New painting. I started to draw this few days ago, when I was bored...so at 9pm I started to doodle. I started to paint this as a joke...I never paint portraits on portrait format, so here I wanted to make something different. And wow...after a long time I drew completely with my style again. I guess I draw too many matte paintings :shifty: It's drawn with colors from beginning till the end. For some details on his mask I was inspired from my necklace and his face I repainted twice. Hahaha...I change my mind a lot. You'll be able to see this in my video. :la:

Something about him: His name is Ari and he can transform into a black swan. When he's in human form he usually wears black mask shaped as a swan's head and he have long black hair with white and gray locks. He's a silent person and he doesn't like company. He usually spend days, weeks, months, years... in his small house, far away from villages and people, near small lake. And he's Jin's brother.

I also recorded progress from this painting. You can check it on our YouTube here.:la:

 
It's 1 hour and 46 minutes long.
