Whoa! Those eyes! That gaping maw of a mouth! That horn! That slobbering tongue!
You've conjured up an interestingly brutal character which I can't seem to remove my eyes from due to its unusual appearance. The angry colour scheme adds to the ferocity of this artwork and really ups its appeal for me. Both the thumbnail preview and the piece itself is very impressive indeed.
The shading is fantastically clean and I admire your use of a distant blurred effect for Belalai's left hand: it really adds motion to the art.
If I were to select two favourite elements from the character, in terms of composition and shading, I'd have to go with the facial hair and the inner walls of that gruesome mouth. They're both parts that I find very striking and the colouring for the hair especially is superb.
This was great to view. I congratulate you for this illustration and also your friend for a brilliant character concept.
