The Book of Days by dapper-owl The Book of Days by dapper-owl
I donít get a lot of chances to do a picture I want to do just for prints at cons or for, gasp, fun, so this was a great little exercise and some good practice at trying to do my commission-style colouring on a larger scale. I posted this lineart AGES ago, iím sure some of you remember. Character is Llevyathan, angst ridden time travelling teenager from Falls DíAnge. Heís got a book he learns epic magic fromÖ.. the pic is pretty literal, not gonna lie. This is one of the earlier characters who got a bit of a make-over that Iím hoping I can carry over to the rest of the cast as well. Asmodeus and Samael already got theirs.

Felix is next!
