Loki - King of Asgard by Quelchii Loki - King of Asgard by Quelchii
Finally I finished this mixed media drawing (colored pencil, marker, multiliner, white ink) of Loki (Tom Hiddleston). I'm very happy with the result, but my scanner killed the sky a little bit (it doesn't like the color blue + stars and adds weird lines, so it looks much better on paper)... I hope that you like it as well! :) That's the first time that I tried to combine so many reference pictures to create something new. I really like to draw details, but I think that I have to add a point to my "never draw this again list": Asgard (especially the city and the Bifrost / rainbow bridge)
Update: I tried to edit/rescue the colours with Photoshop. Looks still much better on paper. I'll try to edit the sky later...
Update2: I replaced the scan with a photo. Sky looks better and skin contrast + colors are more realistic and it looks more like the actual drawing (still not perfect).

Thor 2 spoiler: At the end of Thor 2 Loki is alive, disguised as Odin on the throne of Asgard and the Tesseract is in Asgard, too. So I think this could be a movie poster for Thor 3. That's why I wanted to add fire and ashfall to the sky at first. This would fit to Ragnarök. :D I really hope that they announce the movie release date soon... By the way: I drew him with short hair, because I prefer it and I don't want to believe that they have no hairdressers in Asgard! :grump: 

I used many reference pictures: screencaps of the movies "Thor, 2011" (short Loki hair), "The Avengers, 2012" (Tesseract/blue cube + armor in deleted scenes) and "Thor The Dark World, 2013" (2x Asgard sky, lower part of Gungnir/golden staff), a Thor 2 movie poster (Odin with Gungnir), a Thor 2 promo picture/still (Asgard) and a photo of Tom Hiddleston as Loki on Comic Con (SDCC 2013)

Loki - King of Asgard by Quelchii shows a lot of dedication to detail and accurate character portrayal. ( Featured by Lyricanna )
:iconoowildcherryoo:
Du weißt, wie wundervoll ich deine Bilder finde – dennoch möchte ich dieses mal gern eine Kritik dafür schreiben, da du diese Option immerhin eröffnet hast :) Auch wenn ich nur ein Laie bin...

Das Erste, was mir auffällt, ist die Tiefe des Bildes, sowie die unglaubliche Detailverliebtheit. Die Kleidung – jede kleinere und größere Falte und jeder Schatten – wirkt, als könne man sie sogleich anfassen. Der Stoff hat Struktur und verschiedene Schattierungen, wie man es von „realer“ Kleidung kennt und macht es dadurch einfach zu etwas Echtem. Selbst die Goldaufschläge sehen so aus, als könnte man sie anfassen und zeigen kleine Verzierungen und Erhebungen auf.
Vielleicht wirkt dadurch aber Loki's Hand, die den Stab hält, etwas flach. Sprich, nicht ganz so lebendig, ebenso die Hand mit dem Würfel – sie sieht aus, als stecke sie in einem dünnen Stoffbeutel – und der Kopf. Wobei trotzdem auch hier gesagt werden muss, dass kleine Fältchen, Schatten und Licht hervorragend gesetzt worden sind.
Zum Hintergrund: Atemberaubend. All die unzähligen Türme mit deren Schatten und Lichteinfall allein muss schon Stunden an Arbeit gekostet haben. Ich hätte vermutlich keinen Nerv dazu gehabt und wäre schlichtweg verzweifelt. Der Bifrost ist detailliert mit den vielen einströmenden Farben. Das Wasser und das Gebirge erinnern mich an eine Postkarten-Landschaft, wo man nur zu gern selbst einen Fuß hinsetzen möchte. Auch hier finde ich, dass Schattierungen und das Spiel von Licht und Schatten dem Bild etwas überaus Reales geben.
Auch wenn dein Scanner den Himmel ein wenig erblassen lässt, so finde ich dennoch, dass darin Bewegung steckt. Wolken – ob dicke, flauschige oder zarte, fedrige – treiben darüber hinweg und hier und da erkennt man den ein oder anderen Stern.
Alles in allem gefällt mir dieses Bild persönlich wirklich sehr, sehr gut und ich freue mich auf weitere grandiose Werke von dir.
Auch wenn Teile davon nun auf deiner „Nie-wieder-zeichnen-Liste“ stehen ;)

:iconsidekick-lover:
You claim this drawing looks better on paper... but honestly, I can't imagine it being any better than this. How could this possibly get any better?! It's practically a photo! *erupts in fits of artist jealousy*
Anyway, on a more professional note: I'm impressed most of all by your displays of shadow and light. The lights gleaming off his staff and neckpiece, the shadows in the folds of his clothes--they're so REALISTIC. You used colored pencil for this, right? You used PRECISELY the right colors in the right places to imitate the effect of real light on a body. That's an impressive ability and you should continue to show it off!
You've also paid such attention to detail. From the watery reflections of Asgard to the glow of the Tesseract off Loki's hand, you've captured all the qualities a real life image would have. Your skill in depicting water and light reflections is surpassed only by your diligence in depicting ALL such reflections that would occur. (hopefully that makes sense.)
What really adds to this piece, though, is the visible stroke marks (most notably on Loki's face, and making up the sky). The color isn't smooth and continuous, it's clear that it's the result of many combined lines of color. However, far from detracting from the piece, I think it enhances its--well, its "artiness." It makes it clear that this was done BY HAND, painstakingly, little stroke by little stroke over hours of toil. It shows not only the attention you clearly gave to this piece, but also your skill--for the colors certainly aren't sketchy or poorly-flowing. In the sky especially, every stroke was put down purposefully to create the swirling, converging appearance of an interstellar atmosphere. That effect differentiates it from a typical Earth sky, and brings home the fact that this is on another planet.
I wish I could find some improvement to suggest, but I truly can't. This piece is... perfect. Literally, perfect. So perfect... *has another envy fit*
