VT: Family Portrait by Dhirento VT: Family Portrait by Dhirento
Yeah, missed the weekly, but whatever. A picture of Lir's family that's probably hanging over the staircase in their winter residence :iconimsotiredplz:

From left to right:

Bernard, 43 (father)
A genius man from the higher middle class who
build up a big company all on his own in his youth, which teleported him into
the highest ranks of society. He followed his family's advice to marry well in order to secure his position. Cordelia was his first and only choice and he's deeply convinced that their marrige was of the romantic kind. Kind hearted and open minded, he got along well with all kinds of people, though the higher class always saw him as a rather
eccentric and strange man for treating everyone equally. Although he loved both his sons equally, he felt more connected with Lir, since they were very alike at that time;
When Lir is fiveteen, he passes away from lung cancer, leaving his family devastated.

Lir, 8
Quiet boy, weak and frequently ill so he gets homeschooled in his younger years. Suffers from his mothers neglectfulness and his brothers cruelity towards him. He likes to build models of ships and machines and being red to.

Cordelia, 32: (mother)
Daughter of an old, noble clan related to the royal family, but that slowly sank into
poverty over time. Was brought up to be a perfect bride and married off to a wealthy man in order to prevent her family’s financial ruin. Beautiful, but swallow,
orthodox, cold and calculating, she never developed real love for her husband.
Concentrated most of her powers to bring up her first born, Logan, but got surprised
by a second, unwanted pregnancy that affected her health badly. Left Lir’s
nurture to a wet nurse then, never growing quite warm with him.

Logan, 14 (older brother)
Lir's older brother and pretty much better than him in everything but thinking. His mother's exclusive devotion and early confrantation with the dark side of high society left him eltist and downright malicious, what he masks over with perfectly trained gentleman behavior. Is pretty good in manipulating people with his looks and charm and enjoys doing so great lot. He has a weird love/hate relationship with Lir which might ground in his arrogance and the fact that he can't have anyone on the same level as him. He later marrys Lir's first crush an act of jealousy?

PHEW glad my rambling in somewhat enjoyable to read! And thank you, I think expressions are still one of the many things I have to put a lot of work into.

I always enjoy what people write for their art. ovo
Well I really love how varied the expressions are and how well they fit to the characters.
Lir looking so shy and insecure, his mother emotionless, father happy and his bro looks quite playful.
It works very well with their personalities and stories <3
