The Elder by Zephyri The Elder by Zephyri
"The clouds seemed to whirl to the sound of the old man's quietly firm voice. Whatever portent he foretold to the townspeople huddled about him atop the bluff, the weather echoed his manner and tinkled the bells strung about his ample girth, tolling for the pending darkness."

Another world building piece, this time Eideann's village elder. Teller of portents and signs, banisher of evil spirits and ultimate voice of justice in the small whaling town.

I love every time I see a new work of yours in my message centre, it's always pushing to that next level, even with how incredibly skilled you already are you're constantly pushing and improving and it's wonderful to watch! Really adoring the texture, narrative and subtle/subdued colour schemes you've got going on lately, so gorgeous. :heart:

I love this. You get a sense of world building and culture through the figure.... I definitely struggle with that still.

Thanks Chris,  this piece was more of a concept design, with a background thrown in, so the fact you get a sense of culture from it is great!
