hejkal by faQy hejkal by faQy
little picture for :iconurdengro: :hug:
hejkal's kind of forest-bogeyman from czech fairy-tales :3 (true....in my imagination he's more dark and scary, but...eh...i like drawing happy pictures :blushes: )

This looks to be a good old fashioned trickster, which isn't too far from a boogeyman in the right circumstances. It's great how I can't tell where he ends and the background begins, it seems like he's still settling on what shape he wants to take. His expression is also great, it looks like he's just thinking about the perfect way to trick someone.
And just because he's harmless and happy at the moment, doesn't mean he can't drop the facade. It'd be great to see a story with this guy in it, just because he seems like the kind of character who would purposefully lead the audience (and characters) on in one direction, before pulling the rug from under their feet and acting as if it was his plan all along.
All in all, a great piece, I look forward to seeing more. Many Thanks.
What do you think?

Wonderful textures here...it adds a very nice contrast with the character's skin.

You've given him an absolutely brilliant expression, and I love the lively colours. He must me plotting something, eh?

"Beware of the guys with red eyebrows!")))

Thank you, I`m very happy! Such awesome cone-like horns and yellow eyes) And facial expression)

How to pronounce - he[dʒ]kal or he[j]kal? (I don`t know any Czech tales, except of Josef Lada`s "Mischievous Tales", and this word is new for me))

I love how dimensional the face is and how flat the hair is, it's an interesting contrast.

I love the different patterned patches and the expression on his face. And the fact that he only has three toes on each foot :D
