Majordomo by ABELOroz Majordomo by ABELOroz
I had this character/whatever design sleeping in my sketchbook since quite some time, but failed miserably in finding a color scheme I liked for him and could use as a multi-light source study.

I realized it was a chance to try Sam Nielson's approach to breaking light in spotlight, occlusion and color layers (well, not sure that it is his invention really) and eventually it has benefited of the slight "unpredictability" of that method.

Criticism is welcome as always.

Known problems:
- the lower foot perspective needs some tweak
- the string of saliva gets visually confusing with the collar beneath.
- the candles feel a bit flat
- the saliva still looks a bit too artificial.

The suggester says: "His rendering of this character is excellent and I think his idea is very original and interesting. This artist definitely deserves more credit than he is getting."

On his face, is it a scar, or a ridge natural to his species?

Also, what do his hands look like, really? Or his feet for that matter?

I'm so curious.

instead of viewing the strings as saliva think of them as eye nerves
