carver custom

Warmup portraits of my Hawkes…. Or well, my Hawke, and Carver. 

Between Carver, Leandra, and Fenris, Julia has a lot to cry about in Act 2. Thankfully by Act 3 She’s sorted everything out and is, on the surface at least, the Amell daughter Leandra would have wanted.

Warden Carver absolutely grows his hair out into a mullet. He’s still handsome in it. I’m as horrified as you are. The Hawke Family Hotness Trait continues in him. He’d still look 15 if he didn’t have that beard, tho.

Wreath and Carver Hawke by tt-vision

  1. DA:I timeline mage child with tats: Amell crest (right) for the twins and Leandra. Alamarri (aka Celtic/Gaelic) wolf for the elf bae.
  2. Big bro hasn’t had his hair properly cut since Leandra died. DA:I timeline Carver offers grooming advice. (Had no idea how much feels it would stir to see these two together. I was not prepared).

Templar recruit voice in the Gallows: I can’t WAIT ‘till I’ve trained enough to meet a REAL MAGE!
Jayden: Suddenly I think you would have actually made a pretty good Templar, brother.
Carver: Ugh, give it a rest.
Jayden: No, I’m serious. You at least have met real mages. The Order couldn’t just fill your head with whatever nonsense they’re stuffing into these people.
Carver: … Thanks. I guess.
Jayden: I’m still glad you’re not a Templar, though.
Carver: I figured as much. So am I.

(I heard this bit of dialogue in the Gallows today that went kind of like the templar recruit line here? I didn’t see the speech bubble and didn’t catch all the words but that’s what it sounded like. And oviously it’s something that I kinda KNEW already, but it hit home this time - there are actual real templar recruits who have never ever met a mage, and they’re not allowed to. From the Order’s perspective it undoubtedly makes a whole lot of sense; this sort of recruits can’t really build personal sympathy for the mages. :S It’s horrifying.)

((oh and Carver and Jay have previously had a talk about what Carver would have done if the whole Warden thing hadn’t happened. It was a Talk. They’re all right. xD)

And there’s a Hawke to complete the trio.

Bethany: Love (Baby sister)

Carver: Love (Baby brother)

Merrill: Distrust, Friends, Best Friends

Varric: Friends, Best Friends

Tallis: Distrust

Anders: Friends, Distrust, Hate

Gamlen: Love (Uncle)

Isabela: Friends, Distrust, Best Friends

Aveline: Friends, Best Friends

Fenris: Friends, Best Friends, Crush, Love

Sebastian: Friends, Best Friends

GUYS, GUYS, LOOK. The amazingly kind and generous @eluvianmending offered to make me my own custom Carver and Bethany! :OOO I didn’t even know that was possible! x’D They look incredible, and now I’m INCREDIBLY SAD that Jay is a mage and I can’t drag this absolutely cutest Beth with me to Kirkwall. ;u;<3

Thank you so much, this was so unexpected and amazing, and now my game actually reflects what my siblings are pretty much supposed to look like! :OOO

ETA: also the hair mod on Bethany is THIS, and the freckles are from HERE

After seeing pheberoni ’s amazing drawing of all of the Dragon Age 2 companions, I knew that i had to draw them all too. Some of them I managed to make look more like their designs than others. Just a quick upload in preparation for something bigger! :D 

My Hawke, Avery, is right next to Anders. 

Bethany looks so derpy jesus

Leandra Hawke & her terrible giant children

“This will take a while” I said with full intention to keep painting & let my focus deteriorate towards the end lmao. This is also well ahead of the event but I don’t caaaaare this was fun. ^^

Wanted to keep Carver and Bethany looking sort of like themselves BUT also give them red hair and freckles. Leandra would have been brunette or blonde when she was younger - the children all got their coloration from Malcom. And all became red, freckly, tall, and taller.

Shadows settle on the place, that you left.
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness.
Destroy the middle, it's a waste of time.
From the perfect start to the finish line.

And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones.
'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong.

We are the reckless,
We are the wild youth
Chasing visions of our futures
One day we'll reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there.

And if you're still bleeding, you're the lucky ones.
'Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone.
We're setting fire to our insides for fun.
Collecting pictures from a flood that wrecked our home,
It was a flood that wrecked this home.

And you caused it.

Another Legacy DLC inspired drawing. I did Legacy with my Blood Mage, Aubrey, with Carver and Anders in my party. Last time, I didn't bring Bethany with me (because I admittedly don't care for her), but when I brought Carver with me the whole experience was wildly different and Aubrey and Carver's interactions were really heartbreaking. Almost as heartbreaking as poor Anders losing his mind.
Tumblr butchers the quality, as per usual.
