Here! Have a painting of an elven Inquisitor! <3
Ok, so I finished this a few weeks ago when I was still on a Dragon Age: Inquisition high, and I’ve been procrastinating putting this up on tumblr (since it’s the first time in a long time I’ve tried painting anything close to realism in photoshop in literally years). I’m embarrassingly awkward about posting this kinda stuff and never know what to say about it, so w/e - I loved working on it and I don’t think it turned out too bad. :)
I used one of the few teased/leaked?inquisitor facemorphs floating around the forums as a reference, since I had no idea about elven facial proportions until I took a whack at trying to paint them.

putting this back on my blog because i feel like it’s relevant to the newly released article on cole
