This took me a while to get into and do. It was finshed for weeks but I was waiting on the then commissioner, but I thought I'd upload it now since... well, I became quite happy with it. This is the Spriggan design from my Skyrim adoptables - and something I went o.O 'eep' over, but... I pushed through it, and I also bought some fantastic brushes from Aaron Blaise's website that are SO good in finishing this. I really enjoyed it, and bringing it to life after being so stuck and unsure of getting it done! Full view is better for all the details to be seen =)

edit; updated with new version with bigger watermarks... I may replace it with the old ne again in time but for now, no. This was a commission that was never paid for. I am going to use this manipulaiton but changed for an adoptable in the future.

edit for new; detail shots!
