A Tressym and Her Tiefling by darchala A Tressym and Her Tiefling by darchala
Mebrit and his familiar Tiramisu, out for a walk.

I first sketched (and sloppily painted) this three years ago, and finally overhauled it. Don't ask me how long this version took. I don't want to talk about it. D:

For those who are unfamiliar with the chap, Mebby is a hedge wizard, bookworm, pastry fanatic, former Hive-dwelling streetrat, and occasional cat burglar. He presently works as the chef for a very peculiar inn somewhere in Sigil. Tira keeps a very watchful eye on the heating vents and makes sure that they don't try to pull anything.

His cloak was based somewhat on [link] and the detail shots be here: [link]

Beautifully done!

The textures are amazing... love the wings, the hair, and the scarf especially; my hand cramps for you in sympathy. ;)

Our latest adventuring group has been hanging out quite a bit in Sigil... we may have to stop by for the cooking! ;)

A beautiful example of a tressym, right down to them having us.

Beautiful composition. I love how smooth it looks. Like a black and white photo.

I love it,
the sheer fact of mentioning who's the cat in this picture (forgive me, I meant Tressym) makes this a virtuous masterpiece.

I love the details you put into the glasses and the individual stitches on the scarf, but Mebrit looks very feminine... before reading your description, I thought he was a girl.

Yeah, I *really* made his shoulders too narrow in this one (his face is girly too, but that doesn't bother me as much :lol:).

His glasses are just adorable ^_^

I love the soft texture everything looks like it has in this picture, and the black and white gives it a sort of, well, nostalgic feeling I guess. Like an old photo.

It's lovely! All your characters have a certain kind of coolness to them I dig.

I can't say enough that I love the detail you place into your picture. Excellent job. I love his scarf and his glasses.

Gorgeous. It almost looks like a photo - such smooth tones. You've done such a good job on this - what lovely textures. :love:

Oh, spectacular! Well done! Damn, this is impressive. I'm salivating over the details.

The title scared me... Tressym is very close to my name.
