Aaaand.....here we are!

I didn't make much effort with coloring on this one (obviously), but I wasn't really trying to go for the full dramatic affect anyway. This was done more as a way of getting an idea of how this fellow was going to look than anything else.


This is Garoon, a character I created for a story I am doing in collaboration with my sister, Kirsten. I might do it graphic-novel (comic) style, but as I am already DOING a comic, I'm not sure how that's going to work. We'll just have to see......

Anyhoo, Garoon is a Djinn (or Genie, depending on where you're from) who comes from the 7th Plane of Existence (also known as the Demonic Plane). He's not your typical awaken-me-and-I-shall-grant-you-three-wishes Genie. He's more the sadistically evil genie who would be more likely to torture and kill you rather than grant you three wishes.

So please, please, please don't mess with him.

UPDATE.....THINGIE: I recently finished shading this, so it looks about 20% more awesome. Photoshop <3!

:-) Gerun Knarlson replies: "Oh, yes....for some reason, I’ve always associated six fingers with villains. I suppose it might have something to do with the fact that I grew up watching The Princess Bride. 1"
