So you wanna play with magic? by AlexandarCho So you wanna play with magic? by AlexandarCho
(Resubmit it as I posted the unfinished work by mistake last night srrry:P )
Alright, as I always wanna draw something about Merlin's magical golden eyes, I finally get some times to do so. Well.. so basically this is a portrait of druid!Merlin with his glowing(and quite scary) eyes! What do you think??

This is beyond cool!  It not only looks like Merlin, it feels like Merlin.  Amazing concept!

I really like how you can tell by the lighting on the eyelashes that the eyes are actual sources of light! :D

Absolutely gorgeous. I love the way you've blended the colours to allow merging but also definition and focus on Merlin's eyes, markings and the triskelion. There's definitely a sense of an other-worldliness aura and mysteriousness to Merlin in this piece, which I absolutely adore. Well done Clap

Hi! I'm coming over here from Fanfiction.net (VikingSong). I've never commented on any sort of DA piece before, but this is fantastic and I HAD to. This drawing portrays Merlin perfectly, and I love the colors. I don't usually see a blue/gold color combination (actually, blue is my least favorite color) but in this it just works and I love it.

This is absolutely gorgeous--I love the colors! :)  After I saw this, it single-handedly inspired one of the plot-elements in a fic I'm writing over at fanfiction.net (www.fanfiction.net/s/10463682/….  The plot-element was that Merlin/Emrys has a magical "signature" that others with strong magic can sense, or even see, which looks like your artwork :)  I was wondering if you would consider giving me permission to use this image as the "cover art" for my fic?  (I totally understand if you say no, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask!  Plus I figured you'd like to know just how much I liked this image!)  Thanks!

Oh wow I'm thrilled that you like this pic, thank you very much. And yeah you absolutely can use it as the cover art, as long as you credit me and link back the work, I don't see why not :)  
Also, wish your fic goes well!

Oh thank you!  I will absolutely give you credit!  (I'd already been directing readers to your Deviant Art page each time the plot element inspired by your work came up in a chapter!)  Oh, I'm so excited! :D  Thank you :)

I dont think his eyes are scary i find them amazing n quite Dazzling when they glow with magic and THIS just embodies that greatly its beautiful~
I love the cool color of magical energy against the warm color of his magical eyes it makes it soo dramatic and makes the focal point, the eyes, stand out even though you have the druid symbol shining on his chest, your eyes are just drawn to his and the rest is doely noted.

The detail of the lips is realy good too, good job.

I also love the tittle you chose haha.
I think this would be a great print if you could sell it as one, if I had money I would buy this as a poster.

And you are very welcome
I'll probably be going through your gallery more and posting.
bet you can't guess what I'm watching on TV right now.

Oh no, I suck at choosing the titles, always making some silly ones that is!! And I'm not sure whether I should put this on the online print shop or sth, since I don't own this character or whatever... But thank you all the same, Sai, and what were you watching on TV then, I'm kinda curious since you brought it out :D

I was on Episode 2 or 3 or season 1 of Merlin lol!


And that was my thoughts too, If you could put it there being as there are copy rights on the character. But it would still be really epic to have on my wall.

Worship   I totally ADORE this fan art. Since I saw this I have this headcanon that this is his true form, since he's a powerful magical creature, and I just ajskfgsjfgahsfg, this inspires me so much! *_____*

Thx :)  I like the idea of Merlin's true form, I've never thought about that before. I just wanted to draw a wild, Druid raised Merlin covered with neon body paint or something like that in the first place. :P And I'm happy you like it, I'm quite  flattered!
