Jinn by neronin Jinn by neronin
this fella is a child of my imagination. one day it sorta popped into my head and i had to draw him.

while drawing i noticed a certain similarities to the image of a jinn (particularity marid type) so i went for it and placed him on a fiery dune to further strengthen the mood i feel a drawing of a jinn should have.

lines and colors by yours truly :D
please tell me what u think of it! :D
comments, constructive critics and :+fav:s welcome as always

INFO:
In Islam and pre-Islamic Arabian folklore, a genie (also jinn, djinn, from Arabic جني jinnī;) is a supernatural creature made from 'smokeless fire' which possesses free will.
Types of djinn include the ghul (“night shade”, which can change shape), the sila (which cannot change shape), the ifrit (pronounced [iˈfɾɪt]), and marid (pronounced [mʌˈɾɪd]). According to the information in The Arabian Nights, marid seem to be the strongest form of djinn, followed by ifrit, and then the rest of the djinn forms.

I think it might b the neck to, not sure. The trilogy is about a young magician that summons a djinn called bartimaeus. Djinn, imps and other spirits hate being summoned to the physical world and so they all try to escape and hate magicians. Well, the young magician and bartimaeus develop an odd relationship and have some cool adventures.

Wow, that's sweet.

His left forearm (not the one touching his face) seems too skinny, and the pattern on the pants seems copy-pasted in some places, his neck also feels a little long, that or his head is too small...

Overall, it's very nice, I tottally dig the background
