It was a full moon last Saturday so I figured why not go with something appropriate (also, do I really need an excuse to churn out some Daemonslayers art? XD). So here we have Shade, looking like his undead-ness is showing.  He's supposed to be a lighter brown but I kinda like how the colours went here anyway.   He's actually a nice guy, just not in this form...
Could have used this for the cover for that 'Moonsong' short comic I did but I've already drawn something else for that. 

Acrylics on 10x7 acrylic paper. Used a whole six different tubes of paint for the palette: burnt umber (underpainting, not sure it shows through), paynes grey, buff titanium, titanium white, perylene violet and lemon yellow.

Yeah, he has it rough... my characters are a bit unfortunate to have me as their creator XD

I really like the colors you chose, the yellow-greens contrast well with the greys and violets.

Thank you! I spent ages prior to painting sat with my trusty colour wheel agonising over what palette to use so I really appreciate your comment! :)

Simply stunning work! :love: :heart: :wow: As Svartya implied, werewolves are cool but undead weres are just epic. ;)
Gorgeous lighting and shading, and I love that there is a bit of rawness or roughness here and there that really adds to the energy here! :clap:
Love the pose and angle here, and the perspective on his face and claws works really well, he looks like he's on the hunt, and won't stay confined behind that screen... :eyes:
Wonderful! :highfive:

Thank you! ^^  I think I correctly deployed the Knowing When To Stop technique on this one - I was planning to go back and smooth out the detail but then instead deliberately left it a bit rough so I'm glad you think that works :)
Well, let's hope he stays in his bit of paper; not sure I'd want him loose!

You're very welcome, and it can indeed be very hard to use that technique - knowing when to leave something alone is a skill in itself I think! It works wonderfully in this drawing, so well done! :highfive:

Yes, I think that's for the best, he doesn't look like he wants to hug people anyway! :XD:

ta :) 
Being undead isn't something he's exactly thrilled about, but in this form he's a bit beyond caring.
