I figured I'd post this as a prompt, as Thanalos (seen previously) is due to make a proper debut. As I said in the initial image: he does NOT go without long sleeves, gloves, and high-necked shirts.. this was more for fun/practice. (Although I suppose if he rolled out of bed in the middle of the night, he'd probably only throw on something to fend off the immediate cold in an emergency.. *excuses*)
I don't really like the rat-tail hairstyle myself but I do rather like drawing his.
The papers on the spear are used for shamanic magic. Than's magic is (with a big exception) relatively weak, but through certain items and practices, he can accomplish a lot more. Though whether it's viewed as old-fashioned or a substitute for weak magic-users by Magi and strong sorcerers.. I don't know. The beads are used differently but also for spells.
Thanalos can use the spear as a spear, but often it's just used to smack someone over the head with the blunt end, so also gets used like a rod/long pipe.
I think I was extra inspired to throw that sloppy snow in the background because there's a winter storm due to head my way, and I'm going out in it tomorrow to walk to the pool like the crazy person I am.
Thanalos is mine but he's of the ea-lec universe.
