Jakob in armour (collab)

This is my inking and colouring of a picture shadrok did as a surprise present for me. Jakob usually has wings on his head and back but they can easily be hidden if he wishes to pose as a Being instead of the incubus that he is.
Though the fact that he's holding a flag belonging to his own 'cubi clan is a bit of a giveaway. (Maybe Shadrok hadn't drawn them yet, I forgot to ask :3 )

I have amended the picture slightly by losing the chainmail-wrapped tail and drawing in a smaller, more woflike tail that is unprotected. That means he would risk having it chopped off in battle, but that's not a crippling injury and he could get it regrown magically anyway. At the end of the day it looked cuter so that's what I went with.

Chainmail is a problem for me at the best or times and I couldn't get the lighting to match nicely. There was also a banded armour version but I didn't really like that either, it was like he had a metal beehive hanging from his rear.
The background was pinched from one of my comics.

The original pencils are here: https://www.weasyl.com/submission/1171460/jakob-in-armor

Pencils by shadrok, ink and colour by me.
Go watch him, he could use some more love and feedback.

Thanks again for doing this, it was a nice surprise!
