This is a picture I drew for my eldest nephew in real life for his birthday. This character is based off of him in that, like in real life, my character also has the same number of nieces and nephews in order of age.
In this picture, I show the eldest of D. Dan's nephews in a pose as though in a painting. The painting in question is to celebrate his birthday and coming of age as an adult. the character is a senior in a prepatory academy and is due to graduate. Wearing the school uniform, he poses with a simple shield and sword showing the style of comba, weaponry and armor he is intent on learning in the royal military academy upon graduating. His school uniform is cross between standard military and Victorian era aristrocratic clothing, both from the 19th century.
Though D. Dan and his nephew look similar, the difference between them is that D. Dan's feathers have a very faint purple color to them due to being platinum like in color. Also, D. Dan has purple eyes. His nephew, however, has silver colored feathers with a faint blue to them, and his eyes are blue.
D. Dan's nephew, named Andros Centurion Emanuel Dan, has the nickname of ACE due to the initials of his name and his tendency to excell. The last time I drew this character was the first time I have drawn him, along with most of D. Dan's other nephews and nieces, in the picture https://www.furaffinity.net/view/6797106/ . ACE is at the top of the stairs being the eldest. Though that picture was drawn about 8 months ago, the picture is meant to depict a family portrait of the children 2 years ago. As such, ACE looks a tad younger with the preteen look on him still, at the time. In addition, in that picture, he is wearing his sophmore school uniform whereas the picture above has him in his senior school outfit.
The picture was first drawn with a 2H pencil. Then it was inked using an XS Faber-Castell ink pen. Then it was given tones using brush pens of warm and cool greys, also from Faber-Castell. After I completed the picture, I scanned it. Then, since it is a gift for my nephew, I had it framed in a wood frame with a nice matted border around the image. It looked even more badass after having it framed. Plus my nephew, in real life, loves the picture I made. ^\/^.
