Finished gift for CuetCalib with our GW2 Rangers, my Undil the Skald and his Biosynergist Qalib. He did a sweet gesture for me and the partner MisterMidnight and even though I didn't have to draw this, I wanted to as a show of appreciation.

He and his characters always love to joke and entertain the thought of Undil giving them rides on her shoulders and both she and Qalib love talking about their birds so how could I resist drawing this? She's such an oddity among Norn in that her best friends are all Asura, hah.

Also a color gradient and ballpoint experiment to see if I can find ways of rendering detail without it taking ridiculous amounts of time. The inking from start to finish took about 5 to 6 hours, so I'm quite satisfied with that.

    My favorite parts of this are how you rendered Undil's freckles and the owl's feathers!

    I love it when you do these transitioning color pieces.
