So Solemn, Cade by dreor So Solemn, Cade by dreor
(Please do not comment on the watermark; it's there for a reason.)

I first drew Cade way back in 2004. My skill wasn't that great back then, but I was proud of that small and simple image for a very long time. For a time, Cade was abandoned as my interest moved to other projects. But since beginning Aboideau with my dear buddy Tam, Cade has become dear to my heart yet again.

I redid that old image of her using the new coloring technique I've been teaching myself. I'm happy with the results.

Cade is not as creepy as this may seem, but I felt like it suited her solemn, earthen manner of being.

Wow, I love how you can still see it as your style but it's been refined so much through trial and error. Her mouth is a lot more...realistic and I love the face her nose is a downward pointing one rather than a generic curved-up one. If that makes sense.

I love her eyes - there's so much detail in the way you drew them, and then there's the color. Overall, nicely done^_^

Oh gosh, I really really like this character. I have since I glanced at her ref sheet... and this is a great, more detailed render of her!
Looooove it.
