Originally a class assignment...The assignment was to do a fantasy self-portrait, but turn yourself into a fantasy or sci-fi character/creature. It had to have some way to identify you, but it could be as elaborate as we liked. We were also only given an hour and a half in class to come up with a concept and do a visual...basically a complete drawing (preferably with values blocked in as well) that must then be adhered to for the final piece. Oh, and it had to have a setting/background as well.Sooo...I ended up adding cat/elf ears, claws, a tail, and glowing eyes, in addition to a fantasy setting. I just quickly made up some temple-like place...and I added a smoke dragon thing, like a familiar, as well. I did intentionally keep this character somewhat androgynous, as I've often had people mistake me for the opposite gender, or just left wondering.In the end, it sort of morphed into something that could possibly be used as a new character. Who knows. Either way, I decided to go ahead and name this character 'Tarasi'.
