This is the final version of the Night Gaunt illustration. I decided to put a surprisingly different take on the creature with the nib at the belly button-place. The eyes instead of the nipple were a first hint in the process of the work, that I´d take some freedom here in defining the creature in my very own way. However, if it wouldn´t be a personal work, I´d have painted whatever you´d ask me to do, but I find this is a very nice thing that gives the recipient a smile at the second view on it.
Other than that, the outer “glow” is defined more precisely and some hint of wetness is applied on the skin with some standard brushes set to spread.
