Some might have seen this elsewhere, before... but I've been asked to post it here as well... so here we go :) This one is rather recent work, whereas Golden is nearly two-three years old.

The people who know me, or who have seen me around for some time – they know this character. Hajieelkhe is part of one of my longest running plots, and I've designed him, redesigned him, remade and re-attempted him so many times now that I hardly know where I started off. I do remember that in my initial plans for him, he would either have greenish skin or greenish hair... but as it turned out, I really never seemed able to pull the green-skin bit off. So I gave him green hair. Green hair that I eventually dumped for black hair.

Now, however, I did an attempt at green again. I feel this is the closest I've ever managed to get to the Haji in my heart. I decided to be brave with the colours the way I always wanted to be but couldn't seem to get 'right'. Here he is, Hajieelkhe – little brother of Indeoque. Rebellious but delicate, heartbroken though insolent, passionate and and warmdarkhearted.

Man, I remember seeing this years ago. Did he have a dragon tattoo in the original?

this picture is sooooo offten stolen without giving credits.
Ive come across it on facebook, then tried to trace it and found it on exactly 86 blogs.... of course - not a lone word about the source of the image. Which is sad as the art is mind blowing.
