#8 Vander, Son of Ebrim

| November 9, 2010 | 14 Comments

Son of one of the most powerful Djinn to have walked the earth, Vander Gabon’s life is about to change…

From Wikipedia: Jinn (Arabic: جن jinn, singular جني jinnī; variant spelling djinn) or genies are supernatural creatures in Arab folklore and Islamic teachings which occupy a parallel world to that of mankind. Together, jinn, humans and angels make up the three sentient creations of Allah. According to the Qur’ān, there are two creations that have free will: humans and jinn. Religious sources say little about them; however, the Qur’an mentions that jinn are made of smokeless flame or “the fire of a scorching wind”. They have the ability to change their shape. Like human beings, the jinn can also be good, evil, or neutrally benevolent.

(I can’t say much about this next set of characters, but with luck you’ll be seeing more of them in the months to come.) ~D

    Whoa there, Dan! Upping the bar, are you? LOVE the vortex, and lighting, but the vortex above all. I wonder if there are more djinns in your list though!!

    Simply beautiful! Just one thing to say–I’d liek to have seen the left hand just as detailed (as in joints and knuckles) as the right hand. Otherwise, it’s an absolutely splendid illustration!

      Merci Violet 🙂 And thanks about the hand. It’s always a struggle to figure out what to focus time on, and I tend to float around the image as I work…I’ll be streaming one or two of these one night in the future…
