This was a character for a story. The client/writer has an interesting perspective on the drow, or dark
elves. Usually described as having oil-black skin, she visualized them as just having dark complexions, similar to african
skin. The result was quite fascinating.
The first is the most recent, "The Drow Book", where we used a combination of a number of facial references to create the
right face for him.
The next is an older illustration of the same character (titled "The Study"), and was produced in 1997.
