Another sketch for the character that appears in /art/view/araita/mindflay er-sketch-1

Necromancers are well known for raising mindless undead minions, but what if they were LITERALLY mindless? Mindflayers feed sucking on the brains of their foes, acquiring knowledge from the thoughts and memories that used to be inside their newly acquired meal.
I know the shading is shitty, but it was supposed to be inside the underdark, a huge network of tunnels, a whole world beneath the world.

Used a 0.5 mechanical pencil and a 0.7 one for the blue sketch.



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

I like what I see, but it's difficult to see! From a distance the mindflayer figure is really cool but hard to make out because its in pencil and far away, but when I click to zoom in, its too large and pixelly. I recommend working on your rendering and uploading methods, otherwise from the little I can see, he look really cool! Keep it up!

Thanks a lot for the kind words sir! About the size... I know, should have resized it before, still struggling with the site to get it reuploaded in a un-crazier dimension.
Working on an inked, cleaner, and more colorful version of this from time to time, so I might end up sending it to you in one or two weeks if I manage to finish it.
