It was going to just be a pencil sketch because I was afraid to ruin it! Admittedly it looked ok until I scanned it and then it was messy and ikky so the background was an issue...anyway, I guess its ok now hahaha.

Another troublesome character to draw: Zantair. Everything about him is an illusion so you can bet he's good at them. Are they bird, bats, or butterflies? Or maybe a mixture of all three!
And no his eyes aren't red, they're meant to be pink.
Also no those aren't jeans, they're meant to be black but alas I used my "Cool greys" that look blue

Also I think my Yoken markers smell funny and may have effected my brain last night.  I had some weird dreams after prolonged exposure! *staggers about* 


Zantair and all related names and discriptions are (C) to me

You’re welcome! 1 I can imagine! Many small details are always very craving to do! *nod nod*

:-) Rasha Al Najjar replies: "It’s why sometimes I ignore small details hahaha I don’t have that much patience for them"

Smooth transformation on the costume. Solid use of color too.

Haha! I have a bad habit of doing the opposite. I always hate myself when I do it and promise not to do it again... then the next time I sit there painting every feather/scale/grass blade etc again! XD

:-) Rasha Al Najjar replies: "I hate details so try to avoid them as much as possible, they sort of give me a headache when I start doing them! And I get lazy very quickly so they end up half done"

Super composition. Powerful in its energy. I love the cloak wolf transformation that frames the bottom. Black, white ,gray and red really work here. The character has centre stage and you draw us in up the checkerboard cloak. He looks wistful or lost somehow. Such as an illusionist might., running from reality. One can lose oneself. Bats in the moonlight are a nice touch. Awesome moon as well. Way to go!

:-) Rasha Al Najjar replies: "Thanks so much for the thoughtful and deep comment, you really took the time to look at everything and I appreciate it very much, thank you."
