Sorry ive been gone a while! University work has kept me busy but I’ve recently fell into Fire Emblem Hell so I hammered Birthright and Conquest and i am left wanting the last game but alas I must wait! and while I wait I came up with the Idea of Xander being a World of Warcraft Paladin, SO here he is, I super need to sketch up Ryoma soon but for now have my fave.
I’m revisiting his design a bit more to just give him a more unique and identifiable look, which mostly I had done to his hair. I also explored on his other forms to get an idea of what they might look like~
First gouache attempt!
A lot of crappy stuff happened, including torn paper on the sides but I am still very happy with the result. There is definitely room to grow 🤣 but the way that paint looks at the end is soooo nice!
I love digital but a real peace on a real paper feels sooo different and nice. Or at least makes me feel hiped the first 24 hours! Undo is still a problem but well.. we can’t love our lives with undo anyways.
