Voltaire - marker drawing by oomizuao Voltaire - marker drawing by oomizuao
I haven't drawn this guy in forever. In fact I'd almost forgotten completely about him...! I like drawing him though, so I'll definitely do it again sometime. Voltaire is one of my oldest characters actually. I'm a bit unsure whether he came before Spike or not...? hm.... Anyways. He's been altered a lot from how he looked like the first time. I like his current design the most though. I'm thinking of merging him with another character of mine, because they're so alike that I figured it would be awesome if they were actually the same person... :D 
I'm babbling now, sorry.
But I hope you guys like this :3
I drew it with ShinHan Touch markers (the ones with brush nibs), and a pen that resembles the Pentel Brush Nib Pen Whatchamacallits... I took a photo of it with my cellphone, edited it in one of those app thingies, and I kind of like how it turned out after it'd been edited.. ^^;
A less edited version can be seen on my instagram page (ozoozou).

Just for fun:

Here's Voltaire's 2nd design, along with the original story he was part of: 
the Demon Hunter by oomizuao

And here he is after a total "makeover":

exactly what kind of tribes man is he? A nomad a farmer a heard Shepard and what climate does he live in? The mountain's a desert some grass lands like the Great Plains North America or the Serengeti Africa or one of the various types of jungles or do some of these features come together?

Incredible work. To think this was all done with marker. Simply amazing.

Is he blind in one eye, or just heterochromic?

he's prettymuch blind on one eye, yes. :o
Thanks for your question, and sorry for the late reply.. ^^;

Np. I gotta say, your visual art is phenomenal. You're probably my favorite artist on deviant art. And even though, your book,  judging from your updates, still has a ways to go until completion, I'm counting down the days until I see it on a shelf while I'm in a Barnes and Noble.
