A Chinese novel by A Qi.
A sorcerer that can hide demons as tattoo in the body.
Edit- Lol, is it really obvious that he's a guy? Because in the novel he is very feminine looking and that put me off at first, but then I grew to love his personality. My mum noticed that the necklace he's wearing is a good luck charm for children(because I had that before xD), I meant for that because despite being a 2-faced manipulative bastard at times he really is pretty childish at heart.
Well, at first glance I would figure him to be male, but very feminine. But that's more the chest than anything - seeing just the face I would've probably thought he was at the very least very androgynous. Well, more so than the whole picture. You know what I mean.
All that said: Amazing work. I genuinely do not know how you do that. It must've taken more hours than I could imagine... Most definitely shows. I love how parts of the background seem to fade into a watercolor piece that seems less detailed but still totally fits. Is that thing around him - the serpent-fish thing - one of the demons?
Also: The design of the clothes. I always adore how you do those. It makes me wish I was a better art critic just so I could tell you how amazing it is in detail.
But in any case, this is an absolutely gorgeous picture! Every time I look at it I find another detail to fall in love with!
What is it called?
