Kaigel (right) & Shantin (left) posing with their swords. Certainly not the kind you'd want to mess with!
This race of characters which I refer to as the Velpryn are the first kind that I worked on. Kaigel was a bit newer of a design, but Shantin has had some critical redesign from his past models. Compared to other character types that I've focused on recently, they've proven quite challenging in getting the look I want. In particular, setting up their hair and fur can take a good chunk of time to get right. It was quite an adventure coming up with a workflow to get the desired look. The experience taught me a lot about breaking up certain elements into smaller and more manageable parts.
