Blinded at a young age in a horrific spell casting accident, this mage lacks the use of his asthetic eyes. Relying solely on his God given inner eye to guide him through the perils of life and to encourage others to beleive and have faith.

Done with mechanical pencil on sketch paper and adjusted in Photoshop.

Hmmm...XD He doesn't appear very encouraging at all at the moment, but perhaps he's just in a serious mood. He's very well drawn, however - this looks like pencil, but the way you blended it seems very unique. Do you have a special method for all those stark contrasts? *_*

Then shading and blending was then done with a small tornillion(paperstump), and since it was on sketch paper the added texture really improved the darks. He's not very optimistic though, is he?"

Really cool. He looks like someone just did something to make him really mad. The shading is awesome in this pic.
