-Darl McKenzie Reference- by Silvolf -Darl McKenzie Reference- by Silvolf
It's finally done. I was on hiatus from art because of something that happened and I'm still trying to take in and cope with but I really wanted to get his ref done. He's so well developed and I find the more developed the character is, the longer it takes to do their ref sheet. But in a way that's no bad thing since it's good to have well developed characters. I don't make that many human OCs, but when I do, a lot of them write themselves. Darl is one of these. I thought about him a few months back and he was floating in my head for a while until I drew him. He's a bit different to my other human OCs. My followers on Instagram were the first to see concepts and such for him since I post my art there a lot more than here these days.
I haven't done colour pickers for him because his bio was so long, but I think it's easy enough to get the colours from the images. A few people have been wanting to see this reference sheet done as well, which helped give me the incentive to finish it, so thanks guys! One friend in particular liked him so much that she wanted to draw him as soon as I posted that concept pic and that made me feel really proud (looking at you Senshee! :hug: )
I've been writing up a small story of sorts involving him but it's kinda depressing and won't be posted anywhere or shown to anyone, I just needed an outlet for my sadness and loss. It did help me develop him though, such as who his friends are and his habits as well.
Anyway, enjoy the ref :aww:

Yes! Yes! Yes! Here is his reference and bio I have been waiting for! :D When I first saw his design I was like "I need to draw this guy!" and I look forward to drawing him more in the future as well! You have out so much work and thought into his character, he is really well developed, I love him! :aww:
I really like all the different tattoos he has, they are really interesting, and the fact he has a pierced dick amuses me :XD: I also like tha addition of the nipple piercings! And now I have seen his Cadillac too!
*saves reference* :D :+fav:

I'm so glad you like it! Yeah he just seems to have developed himself which is useful, it means he is easy to write.
I doubt I'll ever draw his pierced dick lol. Not sure what piercings of that kind look like and I don't want to Google it. His Cadillac was fun to draw. Can't wait to see your next pic of him!
