Haha oops this is actually hardly what I had in mind. But I drew that head and I was just like “fuck”. And I ran away with it a bit….. PowerOutage for unkorea-fr
Anyway, I have a headcanon that somewhere along the line, there is a genetic alteration to Shadow mirrors that enable them to use echolocation as a means of finding prey and navigating the forest. their stiff frills have adapted to be used similar to that of a bat’s. This trait can be passed down to faes as well.
I also love the idea that his bulb could potentially attract prey, especially animals that wander into the Tangled Woods. I shortened the tail and extended the membrane down a bit to allow for a little more agility. Mirrors typically run, but I liked giving this guy a bit of a more bat-like look. I also made the wings slightly translucent, so you can barely see the limbs on the other side. Couldn’t incorporate any of the apparel with this pose (I totally forgot about the scars until the end, and my hand hurt too much by then XD )
I’m open for commissions like these! (Albeit, a little more clean, this is just a sketch with color)
And a rebagel here, cos it’s been ages since I’ve updated this.
