Title... Honestly? I just pick any word.
My pallanoph assassin character Sorstan, appearing yet again with his trademark poker face. However, it could be worse... he could be this instead:
So be grateful.
None of the pallanophs from the Teirn tribe (among which he was raised) like him very much, or his brother, Tjardek. They are
two awkward halfbreeds, after all. He may appear aloof and cold hearted, but there is more to him than meets the eye.
Initially this was a graphite study that I'd work on during my breaks at work, a more in depth look at the planes of his face, which seem to shift entirely too often. (His head seems to insist on becoming all the more broad and compact from profile view, and I'm not sure how I feel about that.)
I didn't feel like uploading just a simple graphite drawing to the pile of uncolored scraps that seem to be cluttering my gallery, so I decided I'd have another go at digital color. I figured it'd be a fun little experiment.
Not bad, considering how uncomfortable, unfamiliar, and inept I am with Photoshop. It seems to be a good, quick way to make a rather polished looking color image, so chances are I might (in the semi distant future, of course) open up commission slots for this style. Just ignore those hideous trees in the background... I know they're awful. D:
Someone please, get these critters out of my head.
