Dream Charmer by SunDier Dream Charmer by SunDier
This guy appeared in a dream of mine recently and I really wanted to draw him up cause I found him pretty interesting. This is his other form, in the dream he had a human form as well, but had a habit of shifting forms accidentally whenever he was in an excited state. He also had the ability to touch souls in this form.

I did take artistic license and changed a few things, but mainly just darkened his skin color.

Thank you! I love the concept as well. Ever since I started collecting bones I've begun having dreams with animal skulls and bones, though this was a pleasant surprise!

This is gorgeous! I love your use of color and shading, and the former Bio-Anth major in me loves the detail in his skull.

Would it be okay if I use him as a reference picture in my D&D campaign for a custom monster?

Thank you! I was glad to have teachers who used skulls as still life subjects because
they became one of my favorite subjects to draw!

Ah, if you mean like taking inspiration from that's fine, but I'm not quite sure what
you meant in your question by reference, if you could possibly clear that up for me.

Take inspiration from, and show a picture of him to the group. I'd make sure to give credit.

Yeah man go for it!
I wish I could remember what the other one looked like, all I can remember
was that he had sort of an average or even slightly lanky body shape.

You're welcome~ I actually have yet to draw their human form (because human... :\ ) But their feral form is quite similar... Just feral! cx fav.me/d9mwttb In his human form I imagine the skull to be like a mask, but actually the head, (JUST like it your picture, which makes it so cool)  with his mane/ fur acting like a cloak. 
That is so cool that you were able to dream up this awesome character though! Can't say I ever dreamed up a cool enough design to draw xD

Ooh I enjoy their feral form, love the mane and those markings!
Yeah it's real neat when your dreams create things like that.
I know I've seen other interesting creatures appear in my
dreams before, especially one not too far back with these
giant Wyrm-like beasts scaling up burning skyscrapers.

I've only ever sketched up one other dream creature, here.
They were the beasts in the dream I mentioned.

I bust love it. The lion skull looks perfect, and that gold in the background is so well done. I'd honestly love to see this as a real traditional oil painting.

Thank you! It took me a little bit to figure out what his skull resembled most,
but working with the lion skull was real fun! I'm glad you enjoy it and agree that
it would also look wonderful as an oil painting. Maybe one day I will try working
with oils again.
