Before the Band stops playing by Nero749
Before the Band stops playing
*tries to think of excuse for painting this besides current obsession with these two*
Seriously though, I just wanted to paint Solas and Lavellan dancing and I found this tiny salsa reference:…

I do actually like the Winter Palace outfits, but wanted to put Lavellan in a dress for once. I debated about whether I should paint her with her arm still intact, or a prosthetic, but went for her just as she is after Trespasser, as I realised I hadn't actually done that yet.
I should start planning backgrounds...
Also, I have no idea what the fabric behind Solas is, in my head it was an extension of the costume so let's just leave it at that.

There's a bit of a close-up on my tumblr post for this:dragonageinquisitionart.tumblr…)
Dragon Age: Solas and Lavellan Romance Cards by Nero749
Dragon Age: Solas and Lavellan Romance Cards
I'm submitting these together because they're a pair, and as I used the same background for the two of them, it seems appropriate to have them as one submission.

I do love the style of the cards in Dragon Age Inquisition and considered just doing a romance card for Lavellan in that style, but we all know I am a sucker for art nouveau so here we are. And because that meant Solas' card would not fit with Lavellan's card I had to do one for him as well.

I got the idea for Lavellan's card (the only one I planned on) from this piece of… But having just the head of the statue looked weird and so I changed it a bit.

Solas' card has Lavellan represented by the golden Halla. Because I like to think she gets called Hanal'ghilan by the Dalish (who believe in her), rather than the Herald of Andraste. I mean it makes sense that they would have a different name for her, and especially a name that would reclaim her as one of the people. ("It is said that she comes to the people in a time of great need." Come on, it would be perfect.)
It changes everything, but it can't by Nero749
It changes everything, but it can't
So this started after I triggered that banter with Cole and Solas after the break up scene with Solas, and you know how Cole says " You're real, and it means everyone could be real. It changes everything, but it can't." That line just kills me. And then I came across this picture of a production of Twelfth Night (…), and originally I used that as a reference for the pose but I kinda forgot and now it hardly looks like it, but I like it.
Why am I such a sucker for all the drama in their story?
Dread Wolf Take You by Nero749
Dread Wolf Take You
This is based on an idea I had about Trespasser way back when the trailer was released. I assumed it would definitely be the final chapter of the Inquisitor's story and I figured their story would end with a choice where they either cut of their arm to save themselves or they would die. And I figured any Inquisitor in a romance with Solas would get a third option, namely of coming with him to the Crossroads (where the anchor would be stable - no idea why I thought that though).

Then of course I played Trespasser so I let go of that idea. But I still really liked it, so now, months later I painted it anyway.

(Also if the Inquisitor isn't in DA4 after all that build up, that would be such a waste.)
Shepard and Vakarian (on Illium, maybe) by Nero749
Shepard and Vakarian (on Illium, maybe)
More practice with that tutorial thing I mentioned. The background reminds me of Illium kinda, though I had no intention of actually having Illium in the background. This mainly started because I needed something to practice and I saw this flycam screenshot of the scene in the Citadel in ME3 where they have the shooting competition, and apparently he had his hand on her face during that scene (well the romance version), but they don't actually show that in game, which is a shame.

I will now describe myself through the medium of stamps!

And finally, feel free to bother me on Tumblr:

For prints, cards, shirts, iPhone cases and what-not of my work, please visit:
Hello deviants!

My exam week is finally over... and I have some time, so I thought I'd open up commissions for the holidays!
You can ask me anything you want, doesn't have to be fandom related, though maybe you want a portrait of someone else as a character from a show, which would be fine, or just a character from a show, which is fine as well!

You can ask me to work in any of the mediums listed, please note that some will take more time: Digital paintings are the quickest, then charcoal drawings, and then the more elaborate things like art nouveau pictures. (Actually photomanips are the quickest.)

To ask for a commission, you can comment on this journal, note me on DA, or email me at (Also if you just have a question.)
When asking for a commission you can be as precise or vague as you want, but remember the more details you give me, the more it will be 'like you imagined it.'
During the process you'll get plenty of chances to ask for corrections, so no worries.
You can just make up a list yourself if you'd like, or use this form: (just email it to me, attached to your email).

Things to remember:

If you need something for a certain date, remember;

- Digital paintings take about two weeks, could be faster, but lets stay on the cautious side.
           1) If you just want the digital file I can just send it via email, so it doesn't cost any extra time.
           2) If you want a print it will take longer, up to four days to get it to the print company and printed and then the time it takes to ship it to you (see below)
- Charcoal Drawings take about two weeks
           1) I can't predict you would, but if you'd like it in a digital file as well as the drawing itself, ask me, the file will be send via email
           2) The shipping time will depend on your location (see below)
- All other commissions will take a week (for simple vector/ photomanip) or up to three weeks (art nouveau)
           1) Again, if you just want the digital file, the transfer will be immediate
           2) If you'd like to get it printed, you will have to remember printing it can take up to four days, and shipping will depend on your location (see below)

The time it takes to finish a commission depends on how complex the commission is, and how long it takes before you decide on the line art - until you decide it's right and you want it the way it looks.
If you want it printed but want to save time and cost, you can always get the digital file printed yourself, at a company near your own house.

Shipping times*:</b>
* Benelux: 1-2 days
* Germany, France, Denmark: 2-3 days
* Uk: 2-4 days
* (All other countries in) Europe: 4-7 days
* Outside of Europe: 6-11 days

* These are the times the post office lists, but I would play it save and have at least one week of 'extra' shipping time in mind as I've had delays before (customs can cause delays and there are probably factors I don't even account for that can be tricky with international shipping) and I wouldn't want you to get your order too late. Also remember these are business days, so weekends won't count.

Shipping costs*:

Anything under 38x26cm will be:

* Europe: 2-4 euros
* Outside of Europe: 3-5 euros

Anything bigger will be:

* Europe: 6-8 euros
* Outside of Europe: 17-19 euros

You're very welcome! I thought your Dorian was absolutely stunning and I love the mood of the piece!
olivegbg Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Drawing Dorian is always a treat. The only difficulty is not making him 'too pretty'. He has such good facial features it's very tempting...
Nero749 Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2015  Professional General Artist
Hehe yeah. I do love his face it has a lot of character to it.
