Glad to see new artists joining, I'm sure you'll get a lot of requests! If you ever feel inspired of drawing a portrait of the Jundi (or advancements), I may use it for the main character of my campaign 'Return from the Abyss' (and it could possibly be useful for the other UMC khalifate campaigns).

Tell me more about it so I could have a better imagination of the character :3
with pleasure:
generalities about Jundis:

No, it's possible (and pather) to edit unit files, especially add-on ones (editing mainline files can depend on the OS of the user.). The hardest part (in my opinion) is making the art itself.
Got it!

I like your style and hope you enjoy learning and improving through the many requests people give you.
Welcome.

I don't know lol I'm quite new to the game, but if you would tell me more about his appearance, personal traits, personality, wearings, accessories, and so on, it would be very helpful.

I like your style.
If you still want to do more requests: I don't have a campaign right now (I've planned one, but it's propably never gonna get finished... or started), but I could add them to my era if I don't make that campaign.

If you're interested

Many, many thanks DBL.
I am a huge fan. That's going straight to the pool room!

One quick question, what's the strange black line at the bottom?

Right. Makes sense.
Thanks again. I'll get out of the way and let someone else reap the benefits of your skill now.

It looks amazing! :o
I don't have any competence to provide technical comments, but I must say that his expression and look fit really well the character and the story, I think they perfectly conveys his feeling in the cumbersome situation he is in, great job!
One comment is that from this sketch, he looks really young, but I suppose that depends on the details of the face not being sorted out yet.

Old enough as a 25 imo, unless what you want is not age, but certain traits, signs or you name it on his face.
If that is what you mean, what is it you want to add?

Yes, it could be that the skin looks very smooth or the fact that I was imagining him with some light facial hair, as saracens were often depicted. I'll let you decide according to your taste, it looks great anyway.

A rework of Sylph line art from Unfinished portraits thread(link below)
viewtopic.php?f=23&t=44724
Spoiler:
Since imo anatomy issues make it too costy to "fix", I choose to total rework, costed me only 2 hrs.
And since it looks too different from the one from op, I post it to my thread.
and I will, of course finish it in the end.

C&Cs welcomed.

Again, I think it would be nice if you posted shrunk sketches, and not full-size ones. The portrait itself looks cute, btw (and much better than The_Gnat's). It's nice that it isn't designed for a specific character, meaning that It can be used for multiple campaigns/characters.
