Ice King - Subeta by Arborish Ice King - Subeta by Arborish
Ahh, this fellow has been waiting all winter for the BC to come back. xD It's been a while since I drew him, but I think he came about because I had the urge to draw something thick and not terribly cuddly. xD

Ice texture. Lots of it.

Oh this is absolutely lovely! I really like his mouth area, and you did an excellent job on the icy texture!

You totally nailed the "Thick 'n not cuddily"

Sadly, I'd still want to cuddle it =/

Question, does he have hooves or just really big toes? If toes, how many?

Its been a while since he was drawn, so I dont remember EXACTLY what was going through my head. I think they're hard nail/claw/I guess hoof like substances. Probably not very mobile, dont protrude a whole lot, and there are three of them. Two on the front, and one on the back/side area as kind of a thumb claw placement I think I had elephants and rhinoceros on the brain back when I was sketching him.

HOLY COW, I love this guy even more in this size. I LOVE how you did the texture, all the crazy lines really add to it. It must of been a lot of work but a lot of fun to do. It makes me want to make an ice like character.

It was an adventure, trying to figure out that sort of rough ice texture that i knew I wanted. xD I'd draw things in solidly, and then go crazy with the eraser is how I ended up doing it in the end, I think.
