I spent about 6 1/2 hours on this... >.> pretty much in one sitting... I only took a break to eat dinner. The character is Xenos the Stranger, he's a twelve year old who is already a master of Necromancy. The skull in his arms is the skull of Arkanol the first Necromancer, and the most powerful magic artfact of necromancy there is. It was given to him by the god of death in the form of a dream (represented in the picture by the two demon hands).
