Maqaxha's torment

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Another piece of gift art for Silvy. I love her characters. This is Maqaxha, also known as Kitsune. Once a prince, he was cast from his lands for poisoning his father, and was caught by slave traders, who sewed his eyes shut and sold him as a cheap love slave. I got caught up in the mental anguish that he must have been feeling, realising all that he knew was now lost to him, that he could never be the king he so desired to be. The sun setting behind him is symbolic of that, as is his hair unravelling. I REALLY can't stress how much you should go and see the originals, they put mine to shame. Done in Painter Classic, from scratch. Artwork © me, character © S.Silvestris Strand, so steal it and you have both of us to deal with. And you don't want that. Trust me. Update Feb 2004: Having not been entirely happy with the original, I have redone the picture from scratch, in the same style I did Lapis Lazuli, trying to correct the faults which nagged at me first time round. This version took much longer to do, and the result is much more to my liking, but I still don't think it looks like Maqaxha should. Darn your boy, Silvy, he just won't cooperate....
