Huznullah by TwilightSaint Huznullah by TwilightSaint
~~~

*FULL-VIEW FOR ALL DETAILS!*

Wow, introducing my latest character - Huznullahi, or Huznu for short...though Huznullah sounds best. :P Arabic for 'Sadness of God.'

I don't want to reveal much of the backstory yet, for sake of not having many illustrations other than Skeezit up yet... But Huznullah lives far away from where Skeezit lives, but they do team up. But Huzn is from a desolate desert region - banished from the mainlands by the new Institution, which seeks to eradicate the old traditions...including the old Hizb al-Haqq, or Keepers of Truth, which include Huzn and a few other special dragons that you'll meet soon, inshallah. ;)

Combining my loves of dragons, history, religion, and science fiction all in one...ah yeah...

Also, YES, I can do scaly dragons! In fact, from both Saint's and Chris' stories, there are scaly Western European dragons, including Flint, but I never take the time to do their scales. *cough*lazybah*cough* So I chose to fully scale Huzn - originally just sporting shin-scales and belly-scales - in order to force myself to practice - and I do, really, honestly, love legit-scaled dragons...

So, also plan to see more scaled dragons coming soon too. :P

Abdulaziz/Skeezit is very lithe and flowy...so, in contrast, Huzn, (and some others coming,) are bolder, more muscular in their form. There's a reason for this, as their story will lay out, inshallah...

So yeah.

Ballpoint pen sketch coloured in PSE.

Feel free to critique both the scales and shading.

(I gotta say thought...I battled with the background. I really wanted this one to be striking, but it turned out rather flat. So any pointers/suggestions for upping the anty on this bg would be much appreciated. ;) )

Enjoy!

Is he related to Muzafr, by any chance? They look remarkably similar.

Not directly, but they could be from the same line of dragons...

I FRICKIN' LOVE IT! If you see Huznu in one of my pieces, chances are, it'll be a tribute. Black and gold is one of my favorite color combinations, very 80's.

Having the background kind of plain and simple allows us to appreciate all of the detail you put into Huznu's design. I do like the pattern of his scale/plates, and how they conform to his muscular build. I also dig his spikiness generally, though I would think it's hard to do stuff with those big, curved claws on his hands!

Yeah, that's what I wanted - I'm still unsure of whether I like the mid-tones or not... (Though there's totally Arabic in the background. :ninja: )
And thanks! Like I said, I love scales...and I'm taking advantage of these guys to practice. :salute: Hahaha, another friend asked how he'd fly with all those spikes - I think he'd have to be veeeery careful! :rofl: But the spines are on the underside of his wings, sooo...
And yeah, he totally needs to trim those fingernails. >.< :XD:
