Mikail (updated look!)

My character Mikail, except beefed up and more clearly realized. He is one tough hombre (to quote a friend), and so I wanted him to seem like it! I do believe this is some of the best shading I've ever done... hoo yah!

    Very cool..you did do a good job with the shading. I like his double braided beard thing too..good job! Smile

      Thanks, EBS! I did originally want him to have just one braid in his beard, but it just didn't seem to suit his personality... in this case the designs of the writer were overshadowed by the desire of the artist in me! Smile

    He does look like a tough fellow at that. Your shading is good but what really stands out for me is the character design. I love it when I see a new original design, its like discovering gold. Very very well done Sarah!!!!

      Gold? Where! I like gold! hehe.

      Thanks so much Lloyd, that's a really great compliment you gave me! Especially since all your characters are so diverse and unique... thanks again!

    Very well done, I love the texturing on the shoulders. A very original piece! +fav.

    Oh Sairsha, this is awesome! I completely agree that this is the best shading job you have done, let alone, probably one of your best characters. I love those little talons or whatever they are coming out of his arms. No, I don't think I would like to engage in a battle with him. Laughing Excellent work.

    Thank you so much! Bounce You always leave such nice comments!

    I'm fond of his arm talons too, I wanted to give him some more dragon-like features (because of what he is in the story) and so those just seemed to work so well! But don't worry, he's a big pushover... I'm sure he wouldn't disembowel you or anything if you fought with him. Laughing
