kinda reminds me of Drizzt Do'urden (i'm sure i spelled that wrong but i can't remember what it really is)

:iconjakeukalane:
Jakeukalane Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah, i find those characters quite alike, and also, like Amarillion says, Elric of Melniboné. But those characters have quite different background each ones although lot of physical and story similitudes (like the eyes between Elric (red)/Drizzt (purple) the albinism, or the need to drink potions: Geralt did to be a witcher, Elric needed them to have energy. Also in the ability to figth, although in this aspect I think Drizzt beat them both, close next to Elric :D

But three of them are remarkable and indeed great characters and their books are enjoyable (I am about to finish 7th book of Elric, I read 3 firsts books of Drizzt and I read 1 and ˝ of Geralt)

Greetings!

Really interesting character
make me think of Elric of Melnibonee, except for the eyes (he has red ones)

Amazing colors also in this pic ^^

The tentacle is very good! Tentacles have a really weird shape and it's very difficult to draw it like you have.

This is a very interesting painting. I can see the character as a courageous hero with a cold personality, which I like. Nice attention to the details and use of colors. I also like the texture feeling you gave to the tentacles. Keep it up!
