The laguz blood gives the Branded unnatural powers. Beorc fear and distrust us because they can't understand those abilities. The laguz are even worse. They treat us like we're phantoms, refusing to acknowledge us… It's easy to hide among beorcs. You just cover the brand, avoid getting close to anyone, and never settle down. Pretending you're normal. The laguz are different. They can sense what we are... They have an instinct for it.

A gift to LadyNoise for the :iconfireemblem-club: Secret Santa! I apologize for the wait; it took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do for this. I definitely wanted to do one of the older games, and although you gave me an FE7 option, I decided on Stefan since you said he was your all-time favorite and the Branded characters are interesting, plus it’s easy for me to sympathize with desert hermits. :P I hope you like it!

Aqua, I need a tutorial on how to draw eyes like yours.
So... please? <3

Hmm, I've never really liked the idea of doing a tutorial on how to replicate the exact way I do something, because I like seeing people come up with their own interpretations of what they observe around them. I'm also not sure how I would make a full tutorial about this because I think the way I draw eyes is pretty simple; it's based on standard anime eyes, so it might be more helpful to look at one of the many tutorials already out there on that topic. I came to draw eyes the way I do after looking at various expressions in others' artwork (and occasionally in the mirror) and I think just studying faces and expressions would be a better teacher than any tutorial I can give, since I'm not sure what to suggest beyond starting out with the crosshair-over-the-face guidelines to get the eyes aligned properly, and paying attention to the distance between the features to see if they look balanced and appealing--it can help to draw circles where the eyes should be before you actually draw the eyes themselves, to make it easier to see whether they're in the right position.

Beautiful! I'm absolutely loving the color palette. Stefan is one of the coolest characters in PoR :D

Thank you very much, I'm glad you like the colors! :D Stefan's definitely an interesting character; his tendency to isolate himself is understandable given his past, though I feel sorry for him for cutting himself off from others because he didn't trust anyone to treat him decently.
