Okay, I seriously give up on this one, at least for now.  I finished it a week or two ago and I've been staring at it trying to figure out some sort of background or border or SOMETHING to make it more interesting.  I'm calling this one a character study since it's so plain and boring and he's in such a static pose.  Sigh.  Anyway, this is Fartouch from Mantricker's time and into at least some of Bearclaw's.  He always seemed so grumpy except when he was talking about fish, for some reason.  This guy is a serious study in blue.  I tried to add lots of grey shades in his tunic and boots and shades of blue in his pants.  Hope it shows.  If I can come up with a background or something else, I'll edit this.

Bwahaha! That description is awesome! Okay, maybe this is not the most exciting pose, but it sooo fits him. Plus, I think you really nailed that coloring again! Actually, this is quite a striking combination with the red hair and the rather cool blue tones. I like his grumpiness!
You are sooo prolific! I love it! Thanks for all the art!

I too have those moments when I feel like there should be a background, but can't think of a good one. But this one works without it too! I'm so jealous how you can make all the clothes look so super soft...  :o

I loooooove the leather shading :love  I'm continually amazed by how much you draw, and your subjects often being rare characters or original elves just makes it all the better!

Fartouch...World of Two Moons' original grumpy cat.

I'm not sure what's happened, but I've done a lot of sketches since the calendar and I'm working on getting them done before I decide they're awful.  Guess I was just really inspired by the most recent theme!  I even had a strange idea hit me recently and I did four quick sketches that I had a lot of fun doing.  Hopefully I can get them done before I hate them and lock them away.  Thank you for the compliments, ladies!
