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!....
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
