commission: Canaan by Toshinho commission: Canaan by Toshinho
Commission Client:
:iconwaffleleech:

A custom commission I did recently. I had various references and text explanation with some freedom to draw the character.

A quote from the text explanation which I tried to follow among various demands in design arrangement.
The general idea is a "Royal librarian who wishes to become a knight"; he's more librarian than knight, but he's not delusional and he is aware of his limitations.

Reference I used:

Oh, new pose for commissions! Well, at least more frontal; it is true that the usual pose is the one that shows the most of a character. It really looks like he has his feet on the ground. :D

Reminds me of cool ocean breezes and a sandy beach!

Love the librarian knight part of it, too!
Sounds like a Disgaea character class! :)

In a way, I'm slightly crushed because I thought his neck armor(?) was his beard; and instantly he was the coolest swordsman ever! So much for having good eyesight lol
But anywho, I like this! Especially that he has that books on him!

*Random memory* I once made a Paladin in Baldur's Gate and his strength was so low that his sword & armor was the max amount of weight he could carry lol! So my friend declared him to be, *Ahem* "The Official Document Bearer" xD

But I really like this, and the subtle texture of his cloak as well =)
