The sharp layers on his horns, the soft texture of his hair, the subtle orange red of his eyes, adds up to equal one great piece of art! Good job adding a border/background something I hardly ever bother to do
Not having a drop of artist's blood in me, I'm going to make a deranged attempt at a comment. He doesn't look the slightest like a pansy, though his horns don't seem entirely symmetrical. I like the way you always have some strands of their hair caught on the horns. He seems much more realistic compared to previous works.
wwwwwwwwwwwoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaah. *picks jaw up off the ground* This is gorgeous.Simply amazing. Believe it or not, a while back i had a character of a similar design. Ariedroc, who was a demon lord. Hes a very old char and i have like no pics of him at all. This picture no matter what you say is quite possibly one of my faves that you've done EVER.
I agree with Kazzy sugar.. the face look VERY human... they eyes are soft, the chin more rounded and natural. You did an amazing job.. and it could be the constant influence of Japan, but he looks Japanese to me.
He does NOT look like a Pansy.. Daemons are spirits not necessarily DEMONS, and even bulls have horns so those aren't an indicator...and even if he is MEANT to be a demon, remember, evil isn't always ugly. Sometimes it appears quite beautiful so as to fool you. And have you watched those tiny little girls who know martial arts? there ain't ANYTHING scary or wicked or threatening looking about them.. The cover isn't always a great peek at the pages in the book is it?
I've drawn Daemon several times in my gallery now. He has a very extensive story that's been floating around in my head for years. It's a bit involved. For some reason I've felt like drawing him a lot lately.
there is something specific you did here that i like. you rounded his chin and you did it good. in a lot of your drawings, the faces contort in a way that makes the chin look like it could stab someone. not bad, but less realistic in imagery. this one came out very nicely.
well aside from that i'd say there isn't really anything wrong with them aside from them not really matching the face/body, the horns give off a more sinister look, where as the face is a bit less threatening in comparison
Yeah... I kept trying to make the face more threatening, but it just didn't work out. It's rather weird that he looks so young, when the person I used for reference is 40-something. I do wish he was a bit more sinister. Perhaps he would be if I practiced drawing more realistically more often.
