Thanks for such kind words! ^^
I'm really glad to know you enjoy my skeksis art, particularly the tutorials: been trying my best to render the most helpful ones I could! ^^
There's many more of them coming, about character expressions, head angles, skeksis anatomy 101, body types, clothing and added bulk (something that's really a thing with skeksis), and Ocs.
I'm trying my best to finish and edit the next ones off so the next should be out pretty soon now ^^
Oh! Haha, that's amazing ^^ I'm happy to know you do ^^ (I admit that I always felt like the old depiction of Sil as the guy whose real motivation and his innermost plans you never completely guessed was...idk, honestly more appealing (at least to me,as an old fan) than the new full-fledged psychopath version who is literally a murderer and is basically always the culprit for anything bad happening anywhere.)
This is of course just a matter of preferences and nothing more, liking his new version is equally good ^^ However, it's refreshing and nice for me to see someone say they enjoy my "classic" take on the character as someone who actually is basically "envy incarnate" in many senses, and has the main motivation to gain approval, appraisal and admiration from his peers- and hopes to do this by gaining power.
Have you ever seen the "Dark Crystal Creation myths" comics? ^^ *I'd recommend them, along with the Legends of the Dark Crystal manga ^^ *I think they're nested online for a free read tho I don't know where
Those books wrote what I personally feel is the closest approach to how skekSil "felt like" in the old movie (again, this is just my opinion and it's fiction, all versions are okay and valid
To not spoil, I'll just say that in one of those stories, there's a phrase, most likely attributable to Sil, which says "Is there not a single being that will show me compassion? Is there really no love for me in all creation?!" -
That's the innermost face of his character in a nutshell. At least, the way I intepret him ^^
*Text wall, sorry, I am too talky sometimes
Thank you, again, for so much kindness, I hope you'll enjoy my next uploads and find the next tutorials useful enough! ^^
