*clears throat* This rather involved doodle was the product of a few breakroom sessions and late nights. It's Jin, again. But as a kirin once more.
With some superfluous floof. I'm not quite sure what that is all about, in all honesty. Between that and his wind-defying mane, he's got me more than a little confused.
This was an exercise in a few different things, I assure you. For one, I was getting to know my brush pen a little better, as well as the Moleskine sketchbook which has been reserved for more serious minded doodles.
I tried out a bit of perspective, a dash of depth. It almost works.
However, the Moleskine didn't seem all that keen on accepting the ink in certain areas. I think I'll blame my hands for that... you see, the paper was resisting the ink. As if I don't wash my hands enough. AUGH. But I did my best around these areas, though now I think they resemble printed woodcuts in texture.
Jin is sporting more impressive antlers and tusks here, but otherwise he's not changed much. You can find the first sketch of him here: [link]
You'll find him about in his human form as well, grinning dementedly now and again. I ought to do one of these of Mara, but I should finish serious work first. Sleep would also be good.
And now........ good night. *headdesk*
