Mysterious Priest by dapper-owl Mysterious Priest by dapper-owl
An older picture I did of Xelloss and posted on my tumblr but never posted here. I love me some Slayers, and Xel is to this day one of my favourite cartoon characters ever.

I feel bad for not updating, so here you go!

This is by far the best Xel portrait I have ever seen - hats off, you are simply amazing. Great job on extracting his nature to this level ;)

I clicked on your front page deviation, saw this, and was like, "FUCK IS THAT XELLOSS?"

Then I was like, "YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!"

Slayers <3

I'm unfamiliar with the character, but my gosh, the way you finished the hair is just gorgeous. You stayed loyal to the cuts/layers, despite the motion involved, and the muted colours against his bright eyes adds so much to the piece overall! ♥ Brilliant.

This is an awesomely atmospheric picture of Xelloss. So appropriate. I dig it.

I just got about three Xellos pictures in a row in my message box. Your version is an interesting take on his features. I love the hair you've made for him, though I find myself terribly envious of it

Very nice color scheme, violete eyes, and realistic face. It's always pleasing to see Slayers characters in a more realistic style than the canon.
However, I don't like its lips, they're too fleshy.
