Yeah, it's his name. He is self-conceited young mage, who is also can use adulation as a way to achieve his own goals. I think he is hybrid character from few fantasy chars. Though I named him after some episodic character from Tanith Lee book. I use this method of naming characters sometimes, though it's still my OC, referring original name-holder very slightly. I've started it more than a year ago and pictured him by fits and starts. I dunno, if you meant how much hours it took... about 20, I think.
I thank you very dearly for the detailed description! It sounds like a very interesting char, and I think he would get along well with my Atevora. I find it remarkable, that (even without further information about the person on the drawing) I gave the impression that it was a magical theme.
20 hours. Quite a long time. But it is able to see all the care with which Darios was painted. ^.^
whoops Accidentally i have sent the message too early. XD I wanted to write more about the drawing: The image is done very well! The colors looks very harmonious and the bluish light makes everything looks very magical.
