The original concept of this character started off when I was in high school and first got Photoshop 7 and started my digital art journey.

Galleon is a being who battles endlessly in Hell guarding the gates that lead into the earth realm. Galleons can only be selfless beings, willing to leave their own lives for the greater good. Bringing light into darkness. As long as Galleons endure in the endless battle the flow of the universe remains balanced. Every Galleon must meet their end by becoming the demons they fight or by death at the hands of demons. Once dead the flow is disrupted bringing dark times until the new Galleon of Hell is chosen to carry the burden of the silenced. Allowing the silent to speak.

This idea was derived from my thoughts on politics at a young age. As tension rose in Pakistan, my home country, there had been figures that stood up to make the country progress and lead people into a positive direction. However every time one stood up they were eventually swept under the rug due to the dominating corrupt politicians and a miscommunication within the general community.

"The winds may fell the massive oak, but bamboo, bent even to the ground, will spring upright after the passage of the storm."

My graphic tablet has died out on me so the image you see is actually drawn using an ink pen. I made this directly with the ink pen. There was no sketches made using graphite pencils.

Any artist beginning to ink may want to try this. Begin drawing with an ink pen, since you can't erase your mistakes you will need to make the best of what you got.
Not only does this require a tactical drawing strategy but it will also help you reflect before each pen stroke.

Like an arbiter?

By the way, i thought this was a snow elf the first time i saw it. The weapon looks like one of the ones the falmer use in skyrim.

fantastic

The concept is gorgeous. The drawing uses those perfect muted tones that are great for a little extra exploration into character. You got it.

Damn...

Dude, you have potential.

I'd like to see you paint something. There are so many artists out there with talent and you are one of them. (Somewhat, if you can prove it.) If you should happen across an art store, please take the time to buy some paints and just make something. Somthing professional. This is pretty good, actually. Channel the effort that you put into this into something physical.
