So I pretty much worked on this all day, seeing as it's my day off. I've got a trade and commission to work on, so this'll be the only personal art for a while yet :)

Not sure who all remembers him, but here's my character Di. Out of all my characters I probably draw him the most. Not sure why! I've definitely tweaked his design a little bit; if anyone remembers his reference sheet. He's big and intimidating and I wanted him to look it, so I've fixed his proportions, changed his horns, and. . . well just did a lot of minor tweaks that I think helped a lot :)

This image uses the same gradient map as my other most recent pic (drejrael). I was going to color it, but then I decided I don't know what color Di really is (since I want to change that too), so have the gradient map.

I apologize for the lazy rain. . . I originally made hundreds of dots to create rain and then realized I had done it straight onto the picture. It took me about two hours to color over all of the dots and by the time I was done, I really wasn't motivated to make rain anymore.. .

Anyway, enjoy.

Di and Byondi :iconshinerai: my face

I looked at the reference sheet ad noticed that he was supposed to be black... it doesnt bother me at all, just saying that this design looks friggin gorgeous!!! I love his wounds and Ilove his angered face!!! still those wounds must burn like hell when its raining, makes me cringe...

That's really wonderful, I love how the red of his torn flesh is the only color that really stands out along with his eye, it makes for a very powerful image. ^_^ The wounds look so real, too.. Very impressive! I'm loving it ^_^
