Young Reyliss by vantid Young Reyliss by vantid
Like most folks I have a headworld or two and stories that go along with it. Reyliss and his world has been kicking around for about five years and I really hope someday I can share more of it. In all likelihood the stories will never emerge, but I spend my spare time researching and sketching it out anyway.

This is my rhino hornbill fellow as a younger bird, before he gets the elaborate carving son his casque (horn).

The warm colors and light reflection on the beak is stunning-
and those feathers are so realistic looking!
Sweet character design-love the fact that he is a rhino hornbill as well, don't see art of them often :D

Lucky for him: most hornbills got their casques carved after they were dead...

The carved helmeted hornbills are in fact the inspiration for this character.

The glowing-effects are absolutely amazing, and the slight fantasy-add on of the jewelry also looks wonderful in this simple szene <3
