Huldrekarl and Lantern Man by humon Huldrekarl and Lantern Man by humon
My site humoncomics.com/

Trying to get back into drawing after my operation, and what better way than pretty guys and folklore?

Dude is a huldrekarl (Before you ask where the hole in his back is, it's behind his shoulder), and the small guy is a lygtemand (lantern man), the Scandinavian version of the alluring lights in swamps. The huldrekarl doesn't have to worry about fire hazards because lantern men burn cold.

I think the Tail is a bit too high. Should be positioned at the curve of the bottom (the Coccyx) rather than the small of the back. (Sacrum) ;p
Other than that, an interesting OC. 8-)

I didn't realize the lantern man was standing on the huldrekarl's stem thingy.

the design of lygtemand is most like the design of Ukobach in Castlevania Aria of The Sorrow o.o

Aww! I love the huldrekarl's eyes. They're like big green drops. But I will admit I keep on thinking he looks a little like Ron Weasley in the fourth movie! (you know, when he's got that long curly hair.)

The lygtemand is awesome also! I love how it's sort of like a will o the wisp but instead it looks a little more  like a fire demon than a misty white light.

He's a handsome boy that one. What are the stones on his waistband? It looks like he's wearing spiderweb and garnets.

Get well soon, Humon, we all love you, and we've been missing you a lot.

This is traditional coloring?? What'd you use, it looks great. Especially the hair, tail and fire. Also, I love it when you use mythological creatures and the like in your work.
