Rest and Relaxation part 2 by MikeDimayuga Rest and Relaxation part 2 by MikeDimayuga
commish for chris

never played dragon age, though i've always been meaning to. the main problem is i've been spoiled by mass effect, DA's KOTOR-style gameplay seems awfully slow. weird because KOTOR and its sequels are some of my most favorite games. i think i'll play it eventually.

its a little frustrating looking for a definitive look and costume for these characters. oh don't get me wrong, it's cool for the game, but not so much when you want to draw them. so apologies to those who love 1:1 detail.

DA2 is more quick in battle styling and cleaner in communication wheels. The story is not as good to some, but the first one is kinda simple storywise. "Big bad, must kill." (Again, no offense to those who love the plot over characters)

So you've never played DA:O... well, you did a great job, those two characters have really this nature (Leliana on the right is flirty and Morrigan on the left argues at it xD).

thanks! and it was pure coincidence that i got it right. :D

i assumed morrigan would be the flirty one since she's showing more skin!

All gamers expect it, and it's not been so.
She has a sharp tongue, is very cynical and complains about anything, especially about the lesbian relationships of the main character (overall with the redheaded girl of your drawing):D
However, we players have always been very happy to see the "exposed skin" of Morrigan, lol.

gotcha. it helps they were both fun to draw. and researching costumes was a blast. my only frustration was finding a default signature costume. google images had thousands of pictures and every one was a little bit different from the other. leilana moreso than morrigan.

The colours are really nice :) I do wish that you had written the dialogue you imagine them saying in the description, but I suppose it can be really fun to try and fill in the blanks on our own :3

as for the dialogue, its been so long i've forgotten. mostly its them just saying some bitchy banter. ;D
i didn't bother writing it since i doubt people would bother reading it. haha!

No worries! To be honest, I could have sworn it was the redhead (I haven't played the game in FOREVER, so pardon me for forgetting the name) making a pass at Morrigan, and Morrigan questioning what she was doing by their expressions and pose XD

I always read things like that, so don't doubt it ever again :P

That's freaking fantastic. Now I really hope that you'll pick up DA2 and draw some of the ladies from that game! If you enjoyed ME, DA2 should appeal to you a lot more than DA:O.

concept design-wise DA is as good as, if not better, than ME. certainly, characters in DA are more diverse in appearance.

as for drawing people from origins, well it sounds interesting and i hope i get a commish for them soon. otherwise, i got lots to draw as it is...

just for my info, who are the top 2 popular female characters in origins?

:iconcaneandie:
caneandie Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2011
I would probably request a DA2 commission, not so much interested in DAO. I think you already got the top 2 female characters in Origins. In DA2, it'd probably be F!Hawke/Isabela/Merrill.

If only Leliana had that armor in game instead of just the promotions and ads. Awesome work, they both look great. I just got DA:O from a friend and have been playing it ever since, it's pretty fun. Love the characters and the story, gameplay isn't so bad, and graphics are nice. It does need a hearty pc to play though.

yeah, it was hard as heck to find one definitive costume for her! having never played the game, i didn't know what her "base" look was, or what configuration was the most popular. i just had to do an amalgamation of 2 or 3 different costumes (and some stuff i made up).

morgana was way easier to do.

i love bioware, but the game looks way slower than mass effect (from all the videos i watched). i dunno, it just didn't grab me. i loved their older games (KOTOR 1 and 2, jade empire) but i think i just got so used to mass effect's more advanced, faster game play.

thanks for taking the time to chat.
