True Nature by ThisLittleBluebird True Nature by ThisLittleBluebird
"What if the disposition you have now... isn't your true nature? What could be lurking under your skin?"

I've been tossing around the idea of Dullahan's fate lately. He's not an epic hero, so I'm deciding, what is he? I remembered that supposedly, the Cu Sith could kill a man with three bays, purely from fear. They're death omens. Well, more like death promises. I've been delving into ways I can bring some of that hereditary darkness together.

Also, this is my first completely lineless piece! The layer lock is my friend. :) Also, I only used 2 brushes. 1 for the background, and 1 for Dul'.

I would really like honest critique on this, so feel free to speak your mind! NOPE THAT IS DEFINITELY NOT AN ADELIS IN THE BACKGROUND NOPE NOPE NOPE TOTALLY NOT >.> ... <.< ... >.>

I think my heart just stopped for a second. I really do. Thank you so much! I really can't believe this right now, kiiiiinda losin' my marbles over here. You're so nice, aaaah I can't handle it.

By the way, if you have a reference lying around, I'll totally draw up your avatar/persona. It's the least I could do.

As soon as I saw this in my inbox I was like: a bunch of us voted anti-hero...what have we done?!
XD

Um, what's an Adelis?

Hahaha!!

Oh, an Adelis is a canine shadow demon in the Crimson Riding Hood lore created by ~Pachiku13. It's quite similar to a Cu Sith so I decided to make that his shadow, to foreshadow things. So it's shadowy all around, haha. XD (I noticed I overused the word so excuse my bad joke lol)

Ah, I had mentally imagined Ik El going, "you're not going to join the lupus formation, are you Dullahan?"
(And no, at this point she's not looking very decisive about choosing sides or whatnot.)

I don't remember seeing a bestiary. XD
I guess it's one of those quieter snippets of lore heh.

that tots look like an adelis lurking in the back ground... I mean what adelis? there's no adelis there!

I like dull's mouth as he snarls, but his eyebrows make him look worried or scared

I don't see an Adelis??? I think you're over thinking this.


Well yeah, he is. Its more of a snarl of pain than anger. I guess I should have made that a little more obvious.
