The Librarian by fayrenpickpocket The Librarian by fayrenpickpocket
Put this on my tumblr a while ago but finally putting it on here. The Librarian from an old Gaia CI. I remember when designing him for this illustration I was also making an effort to ensure it would translate into a nice item set, which added to the challenge~ @u@

I went through a period after finishing this where I didn't like it anymore, the flaws just seemed too... loud. Which is why it took me a long time to share it. But now that I've had some time away from it I can appreciate it again. XD Do you guys do that too? Of course, some of my finished stuff never comes back around to the 'this is okay' category and stays firmly planted in the 'ugh' zone.

I actually think this is really good! I love the colors and his hair is awesome!! I've had times though where I hate an art piece I've done and don't put it up until like months later!

This is actually from a website called Gaia online. It's one of the CIs.

I know what you mean, I get it too, but on a whole other level since you are thousand times more talented than I am XD once again, amazing picture, the costume is so amazing (I study history of costume so I am really into it XD) and the colours are great :3

There might be a slight problem with the thumb, but meh, you know... hands... XD the curse of all artists.

I love your art, I really do!
