Beholder of the Night

By request of for his Quinta Essentia project.
The character he had me do is:

Name: Ezekiel Grant
Class: Rogue
Age: 22
Physical Description: Thinly built, with short brown hair and soft features.
Personality: He can be very dark and brooding, and more than a little cynical at times.
Weapons/Tools: Blackjack, Bow, lockpicks.

The character is from the RP "Nocturne".

The piece took me forever, concidering if you look through my gallery... I never do backgrounds lol. I am extraordinarily bad at them and pulling an entire composition together. I really am more of a character artist. Therefore I pretty much spent a month after I painted the character scribbling and deleting any background I made. Finally I just got fed up and decided to just get it done. I should have done alot more planning in the original stages and probably made the environment first, and then placed the character inside - but that would have been the intelligent thing to do... and we all know I'm not capable of that.

Anyway - for some reason I'm pleased with it and am putting it up, lol I'd appreciate it if you looked at the character and just let the background be.. just background. Don't be too harsh - haha.

God knows how long...
