...The third take on this (which is formerly this...) made for this contest. (EDIT: Didn't know fanart doesn't count; but at least Razoff looks nicer now.)
The idea behind it? The summer in 2010 was TERRIBLY hot at our place - it even caused smog in the capital, but small towns like mine didn't feel better either. Almost every night, I wished it would rain, as it was impossible to sleep even with a fan on its highest speed.
So, at one of those days I thought of Razoff saving himself from the heat like this. When it's THAT hot outside, sleeping in a mansion with many fireplaces would be a real curse. Especially when you are, in fact, more a water being with quickly drying skin. And there's no better remedy than a plain wet towel and a prayer to Polokus in hope that he'll finally send the blessed coolness onto the sleeping Glade.
In both previous versions he had a glowing halo over his belly; here I replaced it with a glow all over.

♥ I had this idea in mind ever since it started snowing over here in December 2012. I didn't had much time to draw it back then because of the Christmas gifts I wanted to make at first. I then decided it will just be a winter themed picture of Etsuko. Funny thing is though, that it actually started snowing again over here today XD Oh and Etsuko hates cold weather ♥
