Joscelin Verreuil of the Kushiel Legacy Trilogy

I knew I would get him finished eventually; this is one of two paintings of Joscelin sitting on my harddrive.  Finally got this one to the point I felt it could be finished.  I focus really hard on modelling his face the way I saw him in my head; hence the straight on, deadpan look.  It was all about capturing that look that I had for him.  Happily, I think I succeeded.  I’m pretty happy with this one right now ❤

I invented a wardrobe piece of his that was not in the books; the small pendant he’s wearing has been nicknamed Cassiel’s Promise, something the Cassiline Brotherhood gives out to their Priests upon their leaving the monastery.  Or something like that >_>
