Dealmaker by CanisAlbus Dealmaker by CanisAlbus
Don't let his silver tongued words mesmerize you, or soon you'll find yourself lured into his web of lies.

As a side blabbering: I've said this numerous times before and I'll say it once again; I don't support smoking and I've never smoked a single cigarette myself. However, I think I may have some sort of thing for cigarette holders and really long, narrow pipes and I just can't help it. They work really well as an aesthetic element, not to mention the fact that my characters are essentially products of their time and during some of those times smoking was not only widely accepted, but also idolized. Same goes for drinking and all kinds of drugs. In fact, it's surprising to see how many of my characters use at least one of those regularly.
Oh, and a random character fact; Masque uses women's cigarette holders. There is such things for men too, but those are often noticeably shorter. I guess he just likes all things flamboyant and eccentric.

You've done so well bringing out such caricature in your characters. I particularly like this fellow. Unfortunate that people struggle understanding particular symbols and habits that you bring out in your characters. I myself am becoming rather interested in characters perhaps smoking simply because it's a habit and a curious one at that. I mean really, one of the most interesting parts of character development must be exploring their bad habits.

Love his cigarette holder and just how plain impish he looks. Great pose and mood too, it really looks like he's pulling you into a deal you'll regret later.
Ugh, your work, I can't-- :heart: Excellent piece.

I love the lighting in this piece and the sketchy quality of your hatching and the background. I also really like how you inked his tail <3

Something about the smell and look of cigarette smoke is actually calming to me. I think it is because my grandparents used to smoke a lot.

I've never smoked before though, I never really wanted to.

I saw the wip on tumblr and found it really original and very dynamic somehow. I find those kind of poses really hard to do, especially with anthros due the snout ouo
But you, are a really talented person! I really love it. One of my favorites pics of yours :heart:

Oi, niin tykkään kuvan tunnelmasta, ja siitä kuinka olet saanut hahmosta noin persoonallisen ja ilmeikkään.
Kuulen mielessäni millainen ääni hänellä on xD
