whoa, gotta love the golden-tan skin and the outfit too! and the blue eyes...and the long dark hair...tell me, how tall is he? (maybe he fits the tall dark and hansome category, eh?) and the background is too cool.

Hey guys, thanks for the nice comments! ^^ Deril is actually the third in the series. I'm part of a couple Harry Potter RPG's, and I've been doing a series of original characters from one of the games I'm involved in. The Slytherin and Ravenclaw belong to a friend of mine. They're in my devart gallery. Deril's the Hufflepuff, and he's mine. ^^ He's 17, a Virgo, has silver-grey eyes, dyed-black hair about shoulder-blade length, he's about 155 lbs, and stands about 6'1. He just grew into his height recently. >D He had two older brothers, identical twins, who are played by another friend of mine. I still need to find an original Gryff from the game to draw.

Thank you guys again for the warm welcome, and the nice comments! I've been going through a tough time, and I really appreciate the warm sentiments... ^_^
