How can you not have a backstory for these really nice characters that you draw?

Outstanding, as always. Thanks for the creative interpretation of the character who I had not defined very well with much of a line-by-line description.

I like that he looks both feral and "civilized", the two different-colored eyes are some excellent creative license on your part, and gives me other ideas for the character. The background is great, the lighting is amazing. I love the wash you apply to your art as well, as it keeps all of the work you've done for me thus far looking uniform and consistent. In this case the wash has more of a 'scratchy' texture, like scratches on glass.

Gives everything you do an old-faded photograph kind of look or a weathered look that really adds a nice tone and character to the piece. It's more than just a static representation of the character, but a full piece of art in its own right.

Excellent work, Ms. Isard. ;)

Thank you for the opportunity and trust! I really enjoyed taking this on because its something I haven't done before as you know and I am glad how it turned out. I like adding a little touch of rain or something in it, it makes it look a bit more real and atmospheric.

Yes, and the merelings occupy the shadows, the corners, the alleys and the unwanted places. The background conveys that he is in a place that most humans probably wouldn't want to go, yet still indicates that he is somewhere within civilization (if a bit overgrown/aged/forgotten).

It's all the little details. Magical.
