Oracle by CanisAlbus Oracle by CanisAlbus
Nineve, Chazaqiel's adopted daughter. She's nearly mute, extremely passive and completely blind (cataracts or glaucoma, maybe both) and is usually kept locked away in the inner chambers of his father's palace. Due to her aching eyes, the imperial council has decided to keep her heavily dazed by burning incence containing opioids in her sanctum.
Maybe because of the drugged condition, maybe because of a gift from higher powers, she's able to prophesy the future, which may have been the reason why she managed to arouse Chazaqiel's interest in the first place.

Old sketchy sketch from the last year. The character itself isn't even that new, she's been around for a year or so, I think. And she's a Saluki, thus humanlike hair. Though lately I've been thinking of changing her into a Xigou (which is a rare sighthound breed originating in China).

Pencil sketch and digital colors.

Everything! I'll draw in the same style. For a long time I was going to try. Experience and age allows! I am a dummy!

Is
it
in the style of
Alphonse Muha?

Are her ears under her hair or is the hair like ears?

Her ears are similar to those of an Afghan Hound, meaning that they're lop and covered in long and silky fur that also covers the top of the head.

Eye diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts sure are horrid and painful things when taken to as extreme as in this case, but somehow I can't help to see some unusual beauty in them as well~

heh yeah. My Grampa has both those issues with his eyes. had to have surgery to correct it. But I find it peculiar when dogs have it. It's something most people don't think about when it comes to characters. It's like they're not allowed "imperfections" ya know? I appreciate that you consider it :)

Haha, yesh, for once I actually created a female character which doesn't bore me to death! Goodie.
I was reading about glaucoma one day and found out that cannabis is used to treat eye diseases, and suddenly:
--> opiods such as cannabis were also used in the place and historical period where the story of these characdurrs occur
--> drugs cause hallucinations which may be interpreted as divination
-->Swoosh, drugged prophet with glaucoma created herself
