The warm season has returned and the chicoleo tribe of the nimbular are calling for arms. Here you can see one of their warriorpriests. He let the shell 'sing' again. Elves all over the place will hear the call and will gather around to prepare. I did not completely finished cause while I was thinking about a background my dog just walked over it and leaved his 'beatifull' pawprints behind on my drawing!! GRRRR! Ideas for backgrounds are most welcome though!

There's so many things about this picture that are just beautiful. First of all, the feathers on his head... so decorative... and the shell, the shiny hair, and the markings. I hardly know how to crit it... the only thing I can see that needs a little fixing up is the face. The nose and eyes seem a little small and makes it appear flat, but the way you made it so it appears he's blowing is great.

Wow....he's very detailed. I really like the headress, and how you made his cheeks look like he's blowing into the shell, which is also very nicely done. I also love the tatoos on his wrists. It's all a very good pic, keep it up!

very nice detail work. Personally I think this would be appropriate with a southsea island background. I do feel the eye is a little forward and small for the face, but otherwise, it is magnificent.
