The character's six wings are inspired by owl, dove and swan wings. Elerus belongs to Ardwenn, and he was kind enough to allow me to spend quite a lot of time painting this commission, as well as including it as an exclusive in the artbook! A progress page with the WIP/concept sketches for this piece will also be in the artbook, along with six other of my previous fantasy paintings and pencil works.
Pre-orders for the artbook are now live, and you can learn more information about the book and the other talented artists involved at BlackFoxPress.com

It's slowly recovering. XD Elerus' character has many variations, depending which story he appears in (his creator both writes him in original books and rps him in multiple different universes), so he ends up sometimes with many wings, one wing, wispy ephemeral wings, or even no wings at all. ^__^
Wow ! The work on the wings is amazing! They look so soft yet so real, AND THE LIGHT THROUGH THE FEATHERS !
Everything is so refined, the whole illustration is gorgeous.
(And baby birbs!!! ;v; )
This is without a doubt one of the most outstanding works I've ever commissioned. Thank you for taking on this large painting, and thank you for bringing my vision to life in a way more profound and skilled than I could express. 2020 has been a tough year for hundreds of thousands across the globe, but this painting helped make my year a little brighter.
