Anders gets a chance to visit Ser Pounce-a-lot in Amaranthine! Aww... Also, he remembered to shave!
This is a trade for Faynore
over at MangaBullet. I will post a link to her trade here when it is finished

I usually don't draw fanart, but I've been doing trades for practice, and I told my trader I'd draw Anders. I used a photo reference of a dude holding a cat
, which was actually a great find since it was exactly the pose I wanted him in. Woo!
Despite the reference, this was SOOO HARD and I think it's because I was trying to do realistic and stylized art at the same time. It ended up looking kind of like Mucha's style...which I guess I'm ok with. But I think his head is too big. I seem to do that a lot.
And all of the mistakes in his outfit happened because I was using my actual game for costume reference, and couldn't see certain parts until after I'd immortalized them in ink...woohoo! Except for his capelet thing, I have no idea what's up with that.
I'm considering buying those sepia Copic liners
I've been wanting just so I can add his stubble. At least I know I'll have a use for them, now!
