Nickolai for the Coronation by A3ulez Nickolai for the Coronation by A3ulez
I have finished it at last =) Because I chopped off his legs and refused to draw the huge palace in which the Russian emperor Alexander held his coronation. This is Nautical Nymph's character Nickolai-Dmitri Petrovich Volkov once again. I love drawing him, and I was especially happy with this version of him. His face is always Nicki... but it never seems to stay the same. This time is nose was a little beakier. That might be th einfluence of my Russian teacher. She has a neat nose. I want to paint her, but I don't now how to ask her for a picture =(

Anywho, for a background, I would have had to paint either massive shiny columns, shiny walls with artwork all around them, or a huge crowd of Russians dressed in military get up. I'm rather fond of blue, so the color blue made a star appearance alongside the unanimously decided best character of the Life ont he High Seas RPG.

Don't you love his cravat?

what's this about garrish colors? O_O the jacket and breeches and vest are beautiful, but I dunno about that green cravat =/ Matty should be shot for his fashion sense. ;)

Drawn and colored very well though, of course =P

I like it. and he certainly does look innocent for his general personality... he's just on good behavior.

=O!! I love the green cravat! I thought it matched very well :'( So you're shooting me, f00. And I mean Nicki enjoys wearing garrish colors when he's left to his own fashion sense ;) The St. Patrick's day get-up?

Well, glad you like it, whatever the case ^^

it's the best green that matches the suit overall, I do admit-- but not a color I would have picked for it =P nothing garrish about this picture though... and I don't think he'd ever step out of fashion. ;) He's too aristocratic.

But he's an actor too- thus the costumes.

Wowzer! ^_^! I knew I loved that jacket for good reason, whoo! Perfect detail on the vest and cravat!! =D And there's just something about his face that makes me giggle. Maybe it's just how cute he looks dressed up all fancy-pansy like that ;P All the colors complement him so well, wonderful! Instant fave ^^!

Hehe, ty ^^! yes, I think Matty must've put it together, since he's said time and again that Nicki likes to wear garrish colors that look terrible on him. He's such a goof ^^ I love his beaky nose! It makes him look so innocent for some reason, when you know he's so far from it ;)

You background slacker! Shame on you! ...But I do the same thing...so shame on me, too, I guess.

I like his clothing. It's very shiny. And hooray for characters with four names!

Backgrounds are overrated anyway. Let's rebel! Yeah, Nymph and Nickolai both have this strange fondness for multiple names. I think at one point, Nicki was running off with Nickolai-Dmitri Petrovich Chevalier Volkov Carton Dillon or some such, lol. I got her a book of names for her birthday, the fiend ;)
