Character Design: Xaisen by CoolSurface Character Design: Xaisen by CoolSurface
We’ve been lucky enough to have been asked by author Mark Saint (who has one of the coolest voices in the world!) to illustrate the character designs for his upcoming book “Deseble Rising”. Although we’ve got to keep quiet on the specifics, we are allowed to show you the very alluring Xaisen. Keep an eye out for more character designs showing up soon.

Thanks Roberto, great of you to say :) There are a few more in the pipeline as soon as my bigger projects get cleared (I have a very nice client commissioning these from me who isn't rushing me)

I know the feeling, I've been on and off Twitter a lot this month as work keeps demanding my full attention. I duck my head in whenever I can though

This one was all me. Sarah's involvement has reduced drastically since she's got heavily pregnant, the slacker! ;)

She's 31 weeks and 1 day in so it won't be long before before I get to find out whether it's a boy or girl! :D

Thanks SK, I'm particularly pleased you mentioned that as the skin and the hair were chosen by the author but the costume colur scheme was all down to me
