Ah! Yes! I thought that's who this was from the thumbnail. One of the most interesting characters from the book.

I finally got the chance to read the book, and now I'm at that part. I really wanted to look at this picture before I continue reading.
It's also "Graograman" in Romanian.
"Moartea Multicoloră"

This is wonderfully done. I knew exactly what this. I was going to comment on the Neverending Story, but then noticed your caption.
Fantastic, really well done.

Schon als ich das Bild gesehen hab musste ich an die Unendliche Geschichte denken und da hab ich deine Beschreibung noch gar nicht gesehen.
Von daher.. eine großartige Umsetzung. Ich finde vor allem das Gesicht ist dir super gelungen.
Schöne Arbeit *Fav verpass* :)

Amazing looking.

Looks like ink

Reminds me of something which should be a tattoo...

So ... like, artistically creative and extravagant!
