by IrisDesert Comm: Adonis by IrisDesert
Speed paint commission for :iconsvelta:!



I had to blindly paint the majority of this since my eyes have been
irritated all last week, and I'm still not allowed to wear my contacts until
they completely clear up.

I hope you enjoy it! I will get a better look in the morning to see if there was
anything I missed, and maybe go back and fix the bg cause it's bothering me.

Awesome. Love the colors.
Kind of reminds me of something that could be from James Cameron's Avatar.

I like how you said "please reach me your skills" because now I imagine my skills in a cereal box on the
top shelf and you being unable to reach, pfft.

Thank you <3

I can sleep over any day, but I have work the rest of the week, and I have no clue what my schedule is next
week. You are still sleeping over on the 17th, right? I took the 18th off for the going away party.

Thanks Modo! I really wanted sort of a back view of him, but with his head turning to face the
viewer. Also, I wanted to get away from always drawing side views of the head.
