He's a character (albeit not the main one) of a story I'm working on, the same story with the creature that I posted last week. I like how he worked out. A bit of a different style than what I posted, but I really wanted to capture his character. I like the sketch plus paint feel of this one

The first really good illustration I've done in a while. This is a Duenda. What's a Duenda? The word "Duenda" is stolen from the Spanish "Duende" which means imp or something like that. Dunedas are like the old "little people" or "fairies" who were more prone to play tricks on people than grant wishes. The kind that stole babies and such. The kind that people put milk out for, so they'd be appeased.

Duendas are part of a story that I'm working on right now. Unfortunately, the story itself is unlikely to turn into a children's book.
