Okay, so quarantine (and a bit of free time from work) has afforded me the time to clean out my hard drive.
Found a WIP from 2017 (sta.sh/0zli6rjqufq) that I never got around to finishing cause I thought it was starting to look weird... but it seemed salvageable so here we are.


Actually did this right after I did Underdark Exterminators (
www.deviantart.com/gido/art/Un…)... mainly cause I wanted to flesh out their backstories a bit... but also because i've never drawn a dragonborn hatchling before.

Okay, mini-backstory time...

Scene is supposed to depict Kheariv killing another drow child who had been mutilating a particular dragonborn hatchling.  A priestess nearby catches her in the act and applauds the young drow's first kill.  House Barrison Del'Armgo does not suffer weakness.

Wait, why is there a Dragonborn in the Underdark in the first place?

I love how well done the lighting was, it really complementa the excentricity of the two characters skin tones, and eyes.

this looks amazing :love: I adore the gaze in the child's eyes and the satisfied expression of the priestess.

It's so cool to see some of the background story of those two. Great job on the art!

I don't know why it took me this long to get around to finishing this... i'm just glad it's finally done.


Thanks, Sushi :hug:
