A Rare Occurrence by Turtle-Arts A Rare Occurrence by Turtle-Arts
Karasu sleeping... That doesn't happen very often. :I Another rare occurrence in this is the fact that he's smiling... a little. This is about as close to smiling as he gets. Must be having a rather good dream for that to happen. XD

Anywho, it's been a while since I've drawn this OC of mine, so I guess some of my newer viewers may not know him. So let me give you the basic break down. :nod: This is Karasu, my honchkrow inspired character. He's a cartographer, a bit of a grump, slightly cowardly, but generally a decent enough fellow. Oh and he haaaaaaaaaaaaates anything having to do with cats in any form whatsoever. He hates them. Like, he would probably throw your cat in the river while you aren't looking. >_>
I made him for a group a while back that I eventually got booted from for inactivity. Basically, I never went to the chatrooms, and since I don't do many finished pictures of this character, I wasn't putting up enough stuff to keep my membership. Ah well. It's not like I can't draw my character outside of the group anyways. XD

But yeah, I'm actually quite fond of this character and I really do draw him quite a lot. It's just that I usually never go past the sketch stage with him, and I don't post many of my rough sketches, so he doesn't usually make it up. But I wanted to do another full picture of him again since it's been ages since I've done a full-body pic of him for DA. But for those of you who know this character from before, you may have noticed that this isn't how Karasu normally looks. I had a random desire to draw a modernized version of him instead of his normal attire. It's a pretty drastic change for him, but I like it quite a lot. :> Also, he lost his face paint for this version of him, since that's really only suited to his original attire. This is also the first time I've actually put up a pic where you can really see Karasu's prosthetic leg. Usually he has it covered down to the ankle, so you only see the foot. But I wanted to draw the whole leg for this.

P.S. For those of you who don't know- Karasu's false leg is fashioned to resemble that of a bird.
P.S.S. It's unusual for Karasu to be asleep because he is a lifelong insomniac. He has a very hard time sleeping, so he almost always looks tired.

I love how careful and ... well, soft your shading is. You just don't overdo it, and it looks pretty cool and realistic because of that, while still maintaining your own style. Plus the folds and the pose are really well done!
