Answering this since it's my character heheh
But the staff is designed to be like the staff of a mage, a vessel that amplifies magic and spells
He's a ranged magic fighter, so he usually avoids close combat at all costs, but the staff can be used as an effective counter weapon if need be
Hope that answers your questions c:
This is. A long comment I apologize I ramble when I am excited eheh <3
This looks absolutely amazing! I know I said earlier how perfect it was but I really mean it, you drew Xziq absolutely perfect! His pose and confident stance is just so him, and that expression with that grin is amazing! I love your style and the anatomy of this, those legs and feet are beautifully drawn, same with his arms and hands. The shaping and detailing of his chest is awesome and I really love his long neck and the shape of his face. The horns and spikes are awesome, and especially his claws.
Loving your lines, they are wonderfully detailed, especially on his face and on the accessories and his staff
He just looks amazing, so powerful with a demanding presence and just...love this so much. The coloring is awesome, so smooth and pretty and I love how you drew in his markings. The shading is wonderful as well, your cell shading is nice and clean and uniform and accents the shadows and muscle structure perfectly.
And all the little things, like the highlights on the spikes and in his eye and the shine of his armour, just add so much depth to this as well
And the finishing touches, the texture and color adjustments, are all amazingly well done. I really like the ice-like sparkle and orb stuff in his hand, and the way it glows and flakes off and everything. The glow of his eye makes the red stand out so nicely against the blues of his color scheme as well...and this is just absolutely beautiful in all ways. The background colors and texture is really well done too and accents him perfectly
I am in absolute love with this. Thank you so much for drawing him so perfectly for me, and for letting me watch as well! Keep up the amazing work <3
