Merry Calibration to my Secret Santa giftee! Here's my take on Cecil's Leno-Myraavi Khalil, a particularly anxious and polite Twilight Caste. Cecil mentioned making a comic of this character some day and I hope he will! Khalil intrigues me with his strange tattoo and haunted look.

I took cues from his anima which is described as 'eyes that look everywhere and nowhere arrayed like a peacock's tail' and his spell, Wood Dragons Claws.

I got to experiment with Procreate's Hemp and Soft Pastel brushes with Dry Ink for the contrast of the more crisp lines. I'm quite pleased with the results!

Hey thanks! I love this look too. It's a nice combination of painterly and symbolic Art Nouveau line work, which I have mainly worked in for the past few years. Eventually, I will open up for commissions, but right now I'm closed for a long while for shoulder surgery and to wrap up some of my own long-standing projects. If you're interested to know when I open back up, though, definitely sign up to my mailing list where I'll put out an announcement whenever that happens.
