Dawn of a New Era by endave Dawn of a New Era by endave
More practicing! This was my last artwork done for 2012. No better way to end the year than fan art for one of my favorite shows Merlin. I have not seen the new season yet since it is not on netflix :(

Used a screen cap of Arthur and Gwen kissing from season 4 as a reference. I made my version of Gwen because her skin tone was a bit difficult for me to properly capture without looking dull and flat :(

Kinda looks like Morgana and Arthur lol!....:wow:

Edit: Added background, full beard instead of stuble, a bit of more lighting on the faces so the their facial structures are better defined and some brush textures.

A small preview of before and after

It may be a dawn of a new era, but I doubt either one of them cares about that right now. LOL

Aww this is awesome. Nice touch giving him the beard. I wonder why in the show they didn't give him one after he became king. Anyhoo, great show. I hated the final episode... And no, I won't spoil anything XD

Hehe, thanks for holding back the spoilers! I thought the beard would make him more "Kingly" looking...is that even a word? I am glad you liked :)

Looking forward to watching the show once it comes out on Netflix :)
