/love If you would have made Doyle as dark as he's supposed to be there would have been no distinction between his clothes and face. Makes for beautiful imagery when read, but difficult to translate into a drawing. Would have loved to see Rhys and Galen in there too since the four of them are the closest to her heart out of all of them. (Mainly because they're two of my personal favorites lol)

Though, just being critical...you didn't do the tri-colored irises. and doyle/darkness's skin is supposed to be basically the color of his hair...and be able to fade into the darkness..hence his name. But his skin just looks charcoal.

Not to be critical of your being critical but I did do the tri-coloured irises. However this version online is small to prevent art theft. And artistic license is allowed, even if it disappoints the critics. To work with the contrast between these three characters I chose to make his skin charcoal. *shrugs*

ooh, ok! You know the characters well then. It's just that I really love them and the tri-colored irises are a big thing to miss!
Would you do any other works from the Meredith Gentry series?

Wonderful job really!
I love Frost... that could just be me though. He and Doyle are among my favorite in the series.

Could anyone really choose just one of those beautiful men? I think not...

Personally I'd choose Rhys, only because Merry has her deserving claws into Doyle and Frost ;) And no sweetie, it's most definitely not just you =p Thank you! :heart:

Rhys is a lovely one isnt he? Serious and yet funny. But his love is all for Merry, even if he can only second best to Doyle and Frost.

Mistral though.. Now that one character I would like to spend some time with. So wild at heart.

Eh, they;re book characters, as much as I love them, I know not to get my hopes up ;) Mistral is pretty hot property I admit, but perhaps Barinthus would be even better, I like an older man ;)

If thats the way to think about it then yes, he would be good.. But darling.. They're all older men silly. -laughs-

I dont know though... So many to choose from.

amazing job on the colors, although i think doyle would be darker than that I think the shade you used is the better looking choice. Kudos ^ ^

Oh I agree he should be so much darker, but call it artistic license if you will, but you needed to be able to make our his features and I figured maybe he was having an oily day or something >_> /jks :)
