Jarlaxle and Artemis Entreri (c) R.A. Salvatore
(For those who don't know, the scruffy human is Entreri, and the drow who dresses like a cross between a pirate and a pimp is Jarlaxle)

...
"What do you you see when you look out there?"Jarlaxle asked. "Wasted potential? Barrenness where there should be fertility? Death where there should be life?"

"Reality," Artemis Entreri answered with cold finality.

(Promise of the Witch King pg. 124)
...

Meh. >_<

Due to all the wonderful feedback I've gotten on my first pic of Artemis, I decided to work on this, though I'm afraid I'm a little disappointed with how it turned out. Maybe it had something to do with Photoshop crashing on me every two minutes... -__-; I dunno... what do you guys think?

Ah well, at least Jarlaxle was a... truly unique drawing experience. I was both somewhat amused and vaguely horrified when I realized that that monstrosity on his head was the first hat I've ever painted. Hoo-boy...

Uh... Anyway, I'm also toying with the idea of drawing some goofy comics with these two to make up for my fail-age on this pic. Any ideas? :XD:

Thanks!! And I agree. It's one of the reasons why I wanted to paint them. I have another piece of Artemis that I think is much better, if you're interested.

Love this. The background is what I had in mind when I was reading it, lol. I think that you depicted the expression really well.

Oh my! You made Jarlaxle look so.... AMAZING! xD Mind if I use this as a cosplay base? Out of all the Jarlaxle art this is one of the best.

Now all I need is Dinin. =3=

I know! T_T I always feel so bad for Artemis... It makes me want to give him a hug, but I have a feeling I would end up losing a few limbs if I tried. O_o

Excellent part in the story! Haha..cross between a pirate and a pimp...pfft xD Of course the pirate part makes sense because I believe Jarlaxle mimics the 'swashbuckling' style of fighting, but of course he uses ACTUAL skill lol. Wonderful job!

Heehee, thank you! ^___^

Though I'd argue that "pimp" makes as much sense as "pirate", considering his reputation with the ladies...

Heh. I totally just envisioned Artemis rolling his eyes at that last part...

Jarlaxle: :D
Atemis: :disbelief:

This one is also fantastic! Probably you've heard it many times, but I wish to be quite as good as you someday :)

Both Entreri and Jarlaxle look like themselves for me, so you've done amazing job :D
