One of three potential pieces done of Carwyn for prints. This is one of the ones that lost to “Carwyn’s Heart”. While I think “Carwyn’s Heart” is 100% the better choice, I still love this particular piece nonetheless.
I think this is a perfect example of how conceited Carwyn can get. He’s looking pretty smug on a throne, summon a heart emblem once against specifically to show that he is the master of Love Magic!
I absolutely adore his pose. I love how I drew him. Yes, there are obvious flaws in the picture (that’s why there are all those notes on what to fix), but that’s fine! I love this!
Again, like “Carwyn’s Heart”, I was still learning more about my characters and who they are. I wanted something that associated him with love (so the hearts) and showed his personality, which this nails. I probably would have included cakes & ale (please see “Carwyn’s Heart”) if I was to draw this today.
And don’t be surprised if I redraw this particular picture one day, because goodness me, it’s one of my favourites! Or at least, if not a redraw, there will be something inspired by it.
