Quick little portrait of Masahiro of the Vir, just and excuse to see him in color really Needed a mental break this week due to intense time at work, so I grabbed one of the expressions from Inktober and took a closer look. Not quite sure what he's about here, aside from my desire to capture more of a 'regal' look at the man. He starts out in my story as stripped of title mostly due to his father's actions but wouls have at the very least been viscount of a large territory. Eventually he begins to claim the heritage and connection to royalty of his neighboring nation from his mother's bloodline. Being greatgrandson to a prince, he is labeled a duke and later becomes Prince Consort for marrying my protagonist. He's usually laughing, a bright and happy optimist overall. This portrait captures the stren look his face can give him, but I'm not quite sure if that seriousness reaches his eyes in this one. I could see him trying overly to be serious as he's being examined and would prefer to cause a little bit of amusement for himself at any moment.
