Roommates - Mist and Madness by AsheRhyder Roommates - Mist and Madness by AsheRhyder
An early updated cover for Roommates, because I'm running out of room in the gigantic binder that holds the hard copies of the comics. Also, I'm rather pleased with how this turned out.

Here we have the Erlkonig and his daughter, glimpsed infrequently and usually hazily throughout the last fifty or so pages. In case anyone was wondering about the colors, or about what the Erlkonig looked like under that cloak, here you go.



Since they're originally folklore characters, they get no official credits, but there are a number of incarnations, poems, and compositions you can use for influence.

He looks exactly how Jim Butcher described him in the Dresden Files. I thought that's who you were bringing in... damn so gorgeous!

^w^ I can never get enough, and hey you should sometime add Rumpelstiltskin (once upon a time) ^^ Jareth and him would have a sparkly field day. A friend of mine cosplays Jareth and Just loves your version. We spent all night talking about Roommates and how we want to do a photo shoot of the fight of how to pronounce croissant.

The Erlkonig's best known classical incarnation was as a spirit/fae that stole (read: killed) children...

Is he baldish or does he simply have a fleshy colored inner helmet area? I'm guessing flesh-colored helmet. Also this is my favorite cover yet.

His hair and skin tones are remarkably similar in color, though I do promise they're actually different. His hair is just really straight and smooth.
